Abstract: The adoption of public applicative standards could improve eBusiness adoption, especially among networks of SMEs. Nevertheless the adoption of such specifications encounters obstacles and hampering factors. This paper analyses some of such factors and the experience of promoting the adoption of standards for eBusiness in sectors dominated by SMEs presence and outlines some of the actions that can be pursued through the adoption of use profiles Automatized management of Use Profiles appears as a way to overcome some of the major problems arising from the nature of the standardised specifications and to reduce the efforts necessary to achieve true interoperability between systems.
