Subject: RE: Comments on Vienna spec 0.56

I apologize that I was not more explicit in my comments. My point is that we
are planning to use product catalog exchange in the demo (p. 18, steps 1 -
3), however this is not reflected in the Figures 2 and 3.  Instead, Figures
2 and 3 show an order entry scenario.  My recommendation is to updates
Figures 2 and 3 to reflect what will be actually presented in Vienna.

Hi Dimitri,
I still need to talk to Sig about filling in the BP details but to your
comments :

Trust me, in a real business world, figures 2 & 3 go way beyond order entry.
The pictures are meant to graphically show to essential business elements of
a real business where promising a customer, buying and selling inventory
with customer and vendor payments included and direct to customer product
delivery are all going on.

Now product catalog exchanges itself is a very interesting subject
(especially for very large catalogs with 300,000 plus products) where XML
technology, especially for digital content, has many descriptive advantages
over traditional EDI business processes (but maybe isn't as size efficient
as old EDI). 
What I was wondering was if you could sketch out the business process case
within which the activity of product catalog exchange might be used, showing
esssentially why ebXML is better than say EDI ?
