Companies looking to migrate to new internet-based technology and grow their trading partner communities and supported documents are forced to support or replace existing EDI legacy systems. These legacy systems tend to be point-topoint, standalone systems focused solely on EDI document exchange with little or no integration to other enterprise applications. There is also a lack of robust B2B and trading partner management support. Maintaining legacy EDI systems limits the speed at which companies can migrate to real-time, collaborative business process automation and enterprise-wide integration.

Through webMethods EDIs robust standards support and ability to leverage and extend existing EDI (or Flat File) messaging infrastructure, companies can now successfully migrate to a single platform for integration. With a single platform and the ability to also link related EDI documents, companies can now create, manage and monitor extended datacentric business process improvements. webMethods EDI offers reliability that supports large communities with multiple document types and high transaction volumes. webMethods EDI provides the complete enterprise-class EDI integration solution that easily expands and evolves to support the changing integration needs of the enterprise and growing trading community.
