Data Interchange is excited to be partnering with Logicalis for its Azure cloud migration project. Logicalis will be supporting Data Interchange during this exciting endeavour, providing them with best practice guidance and support with the migration to Azure cloud services.
The move is an important milestone in Data Interchange’s development strategy, supporting the company to further commit to providing its customers with the best EDI products & services that make EDI easy.
Simon Palmer, Director of Customer Solutions for Data Interchange commented:
“Cloud adoption enables Data Interchange to make EDI easy for our customers, foremost in customers’ minds will be security. Public Cloud providers have inbuilt security in their offerings, whether it is physical security related to their Data Centre or using secure protocols for connections – obviously something fundamental and key to EDI.”
“Cloud can also give businesses the opportunity to make real savings and increase efficiency. No longer do businesses have to pay for a supporting infrastructure that ticks along at 30% utilisation. You pay for what you use and have the ability to scale at your own pace or react to market conditions. Having a cloud-based EDI solution that allows and supports API integration increases the operational efficiencies and ease of onboarding trading partners and suppliers in the EDI supply chain. Working with a services provider like Data Interchange means you can even stop worrying about the management and maintenance of your EDI infrastructure as well as having all your traditional EDI needs resolved. It is as easy as that.”
Paul Stapley, Platforms Practice Director for Logicalis UK commented on the partnership:
“Logicalis UK are delighted to be helping Data Interchange embrace the cloud in their business, driving efficiencies for their customers while increasing security and availability. Cloud migrations can be plagued with issues and unforeseen costs if a project is not scoped accurately, so our role is to make this transition as smooth as possible for Data Interchange and its customers. Cloud is a powerful business enabler, and we are excited to help Data Interchange realise its potential,”
Supply chain management technologies, like cloud supply chain solutions, can be a source of competitive advantage for businesses that are looking for ways to optimise costs and operational efficiencies. More and more businesses are moving to the cloud for an abundance of reasons. When looking at supply chains who have peaks and troughs throughout the year, being able to quickly and easily scale up and down to minimise costs is key. In addition, to be able to remain competitive, businesses with large or complex supply chains need to modernise to form a true end-to-end supply chain
It is clear Data Interchange is looking to the future with their newly implemented strategy. They want to provide their customers and businesses across the world with an EDI solution that offers a complete supply chain service. Thus, enabling businesses to meet their ever-changing market demands and provide exceptional customer experience.
