Case Study for B-2-B Integration
Rusmin Dirgantoro - Skysoft Corporation
To compete in today's global economy, companies must extend their business processes beyond their enterprises to seamlessly collaborate with their business partners. This requires a complete integration of complex business processes and enterprise applications across multiple organizations in the value chain. A Business-to-business (B2B) Integrator manages the delivery, translation, processing, and security of business transactions and documents. It yields interoperability, flexibility and scalability over the Internet using open standards such as EDI and XML-based RosettaNet, xCBL, and ebXML.
Globalization of a B2B Integration Technology encompasses a wide range of internationalization, localization, testing, and customization issues. The challenges of the project include incompatibility of subsystems, character encoding, and data formats, interoperability across enterprise applications with different internationalization designs, internationalization issues on Internet programming, barriers from supporting technologies, logistic issues with development and testing infrastructure, custom deployment scenarios, and fast changing requirements; among others.
CIO's, development managers, QA managers, IT managers, Professional Services Organization managers, especially those who are involved in B2B Integration, will benefit from discussing the experiences gained from this real-life project. Deeper technical discussion will be entertained during Q&A session.
