are unwieldy solutions and respective solution providers
out there trying to justify increase in transaction
costs in the name of fanciful integration platforms
developed by them before 'the bubble' burst.
Some of the elephantine integration solutions are
quite often retarding collaborative and B2B processing
possibilities even for Fortune 50 companies.
What is needed?
The onus is on the businesses, their respective
IT departments and obviously solution vendors to rise
up to the challenge to meet the expectations in a techno-commercially
efficient and effective manner. EdiX does precisely
Where EdiX fits in?
Addressing Various Scenarios:
- Collaborative Business Process Flows need to be
increasingly collaborative to stay competitive.
- Applications Integration
within the Enterprise needs to operate in a collaborative
manner and there is a
need to look beyond ERP and EAI approach.
- Integration & interfacing
of processes and applications with external business
entities also needs to be done
in collaborative and streamlined manner irrespective
of application product vendors, underlying technology
and operating environments.
- Lowering transaction costs
and improving profitability is the objective
of collaborative integration (and
thus objective of all tools, platforms and interface
applications) and not the other way round.
EdiX helps in implementing
application integration for many EAI and B2Bi scenarios.
EdiX ability is further
strengthened by coupling of certain interface applicationware
for specific vertical based scenarios.
Scalability, Platform and Architecture:
- Integration with various common ERPs such as Oracle,
SAP, Peoplesoft for FSI.
- Core integration functions such as such as translation,
secure and encrypted data transport, parsers
and output generators etc.
- Standard formats such as EDIFACT,
SWIFT, XML and also various RosettaNet envelops
and also means of
custom defined proprietary formats as required
by proprietary, vertical specific or simply legacy
- Operational Modes File (batch) and also
direct business object interfaces, STP/Frictionless
- Industry specific scenarios - EdiX
can be provided with interface applicationware
industry requirements e.g. inter-bank requirements,
management interface requirements etc.
for FSI and
web-stores automation, premier customer
workflows, sales and procurement
automation, fulfillment automation for
sales and distribution industries.
- Enhanced optional
functionality such as business object preview,
business object extensions
- Optional auxiliary functionality such
as MIS reporting, reconciliation, exception
Open Systems Platform & J2EE compliance: EdiX
is available on J2EE compliant platform on open systems
on NT and Unix Platforms. Certain EdiX base core components
do not require RDBMS. However when EdiX suite requires
supporting interface applicationware EdiX is available
on oracle and IBM technology components (RDBMS and
Advanced component architecture: This allows EdiX additional scalability and flexibility.
Deployment Options and Profiling: Certain EdiX components
can be selectively deployed with different profiling
options and also topological configurations at different
business partner entities to give a optimum performance,
flexibility in deployment and return on investment.
