Chemistry Industry Data eXchange (CIDX)

CIDX was a trade association and standards body focused on realizing transactional efficiency throughout the global chemical industry supply chain.

At the end of 2008, CIDX transitioned its standards and operations to the Open Application Group, Inc. (OAGi) and the American Chemistry Council’s Chemical Information Technology Center (ChemITC). CIDX then ceased to exist as a corporation.

Under the terms of the agreement, CIDX transfered its Chem eStandards and other related intellectual property to OAGi. OAGi will create a new Chemical Industry Council to provide ongoing support and maintenance for these work products and contribute chemical industry requirements to the development of the OAGIS standard.

The agreement calls for ChemITC to form an eBusiness Program to provide prioritization, direction-setting and field volunteers for OAGi project work.

This book covers both issues. Managers at all levels of all organizations must be aware of both the changes that we are now seeing and ways to deal with issues created by those changes.
