Comparisons between EDI and ebXML Architecture in Business to Business (B2B) Electronic Commerce (EC) / Fitriasrah Razali

Razali, Fitriasrah (2007) Comparisons between EDI and ebXML Architecture in Business to Business (B2B) Electronic Commerce (EC) / Fitriasrah Razali. [Student Project] (Submitted)


For over 25 years, organizations have used Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) systems
to handle business transaction. However, EDI is neither cheap nor simple and is based
on private network such as Value Added Network (VAN) .It forces organization into long
term, tightly coupled trading relationship with their business partners. EDI also does not
stand for free exchanging infomnation and transaction. As e-Business frameworks have
evolved from traditional EDI technology to Internet using EDI, it is still not mature
enough to allow their broad successful commercial application. All these approaches
lack substantial reflection and integration of business semantic as the basic of any
electronic commerce partnership. ebXML is a world-wide initiative that tries to solve
drawbacks of existing standard and approaches and has the potential to successfully
delivery solutions to these problems. Therefore, in this paper, researcher is trying to
compare both applications respectively. The comparison will be based on criterion with
regard to business architecture since this work focus on B2B application. Researcher
gathers information by having an inten/iew with an expert in this field instead make
critical analysis based on previous journals and other studies. As a result, EDI is
obviously stay back behind the ebXML as it can also fulfill the functionality of EDI and
developed based on the investment in and experiences of EDI.
