Harbinger Corporation announced expansive new corporate-wide initiatives that bring XML to the forefront of its Internet E-Commerce strategy. First, Harbinger will launch an on-network XML translation service via its E-Commerce portal along with an online XML document repository that is being developed by Harbinger for its EC Resource Center (www.harbinger.net). Harbinger also plans to support XML in future releases of its suite of TrustedLink translation software. Finally, Harbinger announced that it has formed an alliance with OnDisplay, an e-business technology leader, to integrate their state-of-the-art XML products into certain of Harbinger’s products. In conjunction with these initiatives, Harbinger is working with international non-profit organizations, including UN/CEFACT and OASIS, to standardize XML business specifications and is supporting other collective efforts such as the Microsoft BizTalk Framework to drive the adoption of XML in Electronic Commerce. Harbinger plans to roll out an on-network XML translation service this December that will be available to customers using harbinger.net. The service, which automatically translates EDI documents to/from XML and will process native XML transactions as well, promises to facilitate translation and mapping in Internet electronic trading, while helping companies speed the implementation of new E-Commerce applications. The on-network service is currently in limited production tests. Harbinger also announced as part of its XML initiatives that it has entered into a significant alliance with OnDisplay. Through the relationship, Harbinger will incorporate OnDisplay’s e-business technology within its overall XML strategy, as well as within its data rationalization and content management offerings through Harbinger’s Catalog Solutions Division. The relationship additionally includes joint marketing and delivery of catalog content solutions by the companies. www.ondisplay.com. www.harbinger.net.
