Objective: We are looking for a product API that has flexibility to return specific types and amounts of data that will fully support automation processes; integrated with other parts of our company's system.
Our company is developing an automated method of managing all aspects of our business partner records across all our internal systems - MFT being one such system. We envision an automation framework with which we can easily, efficiently and uniquely identify and manage each trading partner across all our systems. To accomplish this we need an efficient and flexible interface to SFG/B2Bi that allows us to bring on and manage new partners, and synchronize that process across all of our systems. Additionally, the interface must be able to create or update SFG/B2Bi trading partner records with API response codes rather then errors.
We welcome IBM recommendations. Keep in mind the resulting data will be used with, by and for external, non-SFG/B2Bi applications. We also welcome IBM recommendations as to the best way to collect the results - whether in an external database or a repository which will be the live system of record - which houses only key indices per trading partner. We will handle de-duplication in the external database or repository.
