The Workshop secretariat has sent out the early draft of the eBIZ Reference Architecture to all Workshops Members for comments before the 28th February.

The 150 pages work document clearly highlights the major new introductions such as the new chapter 4 and the red font/ yellow marked new text. The document is the outcome of the previous months’ works to address the e-Business gaps identified by Members and following the inputs provided.

Over the next 6 weeks the Project Team will further collect inputs and elaborate on the contents to release the final draft. The latter will be open for comments from any stakeholder and it will lead to the final version release due in June.

To enlarge consensus and mobilize a critical mass, several meetings will take place in different European countries until June to present and discuss the Reference Architecture erly draft. These meetings feature project team members, stakeholders, notably ICT solution providers, and fashion companies.
