This flow of information is transformative, driving business networks to greater power and efficiency, and offering an important source of competitive advantage.
Key standards that have already contributed broadly to the growth and capabilities of business networks include technical network standards and standards for business content. Business content standards define the format of data that companies transmit over networks. However, business content standards have run into limitations because they do not sufficiently address the need for semantic interoperability.
Emerging standards for semantic interoperability will introduce new efficiencies, cutting the costs of integrating systems across networks.
This white paper offers a deeper understanding of the critical role that standards play in the transformative digitization of business networks.
This white paper is a "drill down" on the issue of semantic interoperability, which is covered in less detail in the first white paper, The Role of Standards in Business Network Transformation. It analyzes how semantic interoperability impacts the costs of integrating computer systems and optimizing business networks.
