Learn about data exchange formats and standards for EDI in a 1-day training
UN/EDIFACT, Flatfile, GS1 EANCOM®, SAP IDoc, Odette Recommendations and others: More about the most common data formats and EDI standards in the EDI environment
Why should you learn more about EDI data exchange formats or EDI standards? They include the technical format descriptions and at the same time offer a content framework for data exchange – thus providing an important basis for exchanging exactly the information required for smooth electronic data exchange.
EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) is often considered to be the same as EDIFACT. Yet EDI comprises all standards that replace the paper document in the B2B and B2C environment. In this training you will not only get to know the industry-independent EDI standard UN/EDIFACT, but also gain insights into other EDI standards, such as GS1 EANCOM® and the new VDA Recommendations: these are based on EDIFACT and have been further specified with a focus on a specific industry. In order to identify the similarities and differences, we introduce you to features and structures of these eBusiness standards.
