Forrester Research in March of this year released a very interesting study on B2B trends. Despite what we all think and hear EDI is not dead and actually still has legs, but what is growing however is the use of spreadsheets and other file technologies to transfer business data. Think about it for a moment. People are using Excel spreadsheets, text files, flat files, and pdfs to send and receive orders, pricelists, inventory updates, customs documents etc. You name it gets created in a spreadsheet, text or flat file. If you look at your own organizations you all do it, I would bet money on it.
