Taking Advantage of Oracle’s B2B Document Exchange Can be Daunting
DCS Has the Answers!
The recent releases of Oracle products such as E-Business Suite™ R12 and EnterpriseOne™ are perfect examples of excellence in business-to-business document exchange. Each has an EDI/e-commerce gateway that properly manages complex documents with ease for continued success. Data Communication Solutions’ (DCS) EDI Specialists have the experience help you navigate through these complex documents.
This complexity derives from different formats of business documents exchanged. Consider the inbound customer Purchase Order (Sales Order) formats for Target Stores:
- Ship-to Distribution Center
- Ship-to D.C. and “cross-dock” for stores
- Ship-to Store
- Ship-to Home
Each type of P.O. must be properly configured or many issues can be encountered.

The challenge with integrating Oracle Application’s EDI/E-C Gateway is activating the several dozen correct fields among the hundreds available for each document and direction. The interface structure can be complex and difficult to tackle. At DCS we work with the three components of reliable and economical EDI:
- The Oracle gateway
- Your existing EDI system
- Secure Internet data transmission (AS2, FTPS, HTTPS, etc.)
This complexity is daunting and leads to the desire to create a custom import/export process. The fact is that Oracle’s business-to-business document exchange relies on gateways that are mature, reliable, and economical.
Most B2B is heavily EDI – the solid X12 Transaction Sets such as the 850 P.O. but there are some GS1US standardized tag XML documents such as RosettaNet’s PIPs.
