Student thesis: Master typesMaster in Computer science

Abstract

In a few words, EDI is the interchange of standard formatted data between the independent computer application systems or databases of trading partners with minimal manual intervention. The introduction of this kind of inter-enterprises project goes along with several problems such as costs/benefits analysis, choice of EDI and communication standards, choice of the documents supported by EDI, choice of the translation (from internal data to EDI message) software, choice of the hardware platform, choice of the partners and, finally, choice of the protection means. The aim of the Roadmap is to structure these problems and propose some solutions in the form of an implementation guide. The pertinence of the proposed solutions was verified against some case studies.
