Compete with the big players in today's E-commerce marketplaceElectronic Data Interchange (EDI) has long been the standard for large business enterprises to communicate in the B2B marketplace. However, EDI is a difficult technology - the cost and support of EDI standards is often too much for a small or medium business enterprise to bear. To compete in the current E-commerce marketplace, many organizations are beginning to take an interest in the interoperability that exists between XML (Extensible Markup Language) and EDI. XML .NET Developers Guide is written for information technology professionals responsible for supporting data management in both small and large organizations. This book appeals to both individuals working with an existing EDI environment, and small to medium businesses looking to increase their market presence by competing with current EDI players using XML/EDI.
