Interoperability is a topic of considerable interest for business entities, as the exchange and use of data is important to their success and sustainability.

Electronic Business Interoperability: Concepts, Opportunities and Challenges analyzes obstacles, provides critical assessment of existing approaches, and reviews recent research efforts to overcome interoperability problems in electronic business. It serves as a source of knowledge for researchers, educators, students, and industry practitioners to share and exchange their most current research findings, ideas, practices, challenges, and opportunities concerning electronic business interoperability.


The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Business artifacts for e-business interoperability
  • Data mappings between heterogeneous XML schemas
  • E-commerce business processes
  • ebXML-based electronic business interoperability framework
  • Interoperability approaches and tools

Reviews and Testimonials

Altogether, this book gives an interesting overview of recent findings in many relevant areas of research, development, and standardization in electronic business interoperability. Considering the range and depth of the chapters, written by experts, yet highly readable to non-experts, this book is an important and much needed contribution for a wider audience ranging from researchers and those in undergraduate education to professionals who are involved in design and development of interoperable e-business applications and solutions. Moreover, it can inspire the whole e-business community to come up with entirely new ideas in this fascinating research and development area.
