Electronic Data Interchange

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) standard data formats were developed in the early 1970s to support business-to-business e-commerce. Refined over the years, and with specific versions for particular industries, EDI is still in use today, for example, as messages attached to AS2 protocol communications, which can use Internet connections and maintain security.
