To execute B2B transactions in this new world, companies need solutions that deliver capabilities beyond traditional EDI. As I mentioned in my last blog, a unified platform that also offers API management, supports emerging technologies such as chatbots, workflow automation, data cataloging, and data transformation, provides everything an organization might need for B2B-EDI success.
We already have a track record of success helping companies transform the way they connect with partners, and now we are positioned to deliver significant innovation over the next 12-18 months.
We’ve invested in additional AS2 capabilities, such as client certificate authentication, filtering, and communication extensions. We added the ability to extend RosettaNet, TradaCom, and HL7 TP config. There were various enhancements made to the EDIFACT configurations, including error handling, data validation, and improved connectivity with trading partners.
We also introduced the capability to archive data for a more extended period, which empowers companies to start analyzing proactively and to be ready for the move to AI.
But we didn’t stop there.
We enhanced our API management capabilities, to make engaging across your entire ecosystem of customers, partners and internal business units even easier.
The ability to connect people and processes with Boomi Flow is another key element of the Boomi Platform. Flow provides a simplified way to automate workflows that connect to key processes such as logistics performance, goods tracking, partner onboarding, and visibility into partner ecosystems. The Flow roadmap has evolved to include employee onboarding, customer 360-degree view — along with Boomi Master Data Hub — as well as chatbots and infrastructure services decoupling.
And, Boomi's recent acquisition of Unifi Software adds data catalog and preparation capabilities to our platform. Boomi Data Catalog and Preparation allows customers to unify, rationalize and connect their data, accelerating business outcomes.
Together, all of these capabilities can help you modernize your B2B processes. Here are a few tips to help you get started.
When beginning any project or business initiative, taking a methodical approach that regularly incorporates input and feedback from all stakeholders helps ensure you don’t miss any critical steps along the way.
With the unified Boomi Platform, you can quickly and effectively connect to partners across your entire ecosystem as well as internal and external systems. Plus, you can automate all the processes — resulting in a win for everyone!
