Lectronic Data Interchange and Interorganizational Systems
I am applying for the PhD Program at the university . and I need a proposal for my research topic: Electronic Data Interchange and Interorganizational Systems.
The growth of interorganizational systems (IOS) in recent years has been impressive. For example, the computer to computer exchange of data between buyers and suppliers using standard format has been increasing sharply due to the Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) technology. However, many research issues arising from these systems are yet to be examined. My research question is:
Can EDI improve information attributes such as accuracy and timeliness and thus lead to higher performance of trading partners?
