What does an EDI Analyst do?

EDI analysts are technical specialists who plan, create, analyze, and implement electronic data interchange (EDI) systems and supporting processes. They ensure these systems are working properly to enable the efficient exchange of information between organizations or among internal units within an organization. They also assess the business needs and challenges and identify ways to optimize these systems to best serve those purposes. They are also responsible for testing, maintenance and troubleshooting, and may provide tech support.

EDI analysts often have at least an associate degree in a computer science or technical field, and may have worked in tech support or an administrative support role. They must be familiar with EDI systems, and comfortable using EDI programs and validation tools, some of which may be specific to the particular industry.
