•buyers would not be able to order the right products, from the right suppliers or during the correct time frames without integrated enterprise resource planning systems based on service-oriented architecture (SOA)
•the procurement process would not integrate supply chain partners in real-time and in an economic way without the extensible markup language (XML) protocol.
