Subject: RE: AW: [ebxml-dev] RE: [EDI-L] Article on ebXML Core Components ...
If the ebXML technology isn't TOTALLY transparent to the user, especially the SME, it will be just another EDI thing that they will avoid like the plague. ebXML MUST be under the hood and just run like a good engine. If the user of fax had to deal directly with the underlying technical standards in order to configure and use a fax machine, faxes would have died.

True...but Linux requires a lot of technical care and feeding typically, which most SME's will steer clear of. > I think the challenge for SMEs is ease of use and reliability. Absolutely. Turnkey would be ideal for many, especially in the medium tier. Or embedded in suitable applications for the smaller businesses. > We have to hope that most SMEs eagerly await ebXML. Here I disagree...in this economic climate, most SME's are pre-occupied with survival..increasing revenue, decreasing costs. They are not awaiting ebXML....I would bet most SME's probably have not even heard of ebXML. Just "hoping" for such a response is likely to be futile. That level of interest and adoption will require a concerted effort on the part of vendors to "build in" ebXML capability into turnkey systems, appliances, and applications (eg. Quicken)....coupled with a lot of support and direction from the standards bodies, adoption by some of the large players, and a clear demonstration of business/economic benefits (ROI) before the SME's get interested enough to jump on the ebXML band wagon. Instead of hoping...start rolling up your sleeves. <grins> ...Andrzej Chaeron Corporation http://www.chaeron.com ---------------------------------------------------------------- The ebxml-dev list is sponsored by OASIS.
