From time to time, business-to-business integrations can break. Too often companies don’t discover that their integrations have failed until a client or trading partner calls and complains. But this doesn’t have to be the case. Modern integration platforms
can give you better tools for the transparency and insight you need.
Modernizing your integration and EDI platform
doesn’t have to mean a large, custom project. There are specific tools on the market today that offer insights and reporting out of the box, without having to spend the time and effort creating a custom solution. In fact, newer integration technology has built-in tools that can keep you informed on the status of your system with just a checkbox.
One of our favorite platforms for integrations is Microsoft Azure
. We like the Azure platform for B2B integrations because it’s a well-rounded cloud platform that makes your integrations easy to tie into other business components and is secure and easy to scale. Azure is a platform that can handle your integrations, reporting, custom software, website and much more. When everything is in the same cloud platform together, it makes it very easy to link all these aspects of your business. Additionally, as a cloud platform, you won’t have to buy server equipment or maintain your own system—it’s all handled for you in a monthly fee. This also gives you excellent reliability, so you can rest assured that if anything goes down, it will be back up quickly.
