For businesses that use Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) standards to exchange information with suppliers, partners, and customers, the ability to convert between EDI and other data formats used by heterogeneous internal systems is a significant and ongoing challenge. Because EDI comes in many dialects and is continually evolving, EDI conversion within the enterprise has the potential to consume substantial resources, complicate IT architectures, and impede process agility. An ideal EDI conversion solution should make EDI conversion fast and easy, mesh with other enterprise data conversion needs, and not hinder business application performance and scalability.
