IBM Integration Services and EDI
EDI means Electronic Data Interchange and is a concept more than a standalone technology or format. The concept comprises a large number of formats, communication protocols, and business rules.
75% of all electronic B2B exchanges are handled by EDI; however, a large number of transactions and processes are still performed manually and might therefore be inefficient and error-prone. The degree of maturity differs from industry to industry, and the retail trade (and its partners) and logistics chains have achieved great advantages for many years and are still expanding the scope of use.
As EDI becomes more widespread, its usability is expanded with the advent of new solutions, business needs and forms of organizations, trading networks and supply chains.
Projects cover areas such as classic order/invoice management, ERP integration, supply chain and business process optimization, integration of mobile solutions and cloud applications with back-end applications.
