"Today's SCE solutions must deliver long-term enterprise interoperability, and OAGIS is the XML standard of the future," said Nigel Davies, Catalyst senior vice president of products. "The reality is that, unless you conform to open XML standards, all you have are proprietary flat files. With OAGIS open standards, Catalyst products can now be easily integrated into our customers' ERP systems and business applications."
The Open Application Group (OAGi) is the world's largest publisher of XML-based standards for business software interoperability, which has been adopted by top Fortune 100 companies including Lockheed Martin, Lucent Technologies, IBM, Oracle, PeopleSoft, Ford, GM and Boeing as well as the US Air Force. This proven, flexible technology -- the only cross-industry XML standard - is simpler and less costly than other forms of XML. It recently has been selected by the automotive industry as the platform for building its business and collaboration processes.
"OAGIS open standards are the key to real-time information exchange across the enterprise, and consequently are fundamental to the enabling of the extended, adaptive supply chain," said David Connelly, president and CEO of OAGi. "Catalyst played a critical role on OAGi's original supply chain execution project team and is an active member of the logistics XML subgroup, which defines XML interoperability standards.
"We applaud its decision to adopt our standards for all its products and appreciate its counsel in helping us establish standards for the logistics and supply chain execution space."
