Electronic Data Interchange, commonly referred to as EDI, is a process that allows data to be exchanged between businesses in a standard electronic format.
Sales order processing is an area of business where EDI is used extensively. However, up to one-third of EDI orders can contain exceptions — this is where problems surface. Traditional handling methods cause a host of challenges for customer service professionals and the business as a whole.
This eBook aims to expose these issues, while showing how order processing automation can work with existing EDI environments to streamline exception handling and fix any potential problems before they mess up your ERP system and bottom line.

La compliance con il GDPR può essere ottenuta attraverso una combinazione di persone, processi e tecnologia. Questo documento illustra soluzioni che possano aiutare le aziende nel loro percorso verso la compliance con il GDPR. Ma è possibile estendere la protezione e rafforzare ulteriormente i controlli di sicurezza attraverso l'autenticazione forte e del rischio o la workload automation, per automatizzare l'elaborazione dei dati personali, facilitando il rispetto del GDPR e di normative analoghe. Le normative tendono a stabilire i requisiti minimi richiesti ma, nell'application economy, le aziende aperte devono garantire la due diligence per proteggere una delle risorse più importanti e critiche: le informazioni private dei clienti.
Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software can help your company keep up with the increasing complexity of developing today’s high-tech products. While smaller companies may use relatively simple Product Data Management (PDM) tools, larger companies rely on full-featured PLM systems that help automate processes and share data across global supply chains. Mid-size companies can feel stuck because PDM is too basic, but PLM feels out of reach.
This resource will help you:
• Recognize why “simple” solutions fall short and do not support your capabilities
• Better connect to customers and the supply chain
• Drive higher product development speed
• Get started with the right PLM solution
Midsize manufacturers need a system that quickly delivers the core capabilities they need to streamline product development but also gives them room to grow value over time. So, what’s the right size PLM to fit a midsized high-tech company? Download this resource and take a look.
Obtaining a first-mover competitive advantage or faster time-to-market requires a new wave in analytics. Dassault Systèmes remains a leading innovator in Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and has invested heavily in analytical technologies to further drive business benefits for its customers in the related areas of planning, simulation, insight and optimization.
This white paper examines the challenges peculiar to PLM and why Dassault Systèmes’ EXALEAD offers the most appropriate solution. It also clearly positions EXALEAD PLM Analytics alongside related technologies like BI, data-warehousing and Big Data solutions.
Understand and implement PLM Analytics to access actionable information, support accurate decision-making, and drive performance.
Project management relies primarily on past performance to predict future results, however many companies still lack forward-looking capabilities to predict project outcomes and ensure success. Enhancing project management with PLM analytics offers the opportunity to switch from task-based activities to performance-driven ones to improve success rates.
Use PLM Analytics to:
• Gain actionable insight and valuable intelligence
• Dramatically boost business value and improve project management performance
• Reduce error-prone behavior like manual data collection
• Leverage big-data capabilities and project intelligence
Learn how to extend the value of your PLM investment and improve business performance for your company.

This will appear under the headline in some cases; in other cases, just the long description will appear. Both descriptions should work independently of each other and not be super redundant if possible:
Relying on point products to protect your network is a losing strategy. Having tools than your IT team can handle raises costs, complexity and risk. Deploying enterprise security architecture with control over enforcement, coordination, end-to-end visibility and process automation from a single pane of glass, is the winning approach.

Traditionally, the best practice for mission-critical Oracle Database backup and recovery was to use storage-led, purpose-built backup appliances (PBBAs) such as Data Domain, integrated with RMAN, Oracle’s automated backup and recovery utility. This disk-based backup approach solved two problems:
1) It enabled faster recovery (from disk versus tape)
2) It increased recovery flexibility by storing many more backups online, enabling restoration from that data to recover production databases; and provisioning copies for test/dev.
At its core, however, this approach remains a batch process that involves many dozens of complicated steps for backups and even more steps for recovery. Oracle’s Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance (RA) customers report that total cost of ownership (TCO) and downtime costs (e.g. lost revenue due to database or application downtime) are significantly reduced due to the simplification and, where possible, the automation of the backup and recovery process.
Robotic process automation (RPA) promises huge gains for business services, including lower costs, better market insight and an improved customer experience. But implementing RPA requires a clear plan of action.

Although typically thought of as an artifact of legacy computing, batch processes remain vital to today’s real-time enterprises. Behind the real time systems that power the real time enterprise, such as customer order fulfillment, account management, supply chain scheduling and optimization, or financial trading systems, are regularly-updated back office business systems. Over the years, batch technology has evolved from script-based automation to rules or policy-driven workload automation.
Enterprise Job Scheduling, once the back office function of Operations in the mainframe world, has evolved to become a critical factor in the real time enterprise (RTE).

The recent economic downturn and corporate scandals compounded concerns of corporate accountability and confidence in U.S businesses. To improve shareholder confidence in management’s ability to self-govern, the Federal Government implemented strict regulatory protocols to help restore accountability and improve public as well as shareholder confidence. The primary example of course is the Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Act of 2002 which sought lasting eradication of corporate corruption by implementing specific controls across key financial business processes.
CA Workload Automation brings a central point of control and visibility to help assure efficient, reliable and secure business process management. It enables business workload design across platforms and operating systems, offering advanced monitoring and automated responses to changes and exceptions.
Despite increasingly complex data center environments, IT is expected to provide business owners with faster service, higher reliability, and greater agility than ever before – all within a tight budget. It is impossible to meet these goals with manual IT processes. However, EMA research shows that IT Process Automation (ITPA) helps achieve these goals, delivering annual savings of $500,000 on staff costs alone, and 64 hours of additional uptime per year – plus improved resource utilization, security and compliance, problem response times, and agility.

he pursuits to reduce costs and avoid unplanned downtime remain primary operational goals in industrial plants. A convergence of factors has created an opportunity for industrial organizations such as manufacturing, oil and gas, chemicals and water treatment companies to aggressively pursue both. Although the pace of investment can be relatively slow in industrial automation (IA), technological advances, economic trends and market pressures have created an environment in which plants are compelled to modernize operational technology (OT) in order to ensure maximum efficiency and minimum process interruptions.
Simply put, OT is getting old. The industrial sector is heavily capital-intensive and traditionally utilizes equipment with long lifecycles.
Organizations with such outdated automation systems are in dire need of OT modernization to keep up with the pace of change, customer demands and business priorities, and reduce the risk of critical failures and costly downtime. Download th
