Successful EDI initiatives require careful thought of a number of factors beginning simply with trading partner compliance and data integration.
However, EDI often extends into process automation and adherence to internal business process needs, which requires a high degree of visibility and control over the automated processes.
Initial EDI projects often focus just on data integration, failing to take into consideration the higher-level benefits of process automation, collaboration and intelligence during implementation
So according to recent studies, organizations are then attempting to achieve the higher-level benefits by customizing solutions in and around their ERP to handle EDI project automation, visibility and control. After all, the role of an ERP is to automate workflows and information access for the entire organization, right?
Sure, but best in class companies are now realizing that the objective should be to achieve integrated operations, and that requires leveraging data in its native EDI form that compliments ERP information.
