> ebXML: The new language of electronic business
> The Electronic Business XML or ebXML initiative combines the best of the new 
> Web technology with previous experience of electronic transactions, and 
> promises to extend the benefits of business data exchange to companies of all 
> sizes anywhere in the world.
> Over the last 25 years most of the world's larger enterprises have exchanged 
> electronic transactions with their customers and suppliers in volumes that 
> today are measured in billions of dollars. However, only those organisations 
> with the deepest pockets and large support resources could afford the 
> development, software, and networks needed to make it work. Now, with the 
> availability of the Internet, organisations worldwide and in all sizes are 
> looking to do business electronically with each other, in ways which remove 
> dependencies on their trading partners and specific technology vendors. 
> The last year has seen an explosion in initiatives to provide the 
> infrastructure that enables small, medium and large organisations to conduct 
> business electronically using the Internet. Many of the initiatives share 
> common requirements in core infrastructure and to reduce reinvention and the 
> risks of incompatibility.  In November 1999, the UN CEFACT and OASIS 
> organisations came together to form the ebXML  initiative to develop a global 
> infrastructure for electronic business, based on public, proven standards, 
> and being freely open to all.  It represents the only global initiative of 
> its type in the industry today. As a result it now has the global backing and 
> participation of large and small vendors, key industry groups from both the 
> EDI and XML worlds, and end-users.
> The first phase of this 18-month work is now nearing completion and is 
> defining the framework by which all enterprises, irrespective of size, 
> location and implementation will interact and do business. This presentation 
> provides an insight into the ongoing work of ebXML and will discuss the 
> architecture defining the framework and how the specifications for transport, 
> business process, registry and repository and core components fit together.
