We do EDI consulting, mostly in the midrange world.  Most of our clients buy
an AS400 based xlator and integrate it into their applications.  However,
you always have cases, where the cost of the translator is too much and we
have done several implementation projects using PC based translators.
Sometimes the PC based EDI translator front ends the AS400 (passes data both
in an out) and sometimes it is pure "rip and read".  We also provide
outsourced EDI solutions.  They are all customized developed.  Sometimes an
outsourcing arrangement will involve receiving proprietary files from our
client and then converting them into EDI and receiving EDI and converting
them into the clients proprietary format.  Other time we just bring in the
EDI, create a print report (ie PO) and email the PO from our 400 to the
client.  We store the POs in a database, then they log onto our AS400 over
the internet and update the requirements for the invoice and we send it out
from our AS400.

On the iSeries Premenos/Harbinger/Peregrine, Gentran and Extol have almost
all the market share.  In the PC arena, there are a zillion players.  On the
PC side I like a product called QualEDI (www.qualedi.com)

Hope this was not too much of a commercial.

Subject: EDI at midrange sites - Off Topic??

I hope that this isn't too far off topic.  I was curious about how other
AS/400 sites are conducting EDI.  Specifically, on a PC or AS/400, what
packages are being used, how many trading partners are involved, interfaced
to AS/400 systems or print and re-key, etc.
