WG 7 group

Digital Business


A key task of WG7 is to enhance interoperability by developing technical specifications in support of semantics, digital innovations and associated concepts that enable standardized cross-enterprise solutions. Furthermore, the provision of accessible or open data and related frameworks in the field of e-commerce helps to align business processes and foster global collaboration and interchange.
