Sequoia Software Corporation announced an alliance with STC. Sequoia will leverage the STC e*Xchange eBusiness Integration Suite to enhance the connectivity of its XML-pure portal server, XPS. With this expanded integration capability, Sequoia can provide customers rapid connectivity to many enterprise and e-business applications from leading vendors including SAP, PeopleSoft, Siebel Systems, Oracle, Sybase, Lotus Notes, Onyx, Clarify, and BroadVision. Sequoia XPS functions as an e-business command center, interconnecting an organization’s various islands of information and processes, often with those of its customers, partners and suppliers, through a universal Web-based interface. Many of these islands are “enterprise applications” that support corporate manufacturing, financials, customer service or administrative functions. The STC eBusiness integration platform provides Sequoia customers with efficient solutions for tightly integrating XPS with their enterprise applications, eliminating the need for custom built connections, which can become costly to develop and maintain.,
