Creating an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) requires a systematic approach.

Here’s a 10-step process for successfully implementing your EDI:

  1. Develop the organizational structure: Make sure you have the right skills. Set up EDI teams and coordinators to manage the program within your company.
  2. Conduct a strategic analysis: Identify where EDI has the greatest potential in your business.
  3. Conduct an in-depth analysis: An accurate analysis of the expected costs and return on investment when implementing EDI is essential1.
  4. Develop an EDI solution specific to your business: Choosing the right EDI solution for your business requires a deep understanding of the technical and business challenges for both you and your trading partners.
  5. Choosing the right EDI network provider (VAN): Most companies believe that using the services of an EDI provider is the smartest decision from a business and financial perspective.
  6. Integrate EDI into your business: How an EDI system is integrated depends on the customization work required and the number of internal systems it needs to communicate with.
  7. Integrate data into your business: Data from internal and external systems should be analyzed to ensure that it can be translated and imported into your EDI system.
  8. Perform data mapping: To ensure seamless data transmission between internal applications and trading partners, documents must be mapped.
  9. Create a pilot: Before you go live with your entire trading partner community, it’s a good idea to choose a small number of partners to test the system.
  10. Implement EDI with trading partners: The final step is to implement EDI with your trading partners. This should be done in a phased manner in line with your current business priorities.
