  2. Agenda The Problem The “Correct on Capture” Concept The Proposal About CommerceNet

  3. The Problem • Structured content is key to eCommerce, yet all participants still struggle to manage it • Product content is a particularly difficult problem for small to medium suppliers to manage • Without greater supplier adoption of small and medium suppliers, the ROI on eProcurement and eSourcing initiatives will not be realized • More Disturbing Facts: • Only 12% of trading partners present products online • Only 33% of their products are offered online • Only 20% of products are represented by accurate, trans-actable content • - AMR Research “Estimates are 80-105 days and $120k-$200k to integrate one supplier.” ”Product content costs the ‘supply chain’ $60 to $80 per SKU to create, manage, and use.” AMR Research - AT Kearney

  4. What’s Needed? • Simple, low cost “correct on capture” tools for SMEs • Open source template forms for all product categories • Tools for suppliers to easily customize and extend forms • Tools to import existing supplier data into templates • Output is tab delimited files and XML, “open” output • A registry of product templates and forms • Education and support on the “correct on capture” of content process

  6. “Correct On Capture” Concept • Excel template based • Supplier download forms for product categories • Templates have predefined columns for product attributes • Columns have predetermined values in pull-down menus • Suppliers can extend pull-down menus • Suppliers can extend form column headings • Supplier can import existing data into template • Template data can be converted to tab delimited or XML files

  7. Forms Registry Prototype 1) Supplier browsers UNSPSC taxonomy hierarchy 2) Supplier finds category and Subcategory for product 3) Supplier clicks “download” button, not shown, to download form

  8. Template Prototype Predefined column headings from form Drop down menu items limiting selection

  20. Business Service Network Project Tenets • Business Model - A BSN project will provide significant ROI for all participants and create one or more new "business services" which can be added to a shared "business services" grid. The projects will also give participants insight into how to market and sell a subscription based "business service." • Participation - The effort at hand requires collective action and is primarily an industry-focused initiative. The project is truly open (i.e.: No single vendor or channel master or gatekeeper) and open to multi-participants. • Funding - CommerceNet will provide project seed funding, but expects other participants to help sponsor the project. CommerceNet may also invest in potential commercial opportunities created by the project. • Technology - The projects can validate emerging Web Services approaches, standards, and technologies. The pilots will also contribute to some aspect of the eCo II architecture and consist of a mix of mature and unproven technologies.
