Beth Gold-Bernstein Series: Integrating and Optimizing the Enterprise

Sponsored By:

HCL Technologies

Integration with suppliers and partners has traditionally been done using expensive EDI solutions and proprietary VANs (value added networks). Only the largest suppliers and partners could afford to implement EDI. However, studies have shown that electronic transactions are a fraction of the cost to process compared to manual transactions. The Internet, standards, and new B2B solutions reduce the transaction cost and partner on boarding time. Tune into this webinar to learn about how to modernize your legacy integration infrastructure and enable partner and B2B integration.

What you will learn:
  • Challenges in B2B & Partner Integration
  • The role of EDI and EAI
  • Benefits of EDI modernization
  • Hear customer case studies
  • Learn about a migration & modernization framework
