A corporate strategy provides the key thrusts the business must select in order to profitably provide a product or service that customers will want to buy. Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) can be described as a way to automate the information transfers that must be undertaken to complete the tasks identified in value chain analysis. EDI applications therefore should be linked to corporate strategy. In this paper we describe the relationship between a firm’s core strategy and EDI efforts.
