Electronic-Data-Interchange, or EDI is a method of computer to computer exchange of various types of
information. While many people know of the internet and the World Wide Web as communication methods,
the electronic-data-interchange is much similar. It allows the transfer of data from one place to the next with
very minimal need for people to get involved.


Today, the Electronic-Data-Interchange is regulated. It offers specific interchange methods that transpire
overseas and nationally as standard bodies when it comes to moving information and business transactions
from one place to the next. For example, this is the most common form of communication in the process of
purchasing goods and services. Communication for the location to the financial institution to deliver a
message of the amount of funds required, in this case, is what data will be transferred.


In most cases, the information that is transmitted in an electronic data interchange is done so that companies
can communicate. They can provide information to allow business transactions or the passage of very
important information. For example, in the healthcare industry they can be used to help communicate
through the network about a patient allowing for a faster method of receiving information. This technology
is still being developed in many areas, though.


In fact, more and more so, people are turning to Electronic-Data-Interchange as their means of
communication especially with more people turning to the Internet. The Electronic-Data-Interchange allows
for networks of all sorts to communicate and this is helping ecommerce as a great way for companies to buy,
sell or trade information and services. In fact, ANSI has just approved a set of Electronic-Data-Interchange
standards. They are known as the X12 standards. Nonetheless, you will see more and more people using
them because more and more people are getting online to do just these things.
