Subject: RE: What do people really expect from ebXML? -Transactions!
Interesting thread, but I think a point that is being missed is that the BP Spec allows the "well-developed framework" to be coded in a machine readable format. It's not adding anything new to the concept of trade and commerce, just getting the machines to do it. And to allow the business experts to change, experiment and manage what they do more efficiently and effectively. I envision a state where Lucent describes how it does business and trading partners either agree or establish an agreement. In either case it is expressed in a machine readable format that will allow us to more easily begin doing business. It will be a matter of configuration and activation, in a matter of minutes from the agreement "hanshake", not the days/weeks/months currently needed to hold meetings, decide on the messages, the process, the infrastructure, the project team, ... well you get the picture.

Is >it overkill? 1. Use it where you need it, don't where you don't. 2. The Business Transaction level of BPM (not the same as Philip Goatly's meaning of business transaction) bakes in the relevant well-developed framework of law, such as it applies to electronic commerce. And that level should be fairly easy to use. So is it overkill? Like everything else, it depends. It's the basically the same transaction model as RosettaNet, and they use it for domestic transactions. -Bob Haugen ------------------------------------------------------------------ To unsubscribe from this elist send a message with the single word "unsubscribe" in the body to: email@example.com
