Adeptia Business to Business Integration (B2Bi) Suite is an enterprise-class software product that is designed to integrate CUSTOMER and PARTNER DATA with ANY APPLICATION or DATABASE using industry standards such as EDI, EDIFACT, RosettaNet, HIPAA/HL7, ACORD AL3/XML etc. It combines process centric and services (SOA) based approach with application and partner integration. B2B Integration Suite easily and quickly automates data flows and connects internal applications with external partners using industry-specific standards.
B2B Integration Suite is a web-based, graphical, easy to use solution that allows customers to integrate disparate information sources, databases and software applications both within an enterprise and across customers, vendors and business partners. These integration data flows can be implemented within hours and days and they can be setup to run automatically in the background without intervention unless there are any errors or exceptions. Common B2B integration scenarios such as mapping EDI, HL7 or RosettaNet messages to XML or internal databases can be done very quickly and easily.
Adeptia is UNIQUE because it enables automation of not just system-to-system (straight thru) and partner-to-system data flows but also the more common SYSTEM-TO-HUMAN business processes where business users need to interact with running data flows to view information, correct errors and resubmit data if needed. Another unique attribute of Adeptia is that it includes a WEB PORTAL and the design studio is completely web-based and so it is really easy for business analysts to configure functionality in Adeptia and for business users to track partner messages and correct errors. Finally, Adeptia Suite is based on CURRENT TECHNOLOGIES such as Java, Web and XML and it leverages state-of-the-art frameworks such as Process-centric approach and Services-based (SOA) architecture.
