JustSystems announced that it has successfully completed testing of xfy (pronounced ‘x-fye’), its document-based composite application for the IBM Retail Integration Framework. xfy serves as a management interface, providing retailers optimal management and decision support through real-time views of data in underlying applications and repositories. xfy Helps IBM Deliver Real-Time Visualization of SOA IBM Retail Integration Framework utilizes open standards, including Association for Retail Technology Standards (ARTS), Open Application Group Integration (OAGIS) and Global Standards (GS1), to unlock communications between services, information sources, and business processes, making the store and the retail enterprise one seamless landscape rather than disconnected islands. xfy, among the first solutions to take advantage of IBM’s DB2 pureXML, unifies and processes data from multiple sources within a simple and intuitive document interface. The Retail Integration Framework initiative brings together platform- independent software vendors that deliver proven solutions designed and built for the retail industry. Through this initiative, IBM works with select IBM Business Partners to validate solutions that meet a rigorous assessment of next-generation, open-standards-based store environments. xfy provides an end-user interface that unifies and processes data from multiple sources into a clear, contextually-rich document interface. xfy connects directly to the native information sources that drive the retail environment, allowing the data processing to be done within the document itself and providing a real- time view of information. http://www.justsystems.com/
