  28. 28. Bridging the Chasm Lack of reference cases – Ally with tech champions – Share deployment cases, e.g. through freebXML.org – Incubate lead ‘pragmatist’ projects Lack of whole product, total solution & implementation expertise – Create open-source ebXML tech components – Develop localized applications – Transfer them to users & vendors Is ebXML a stable B2B e-commerce standard for future? – Educate the community, esp. lead users and consultants – Clearly position ebXML and other techs (e.g. Web Services) Insufficient marketing – Vendors must cooperate to establish the market before it is large enough to compete, e.g. sharing experiences and reference cases – Target-market key IT drivers, e.g. Govt, IT/commerce associations, lead enterprises1st October 2002 2002 ebXML Conference, Seoul, Korea 28

  32. 32. Our Experience… R&D must be very focused and understand its mission – We have been doing XML R&D for almost 3 years R&D must look at the fundamental – XML is bringing in a fundamental paradigm shift – ebXML, Web Services are vehicles only R&D must partner with champions, lead users, international standards bodies… XML + Internet is bringing in disruptive changes The market needs open standards Open-source/free software catalyses early market adoption and jumpstarts vendor product development1st October 2002 2002 ebXML Conference, Seoul, Korea 32
