New WebSphere Business Integration Software Enables Customers to Integrate Business Processes Across the Enterprise

(March 5, 2003) - IBM's latest additions to its WebSphere Business Integration portfolio provide businesses with a broad set of functions necessary to integrate, manage, and monitor business processes across an enterprise and with trading partners. IBM's new WebSphere Business Integration software enables customers to simulate how business processes will flow across a value chain; to integrate those processes across "silos" of custom and packaged applications found in many businesses today; to connect these processes with suppliers and customers; to monitor the processes, and to manage business performance.

This type of end-to-end - or horizontal - integration helps companies respond faster to customer needs; adapt faster to changes in supply and demand; and more flexibly handle the variety of on-the-fly changes typical in business today. By helping businesses with these issues, WebSphere Business Integration software is central to helping customers become on-demand e-businesses.
