On the podcast, Mike and Carl discuss the differences between a full-service EDI solution and a managed EDI service provider, system automation and integration, optimization, planning for growth and the value of a business network.

The Connected Enterprise Podcast explores the stories of market leading businesses and how they connect and collaborate in the digital economy. Bill Gates, co-founder of Microsoft, has said “information technology and business have become inextricably interwoven. You can’t talk meaningfully about one without the other.” Of course, the reality is that every business needs to be connected in order to be competitive in our global economy, whether it’s to their value chains, partners, government, or the Internet of things. This podcast explores the opportunities and lessons in achieving profitable and productive business connectivity.
