A study by Gartner highlights our data integration solutions

05/03/2013

One of the latest analyses carried out by renowned international consultant Gartner on the business solutions most in demand by the electronic data interchange sector positions EDICOM as one of the main specialists in developing B2B platforms ready for data integration between applications.

Key study points:

  • Paradigm shift from traditional in-house models to ASP solutions provided via the cloud.
  • In 2012, investment from businesses in cloud-based data integration solutions grew to the tune of $1.5 billion.
  • EDICOM is recognized as one of the main specialist in developing data integration solutions in ASP-SaaS mode, with a major presence worldwide.

The consultancy’s study shows a growing trend among user businesses towards data integration solutions such as EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) in ASP-SaaS mode (Application Software Provider-Software as a Service). This model provides several advantages compared to traditional solutions installed “in-house”, which translates as significant enhancements in running and administering companies' IT structures, ensuring ongoing service provision continuously adapted to the customer's specific needs at all times. Gartner also mentions the firm commitment made by major worldwide EDI service providers like EDICOM in researching and developing secure and scalable B2B platforms, provided in service mode via the cloud and ready to engage in efficient automatic data transmission between all the different applications the client needs to integrate.

The study signals applications integration as one of the critical points for optimized management of communications between companies, in most cases involving ERP integration with EDI communications platforms.

Market Trends: Main driving and inhibiting factors

The competitive panorama detailed by the Gartner study depicts an increasing tendency in companies around the world to invest in rollout or migration towards transactional electronic data models based on solutions delivered in the “cloud”. They calculate that in 2012 businesses invested 1,200 million dollars and foresee an ongoing increase in investment until 2016, placing the final figure at over 2,500 million.

  • Gartner cites the complexity of developing these solutions in-house for company IT departments as a key element in the drive towards B2B data integration models, favoring the idea of outsourcing complete B2B solutions. Another positive influence on the decision is the cost saving on purchasing licenses and maintaining the technology infrastructure, which are left in the hands of the service provider.
  • In contrast, the main obstacles to outsourcing EDI services and solutions include the youth of a sector still in a formative phase and the fear of delegating the management of the company's most important details and information to third parties. In the particular case of EDICOM, both obstacles are easily overcome through the solidity of a company with 20 years experience in the sector, focusing activity on the development of EDI solutions with a wide range of international certifications that guarantee privacy and security both in data transmission and reception processes and their treatment in the Data Processing Centre.

Market Agents: Principal data integration solution providers

The study situates EDICOM as one of the main suppliers of cloud-based EDI solutions ready for data integration worldwide. It is not without merit that Edicom is an undisputed leader in southern Europe and Central America, providing service to over 10,000 clients.

Key features Gartner cites for EDICOM are:

EDI specialists: The study describes EDICOM as a specialist in developing solutions for the exchange of structured messages between businesses, emphasizing the robustness of the “EDICOM B2B Cloud Platform” technological infrastructure and its data integration capacity.

Internationalization: They point out the international expansion undergone by EDICOM in recent years with the gradual opening of physical offices throughout the American continent, noting the demonstrated balance between commercial and technical expansion as the keystone for guaranteed growth based on the high quality of its EDI services.

Commercial and technical flexibility: The report underlines the capacity for adaptation and scalability of EDICOM solutions in developing medium to large-sized B2B solutions and their technical ability to adapt the technology platform to the constant changes going on in electronic invoicing in almost all continents.
