Trading Partner Agreement Markup Language (tpaML) - Workshop July 27th & 28th

"tpaML defines how trading partners will interact at the transport, document exchange and business protocol layers. A TPA contains the general contract terms and conditions, participant roles (buyers, sellers), communication and security protocols and business processes, (valid actions, sequencing rules, etc.). XML-based TPA documents capture the essential information upon which trading partners must agree in order for their applications and business processes to communicate."

Do you have issues with the current tpaML specification?

If you are thinking that the specification needs work, we agree and invite you to a workshop on providing feedback to the specification and help move forward this critical cog in the B2B machinery. Because of this, the scope of the meeting will include all dynamic and static 'a priori type' information to facilitate transactions but contained outside the messages themselves:

- Trading Partner Agreements (traditional - legal)
- Trading Partner Agreements (organizations, local vs global)
- Trading Partner Agreements (application specific)
- Application Negotiation (see eCo)
- Application Definitions (with choreography - PIPS, protocols XMI)
- Service Level Agreements (with multi-part MIME & security)
- Service Level Agreements (outsourcing)
- Service Level Agreements (connection, leased lines)
- Trading Partner Templates (XML/edi Group, SEF, IMPDEF, etc.)
- Repository Interface (logical units with Bizcodes)

WHO should participate?
Any organization that stores this type of information and wants to be able to exchange easily this information with other parts of the organization or trading partners. By participating in tpaML, you assure your organization's capability to interoperate in a dynamic paradigm and possibly reduce the some overhead of up front costs associated with exchanges. 

What is the GOAL?
The goal of the workshop is simply to further work on tpaML, to collect thoughts and ideas in making the specification better and more complete. 

"It is such short notice; I would like to attend, but am unable, what are my options?"
Of course it is always nice to meet face to face on such technical issues, discuss in person with Marty Sachs and Mark Colan your thoughts, but if unable send your ideas via email to mwsachs@us.ibm.com for proper collection.  Also, for anyone unable to attend in person, there will be a conference call set up. This information will be coming in a subsequent email.  If you would like that information directly, please send me an email.

"I am convinced that attending is important to my organization, WHERE is the workshop?"  The workshop will take place at DISA's headquarters in Alexandria, Va. with directions and hotel information found at:

"WHEN is the workshop? "

Friday July 28th : 9:00 am until 1:00 pm
