ATLANTA, Jan. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Liaison Technologies, an industry-recognized leader in cloud-based integration and data management solutions, today announced that it is offering businesses facing the sunset of legacy IBM Sterling Gentran® EDI software solutions a price incentive plus an accelerated and simplified migration path to a new future-proof integration and data management environment with its ALLOY™ Platform.

"End-of-support for several versions of IBM Sterling Gentran EDI translation software has now arrived, leaving many enterprises in a state of confusion," said Rob Consoli, Senior Vice President of North American Sales with Liaison. "The Liaison ALLOY Platform, the industry's first Data Platform as a Service, provides the answer. Unlike alternative on-premises migration paths offered, ALLOY will enable businesses to more quickly and easily move to a modern, flexible, cloud-based environment that ensures uninterrupted exchange of EDI between trading partners. The platform also equips users to handle the integration of new types of data sources and changing standards and interfaces in today's data-driven market."

Reasons to move to Liaison's ALLOY Platform include the following:

  1. Free access to Liaison's tier one Value Added Network (VAN) for a full year.
  2. Benefit from the world's most advanced cloud platform for EDI and all other integration needs.
  3. Simplified migration through ALLOY's automated mapping tool.
  4. Meets stringent PCI DSS, SOC 2, and HIPAA compliance requirements.

Liaison has successfully completed numerous migrations from Gentran. Businesses moving to Liaison's ALLOY Platform will benefit from its automated mapping tools that leverage Liaison's patented Contivo™ software to ease and speed the reconstruction of data maps and secure the flow of information between trading partners. With alternative migration options, maps often have to be manually rebuilt, adding time, complexity and resource requirements to the migration and putting vital connections at risk.

Liaison currently supports more than 250,000 active trading partners on the cloud platform. Businesses migrating to ALLOY will have access to this extensive library of trading partners to further accelerate onboarding and connecting.

The Liaison ALLOY Platform offers unprecedented real-time visibility into the journey of both transactional and operational data using a standard web browser. This enhanced visibility provides context for deeper insights into operations and workflows and faster turnaround of insight from EDI data. During migration, ALLOY users will leverage the platform's visibility capabilities to bridge the gap between EDI software packages, making it easier and faster to identify and resolve issues. 

ALLOY platform users will save both time and resources by relying on Liaison's staff to oversee the migration, as well as day-to-day EDI operations. As the first Data Platform as a Service (dPaaS), ALLOY is the only cloud platform that offers integration as fully managed services while giving users access and control at the data layer.

Unlike other EDI options, which are based on older integration technologies less suited for today's data-driven market, the Liaison ALLOY Platform is based on modern microservices architecture which enables users to scale quickly to meet expanding integration needs. The future-ready solution unifies end-to-end integration and data management workflows on a single shared cloud platform, which helps organizations gain quality insights faster from data that traverses their enterprise, and makes it easier to secure data and achieve comprehensive compliance across multiple regulations. With ALLOY, businesses leverage the freedom and flexibility of the cloud to tackle complex integration and data initiatives with speed, agility, reliability and security.
