IBM TO OFFER CYCLONE COMMERCE B2B CONNECTIVITY PLATFORM.

Cyclone Commerce, Inc. announces that IBM will offer the Cyclone Interchange platform to its customers. Because the Cyclone Interchange platform provides Internet connectivity for B2B systems, including EDI and proprietary systems, IBM customers can create "Instant-On Commerce Connections" between their trading partners, without deploying proprietary software at every end point in their trading community.

IBM plans to offer Cyclone Interchange to customers that require open connectivity between various types of eBusiness applications, as well as all IBM hardware and legacy systems. Deploying Cyclone Interchange will allow electronic marketplaces and B2B business sites to quickly deploy connections to a large number of suppliers, providers and exchanges, increasing the breadth of their trading networks.

"Cyclone's technology is used in a number of industries for Internet-based data exchange," said Piero Chiodo, director of Global B2B Hosting Services, IBM Global Services. "It will help IBM's customers increase the scope of business transactions they can handle quickly and cost effectively on the Web."

"Cyclone's technology will rapidly expand the size of Internet-based trading networks, joining companies of all sizes on a shared platform," said Phil Myers, president and COO of Scottsdale, Ariz.-based Cyclone Commerce, Inc. "We've engineered an instant-on B2B solution that's able to communicate with any existing e-commerce or legacy software. The selection by IBM says a lot about Cyclone's capabilities."

Cyclone Interchange uses a transparent, Java-based architecture to create seamless communications bridges between trading partners and supports a wide array of disparate security, communications and data protocols. The platform helps enterprises create eBusiness infrastructures where partnerships can be quickly formed and scaled to achieve efficiencies based on market demands. Cyclone Interchange now supports all IBM hardware and software, including AS400, RS/6000, Netfinity and System 390 servers, as well as DB2 and MQ Series databases.
