An IDEA Partner and Diamond Sponsor of the Event, Liaison Will Jointly Present with IDEA the Advantages of Leveraging a Managed Services Model for Integration
ATLANTA, July 31, 2017 — Liaison Technologies, a recognized leader in cloud-based integration and data management solutions, announced today that the company will showcase the award-winning Liaison ALLOY™ Platform that powers IDEA’s next-generation Industry Data Exchange (IDX) at the upcoming IDEA eBiz/NAED Technology Conference in Chicago. The event takes place August 2-4, 2017 at the Westin Michigan Avenue and is geared toward electrical distributors and manufacturers. Liaison Technologies, an IDEA partner, is a Diamond Sponsor of the event.
On August 2 starting at 1 p.m., Tom Guzik, Director of Digital Integration Services at IDEA, and Rob Consoli, Chief Revenue Officer at Liaison, will deliver a joint presentation: “EDI: The Advantages and Disadvantages of In-House vs. Outsource Mapping and Translation.” This informative presentation will provide an overview of the pros and cons of handling integration needs in-house or on an outsourced basis and is a must-attend breakout session for IT, supply chain and business leaders in the electrical industry.
“The Liaison-IDEA partnership provides electrical industry professionals the opportunity to access deep integration expertise and resources in a managed services model, all without the high costs and learning curve typically associated with application integration,” said Consoli. “My team and I look forward to highlighting—both during the presentation and on the exhibit floor—the many benefits and possibilities of this partnership.”
The team will demonstrate how the Liaison ALLOY Platform, along with its managed services approach, facilitate all patterns of integration activities, including B2B, MFT, A2A, and hybrid integration. The platform’s any-to-any translation capabilities, best-in-class mapping software, built-in data security, and ability to handle data from all sources in any format powers IDEA’s IDX integration platform, giving electrical distributors and manufacturers the cutting-edge technology and expert resources they need to strengthen partner relationships and provide better service to customers.
“Liaison’s innovative approach to integration has given our customers a real competitive edge,” said IDEA President and CEO Paul Molitor. “We hope to leverage this successful collaboration with Liaison at our upcoming conference to bring the benefits of IDX and cutting-edge cloud integration to even more organizations in the electrical industry space.”
