Companies help B2B customers connect to virtually
any type of data, system, application or platform

ATLANTA – March 13, 2002 – iWay Software, an Information Builders company that accelerates e-business integration, and Covast Corporation, provider of integration broker software that enables connectivity in weeks or even days, today announced a strategic alliance to improve data exchange for B2B commerce. Covast will use the iWay Software Enterprise Adapter Suite to extend its transformation capabilities and help customers connect virtually any type of data, system, application or platform.

Covast eCommunity Builder is designed for businesses with complex B2B integration challenges and simplifies the transformation and sharing of information with customers, supply chains and internal systems. The combination of eCommunity Builder and iWay Software makes it easy for customers to connect front-office applications to Web services, and back-office applications to partners and suppliers. iWay Software provides more than 140 adapters on more than 35 different platforms.

“iWay’s extensive knowledge of packaged applications and legacy platforms is the key reason we decided to forge this relationship,” said Jim Norton, executive vice president and general manager of Covast Corporation. “Its adapter software eliminates nearly all of the custom coding required when integrating these systems. Now our customers can quickly and seamlessly integrate their trading communities directly with their back-end systems. The combination of Covast and iWay’s solutions represent a comprehensive, best-in-breed option for companies looking for a rapid and inexpensive way to participate in true collaborative commerce with their business partners.”

“Covast has great technology for integrating information systems quickly and cost-effectively, especially in the complex B2B and EDI arena,” said John Senor, President of iWay Software. “iWay reduces the time and cost of integration in complex back-office environments, so between the two companies integration can happen faster than ever before. We’re very happy to be a part of the Covast team.”
