    Some definitions are provided here to support the Clickable Business Models.  There are hyperlinks to other non-EIDX/CompTIA web sites.   Changes/improvements are made to this part of the web site only as needed to support current EIDX models and guidelines.  For this reason, some links to external web sites may not work if that web site has made changes.

    You may go ahead and submit suggested additions or changes.  Please also let us know about errors or  broken links.  Just be aware that we may not acknowledge your message right away and may not be able to do the update/correction immediately.  We reserve the right to reject submissions.  Thanks!


    Most of the terms in this area of the web site are synthesized from numerous glossaries, dictionaries, articles, solution-provider definitions, and other sources.  The following list, therefore, is not complete, as half the content on the internet would be needed, and these resources do not necessarily contain definitions that exactly match the synthesized EIDX definitions.  It is important to note, too, that definitions at some of these sites may seem to contradict the EIDX definitions; this is because there is not (yet) universal consistency in the usage of terms in the eBusiness world.  What are synonyms to one person are distinctly different terms to another, and vice-versa.  The point is:  When discussing concepts with a trading partner or solution provider or whoever, ask them what they mean whey they use a term.
