The Virtual Exchange Service (VES) is a cloud-based platform for creating data exchanges on the Exchange Network. The VES eliminates the need for Partners to create and maintain a node server. The VES supports all of the functions of a node and simplifies the creation of data exchanges. It also supports a new communication model to simplify connectivity, (i.e., the internet services bus).
The Virtual Exchange Service Administrator is a web interface used to configure data flows. New data flows are created and data is published by simply filling out forms, with no coding required. Data exchanges can be imported from a shared version that fills out the forms, allowing Partners to concentrate on mapping data to their staging tables.
“We’re really pleased with the product. [W]hen developing any new flow, we’ll definitely develop it on the Virtual Exchange Services.”
