Industry Specific Requirements and Their Impact on Business and System Integration

Posted by Scott Hulme on Aug 25, 2016 2:32 PM


I recently attended an EDI enablement session that included a Remediclient as a speaker addressing how industry specific requirements impact his company's EDI and integration environments.  The client is in the distribution industry, of which EDI is the backbone to any company in that industry that wants to meet the demands of its customers and various trading partners.  These demands include doing everything that they do faster, more effectively, and cheaper than their competitor to ensure excellent relationships with their customers and trading partners while maintaining as much profitability in a razor-thin margin industry.

On Premise Software v Cloud Based Solutions.  What Is Your Preference?

Posted by Scott Hulme on Mar 11, 2016 11:00 AM


A huge topic that we are hearing from our customers is the choice they have to make between implementing an on premise software solution vs. a cloud based solution.  They often are struggling with the decision, and a majority of the time they are very confused about what each brings to the table.  As in everything, there are pros and cons to each choice.  There are many articles that you can research that outline all of the pros and cons associated with each approach.  I am not going to go into that in this blog. 

What I would like to address is the philosophical approach that plays a pivotal role in which solution you choose.  Some companies are much better aligned to one approach over the other based on the philosophical nature of the organization.  This philosophical alignment is rooted deep in each organization from its leadership teams to its employees and from its business model to its focus on the customer.  The on premise vs. cloud decision can significantly alter the company philosophy that you have rooted within your organization if you do not select the appropriate choice that aligns with your company's core beliefs.

Wow!  That was fast!  2015 and the year end holidays were a blur and are over.  We are now full speed ahead into 2016.  Many organizations spent the end of 2015 wrapping up their initiatives so that they could approach 2016 with a clean slate and start to plan for all of the new projects and challenges that a new year brings.  Many organizations are also evaluating the previous year and taking stock of where they are starting out 2016.

What Drives EDI in Your Organization, IT or Business?

Posted by Scott Hulme on Nov 13, 2015 1:00 PM


It is interesting to me the diversity in the titles of the people I speak with that deal with EDI at different companies.  From EDI Analysts, EDI Managers, EDI Directors, CIOs to CFOs, VPs of Sales, Business Development Managers, and Business Analysts, they are all affected by EDI one way or another.  They have all become involved in my conversations with companies that are in the process of architecting, planning, or evaluating their EDI environment.

Today is the first official day of Fall.  With the beginning of Fall, it signals that football season is getting started, baseball season is wrapping up, and hockey season is right around the corner.  With the beginning of Fall, change occurs.  The changes are visible all around us.  It also signals the beginning of the end.  The beginning of the end of the year is upon us.  Fourth quarter.  The charge to year end.
