Since then, it’s been up to data professionals to tackle the challenge of turning data accessibility into a viable and sustainable benefit for their organizations.

Picture appears courtesy of Tax Credits.  This week's blog article was written by Art Douglas.  "EDI can save your company 99% of the costs of receiving Purchase Orders and forwarding Shipment Notices and Invoices."  That’s the claim made by the author of an article who knows about measuring that kind of thing.  I would add that in my many years in the EDI industry, I have seen many implementations that squander any possible gains by failing to find out the facts before deciding how to implement EDI.
