Why APIs and EDI Are More Complementary Than Competitive
One of our frequently viewed blog posts from a couple of years ago is “API vs EDI: Complementary, Not Competitive.” The article was a response to the question, “Can API’s replace EDI?”
In the years since we posted this, the interest and number of questions about the relationship between APIs and EDI have grown. The challenge has changed as companies look to modernize capabilities and derive greater value and insight from all types of B2B interactions.
The points made back then are still valid; the two complement each other more than they compete. What has become more apparent is that business transformation projects need more flexible B2B integration solutions and faster results.
