  • Matured standard as it addresses every complex use case in various Business domains.
  • Wider adoption and increased customer base.
  • Matured, well-defined, EDDIINT standard such as AS1, AS2 for data exchange.

MindTelligent Oracle EDI Practice

Oracle B2B supports both the EDIFACT and X12 flavor of EDI.

Oracle Integration B2B has teamed up with EDIFECSTM to provide their robust translation and validation engine as an integral part of Oracle Integration B2B. This solution provides:

MindTelligent MuleSoft Practice : API-led solution for EDI and B2B integration

Anypoint B2B completely modernizes B2B by extending Anypoint Platform’s™ API-led connectivity approach to B2B and EDI use cases. Companies can now build reusable services across multiple B2B trading partners and B2B processes on a single connectivity platform. This enables increased agility and decreased time for partner onboarding, while reducing cost and risk.

API-led connectivity proposes a three-layered architecture withthe following components:

1 System Layer: Underlying all IT architectures are coresystems of record (e.g. ERP system, key customer andbilling systems, proprietary databases, etc.).

2 Process Layer: The business processes that interactwith and shape this data should be encapsulatedindependently of the source systems from which thatdata originates, as well as from the channels throughwhich that data is delivered.

3 Experience Layer: Data is now consumed across a broadset of channels, each of which want access to the samedata, but in a variety of different formats.
