IBM Sterling B2B Integrator Consulting & Deployment

REMEDI is uniquely experienced with B2B & EDI integration. As an IBM Premier Business Partner and software reseller, we have core expertise with IBM's Sterling B2B Integrator (AKA: Sterling Integrator and Gentran Integration Suite). Our B2B integration services are tailored a number of ways to fit your needs.

At the time of original install, or at upgrade time, our Integration professionals assist clients with Sterling B2B Integrator architecture design, installation, configuration, deployment, and map/BP/profile conversion duties. For clients who are on tight timelines or require enhanced automation, visibility, and business intelligence over the base product, many utilize our REMEDI Framework assets at installation/upgrade time in addition to our professional services. REMEDI is perfectly suited for large-scale B2B integration projects where complexity and tight time lines are involved.

REMEDI consultants can also supplement your IT staff if you have workload challenges, and can provide EDI managed services in your environment managing business infrastructure, performing integration development, and participating in partner facing coordination activities. REMEDI consults with clients developing business cases to take advantage of the full features and capabilities of the B2B Integrator product, adapters, and add-ons. It is often found that clients are only utilizing a small fraction of the product's capabilities.

Given our integration focus and IBM relationship, our integration architects are often called upon for Sterling B2B Integrator training and other specialty requests like clustered configurations, Perimeter Server, Sterling File Gateway, Control Center, Connect:Direct and Managed File Transfer projects.

REMEDI B2B Integrator and Gentran consultants are among the best in North America, if you listen to what our clients say.

 

Sterling B2B Integrator Training

IBM is no longer providing classroom/virtual training where the IBM B2B Integration solutions are concerned...i.e. Sterling B2B Integrator and File Gateway, Gentran, Connect:Direct, etc.  Instead, IBM intends to rely on distributors and partners like REMEDI to deliver training in whatever form the client requires.  As an IBM Premier Business Partner, REMEDI offers product training in an on-site, side by side (OJT) format, virtual side by side format, and classroom format.  Visit our training page or contact us to discuss your training needs.
