Rechartered OASIS Business Document Exchange TC has been kicked off

The OASIS non-profit consortium recently announced an expanded charter for its Business Document Exchange (BDX) Technical Committee and issued a Call for Participation to all those involved in this market, both public and private sector: agencies, enterprises, solution providers, consultants and researchers. E-payment actors including financial institutions, associations and payment networks are invited take part in defining an open standards framework to support the largest public e-procurement and e-invoicing initiative in the world.

Through participation in BDX, committee members have the opportunity to influence the advancement of BDX as an international standard. As a member of the BDX Committee, you ensure your requirements and use cases are taken into account. You engage with other e-procurement experts, promote demand for compliant products, and form useful alliances for successful implementation and ongoing support.

Furthermore, BDX standards can provide an open, neutral and extensible technical framework. Bringing your use cases and relevant partner relationships into the BDX process and framework can help you to connect with a broader range of partners, faster, and at lower cost.

The links below provide more information on the BDX charter and on the benefits and costs of OASIS membership. (Note: you must be a member of OASIS in order to participate).
