WILTON, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 27, 2000
Support for IBM WebSphere Software Platform by Mercator Web Integrator
Enables Use of Enterprise Business Logic and Data Across
Customer-facing Web Applications
Mercator Software(R), Inc. (Nasdaq: MCTR), the e-business transformation company(TM), today announced support for the IBM WebSphere(a) software platform with its new Mercator Web Integrator (See "Mercator Announces Industry's First Open Web Integration Solution," 6/27/2000). Support for the IBM WebSphere software platform server is the newest component of the Mercator strategy to extend the benefits of its market-leading integration broker technology to leading Web platforms and will be available in Q3 2000.
"Mercator's support for the IBM WebSphere software platform is further evidence of the industry's acceptance of WebSphere as a primary technology to enable customers to accelerate e-business application development and deployment," said Paraic Sweeney, vice president, Business Transformation, IBM. "Customers need open and standards-based foundations for Web-enabling e-business transformation scenarios that address business-to-business (B2B), consumer-to-business (C2B) and business-to-employee (B2E) information processing requirements. IBM offers industry leading integration broker technology with MQSeries Integrator (MQSI) as part of the MQSeries family, and this initiative by Mercator is complementary and provides customers with further options for e-business integration solutions."
Businesses will be able to leverage the Mercator technology's powerful data and business process transformation capabilities with the IBM WebSphere Application Server. Using Mercator Web Integrator, Web application developers will have seamless access to Mercator e-business transformation scenarios, which will be encapsulated as Enterprise Java Beans (EJBs) or Java Servlets and deployed on the IBM WebSphere software platform. This capability provides value to enterprise customers and net market makers that need to expose automated procurement, enterprise resource planning, supply chain management and trading partner management facilities to customer-facing Web applications.
"IBM WebSphere has gained tremendous popularity in the market as an e-business software and application services foundation," said Dave Power, VP of marketing, Mercator. "Our relationship with IBM will enable our joint customers to address the Web integration challenges associated with e-business transformation. Now, our customers can more easily extend enterprise business processes and data to next-generation e-business applications, helping them to realize new efficiencies, and support new revenue and customer service opportunities."
