    SEEBURGER Cloud Integration Managed Service

    We offer EDI as a service in our SEEBURGER Cloud , with best-in-class service levels and easy access to our large repository of over 15,000 standard mappings. Thanks to our canonical map strategy, we have ready-made mappings which covert your partners’ various EDI formats into a standardised XML-based meta interface structure. This decouples them from your ERP interfaces. Now, partner connections and ERP connections can be managed independently of one another and easily integrated into the service. Native support for modern APIs makes the EDI service a valuable integration cloud service, which can be used in many situations, such as in the image above (see figure below).

    A huge range of communication channels are readily available, including connections via OFTP2, AS2, SFTP, REST, JSON etc. or even a connection to our SEEBURGER VAN (powered by our partner DXC). Our B2B Onboarding Service also offers direct connections to thousands of business partners, which can be activated at any time.

    These connectors and our ready-made mappings reduce time and effort in setting up and operating your integration platform. They also provide more flexibility and agility in responding to changing business needs. Consolidating EDI and API in one cloud-based service – that is the future of EDI!

    SEEBURGER’s Cloud Integration Managed Service integrates systems, applications, data and business partners for you – both within your organisation and beyond.
