EDI and APIs: Two B2B integration patterns coming together

Electronic data interchange (EDI) continues to play a key role in B2B integration. But we can’t ignore the rise of application programming interfaces (APIs) and their role in connecting the modern digital world.

It’s clear these two B2B integration patterns need to coexist in the future of EDI. When EDI and API work alongside each other, businesses are in a position to solve modern B2B integration challenges tied to configurations, operations, and transactions.


With the right EDI and API integration strategy, you can preserve all the investments you’ve made over the years while finding new ways to be proactive and innovative. It’s a matter not only of using technology to your advantage but also ensuring that the current and future workforce meets in the middle to support one another.
