- If a company is using EDI for electronic invoicing and payment of freight bills via the Web, how will another electronic bill/pay system using XML integrate with it? Or can it?
- EDI (electronic data interface) is so expensive for a company to set up, so wouldn't the freedom of XML be a better way to go?
It is possible to convert EDI messages to/from XML quite easily in syntax terms. Certainly using XML notation brings with it a lot of tool and mind-share support. One possibility would be to use XML up and down-stream of the existing EDI system thus ring fencing the complexities of EDI while building on the facilities already in place.
