What it is and why it’s important.
Traditional, manual-based data exchange processes are often too complex, inefficient, and error-prone to use and manage. In addition, they don’t offer the real-time capabilities that businesses need to do business at the speed of digital.
That’s where Business to Business integration comes in. Also known as B2B, it automates communication and processes between your business and customers, suppliers, financial institutions, and regulatory databases. This approach to secure data sharing works by collecting information from your applications, standardizing it to the needs of each partner, and then sending the documents to the right organization as required.
By automating these processes, you ensure your trade partners can easily and securely exchange the critical business data you need to work in a digital world.
The two terms are often used interchangeably to describe the method for connecting partner databases and applications. Electronic data interchange (EDI) is an established technology that is often found in supply chain processes like order-to-cash and procure-to-pay. However, it’s only capable of asynchronous interactions and is confined to standardized protocols.
A modern solution uses APIs to permit real-time access and sharing of data directly into business applications. As a result, this makes B2B ideal for use cases like e-commerce, real-time payments, social, and customer experience.
It’s not a matter of picking one or the other; both have a place in your data exchange stack. The key is to use a centralized integration solution to connect securely while reducing operational risk and costs.
A B2B solution creates a single source of truth and control for all data connections between your organization and the systems of your customers, suppliers, banks, and other business partners. Because every organization has its own methods, B2B processes, applications, and data sources, a modern approach is critical to automate the collection and exchange of files in a way that makes it easy for everyone to access and understand.
B2B helps you stay ahead of the competition and drive business growth by making it simple to manage all your B2B transactions using a single solution. It can help you:
- Empower partners by making it simple to onboard, manage, and provision endpoints
- Improve communication across your entire partner ecosystem, regardless of their specific B2B messaging protocols
- Simplify EDI through flexible, drag-and-drop visual data mapping and orchestration
- Improve visibility into KPIs and SLAs for actionable insights for both business and IT users
The main point of B2B is to automate supply chain workflows to improve ordering, purchase order processing, business document exchange, and other business processes. Therefore, the technology is integral to organizations with many different connections to customers, suppliers, and financial institutions that exchange data in large volume and in real time. Industries that commonly leverage this approach include manufacturing, e-commerce, retail, logistics, and finance.
