WebXi Unveils Suite

WebXi Inc. Thursday unveiled its Symmetry Xchange integration suite.

SymmetryXi, a B2B integration solution that integrates corporate data sources and legacy systems using a scaleable, flexible open standards architecture.

SymmetryXi is billed as "an ideal solution for portals and application server vendors," and as such, provides commercial-grade XML messaging for the emerging XML-based e-markets and trading exchanges. WebXi believes that OEMs using SymmetryXi are able to gain significant time-to-market benefits for their XML-based applications.

SymmetryXi enables companies to seamlessly integrate the business processes of their customers, suppliers and distributors, at the same time reducing development and implementation costs and decreasing the time-to-market for their products and services.

Bill Sullivan, president and co-founder of WebXi, Inc., believes that his company's approach to XML messaging has several advantages over others.

"Our component-based architectural approach...allows individual components to be used in a modular fashion so that OEMs can choose from a variety of functions." The product is also extensible, he continues, saying that it "allows new standards to be quickly and easily incorporated into existing products, eliminating the need for `forklift upgrades' as XML standards continue to evolve. This allows companies to confidently deploy XML systems, knowing that future innovations have been provisioned."

The product is actually a Java-based solution that utilizes XML technology as a backbone for the deliver of a scaleable B2B integration solution. SymmetryXi provides developers with a flexible architecture that uses XML adapters, and additionally provides a software development kit for the creation of custom XML adapters which allow for the integration of in-house systems and the incorporation of emerging standards.
