Business Network: Extreme Connectivity

Organizations that incorporate extreme connectivity into their business strategy are able to support accelerated business processes with anyone, anywhere, in any format, securely. Information exchange helps control how information is delivered across a business network. With data integrity and built-in security, organizations can execute transactions and share information to drive value and competitive advantage. As the volume of business transactions grow, organizations are relying on cloud-based data exchanged solutions like electronic fax and Managed File Transfer (MFT) to effectively manage their information exchange while reducing costs.

The Business Network

The OpenText Business Network is a set of cloud-based solutions within EIM that facilitates the efficient, secure, and compliant exchange of information between organizations. It is a combination of Business-to-Business (B2B) integration software, the OpenText Trading Grid, and Managed Services. The latest release of the OpenText Business Network represents the next step in the evolution of information exchange.

We have made a number of improvements and additions to the OpenText Business Network, including:

  • B2B Integration with Active Applications for Procure-to-Pay: This release features Logistics Track & Trace to follow the physical movement of goods for improved end-to-end supply chain visibility. Organizations can calculate new arrival times for in-transit products with Dynamic Pipeline Calculation. In addition, Deductions Management helps U.S. retailers identify and remove duplicate deductions, resulting in fewer disputes.
  • Trading Grid Analytics: The integration of Trading Grid analytics for Managed Services and Active Applications provides added insight into operational and supply chain performance.
  • Fax2EDI & Email2EDI: Customers are able to capture standard trading partner information, including paper and transport, to streamline the flow of goods, communication, and commerce across the Trading Grid.

OpenText Release 16 brings together the right combination of services and technologies, helping connect and exchange critical business data in a secure, reliable, and scalable environment. This is extreme connectivity in action, powering information companies with deeper business process support and rich analytics across the extended trading ecosystem.

As trading ecosystem grows, the Cloud plays an increasingly important and strategic role. I’ll discuss this in my next post in this series.
