eBT Integrates Engenda with BEA WebLogic Personalization Server

eBT Integrates Engenda with BEA WebLogic Personalization Server
2/26/01
eBT announced integration between eBT’s engenda content management solution and BEA WebLogic Personalization Server. The integration enables dynamic composition and delivery of highly personalized Web pages, based on XML content fragments stored within engenda. With the engenda and WebLogic Personalization Server integration, personalized Web pages can be constructed from many reusable XML fragments to provide a unique view of a site’s content. Additionally, the ability of WebLogic Personalization Server to leverage engenda’s rich metadata querying capabilities allows an application to pinpoint and deliver content fragments to a spe-cific user, based on their personalized profile. The enhanced integration goes beyond simple repository service by adding the ability for WebLogic Personalization Server to query content and retrieve fragments of documents from engenda’s content repository. These fragments can be used and reused to efficiently compile complete Web pages specific to the unique needs of each site visitor, without having to compose multiple versions of the same content. engenda will ship with the BEA WebLogic Personalization Server integration in version 4.7, available in March 2001. www.ebt.com

ebXML Integrates SOAP Into Messaging Services Specification

UN/CEFACT and OASIS announced efforts are now underway to integrate SOAP 1.1 and SOAP with Attachments specifications into the ebXML Messaging Specification. SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) is designed to provide the underpinnings for messaging requirements. This development by ebXML will result in an open, widely adopted global standard for reliably transporting electronic business messages over the Internet. The ebXML Messaging Specification encompasses a set of services and protocols that allow an electronic business client to request services from electronic business servers over any application-level transport protocol, including SMTP, HTTP and others. ebXML defines a general-purpose message, with a header that supports multiple payloads, while allowing digital signatures within and among related messages. Although the header is XML, the body of the message may be XML, MIME or virtually anything digital. www.ebXML.org, www.uncefact.org, www.oasis-open.org

Enigma Introduces 3C E-Commerce Platform

Enigma introduced its 3C Platform for content-driven e-commerce for the support chain. Through integrated content, commerce and collaboration capabilities, the Enigma 3C Platform enables manufacturers of capital equipment to capture a greater share of highly profitable aftermarket revenues and maintain better post-sale services and support relationships with customers. Equipment operators benefit by realizing greater efficiency in maintenance and operations and through product support, leading to improved equipment utilization and uptime. The 3C Platform allows OEMs; Operators; and Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) facilities to be linked via the Web and customer intranets. The original product content (intellectual property) continues to reside on the OEM’s extranet for aftermarket support and services, however customers can now establish many subsets of the OEM “master” site on intranets behind their firewalls. The customers can then integrate their own content, such as best practices or alternate procedures, to these sites, as well as aggregate other suppliers’ technical information into their intranets. With Enigma’s 3C Platform, the OEM’s Web site and the remote intranet sites can then be directly linked to ERP, e-procurement and order management systems to generate a complete support chain solution. The Enigma 3C Platform consists of the CommunitySight product for Collaboration, and two other sets of packaged solutions addressing Content and Commerce applications. InSight and DynaWeb are distributed content management applications, which automate the aggregation and delivery of multi-format, complex, structured documents. PartSight is Enigma’s dynamic catalog management application, which integrates multiple graphic formats with rich content. Enigma’s Xtend is a content and catalog management suite that allows equipment operators to modify OEM-supplied information for their own intranets. CommerceSight is the core commerce application in the Enigma 3C Platform, which links ERP, MRP, e-procurement and order management systems with the technical information customers need to make aftermarket purchasing decisions. The Enigma 3C Platform is available now. Pricing starts at $250,000. www.enigma.com
