2007: A Marquee Year for ebXML

Authored by David RR Webber

The adoption and use of ebXML has finished 2007 stronger and deeper with significant new product and project wins achieved.

The plans for 2008 already hold out expansion on what 2007 has accomplished and particularly in Asia an ambitious programme with several governments contributing to projects taking advantage of what ebXML V3 offers to implement lower cost extended cross-boundary communications solutions.

Europe too is seeing expanding use through adoption in EU funded projects. Meanwhile the US is broadening use more especially in the government healthcare sector. The adoption by HL7 of the new ebXML V3 messaging will be key in 2008 and especially when combined with SOA techniques and technology needs.

Documenting the Benefits of ebXML Solutions

The ebXML suite of components has made significant strides and is set to provide the most comprehensive and mature solution set yet for eBusiness solutions.

The challenge is to deploy business complete Knowledge Driven Collaboration (KDC), not just raw XML exchanges over a web serviced network.  KDC empowers partners and ensures trust and service at the highest levels.  Without KDC you merely have a fragile collection of XML moving parts that are prone to angle bracket induced technical failure.

Understanding the capabilities and the types of solution that are available with ebXML today is crucial for your organizations ability to garner the most benefit, and to formulate planning to leverage more of ebXML as your e-business communities grow. 

Maturing open source solutions also offer flexible components that can be deployed along with commercial products to provide a complimentary set of business functions.  Some examples include a collaborative marketplace for partners; emergency reporting networks; hazardous goods shipment reporting; e-healthcare service provider network, electricity supply distribution and so on.  Understanding the components that ebXML provides to facilitate these systems is key to being able to take maximum advantage of the specifications.

In order to provide insights into these deployment models there is now a handy reference white paper that introduces both the classic features of established ebXML deployments along with the latest features of ebXML today.

Written by a panel of e-business experts who have designed and built solutions for a range of major industries and government applications this white paper gives you an overview that you can use to jumpstart your own ebXML projects.
