Appendix C. EDI Services

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is a set of standards for structuring information that is to be electronically exchanged between and within businesses, organizations, government entities and other groups.

The EDI standards were designed to be independent of communication and software technologies.

EDI can be transmitted using any methodology agreed to by the sender and recipient.

This includes a variety of technologies such as FTP, SMTP, HTTP, AS1, AS2 and AS3.
