Travel Diaries: Hongkong~Disneyland & Oceanpark

My Life

Though I’ve visited few theme parks in Hyderabad & Beijing. It isn’t the same with Hong kong’s Disneyland & Ocean park. I felt for the magic spell of Disneyland and adrenaline rush of Ocean park. I made this visit in June end 2009. Its almost been 6 years but still the memories are so intact that I feel this, as if it happened yesterday. We only carried a small digital camera so the pictures are not upto the mark. I wish I can show you guys all the rides and activities we did but I can’t and don’t want to because I wanted you people to go to Hong kong to experience it..

Numerous fire departments remain on the scene at Building 6 and a shelter-in-place order has been issued for an area within a two-mile radius of Appliance Park. are on the scene of a massive blaze at General Electric’ s Appliance Park.

Authorities expanded the original half-mile radius area shortly after noon but reduced it back down to a half-mile due to changing weather conditions. Shelter-in-place means residents are recommended to go inside, close doors and windows, turn off air conditioning or heating systems, and turn on the radio or TV for more information.

Since I entered in the EDI industry in 1996, I have not seen a more promising time to be in this market. The GXS era was an unfortunate disruption to the natural growth of a networked market; however, under the new management of OpenText opportunity is back. Now that we avoided the apocalypse, it is time for us, the leaders of the industry, to deliver the next generation of B2B automation. In the coming months Loren Data will begin rolling out the next evolution of the EDI VAN, one that is more user and developer friendly, more extensible…

Yet Another Predictor For This Year

Lot of folks enjoyed this

PenneyVanderbilt

As 2015 begins to roll, it’s time to consider what this year may bring along with it in terms of issues and opportunities along the supply chain. Certainly things will change as they always do, but whether those changes will be good for each of us individually or not will depend on circumstances that will be different for every company.


In his story “Supply Chain Predictions for 2015” our own Michael Martz looked at topics including big data, robotics, drones, and the Internet of Things. I agree that all those expanding technologies will have significant impacts on everyone in the supply chain in the coming years. But I also think that the most significant issue we will see this year will be something prognosticators tend to disregard.

What Wikipedia Won’t Tell You About EDI

KCJones

Picture appears courtesy ofGiulia Forsythe.  This week’s blog was written by Kristen Kearns, Manager of EDI Services for Aurora Technologies.  Lots of people search for information on Wikipedia, don’t they?  What Wikipedia doesn’t tell you about EDI, could hurt you!  Or hurt your business.  Read on to get the 411.

First off, Wikipedia talks about Standards in EDI.  EDI standards are not the “be all end all” of a successful EDI operation.  I’ve seen all types of variations to the Standards.  This runs the gamut from data not being where it’s supposed to be to not following element code standards or putting too long or too short data in data elements, etc.  How do you work around this?  If you have a robust EDI solution, such as Liaison’s Delta/ECS, you could have separate maps for each trading partner accommodating for those variations.
