B2B Transformation Services

Cloud-based data translation and mapping


With DiCentral’s Transformation Services, the focus is on cutting time to value. The keys to this service are solid service levels that will enable your IT organization to establish reliable, repeatable customer service levels in addition to rapid enablement of new trading partners.

B2B Transformation Services

With Transformation Services, DiCentral takes responsibility for all mapping activities required for your B2B initiatives and removes the headache of understanding domestic and international EDI standards, giving you new opportunities to expand your business relationships globally.

A company with a global presence and supply chain is likely to encounter many different EDI standards. These standards can be confusing and difficult to implement if the work is being done in-house, from a centralized location or with a partner who does not have global capabilities. DiCentral’s mapping factory of experts has extensive expertise in trading partner requirements, regional standards, specific transaction sets and local languages.

An engagement with DiCentral for Transformation Services has several key components and deliverables. In addition to the initial setup, production support and maintenance support, every Transformation Services program includes:

  • Consulting and development service to analyze, define and develop document standards conventions, application file specifications and the correlation between the two files
  • Development of the maps to convert the files from the customer’s in-house computer to the required format and vice versa
  • Integration and deployment of maps from a development environment to a production environment
  • End-to-end testing between the customer and their trading partners
  • Map maintenance, such as cross-reference tables
  • Map changes

If a business decides later to migrate this process to an in-house model, DiCentral offers state of the art cloud software tools that can be licensed for on-premise use. These tools support regional EDI standards, including: X12, EDIFACT, Tradacom, Gencod, CXML, XCBL, RosettaNET, GISB, CIDX, BAI, ACH, SWIFT, EIAJ, and PIDX, as well as proprietary and standards-based XML and user-defined formats.

DiCentral’s transformation software tools contain functionality that enables users to:

  • Perform advanced formatting functions for strings, numbers and dates
  • Look up cross-reference values
  • Execute conditional logic based on values or an absence of value
  • Enable filters for aggregating or reorganizing data

We wanted to offer our custom- ers a seamless shopping experi- ence, giving them easy access to all of our products in all of our divisions.
