This paper analyses trends in EDI messaging in Denmark. Between 1995 and 1999, there has been a sharp increase in the number of companies capable of sending and receiving EDI messages as well as an increase in the number of EDI messages trans- mitted. The major part of the increase is attributed to the health sector. Most of the companies analysed within this paper only apply browser-EDI in business-to-business trade to a limited extent. This analysis highlights the potential for expanding the EDI traffic by its integration with ERP systems within Danish companies (ORACLE, SAP/R3, Concorde and Navision) and also indicates the large potential for EDI growth and application within the public sector. It is believed that this data highlights and represents significant trends in EDI applications solutions within the Danish marketplace both now and in the future.
