Techopedia explains Data Interchange Standards Association (DISA)

DISA supports and enhances e-commerce industry standards and supports various levels of service. One of the primary areas in which DISA assists online companies is through specification development. Not only does DISA manage these, it helps businesses to publish their specifications while offering technical guidance. The other area in which it supports the e-commerce field is organizational administration. Here DISA can maintain and support websites and databases and offer other administrative functions such as accounting and financing, marketing, membership recruitment, meeting arrangements, business communications, and other corporate and general administrative tasks.

Electronic data interchange (EDI) is used within the DISA framework through the ASC. EDI occurs when data is exchanged from computer to computer without any human intervention. ASC, along with DISA, helps set B2B e-commerce standards, which are updated and changed by consensus, rather than by a single company or decision-maker.
