Software NEW!
Welcome to the E-Commerce Integration Meta-Framework Project information Center at GetOpt.
The E-Commerce Integration Meta-Framework project (ECIMF), acting under auspices of CEN/ISSS Workshop for Electronic Commerce, is an international effort to provide a standardized methodology and specification for designing and implementing integration bridges between currently incompatible systems. The scope of the project includes both interoperability between different e-commerce standards, as well as integration of internal legacy systems with external e-commerce interfaces required by business partners.

The project members include representatives from research, industry and consumer organizations.

NEW! The project has been completed as of February 2003. Please visit the documents section to download final deliverables.
Or, you can jump directly to read just the summary and conclusions, and only then read the full background documentation.

If you are visiting this site for the first time, we recommend starting from the short Project Overview information.
