Contemporary development and the range of application as well as effectiveness of telematics solutions depend, to a larger extent, on creative implementations of the latest solutions and concepts related to the exchange of data. This article raises an issue of information interchange in business in view of changes generating on one hand new needs and on the other new possibilities. Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is still a basic concept in this area, based on EDIFACT (technical aspect in ISO 9735 norm) and created in 80s of 20th century, it satisfies contemporary needs to a lesser extent. Nowadays, there is a trend towards devising modern communication solutions which can be easily modified and operate in the “cloud” in its broad sense. These modern concepts constitute a basis for a wider usage of telematics solutions in the economy and everyday life. This article makes an attempt to identify and holistically grasp determinants of such solutions. This elaboration aims to compare a traditional and a new approach to data interchange as well as to show trends and new development directions affecting the development of telematics solutions.
