Subject: RE: ebXML Supporters

they could say they are seriously reviewing as a transport for the
industry.. however... how do we find some one to talk to about that?  that
would be a good press release and not bind aiag, if ebxml screws up.... rik

After seeing what has been happening with the Technical Architecture
documentation, I would be very uncomfortable encouraging  AIAG to publicly
that they were migrating  to the ebXML Transport Specification until a final
approval was completed.  As you know Martha Warfelt is actively
participating in
the work and I understand that during the Tokyo meeting she will be joined
Eric Arnold.  Ultimately, I would defer to their expertise and
regarding what AIAG's position should be with regard to the auto industries
of transport formats.

thank you. that was good info... yes i am aware more of the gci stuff and
you the other. have they done any press releases saying they are going to
use our transport standards like gci did? those things add credibility to
ebxml. would aiag be willing to replace e5 with ebxml transport? just some
thoughts -- it is one thing to advertise internally and to advertise
externally.... the way gci did. ... keep up the good work. rik

FYI -  Two weeks ago, the AIAG had their annual conference with over 2,500
attendee's.  I am aware  of 5 presentations that were made that voiced
support for ebXML, including one made by Dr. Bob Sutor, PhD..  There have
been numerous articles in their magazine - Actionline.  Finally, AIAG is
sponsoring 4 people to participate in the upcoming ebXML meeting in Tokyo.
Quite frankly, the AIAG would most likely be willing  to market/publicize
if there were more information available.   It appears that you are more
of the GCI activities, while I am more aware of AIAG.  Finally the AIAG is
an excellent forum for us to assist our member company to also become aware
support the work.  Thus, the reason that has always been more than 4 people
participating in ebXML from the auto industry.

Currently we are also working with our international automotive colleagues,
ODETTE and JAMA/JAPIA to also increase their awareness, involvement and

the support i am talking about is marketing/ publicity.... a key component
of this. i don't think aiag, ibm, and others have come out in the press and
talked about how they support and use our efforts. gci has done it more than
once... can you get the aiag to make those sort of statements?... cause that
is going to be very important to the success of this effort. i did not mean
to imply that other organizations are not participating, because i know aiag
funds marykay for this and that is great... so i apologize if i gave the
wrong impression... to anyone...  best regards, rik

Occasionally I have had heard passing comments that  concern me.  But rather
than react to them, I would like to investigate, understand and discuss the
matter.   I am particularly uncomfortable with  a statement that GCI is the
supporter of ebXML.  Certainly, many business and industry groups are
participating in this initiative - so to say that one is 'best' certainly
be based on some  metric. Criterion for evaluation might include, number of
participants involved and leading Project Teams/Work Groups, ebXML meeting
sponsorship, public endorsement statements, etc.   Certainly,  I can provide
details for the automotive industry on that criteria  but as ebXML is about
individual participation, I am not as aware of other industries collective

 Industry and business support  is critical to success of this effort.
over 50 different organizations are developing XML templates and strategies
adopting some form of XML information exchange. Those of us who have been
the EDI path, understand the need for commonization and the benefits
with a single solution.  Thus, it is important that everyone's involvement
highlighted and we pursue strategies that do not cause unnecessary

Please either e-mail or call, I am most interested in better understanding
point of view.
