Subject: RE: [ebxml-dev] RE: [EDI-L] Announce - Latest Article on ebXML


No one in the current Oasis CPPA TC or in the
old ebXML TP group makes the assumption that ebXML
business relationships would have to be established
spontaneously, nor is that assumption at all
needed for either CPPs or CPAs to be useful.

Also, looking at the article at the end
of the referenced URL, which is a tad
negative by the way, there is a comparison of
CPPs and CPAs with X12 838s. I think
that is also a serious misunderstanding
of why CPPs and CPAs might be valuable
in terms of ROI. The CPP and CPA stuff
can reduce the configuration
time involved in adding another
business collaboration participant,
and do it interoperably.
It would thereby reduce the labor costs associated
with adding new collaborations. That may
not be important to a business that
only collaborates with 1 other business.
But it might be important to businesses
with, for example, 50 or more collaborators 
by reducing average
start up time from weeks to hours.

Does the CPPA group actually make this assumption, or this
a strawman?  Certainly nobody in ebXM/eBTWG/CPPA that I know
makes that assumption.

My understanding of the CPPA group is that they expect all possible
variations of casual and long-term business relationships to happen.
Personally, I tend to work with long-term contractual relationships,
as you describe.
