5 Best Practices in Managed File Transfer

5 Best Practices in Managed File Transfer

Whether you are new to Managed File Transfer or you are working with an existing solution, this white paper released today from Flux is the starting point to ensure smooth file transfers. David Sims, president of Flux, a leading cross-platform workload automation and managed file transfer solution, regularly interacts with customers as well as Flux technical support and engineering teams. The industry veteran has compiled the five must-haves that every operation should put in place to create sound file transfer processes that require minimal human intervention.

An enormous amount of business-to-business file transfer traffic runs across enterprises worldwide and remains a critical component of enterprise architectures. Smooth transfers mean less IT operation hours and cost, fewer mistakes that can prove costly, and finally — a happy trading partner on the other end of the transaction.

Sims states, "With a good percentage of our customers, the same recommendations keep bubbling to the top and putting them in practice makes all the difference." He continued, "Managed file transfer should also be supported by simple workflow design models that allow operations to be efficiently integrated with other applications, databases, and systems. Our solution makes workflows quick to configure and easy to maintain."

The white paper covers key topics:

  • Confirmations
  • Failures and notifications
  • File verification
  • Best protocols to use for all parties involved
  • Date and timestamp file naming conventions
