EDI Gateway

Securely and rapidly integrate all your trading partners—small and large—with complete end-to-end visibility

While EDI is not going away, enterprise data exchange has evolved beyond just EDI. With the adoption of XML-based standards, more trading partners are using XML and web services to exchange data in real-time.  For smaller partners, document-based data exchange persists and many organizations still use manual processes to integrate Excel spreadsheets, PDFs, or Microsoft Word documents. Industry analysts estimate that most EDI Gateways are running on 15-year-old technology.  These solutions are unable to meet the needs of the modern enterprise.  With EDI Gateway +, you can automate the integration of EDI, XML, and unstructured documents in one comprehensive solution.

Integrate everything and everyone

The efficient integration of EDI and XML documents is an important feature of any EDI gateway.  But the ability to integrate Excel, PDF, or Word documents with the same degree of automation is game-changing for your business. A point-and-click interface creates data transformations for virtually any format, complexity, or size: complex XML, industry formats (EDI X12, EDIFACT, SWIFT, HIPAA, for example), and unstructured documents (Excel, PDF’s and MS Word) without prior conversion.  Finally you can automate data exchanges with all trading partners—small and large— without forcing them to use your format or technology, which usually has limited success.

On-board partners five times faster

Imagine configuration and reuse with no more custom coding. Through a business-friendly user interface, business analysts—not developers—add and configure new partners, dramatically reducing onboarding time and time to information. For larger communities, partners can self-onboard through a partner portal, reducing the cost and complexity of managing these larger partner communities.

Complete visibility

Business operators and, with authorization, your trading partners, have end-to-end visibility to status, processing bottlenecks, and failures. “Always on” monitoring and notifications ensure you know about problems and resolve them before they impact the business. Dashboards measure key performance indicators (KPIs) so you can identify problem areas or trends for performance improvement.

Quality assured data exchange

Detecting bad data early, before it is loaded to your applications or sent to your partners, is key to building strong trading partner relationships and operational efficiency. No matter what type of data, built-in data quality validations and  Informatica Data Quality rules you customize will ensure shared data is complete, accurate, and ready to be consumed.
