Electronic data exchange between trading partners has become an imperative for commercial organizations and public institutions alike. To remain relevant, cost-competitive or even viable, companies must replace manual processes with automated solutions. For larger entities, in particular, the digitization of business-to-business communication entails the planning, development, testing, and deployment of point-to-point connections with dozens of, in some cases thousands of, discrete trading partners. This backlog of time-consuming interface work creates a resource strain and expense that challenges even the most well-staffed and well-funded information technology teams. In this case, the study learned how PilotFish has dramatically reduced the man hours, calendar days and budget hours required to successfully onboard electronic trading partners using the innovative eiTestBed framework.
