EDI is described as the interchange of structured data according to agreed message standards between computer systems, by electronic means. Structured data equates to a simple and direct method of presenting the data content of a document. The method of ensuring the correct interpretation of the information by the computer system is defined by the EDI standard."

EDI is a technique used to communicate business transactions between computer systems of different companies and organizations. Note that sometimes the EDI mechanism deployed at a company is often used to interface to other systems within the same organization."

The difference between ALE and EDI process flows occurs at the communication level. The EDI process transmits IDocs to an EDI subsystem using flat file format. The ALE process transmits IDocs to an SAP system via memory, using asynchronous communication.
