EDI has traditionally used unique segment identifiers like tokens to separate and identify data items within messages. So replacing those same segments with web tokens allows XML to express EDI and carry EDI via Web delivery methods. This moves EDI from the arcane, obtuse and static into the dynamic mainstream of computing. Webber (1998a: 41) predicts that XML will move EDI from the inadequate 10,000 companies using traditional EDI in the US to millions of desktops and companies instead.

XML/EDI allows each trading partner to quickly synchronize their systems by exchanging not just EDI data, but also process control templates as well. Thus not only this data exchanged but also the enabling underlying process information. Additionally the process control templates are supported by the use of software agents (typically Java and ActiveX components) and Internet based global Reference repositories that allow the required process to be both directed and centrally coordinated. This means that large companies can provide a foundation that their smaller trading partners can easily download and re-use or simply adapt for their local needs. Extended rule based businesses are now possible going beyond traditional process flow forms, and including dynamic and ad-hoc systems that adapt. This is the model needed to create full electronic enterprises where documents and business information flows and is exchanged easily. Other business models are also enabled. The use of HTML on the web has already allowed product catalogues to be integrated into the sales order process. Better [yet with XML markup creating objects and meta-data new uses for catalogues, that allow customers to request information based on criteria and rules can be setup.

Webber, D. 1998a, “Introducing XML/EDI Frameworks”, Electronic Markets, vol. 8, no.1, pp38-41.

XML/EDI solves this impasse by allowing each trading partner to quickly synchronize their systems by exchanging not just EDI data, but also process control templates as well. Thus not only is data exchanged but also the enabling underlying processing information.

Additionally the process control templates are supported by the use of software agents (typically Java and ActiveX components) and internet based Global Reference Repositories that allow the required processes to be both directed and centrally coordinated (figure 1). This means that large companies can provide a foundation that their smaller trading partners can easily download and re-use, or simply adapt for their local needs.

Extended rule based business processes are also now possible, going beyond traditional process flow forms, and including dynamic ad hoc systems that adapt. This is the model needed to create full Electronic Enterprises where documents and business information flows and is exchanged easily.

Other business models are also enabled. The use of HTML on the Web has already allowed product catalogues to be integrated into the sales order process. Better yet with XML markup creating objects and meta-data new uses for catalogues, that allow customers to request information based on criteria and rules can be setup. Also XML documents include Web style content such as graphics and multimedia, not just bare text (figure 2).

EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) has traditionally used unique segment identifiers like tokens to separate and identify data items within messages. So replacing those same segments with Web tokens allows XML to express EDI and carry EDI via Web delivery methods. This moves EDI from the arcane, obtuse and static into the dynamic mainstream of computing. From the pitifully inadequate 10,000 companies using current EDI in the US, to millions of desktops and companies instead.
