ebXML Framework for e-Business and Supply Chain Management ebXML Overview ebXML Activities in Asia Region ebXML Projects in Thailand Dr. Somnuk Keretho (firstname.lastname@example.org) Director, E-Commerce Resource Center (ECRC/NECTEC) Delegate, APEC E-Commerce Steering Group/e-APEC Task Force Delegate, ebXML Asia Committee APEC Workshop on e-Business and Supply Chain Management August 28-30, 2002 - Bangkok
Contributing to the productivity of the present-day economy through the rapid information exchange among major companies
Lacking the flexibility and cannot follow the rapid business change of the new economy easily
Requiring the intricate agreements and testing on EDI between the parties by the person in charge, before starting the business.
Being difficult to expand EDI world for SME’s because of the expensive cost and the special EDI skills.
Easier to implement and to access the electronic data when you just have a PC and a browser software.
Requiring the human operation always and inviting errors sometimes, because the web doesn’t provide the automation of the EDI data handling.
Being difficult to handle the rapid and frequent EDI messages through client/server based system depending on the human handling.
95% of Fortune 1000 are using EDI But Only 2% of other SME’s are using EDI XML/EDI ebXML Standardization There is a solution. Acknowledgement to Hisanao Sugamata/ECOM
What is Self-Describing? Traditional EDI v.s. XML Formats EDI Purchase Order Sample XML Purchase Order Sample These are not self-describing data!
XML used in e-Business 1998 1999 2000 2001 2002 Awareness Proliferation Products Implementation XML Diffusion Chaos to Tower of Babel ebXML Initiative Standardization ebXML Version 1.0 Released May, 2001 Digital Economy Realization by Standardized IT Infrastructure
Link traditional data exchanges (EDI or new XML) to business applications
Lower costs to configure new e-Business relationships
Create “Smart” Business Processes
Provide a reusable set of core information components
Lower cost server and client based solutions
Protect investments in existing systems
XML is not enough
XML is a markup language
XML does not solve business problems
XML schemas do not provide any semantics of business processes
XML by itself is not the magic bullet.
What we really need is a dynamic cross walk mechanism for XML-based vocabularies.
Goal: To provide an open XML-based infrastructure enabling the global use of electronic business information in an interoperable, secure and consistent manner by all parties
Joint initiative of UN/CEFACT and OASIS
