"DataDirect XML Converters - It differs from any other approach: it can virtually handle any EDI message, even those which are not known to the converter itself! Secondly, it can easily be integrated in Java and .NET programs, which suits perfectly in the XI context. And, last but not least, its licensing cost is fair and affordable."
“EDI message exchange with SAP or any other infrastructure is a complex task – whatever format you choose on-the-other-side, EDI must be handled carefully and that’s not easy with the various EDI dialects that exist,” said Ricardo Andres Maienza, TalentLab consultant and member of the SAP Developer Network. “That’s why we use the DataDirect XML Converters product, because it can handle virtually any EDI message, easily integrates with Java and .NET programs and can reduce the time spent with EDI messages in SAP Exchange Infrastructure from weeks to just hours.”

"The XML Converters replace an internally developed EDI translator which was proving impossible to develop to meet the new standards. Together with the XML Converters, the Harbour Board uses DataDirect's Stylus Studio to create templates for the messages, saving hours of development time."

"After redesigning our EDI import and export processes, we found that by using the DataDirect XML EDI Converter engine we were able to significantly reduce the resources necessary for mapping data. This has dramatically reduced our time to market for our EDI mapping functions which allows us to be even more competitive in our industry."
"I was looking for ways to improve our integration with other applications and businesses. We already had a significant development of ours called Datahub which acts as a communications hub for the supply chain which can use flat text files. It seemed the next logical step to look for something using XML as the medium for data exchange. I needed a tool that was powerful, reasonable in price and quick to implement. DataDirect XML Converters has given us that for the EDIFACT integration project by using the EDIFACT adapter and the Java deployment we have created a mapping to the standard Rosettanet which we use to get data in and out of the Datahub. The EDIFACT adapter took a major piece of the development, the initial processing of the EDI message, and allowed the application of the style sheet to provide a flexible and so far stable platform for conversion. This will now lead to expansion of the initial EDIFACT development and greater use of XML thought out our warehouse management application." — G. Gittins, Operations Director, ATMS.
"Legacy integration is one of the toughest problems to solve in most of our customer environments. Stylus Studio's EDI to XML conversion tools and DataDirect XML Converters let us quickly integrate legacy data into our Industry Basic Information System(IBIS) using industry-standard XML technologies and components." Said Dr.Slavomír Lajda, Managing Director at Chirasys s.r.o, a Slovakian systems integrator engaged in delivering advanced ERP solutions for manufacturing and distribution firms world-wide. "Enhanced productivity in our development cycles coupled with thousands of built in EDI adapters and the ability to easily design custom EDI to XML adapters have won DataDirect XML Converters a role on our team."
