Prepared exclusively for AASA by GCommerce Inc. at the request of the AASA Technology Council (ATC), “Advancing EDI” describes Software-as-a-Service EDI that:

  • Creates a one-to-many electronic mapping relationship that eliminates the need to re-create each EDI relationship with each trading partner;
  • Allows trading partners with different business systems to talk to each other by translating data “in the cloud” and putting it in a format that each party can easily access and use; and
  • Streamlines and automates non-stock and special orders by creating a central repository for suppliers’ inventory availability that is easily accessible via a Web portal or directly through the distributor’s business system.

The end result is an EDI solution that is easier to implement and maintain, puts more trading partners on the same page and represents a step forward in streamlining the entire supply channel.

Three years ago, I co-authored my book The New Age of Innovation with the late professor C.K. Prahalad. We argued then that the structure of business models was morphing, and businesses across industries were moving away from products and services to more personalization of unique experiences co-created with customers. We claimed that to orchestrate such unique experiences, firms must connect to a global resource network of suppliers and individuals. I find this trend in business models more pronounced now with the expansion of online cloud-based platforms from the likes of Apple, Google, Amazon, Facebook, and Microsoft. These platforms enable businesses to build ecosystems to connect with their customer communities, employees, suppliers, and partners. There is a new level of transparency to market opinions on products and services. Apple, Groupon, and Amazon are examples of such business ecosystems that connect millions of customers to thousands of content creators and other partners. This is not limited to technology firms. Ecosystem-based business models are emerging across industries.
