Covast Offers Free Software for ebXML Message Service
Covast promotes increased standardization, security and performance in advanced B2B communications
Atlanta, Georgia - June 16, 2009 - In an effort to promote more standardized
and secure B2B communications across the internet, Covast today announced that
it will offer its ebXML Message Service Adapter for BizTalk Server as a free downloadable
package. With more than 10 months of successful deployments in organizations across
the globe, the Covast ebMS Adapter is the first Microsoft-sponsored development
of ebXML capabilities for BizTalk Server.
ebXML (Electronic Business using eXtensible Markup Language) offers more standardized,
secure B2B transactions than traditional XML-based communications, making it a
popular standard in the government, healthcare, manufacturing and energy sector.
Covast aims to promote the use of this standard along with the security and performance
provided by Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006 (R2) and 2009. During the first 30 days
after downloading the ebXML Message Service Adapter, clients will have access
to a full-service support desk. Once the 30 days is complete, licenses can be
kept at no cost excluding a small monthly fee for phone support and maintenance.
"More and more organizations are moving towards the ebXML standard. We want
to make the decision to use this standard a no-brainer, from both a technical
and purchasing perspective," said Daan Scheer, president, Covast.
The benefits of the Covast ebMS Adapter extend beyond security and standardization.
Because the adapter integrates ebXML capabilities into the Microsoft BizTalk
architecture, organizations are able to take full advantage of the manageability
and scalability of the platform. Additionally, critical tasks such as monitoring
and configuration can be completed using the BizTalk toolset already commonly
used by developers and operators.
