Third Party EDI versus In-house Systems: Which is better?

Small companies are gravitating toward in-house processing for EDI integration. This explains why the electronic data interchange (EDI) solution market is expected to progress at a robust CAGR of ~8% during the forecast period. However, it has been argued whether large companies are opting for third party EDI. It has been found that third party EDI is significantly cost-intensive for large companies. Hence, companies are charging per relationship instead of per purchase order or per transaction.

The electronic data interchange (EDI) solution market is largely consolidated, as leading EDI companies such as Open Text are purchasing EDI translation companies including Liaison. The increasing number of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) has resulted in fewer options for clients or consultants to choose from. Thus, established market playing are posing as a major challenge for emerging market players.

API Emerges as Threat to EDI Due to Improvements in B2B Processes

EDI has a potential threat from modern APIs (Application Programming Interface). However, it has been argued that EDI is here to stay, at least, during the upcoming decade. Companies in the electronic data interchange (EDI) solution market are capitalizing on incremental opportunities, as many organizations are opting for cloud-based integration platforms (iPaaS) that accelerate processes and reduce time taken to complete EDI integrations. Modern iPaaS is known for its intuitive attributes and robust functioning in the IT industry.

Next-gen iPaaS platforms are predicted to enable API enhancements and B2B process improvements sans the need for an IT professional. This has challenged companies in the electronic data interchange (EDI) solution market. However, the shortage of IT skills has emerged as a roadblock for proliferation of API in organizations.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

EDI systems are growing increasingly popular during the COVID-19 pandemic to enable EDI remittance advice among trading partners, which reduce the need for human interaction. Technologies such as AI and IoT are bringing about significant changes in the electronic data interchange (EDI) solution market. However, costly maintenance of EDI involving the need for consultants for upgradation has brought API into the limelight. Hence, companies should adopt innovative pricing strategies and automation technologies to deploy customer conversions, since lack of IT skills is hampering the proliferation of API in B2B processes. Moreover, flexible deployment options are becoming increasingly important in EDI systems, which involve cloud, on-premise, and hybrid deployments.

Key Challenges Faced by Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) Solution Market Players

  • Businesses are currently changing their existing processes, which were previously built around paper. Changing from paper to an EDI platform is difficult for some companies. Large players in the market are quick to adopt EDI platforms, and also integrate their processes with advanced technologies. Companies perceive that EDI has considerably high legal standards, which also hinders the EDI market. Several smaller businesses deal with larger organizations; large organizations are more inclined toward adoption of document standards, which would lead to an interruption in functionality. For instance, some companies follow the X12 standard format, while their trading partners might follow the EDIFACT standard. Furthermore, the initial deployment cost of EDI solutions is high, owing to the implementation, customization, and training of employees. Companies face a shortage of skilled EDI staff and hence, they face challenges in training the staff, since the cost of training is considerably high.
