EDI alive and well

Computerworld reports on the recent UConnect Conference in Anaheim, sponsored by Uniform Code Council (UCC).
Don't believe reports you might hear about the death of electronic data interchange. Not only is EDI alive more than 20 years after its birth, it's also thriving at companies that use it to exchange purchase orders, invoices and other information with trading partners.
The article points out that contrary to popular belief, adoption of EDI is not declining in favor of XML or web services. Actually, "...EDI represents 80% to 90% of the total business-to-business traffic, and the number of EDI transactions is growing 3% to 5% every year."
