Many people take it for granted that it's simple and fast to transfer data from one computer system to another. Thanks to EDI, it is. With the click of a button, you can share a spreadsheet with your colleague down the hall or across the globe. Baby Boomers remember the bad old days, while younger generations assume things have always been this easy.

This guide will cover how EDI technologies have evolved, and how legacy systems pose data challenges. It also explores why firms have modernized data integration strategies, and what benefits they've received from embracing new data integration methodologies.

This is my last blog in the series Key Components to B2B Integration (see below for links to previous posts in the series).  Below is the graphic that I have used to represent the different components of B2B integration.  The next topic is investigate. 

Where Can I Find EDI Training?

One of the most popular inquiries we receive through our website and from our clients is regarding EDI training. One of the questions we are hearing quite a bit as clients are planning to equip their teams with knowledge and expertise to perform well this year is: “What can you tell me about your EDI and Data Integration Training and how it would benefit my team?”  So, we thought we would answer some of those questions that you may have as well.

When speaking with clients, one of the main topics that they are constantly concerned about is the performance of their B2B EDI/MFT environments and if they are operating at optimal levels of processing capability and efficiency.  They are concerned that their environments are implemented properly to not only support their current volumes and support their current requirements but they want to make sure that they are capable of supporting future growth and new requirements. This ensures that they are maximizing the investment that they have made in their B2B EDI/MFT environments. 

Having been in the recruiting field since 2006, I have found this time of the year to be one of the best to find great talent. Generally speaking, people tend to be more available in January compared to other months.  Fiscal years usually end 12/31 and the new budget year is about to start.  This matters because projects for the year usually end around Thanksgiving and hiring really picks up the first full week of January.  New projects that are kicking off or having more money in your budget for the new fiscal year means you can add to your staff to make sure you hit your deadlines.
