Viewlocity Releases XML Connector

Viewlocity this week released XML Connector, a product designed to provide easy access to and open exchange of business messages.

XML Connector will enable enterprises to take full advantage of Web-based collaboration opportunities and form dynamic trading communities, according to a statement issued yesterday by Viewlocity. The product will help customers leverage their existing investments in EDI while migrating them to XML. It will also allow Viewlocity to leverage its leadership in providing business-to-business connectivity across complex supply chains.

Viewlocity products leverage XML to provide flexible support for the diverse variety of information (e.g., orders, product design information, forecasts and production schedules) and key capabilities, like graphical tools to edit and view business objects, shared among trading partners.

Viewlocity also offers its Connector Development Platform development for customers, partners and system integrators to develop a variety of connectors to meet specific application requirements. Connector Development Platform was created from the development framework of Viewlocity's flagship product, AMTrix. It is a tool used for rapid, reliable integration between applications, supply chain packages, legacy systems and trading partner systems. Connector Development Platform also integrates multiple hardware databases and communications environments.

AMTrix claims more than 3,200 installations worldwide.

Viewlocity is a global leader in providing supply chain integration and synchronization for e-business. The company is funded by Frontec, a leading European IT firm, and Battery Ventures, a Massachusetts-based venture capital firm. Viewlocity markets its products and services in more than 50 countries through its direct sales organization and a global network of integration partners.
