EDI Solution for SAP NetWeaver® PI/PO



Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) enables the computer system from one company to communicate to the computer system of another company and digitally exchange data. This digital exchange of data is in standardized electronic formats, making it possible for a variety of organizations to exchange information easily and without confusion. EDI enables companies to exchange business documents, such as purchase orders and invoices, from computer to computer, with little manual effort.

Because EDI is so critical in the global business economy, it is important for companies to make sure that their systems and programs work with each other. A key component of this is SAP NetWeaver Process Integration (PI), an application builder for integrating business processes and databases from a number of sources.
