In recent years business-to-business (B2B) ecommerce<br> has been subject to major rethinking. A paradigm<br> shift from document centric file-based interchange of business<br> information to process-centric and service-based information<br> exchange can be observed. On a business level, a lot of work<br> has been done to capture business models and collaborative<br> business processes of an enterprise. On a technical level, the<br> focus in software development is moving towards service-oriented<br> architectures (SOA). These transitions on both levels promise<br> a market entry at lower costs and an easier adjustment to<br> changing market conditions. Hence, an overwhelming quantity<br> of specifications and approaches emerged in the past targeting<br> the area of B2B - these are partly competing and overlapping.<br> In this paper, we provide a survey of the most promising ones at<br> both levels and classify them using the Open-edi reference model<br> standardized by ISO. Furthermore, we discuss how individual<br> specifications on different levels fit together - starting from<br> business models via business processes to artifacts ready for<br> deployment.
