DynamicWeb Enterprises Offers EDI Year 2000 Solution

DynamicWeb Enterprises Inc., a developer
of Internet and EDI electronic commerce business solutions, released new, Year
2000 compliant data formats for the company’s e-commerce managed services
suite, EDIxchange.

The release of the Fairfield, NJ-based company’s new data formats precedes
the implementation date of the ANSI X12 EDI standards, Version 4010, which
also will support Year 2000 requirements.

“Given the pressures of making core systems Year 2000-compliant, DynamicWeb’s
positioning as an outsourcer is very attractive with the Year 2000 Sword of
Damocles poised over many organizations,” said David Alschuler, director of
electronic commerce research for the Aberdeen Group.

“Aberdeen believes that many organizations will need to outsource
specialized applications which compete for limited internal resources. The
skills required to make these capabilities function are limited or
non-existent in most companies.”

EDIxchange’s e-commerce managed services are designed to help businesses
replace paper procurement processes with a faster electronic process that
costs less than an in-house EDI system.

DynamicWeb’s services manage the EC requirements of the supply chain
allowing both the buyer and supplier to electronically trade business
documents using their own data formats and preferred delivery
method–including Value-Added Networks (VANs), the Internet, or custom

“Since the latest available EDI X12 implementation is not Year 2000 compliant,
every single EDI pipe currently using this standard is not yet Year 2000
compliant,” said Jim Conners, President and Chief Operating Officer of
DynamicWeb Enterprises.

“By incorporating these new data formats in our services now, DynamicWeb is
able to offer businesses a method for upgrading their EDI pipes to be Year
2000 compliant without waiting for the implementation of 4010 EDI standards.”
