The managed file transfer solution OpenDXM GlobalX – referred to below as "GlobalX" - offers the functions needed to meet these requirements. Together with Schaeffler, the current data exchange processes, previously stored in OpenDXM, were analyzed and evaluated with a view to migration to GlobalX. Apart from a few minor process adaptations, which impose no restrictions whatsoever on users, it was possible to make all the data exchange processes previously mapped with OpenDXM available in GlobalX. With GlobalX, users at Schaeffler user now have an even easier-to-use, browser-based interface and a convenient Windows integration available to them.
Following migration from OpenDXM to GlobalX, which offers powerful encryption functions and automation options, Schaeffler now has at its disposal a modern data exchange platform that allows globally distributed sites and cooperation partners to be integrated easily but nevertheless securely.
