EDI Message Development
EDI message standards are useful to exchange structured data between business partners electronically. Various organizations such as UN, ANSI, DIN or VDA define the EDI message standards. The most widely used format is the UN/EDIFACT message (United Nations rules for Electronic Data Interchange for Administration, Commerce and Transport). There are a number of variations on this format (usually defined by an industry, e.g. EANCOM). These dialects are usually referred to as subsets.
Other important message formats include ANSI.X12 (the American National Standards Institute Accredited Standards Committee X12). This standard is mainly used in North America, ODETTE (European automotive industry standard) and VDA (German automotive industry association format). The TRADACOMS standard is the predecessor of EDIFACT in the United Kingdom. HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) is specifically designed for regulatory compliance in healthcare agencies and for legislative purposes.
Our development team supports you with the following formats for the design and development of EDI message structures in the BIC Mapping Designer from SEEBURGER. Of course, we provide the EDI messages with the appropriate documentation suitable for publication to external trading partners.
In addition, we develop reusable reports for the Jasper Reports component or ad-hoc SQL extracts of SEEBURGER BIS data.
