Business-to-business (B2B) communication has become enormously complex. So your B2B integration infrastructure should be extremely simple. A radically simplified infrastructure, achievable with a unified approach, makes it easy for you to reduce costs, reduce risk, improve customer service, and shorten time-to-market.
Secure File Transfer
As data volumes in your business grow and file-based transactions become larger, costs increase, management and governance becomes complex and difficult and the risk of exposing sensitive information becomes a scary possibility. It’s not just data growth but the increasing need to transmit data securely, in different ways—whether person-to-person, system-to-system, or system-to-human.
Comprehensive Data Security
The best B2B integration environments are fast and flexible, but never at the expense of data security. Your business needs end-to-end, comprehensive data security – from your SAP and ERP systems to the very farthest edges of your network. The answer is to replace the “communications spaghetti” created by fragmented systems with a single, integrated platform that closes common security gaps.
A unified approach to integration works best when it’s built from the ground up, on an open-architecture platform. This makes your integration infrastructure capable of scaling easily as your business requires. Whether scaling up to accommodate growing transaction, partner and business volumes or scaling out to accommodate new business processes. Just because your current integration infrastructure can’t do this doesn’t mean it’s not possible.
Business Process Automation
Business process transformation and modernization become possible with a unified approach to business integration. By intelligently and aggressively automating critical business processes, your business can move faster, save money, and better serve your customers.
Accelerate Business Objectives
What’s on your strategic to-do list for your supply chain? Unifying your approach to business integration can help to accelerate many critical business objectives. Speed up time to market, accelerate business partner transactions, reduce supply chain costs, and protect data to meet compliance and governance requirements. Or all of the above.
Advanced B2B integration isn’t a one-size-fits-all proposition – it’s far too strategic for that limited approach. To help you create the best B2B integration for your business requirements, you need the flexibility to select the deployment option with the best fit. Whether on-premise software, the Collaboration Cloud, or remote management—each option should be designed to get you up and running as quickly as possible.
