But in the mean time until your work i done we have gci, which used in many ways the approaches ebxml is advocating.... that gives us something ebxml'ly in the payload for tokyo.. which i think is imporant.... rik -----Original Message----- From: mblantz@LTVSteel.com [mailto:mblantz@LTVSteel.com] Sent: Wednesday, September 27, 2000 6:54 AM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: I think we should use the gci proposal for the poc effort intokyo.... why? Rik, I also think that GCI has done an amazing piece of work, especially considering the very short time frame in which they achieved it. I hesitate to add any kind of negative comment. However, as you could tell from the presentations that Lisa and I have given, we are working on more horizontal results rather than vertical industry ones. Even at AIAG we try to divorce ourselves from what will just serve automotive and concentrate on 'generic' business practices. We will continue this effort at X12 and will expand it to other industry silos. Including retail, of course, since we have so many business processes in common and since they are already working on this same effort as a CC Domain Group.

Five reasons: - They followed the spirit of our processes to accomplish their goals - They have been a better partner, as an organization, from visibility and public support than any other so far - their effort is CLEARLY not USA centric, is moving forward at a rapid pace - their proposal is the core set of messages, volume, used in their business sector - we should be able to demonstrate a solution to a clearly real world problem, get good press, make gci and ebxml look good. i am concerned that the decision on what proposal to use has not been made yet... i know coordinating with such a big group of vendors is very hard and time consuming, and i don't fault the poc team for my concern. i think that the stc should give pos some support in making this decision. this may in many ways be the key decision and win in the tokyo meeting for all of ebxml teams and will have great impact on ebxml's acceptance. i vote, today, now, this second, as a stc member to prototype the gci proposal in tokyo. do i hear any contra arguments to my points? Best regards, rik ps: quite frankly i could write some great articles on this and why it is so pivotal to world wide ec...
