In September of last year, we released the T-Connect EDI Splitter For BizTalk. We are proud to announce the release and immediate availability of the newest version of the T-Connect EDI Splitter. For the uninitiated, the EDI File Splitter is a Microsoft BizTalk Server pipeline component that enables the rapid splitting of large EDI files within BizTalk Server. These split files are delivered to an user configurable folder location. Along with additional features added to the EDI Splitter for BizTalk, we are also releasing a standalone application for Microsoft Windows available today: The T-Connect EDI Splitter for Windows
A common trend that we have been seeing recently is the similarities in the pain points that companies are often faced with. One of those such pain points is the difficulty in quickly receiving and processing large EDI files having a file size over 10 MB. In one instance, there was a need to receive a HIPAA EDI 834 Enrollment file totaling 1.3 GB, containing roughly 800,000 enrollments. The already powerful BizTalk Server in a 1-1 architecture – 1 BizTalk Server, 1 SQL Server, was having difficulty processing the file. The file would take several hours to process, often taking up several gigabytes of drive space to attempt to disassemble the file using the EdiDisassembler pipeline.
