It's Throwback Thursday (and May 4th, see pic) so to celebrate we are reprinting our most popular blog article.  Photo appears courtesy of Michel Curi.  

I get many calls each month from suppliers who have been told by their customer that they need to be EDI capable.  And their first question is, "What is EDI capable?"  Simply stated, being EDI capable is the capability to send and receive electronic business documents in a specific format based on established standards.  There are essentially two ways to accomplish EDI capability:  Outsource or buy your own software.

SHA-1 produces a 160-bit (20-byte) hash value known as a message digest.  A SHA-1 hash value is typically rendered as a hexadecimal number, 40 digits long.

This week's blog was written Aurora's Manager of EDI Hosting, Kim Zajehowski.  Having been deemed the “AS2 Queen” in EDI circles, I thought it would be nice to summarize five of the most common mistakes that I have encountered in working with AS2 connections and support. The AS2 communication protocol for EDI can be a very cost efficient solution for companies wanting to exchange documents directly with their EDI trading partners to encrypt and secure their EDI data. This protocol can also be used to connect to VANs as well. It can be tricky though to set up especially when it is your first time doing an AS2 connection with a trading partner or VAN.
