Challenges of Enterprise B2B Data Exchange with Managed File Transfer
As the business or technical leader in your organization, you are most likely aware that your company’s ability to collaborate and share data is key to successful business growth. However, integrating and exchanging data from disparate systems can be quite a challenge for an array of reasons.
Your work involves different technologies and a variety of processes and people, all accustomed to their existing workflows.
- Not only do you have to keep up with changing technology, but also with global factors moving you to share data remotely with users in a variety of silos.
- Data exchange must include system and business value know-how, and therefore your technical IT team needs to understand different data formats along with best practices, multi-enterprise data integration.
- You may face exponential growth of data from a variety of sources. Your organization needs a strategy to proactively integrate, manage and understand when your data is ready for long-term archiving and retrieval (LOTAR)
- Your system users will often take the path of least resistance and choose to exchange data by unsecure means such as email or ‘drop-box’ like solutions.
