Govt to Set Up ebXML-RosettaNet Link
By Kim Joon-bae
Tuesday, May 20, 2003

Two next-generation international e-commerce standards, 'ebXML' and
'RosettaNet,' will soon become interoperable, allowing the nation to
take a leading role in linking the two mainstay standards on the global
level. The Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Energy said on May 18 that
it would make concerted efforts with the Korea Institute for Electronic
Commerce, an organization leading ebXML development, and RosettaNet
Korea to develop an adapter used to link the two standards.

The decision came after a meeting organized by RosettaNet Korea and
attended by MOCIE and KIEC, and the project will become a part of the
'RosettaNet-ebXML link plan' proposed by RosettaNet.

Once the adapter is completed, firms in the electronics and electrics
industries using RosettaNet will be able to engage in e-commerce
activities with firms poised to adopt ebXML, which is in a final
development stage before commercial use.

Given the fact that ebXML is a global e-commerce standard and RosettaNet
has established a foothold as an industry standard at home,
interoperability between the two standards will contribute significantly
to boosting the nation's role in link on the global level.

"Since the link between the two standards must be in line with an
international agreement, we will aggressively seek to reflect our
position and link plan at e-commerce standard seminars and conferences
held at home and overseas," said an MOEIC official.

The ministry's decision is expected to give sense of stability to firms
using RosettaNet by enabling interoperability with the fast-spreading
international standard ebXML.

It will also likely serve as a catalyst for adoption of ebXML in the
electronics and electrics industries. The government has been providing
full support for adoption of ebXML even before a commercial launch,
citing its general-purpose use across a full variety of industries.

The policy stance, however, caused a delay in adoption of RosettaNet in
the country while leading multinationals such as Intel and Sony moving
fast to introduce the standard. Facing the delay, in particular,
industry experts raised the concern that it could result in losses of
deals with foreign firms increasingly resorting to RosettaNet.

"Interoperability will not lead to immediate effects since ebXML is
still in a development stage, but the decision carries significance in
that the government has begun to provide support for RosettaNet, which
is fast spreading into the electronics and electrics areas," said Prof.
Kim Sun-ho at Myungji University.
