MOND EDI - X12 Semantic Repository

EDI - X12 Semantic Repository for Supply Chain, Healthcare, Logistics Industry

MOND EDI - X12 Semantic Framework

MOND Cloud enables rapid collaboration and sharing of information among several partners.MOND is being used by the world's leading transportation providers, suppliers, carriers, freight forwarders, third-party logistics companies and retailers to connect to trading partners to gain agility and improve execution by exchanging critical supply chain information.

MOND supports the different message types for various phases of the Order to Cash life cycle.

EDI Mapping: Using the unique Semantic EDI Parser, MOND makes the task of mapping inbound and outbound EDI messages to your trading partners extremely easy and timebound.

EDI Integration: MOND parsers can convert any standard EDI formats into the specific formats required to integrate with back-end systems.Thhis eliminates manual Order entry and its associated high costs.

EDI Testing: The MOND semantic framework automates testing of all documents exchanged, ensuring a smooth and painless transition to MOND.

MOND EDI Semantic Transformation Benefits

  • EDI Transformations can be built by programmers or analysts. Dramatic improvement in developer's productivity.
  • Higher Data Quality, as correct EDI version will be generated irrespective of the order in which the fields are set.
  • Codeless conversion from EDI to XML and vice versa for more than 80% of the fields.
  • Business validation rules can be created by analysts, without worrying about EDI or XML tags.
  • Easier migration from one version to another. No server restart required when migrating from one message version to another.
  • Easier migration from one standard to another. (Say X12 4010 to 4020 or 5010 ot 5020 or any other version).
  • Easy to understand and maintain.
  • Enables field level testing and comparison of messages as against binary text comparison which is vital in regression testing of data integrations.
  • Reduced costs, higher efficiency and quality of output.

Migration from one version to a higher version of document standards

Messaging standards are continuously evolving to support the ever changing business needs in the SupplyChain, Retail, Automativ and Healthcare industries. For ex. There are some suppliers still using EDI 3010, while many have migrated to EDI 4040 and a few to EDI 5010.Organizations have to adopt newer versions of the messages depending on their trading partners. However, experience shows that migration from one version to a higher version is a painful and time consuming exercise involving rewrite of message transformations and regression testing the applications.

MOND has rendered migration from one version to a higher a trivial exercise, by its semantic transformation technology. The separation of document structures from mapping logic simplifies the whole migration by eliminating the need to rewrite the mapping logic. Just by changing the target document type to a higher version of the message for a transformation map, the message can be generated in the newer format. The only changes that would be required in the mapping logic are to map any new fields that are added to the higher version of the document.

Migration from one document standard to another or adopting an additional standard

Similarly, MOND reduces the time and effort to migrate to newer document standards or to adopt additional document standard. The transformation maps for producing a particular business message in the existing document standard can work for the new document standard also. In the new version a few new EDI tags might be addeded. New code has to be added only for the new tags. The extent of changes / effort can be minimised as long as proper Business Terms are associated for the fields in both the document standards from the MOND Business Terms dictionary.
