Despite all of the advances in computer communications over the last twenty years, the UK association for Business Accounting Software, BASDA, estimates that 95% of documents keyed into computers actually originated on another computer. Obviously, the industry has a long way to go in enabling computer systems to communicate with each other. In an effort to improve this situation, Microsoft have launched the Biztalk initiative, a world-wide project to define master structures or schemas for interchange of data between computer systems and business processes via the Internet. The idea is that instead of each pair of developers wishing to exchange data between their applications defining a bespoke structure for data interchange from scratch every time, there should be a world repository of data interchange formats for common business processes. Then, if a developer needs to interchange data with another system, they first look on the Biztalk Web Site at www.biztalk.org to see if a structure already exists for this purpose. If so, they will use the existing schema, otherwise, they will create a new one and deposit in the repository themselves. In this way, gradually all computer systems will develop compatible formats for sharing data with each other.
