A messaging specification

A “Messaging Specification”

  • Marshall McLuhan*was wrongwhen he said “The Medium is the Message”.

    • XML is an important medium but…

    • Content is King

  • It’s not about XML, it is about

    • System to system communication

    • Orchestrating business processes between companies – “collaboration”

    • Connecting internal and/or external systems

*Understanging Media, Marshall McLuhan, 1964


Ifx is more than an xml spec

IFX is more than an XML Spec

It is a Messaging Specification…

  • an object model represented by an XML Schema

  • a communications protocol

  • well-considered business rules

  • Targeted Financial Solution
