The company is the applied technology and architectural thought leader in EDI systems engineering and advanced communications services. Not one other network operator would dare open an API to developers. Conversely, Todd rejoices in making ECGrid ever more open to developers and OEMs – programmers are ‘his people’.

Tweet Without any editorial distortion on my part, Todd Gould, Loren Data Corp’s President, has posted an update on the upcoming appellate hearing (oral arguments) in re Loren Data Corp v. GXS Inc. It is an important update. http://www.ld.com/update-on-antitrust-suit-against-gxs/
Lots of enhancements, optimizations and new functionalities have been added. Especially interesting are:
AS2 and Certificate related functions to support our new integrated AS2 hosting system.
Persistent storage of data attached to various ECGridOS objects.
Pricelists, Contracts and Invoicing functions (still in progress)
As2 Best practices by Loren Data Corp President, Todd Gould.
Web Services are a superior way to deliver network management services as callable functions. They are the holy grail of a newer model of computing: named services for invoking embeddable EDI network task
This last year the EDI community has shown a substantial increasing interest in AS2. But what exactly is AS2? This is the first in a multipart series to examine AS2 and what it means going forward to the EDI industry. If you want all the historical and technical information on AS2, then I suggest you Google AS2. This series is about the practical uses and not to bore you with (too many) details.
In considering these actions and the upcoming appeal, and the 55,000,o000 API calls made to Todd’s fantastic EDI Platform….I would say that in terms of merit, Loren Data Corp and its wonderful partners, the developers who wrote the code that made those API calls….will eventually outweigh GXS’ where it counts: In delivering value to the companies who are “calling EDI’s Future”, a future where the innovators become preeminent. (In other words, GXS saw Todd Gould way back in ’02, saw the man’s vision, and decided to deal dirty. They (GXS C-Suite exec’s) had many alternatives – partnership, technology sharing, etc. – but chose the absolute laziest path to harming a competitor…..arbitraging the interconnect to TGMS.)
To have faith, above all, in a vision(ary). The adoption curve of EDI Network control and trading partner management via APIAugust 1st, 2012
In the EDI Communications sector the large brand name incumbents have made a fine art of sitting on their laurels. But Todd Gould, President of Loren Data Corp, engineered and nurtured ECGridOS, the only EDI Network management API that has grown to over 150 well disciplined functions.
