ebXML Message Service Adapter for Microsoft BizTalk Server certified by the Norwegian Center for Informatics in Health and Social Care
Capelle aan den Ijssel, The Netherlands, April 24, 2010 - ebXML (electronic business
using eXtenible Markup Language) is the B2B communication standard elected by
the Norwegian health and social care system to be the main mean of exchanging
medical and demographic data due to its reliable and secure way of delivering
messages. As BizTalk Server cannot work with the ebXML standard just by itself,
Covast, the gold certified, global B2B partner of Microsoft has designed the ebXML
Message Service Adapter which is currently the only Microsoft recommended and
sponsored solution for ebMS (ebXML Message Service) implementation.
The Norwegian Center for Informatics in Health and Social Care (KITH) has now
completed the interoperability and compatibility testing of the ebMS Adapter with
all the specifications and particular requirements of the healthcare messaging
system. Due to the favorable test results, the Covast solution for ebXML messaging
is now certified by KITH and it is recognized as the best way of implementing
ebXML communication with BizTalk Server for the Norwegian health and social care
Until now, many institutions have approached the ebXML messaging issue with external
solutions that required a complicated working manner and the use of extra resources.
There is no more need for such solutions as the ebMS Adapter has been designed
and built, at the request of Microsoft, as a combination of pipeline, configuration
and monitoring components perfectly integrated in BizTalk Server\'s architecture,
thus taking full advantage of the manageability and scalability of the BizTalk
Server platform and, in the same time, assuring an easy implementation. The ebMS
Adapter is compatible with both 2006 R2 and 2009 versions of BizTalk Server and,
as it is payload agnostic, it enables the messaging of different file formats.
Other functionalities, like the CPA/CPP editor and a database archiving function
have been added together with a brand new user friendly graphic interface in order
to improve the working experience.
"The KITH certification is yet another confirmation of the fact that the
ebMXL Messaging Service Adapter can comply and easily adapt to all the specific
requirements of different initiatives worldwide in which the ebXML standard is
used in a variety of ways. The certification also recognizes the potential and
the contribution the ebMS Adapter has on improving the healthcare information
and communication systems,&guot; - Daan Scheer, founder and CEO of Covast.
