NetPace launched an integrated B2B platform, enabling business-to-business commerce across industries. NetPace’s B2B Framework Server (NFS) at is a complete XML-based, platform independent process for supply chain management automation. As part of the B2B NFS, NetPace has also released a working prototype demonstrating a typical supply chain process in the automotive industry. Contrary to traditional applications that use Web Server-specific solutions for data exchange over the Web, this framework uses XML as its native data format. The XML framework allows the application to run on any available platform and allows integration with the existing ERP solutions such as Oracle, PeopleSoft, SAP, and others. B2B NFS is open enough to be implemented in virtually all types of industries. The prototype simulates a real world scenario and demonstrates how NFS can help trading partners to leverage the Internet, increasing business efficiency.
