In an alliance to integrate its product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions, EDS
, the Plano, Texas-based ASP, today announced it has selected New York-based SeeBeyond
to provide the strategic software integration technology.
The agreement will mean that e*Gate Integrator, SeeBeyond’s integration platform, will be embedded into EDS PLM software, to make its connectivity to third-party enterprise applications seamless.
EDS says the joint solution will allow it to offer integration solutions based on an open, distributed architecture, including support for web services, which will enable customers to leverage information in all phases of the product lifecycle.
“We are committed to open technology and open business relationships that will set the industry standard for product lifecycle management,” says Chuck Grindstaff, president, PLM Products, EDS PLM Solutions.
“We are ‘open by design’, and delivering open and scalable integration capabilities built on technology from a proven solution provider like SeeBeyond maps perfectly to that strategy,” he adds.
Says Jim Demetriades, founder, president and CEO of SeeBeyond: “Many Global 2000 manufacturers have recognized the value of real-time integration and have already standardized on the SeeBeyond integration platform. EDS acknowledged this success, and selected SeeBeyond to jointly provide added value to its supply chain clients.”
