Easy Graphical Drag & Drop EDI Data Mapping in PilotFish’s eiConsole for X12
Just as the eiConsole’s EDI format reader simplifies parsing and reading in X12 EDI transactions, the EDI Data Mapper component simplifies mapping these transactions. The Data Mapper component provides a unique, robust triple-pane paradigm that supports mappings of any length and any complexity. Mapping remains graphically functional throughout. Unlike “graphical” line drawing mapping tools that can quickly become indecipherable, the triple-pane design can easily handle even the most complex mappings.
In the eiConsole, you create your interfaces using prebuilt configuration panels – no coding or scripting required. When using the eiConsole’s Data Mapper component, X12 EDI transactions for the entire specification are all mapped simply and quickly following a consistent user interface and methodology regardless of the format. So now your team only needs to learn and use one tool, no matter what the data format.

In the eiConsole’s Data Mapper:
- Once a single mapping is created, it can be added to an instantly reusable library of EDI transform templates that quickly evolves to cover the majority of your needs.
- Mapping from EDI to another format, or from another format to EDI, is streamlined with drag & drop functionality and format readers supporting almost any format.
- Up to 90% of any EDI mapping can be done by business analysts or other non-developer professionals.
- “Friendly Naming” for elements provides human-readable names for EDI records and segments.
Leverage Built-In Productivity and Ease-Of-Use EDI Tools
Data Mapping in the eiConsole for Healthcare is accomplished by just dragging elements from the Source (left) pane or Target (right) pane into the center panel. The eiConsole’s graphical Data Mapper generates W3C compliant XSLT in code view and in real time. Users can switch back and forth between the graphical view (shown) and the XSLT view by toggling between the tabs. Any changes made in one are reflected in the other.
Unlike other EDI Interface Engine solutions, PilotFish provides a consistent means to adeptly handle not only large batch-oriented data and EDI messaging, but also highly conversational XML and JSON APIs – including new versions of X12, HL7 FHIR, and any other data format or industry standard that you need. Configuration just requires changing a handful of options in the application.
With PilotFish’s graphical Automated Interface Assembly Line process, interfaces are consistently built faster.
