COMDAIS.COM GIVES CDXML TO THE INDUSTRY.
ComDais is making this standard available for free to the industry, like Ariba has done with cXML. "We are providing the specification with virtually the same license Ariba grants users of cXML. We believe that industry standards, based on working implementations, have proven the most valuable to us all. In order to help move the industry forward, ComDais is putting this easy to implement specification in the hands of its users. We respect and appreciate Ariba's leadership in the openness of cXML, which we believe has largely driven its terrific adoption. We are following in their footsteps in light of industry needs." ,said Jess Jessop, ComDais.com's CEO and CTO.
ComDais is forming cdXML.org, www.cdXML.org, an independent users group that will govern the future direction of the standard. This gives the industry a stable; independent standards based way to build market place applications.
cdXML allows software developers to interact with a single interface for both buy-side and sell-side functionality across multiple commerce platforms, rather than using a blend of standards and various proprietary interfaces used today to gain the full set of operations required to build today's advanced B2B market places.
cdXML is an API industry standard, like cXML but is focused on the buyer/market maker side. cdXML combined with cXML gives the market place application developer a comprehensive independent API set on which to base their projects. This enables market makers to avoid costly and time consuming reengineering with each upgrade of their platform.
cXML is the basis for supplier interfaces to the Ariba Supplier network. cdXML extends the ease of XML based standards to market place platforms. The combination of these specifications provides the full spectrum of functionality required by market place administrators and application developers.
ComDais provides a complete portable implementation of both these standards. The product is called e.InterfaceNow. e.InterfaceNow supports the full cXML 1.1 and cdXML 1.0 specifications and is available today for the Ariba Marketplace(R) platform. e.InterfaceNow provides both the buyer and supplier functionality that allows software development teams to access the full power of the underlying platforms. This includes:
User session management Enhanced product search Punchout and Punchin capability User administration and workflow Requisition management Product and catalog management Purchase order management Shipping and product delivery management
ComDais.com is building and managing a global B2B Internet market place for small business. The market place is based on the proven and robust Ariba platform. Partnered with top small business destination sites, content providers and technology innovators, ComDais.com is rapidly becoming the core of small business eCommerce.
