Web/EDI proves to be a good idea for large companies seeking ways of having their small customers send their data in a standardized format without forcing them to invest large amounts of money (Weitzel et al. 1999b). But in order to procure the exchange of information throughout the entire supply chain, the solutions need to be more flexible. While Web/EDI is a means of integrating small partners into existing sub-networks, the emergence of new electronic marketplaces required the transformation of "supply chains" into "supply Webs".

[...] As opposed to traditional EDI, where communication flows over private Value Added Networks, the Internet is a public network and there are serious security issues to be considered. Although more than 50% of the Fortune1000 enterprises in both, Germany and the U.S. plan to use Web/EDI in the future, it is so far only implemented by 7.4% in Germany and 16.9% in the U.S (Westarp et al.1999).

Questionable security is, by far, the greatest stumbling block to widespread use of the Internet for EDI. Given these considerations, compared to traditional EDI a state of the art Web/EDI solution must meet the following five requirements: (a) lower setup costs and time, (b) reduced operating costs, (c) security, (d) easy integration in in-house systems especially of the smaller partners (clients), and (e) flexibility and extensibility (Weitzel and Buxmann 1999).

In this context, form-based EDI proves to be a good idea for large companies seeking ways of having their small customers send their data in a standardized format without forcing them to invest large amounts of money [8]. But in order to procure the exchange of information throughout the entire supply chain, the solutions need to be more flexible. While form-based EDI is a means of integrating small partners into existing sub-networks, the emergence of new electronic marketplaces, or as CommerceOne calls it the transformation of “supply chains” into “supply Webs” [9], requires a greater flexibility, e. g. enabling an easy alteration of transaction content and partners as well as fast and easy integration into in-house systems. Additionally, there are serious security issues to be considered. Although more than 50% of the Fortune1000 enterprises in both, Germany and the U.S. plan to use WebEDI in the future, it is so far only implemented by 7.4% in Germany and 16.9% in the U.S [10]. Questionable security is, by far, the greatest stumbling block to widespread use of the Internet for EDI.

Given these considerations, compared to traditional EDI a state of the art WebEDI solution must meet the following five requirements:

Þ lower setup costs and time,

Þ reduced operating costs,

Þ security,

Þ easy integration in in-house systems especially of the smaller partners (‘clients’) and

Þ flexibility and extensibility.
