Graphical EDI to XML Mapping

Altova MapForce® 2017 allows you to map EDI messages to and from XML, as well as a wide variety of other business formats including databases, flat files, Excel, Web services, and other EDI standards. Full support for UN/EDIFACT, ANSI X12, Health Level 7 (HL7), SAP IDoc, IATA PADIS, and TRADACOMS means that you can seamlessly transform all of these EDI formats to XML for integration with other systems.

As organizations increasingly use the Internet to exchange information with customers and trading partners, the value of XML as a format for data exchange has been widely recognized. Standards bodies have developed a variety of XML-based message structures for specialized functions including ebXML, RosettaNet, cXML, UBL, and HL7 version 3. In addition, Web services, which communicate via SOAP (XML messages), have evolved as an attractive alternative to costly Value Added Networks.

Organizations that traditionally used EDI for communication of B2B transactions now often find themselves required to submit or receive data in XML. EDI to XML mapping in MapForce enables you to translate your raw EDI data into any XML format including proprietary storage formats, Web services, and emerging e-commerce standards like ebXML, RosettaNet, cXML, and others - as well as update your HL7 EDI infrastructure to version 3.
