EDI is the exchange of electronic business documents between trading partners using a pre-defined formatting standard. Although the standard may be pre-defined, the implementation of it can be vastly different from organization to organization. Different industries use different standards as well as different methods for implementing the same electronic document. 

For years, there has been a stigma surrounding EDI that it is either difficult or expensive to implement and that gains in efficiency are not worth the effort. Most of the time, companies are forced into doing EDI because of a requirement to do business. It seems to most that it is a "necessary evil" that must be dealt with and so most companies choose to enter into doing EDI with this mindset. Many times, their "taste" for EDI gets tainted simply because the implementation of the EDI tools was performed with a "one-size-fits-all" methodology.
