Chancen und Risiken von EDI aus der Lieferantensicht von klein- und mittelständischen Unternehmen anhand ausgewählter EDI-Formate

  • So far, electronic data interchange (EDI) has been primarily used by large companies. They increasingly pressure their business partners to participate in or connect to their EDI infrastructure. Companies, which do not use EDI so far, face the challenge of imple-mentation. Questions, such as the choice of the right EDI approach and the right EDI standard, have to be answered. In addition, there are often high investment costs. Small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are particularly affected due to their limited re-sources and financial means in comparison to those of large enterprises. Based on a structured literature research, information on the state of the art as well as research was consolidated and the opportunities and risks of EDI for small and medium-sized enter-prises were examined. The results show that EDI offers a variety of opportunities ranging from process optimization to competitive advantages, but that these also depend on the degree of integration. The understanding of the own benefits as well as the support of the management plays an important role for the successful adoption, implementation and integration of EDI.
