Thank you for using the Apparel Search website to learn about Electronic Data Interchange, eXtensible Markup Language and Electronic Commerce.

EDI is described as the interchange of structured data according to agreed message standards between computer systems, by electronic means. Structured data equates to an unambiguous method of presenting the data content of a document, be it an invoice, order or any other document type. The method of ensuring the correct interpretation of the information by the computer system is defined by the standard. Electronic exchange of information in the context of pure EDI effectively means without human intervention.

Electronic Commerce (EC): Transacting business via electronic means.
