Data Conversion

Data Conversion is the process of changing or translating information of one format into another. It is a critical step in enabling different IT systems to seamlessly exchange crucial business-critical information, such as when enabling newer DoD systems to communicate with legacy or commercial systems.

We support the DOD eBusiness Hub, a major fielding that handles over 2.5 million transaction processed per day between more than 17,600 trading partners, with a projected workloads of over 19 million transactions daily (7 billion annually) in the next four years.

    System Integration

    RDSI supports eBusiness projects for the DoD, its trading partners, and commercial activities. Through our work efforts we directly support the flow of DoD logistics data for requisitioning, financial and transportation data, with minor involvement in procurement data flow. We provide the mapping and translation of logistics data between the Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, DLA, and their associated government and commercial trading partners. Through our translation and mapping services RDSI supports the data integration of the modernized ERP systems of the DoD. RDSI is a major player in assuring secure and continuing exchange of data between the DoD and commercial activities, their trading partners, and the end users of the data.

    The work we perform utilizes both DOD and commercial networks, supporting all DOD logistics activities and their commercial trading partners, across multiple standard and non-standard systems, both legacy and emerging ERP based systems, using several transaction formats, such as MILS, X12, XML, IDOCs and User Defined File structures or UDFs. Data is exchanged using numerous communications protocols and encryption methods.
