Subject: The Growth Of The Internet Means Business Needs More EDI, Not Less
"The Growth Of The Internet Means Business Needs More EDI, Not Less," by Ken Vollmer (April 9, 2001) in InternetWeek; see http://www.internetweek.com/columns01/beat040901.htm. "During the past several years, it has been all too common to hear "experts" denigrate the potential of EDI in favor of some new solutions just around the corner. However, it is no coincidence that both ebXML and BizTalk Server--leading XML-based initiatives to build widespread e-business functionality--are fully supporting existing EDI transactions. After a lengthy review of the available options, the sponsoring organizations came to the same conclusion: EDI is the only practical e-business standard that makes sense for basic functionality at this time."
