E-Commerce Providers Team Up

TIBCO Software Inc. brought its real-time integration to BroadVision Inc. Wednesday and the firms bundled products. Under the multi-year agreement, the companies will collaborate on marketing, product and business development, and sales activities on a worldwide basis.

Financial terms were not made public.

Based on the TIBCO ActiveEnterprise product suite, the BroadVision Integration Packs will be available with the One-To-One application to enable BroadVision customers to exchange business data across their e-commerce platforms.

Integration packs enable customers to establish a set of business principles to manage in real-time and numerous tasks such as synchronization of customer information, order fulfillment, inventory inquiry and catalog data updates.

In addition, the two companies agreed to work closely in the business-to-employees area to integrate BroadVision's InfoExchange application with TIBCO's ActivePortal product to enable personalization and data integration solutions for companies seeking to manage online relationships.

"To be a successful e-business, companies must have fully integrated software systems that communicate in real-time," said TIBCO Software Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Vivek Ranadive. "The co-developed TIBCO and BroadVision solution will give joint customers a key advantage with real-time information systems."
