Abstract:


In recent years business-to-business (B2B) ecommerce
has been subject to major rethinking. A paradigm
shift from document centric file-based interchange of business
information to process-centric and service-based information
exchange can be observed. On a business level, a lot of work
has been done to capture business models and collaborative
business processes of an enterprise. On a technical level, the
focus in software development is moving towards service-oriented
architectures (SOA). These transitions on both levels promise
a market entry at lower costs and an easier adjustment to
changing market conditions. Hence, an overwhelming quantity
of specifications and approaches emerged in the past targeting
the area of B2B - these are partly competing and overlapping.
In this paper, we provide a survey of the most promising ones at
both levels and classify them using the Open-edi reference model
standardized by ISO. Furthermore, we discuss how individual
specifications on different levels fit together - starting from
business models via business processes to artifacts ready for
deployment.
