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
- Applications Integration within the
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.
- Integration with various common ERPs such
as Oracle, SAP, Peoplesoft for FSI.
integration functions such as such as translation,
secure and encrypted data transport,
and output generators etc.
- Standard formats
such as EDIFACT, SWIFT, XML and also various
RosettaNet envelops and also
of addressing custom defined proprietary formats
as required by proprietary, vertical specific or
- Operational Modes
File (batch) and also direct business object
- Industry specific scenarios
- EdiX can be provided with interface applicationware
industry requirements e.g. inter-bank requirements,
cash management interface requirements etc. for
FSI and web-stores automation, premier customer
workflows, sales and procurement automation,
fulfillment automation for sales and distribution
- Enhanced optional functionality
such as business object preview, business object
- Optional auxiliary functionality such
as MIS reporting, reconciliation, exception reporting,
generations, billing etc.
Scalability, Platform and Architecture:
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.
