"We’re not advocating that a company change a working system," says [Intel’s Chief E-Strategist Chris] Thomas. "What we are saying is that where you have manual processes that are delaying or incurring errors, the automation makes sense. EDI is too expensive to throw at a lot of these problems. But XML and proprietary standards and schema are not, especially as new products like BizTalk server and the like become available."

About this blog

I'm CEO of an online/mobile trade publishing firm in the marketing and defense verticals. We strive to make news and data digestible and useful in an environment that is noisier by the day.

This personal blog mixes my thoughts and interests on politics, business, publishing, software, and more. Over the years I have posted items that turned out spectacularly wrong, and a few posts that better stood the test of time.
