DataChannel Turns the Internet Into XML-Enabled Platform

DataChannel this week announced the formalization of its XML Backbone Professional Services Practice, as well as a strategic alliance with Software Technologies Corp..

DataChannel will incorporate STC's e*Gate 4.0 as part of its XML Backbone to provide greater enterprise application integration and real-time transaction processing.

DataChannel's XML Backbone is a comprehensive platform for XML-based enterprise data and application integration, and is a core component of the DataChannel Enterprise Information Portal (EIP) Solutions framework. It provides a data exposure and integration services layer for the DataChannel EIP, which has the capacity to access any enterprise data and deliver that data using the DataChannel Server 4.0. DataChannel Server 4.0 provides a single point of secure, personalized access for any device via an intranet, extranet or the Internet.

In conjunction with Apache Software Foundation's announcement yesterday of the new Apache XML Project, DataChannel demonstrated its commitment to XML and its belief in the importance of open-standards and open-source by donating its DataChannel XPages to the XML.Apache.Org Open Source XML Tools Library. DataChannel XPages is an XML application markup language used to build data-driven, cross-platform Web applications that integrate disparate data sources.
