All About EDI

What is EDI?

Describes pure EDI the way it was designed and intended in the 1970s. This is NOT the normal answer to this question. I have an unpublished blog I called, “There is no EDI” to point out the fact that no company is doing EDI today as it was intended.

Who is EDI for?

Also, an unusual answer. It’s not Who anymore, it’s what. The age of integration is here to integrate everything with standards. Watch to Telephone pole and driverless car and your doorbell. NO proprietary methods.

How is EDI done today?

Wrong. There are no companies today doing EDI as was intended by its designers half century ago. Which is why large corporations today think EDI is broken and are trying to replace it with anything; json, APIs, portals.

How should EDI be done?

The Right Way. Pure EDI would be unbelievably simple. EDI integration is translating between this data and that format and sending it to this partner. That’s it.

How does IEB3 do EDI?

Peter J Puccio III – Bio

I share my career in EDI and 30+ year history of outsourcing, consulting, and implementing EDI for the largest companies in the world. This helps the reader to disregard what everyone is saying, “this is not possible.” I would not promote what cannot be done. This works.
