B2B – Business to Business Integration Software

B2B (Business to Business) describes any business that sells products or provides services to another business. Business to Business integration software enables companies to manage the integration and automation of business processes with key suppliers, partners, and customers via the Internet. It does this by allowing new and existing information systems to communicate with each other in a common language and framework. iWay Software supports B2B integration initiatives through a network of connectors and adapters as well as through the universal language of XML.

Connectors transport application requests through the iWay infrastructure where they are routed to adapters, transformed, and optimized for the desired data source. Adapters then return the requested information to the appropriate connector that hands it back over to the requesting application. Using this method, iWay connectors enable virtually any application to reach enterprise transaction systems, procedures, application packages, and data in more than 300 relational, nonrelational, ERP, and proprietary sources on over 35 platforms.

iWay Service Manager provides a simple, cost-effective XML framework that ties this all together. For more complex B2B implementations, iWay provides native support for application servers and integration brokers from such vendors as IBM, Microsoft, and BEA.
