Adeptia provides a unified platform that support all the protocols, data formats, standard data dictionaries, and it contains a robus b2b gateway architecture , efficient data transformation and process engine to convert and route data to any target application.
Adeptia accepts most recognized file formats such as EDI, XLS, XLSX, XML, HIPAA, HL7, Flat Files, and JSON formats. It includes a library of industry-standard formats such as EDI, EDIFACT, ODETTE, MISMO, and ACORD etc. Within each industry-standard, Adeptia provides all the different versions that have been released for the particular standard.
Users can also make customizations to the standards and make copies of those modified standards. This is needed in case, for example, when a customer is using a 5010 EDI 850 but has added custom segments or fields. The data formats can change over time as customer may send an XML file instead of a standard EDI file. Thus providing the business users an easy setup screen, where they can easily map the incoming data to a pre-defined output format, is important.
A business-centric user setup interface allows less dependence on IT and the business team becomes self-reliant in handling all the data variations that can occur as part of the data exchange with the trading partner. This reduces information technology costs and increases their productivity by having IT focus on governance role instead of the operational role.
Another key point is that for non-EDI, the business team can identify specific column as Partner ID or Order ID that can be tracked and shown as part of the B2B transaction logs. Key takeaway for non-EDI transaction processing is to have the transaction logs show similar process history similar to EDI logs where the transactions can be searched easily with user-defined fields such as Order ID, Transaction ID, Customer Number or Partner ID.
