The new adapter, available immediately from SEEBURGER, is designed for organizations that are adopting the ebMS communications protocolneutral method for exchanging electronic business messages.

SEEBURGER has already delivered the solution for its customers in the automotive industry and in the agro-chemical industry.

The Mosaic Company, one of the world’s leading producers and marketers of concentrated phosphate and potash crop nutrients for the global agriculture industry, has selected SEEBURGER’s ebXML HTTP Adapter for SAP NetWeaver PI as the tool to exchange messages with key agricultural manufacturers and distributors as part of the Crop Nutrition Connectivity (CNC) project.

“ebXML and its ebMS message transport protocol are emerging as a potentially important force in e-business, so it was imperative that we support ebMS to ensure that we can continue to meet all of our customers’ EDI and B2B needs,” said Bill Reeves, Vice President of Strategy and Marketing, SEEBURGER Inc.

Other consortiums that are moving to the ebMS specification for message transport include papiNET, a group dedicated to establishing and maintaining global electronic business transaction standards for the paper and forest industry, and RosettaNet, the consortium dedicated to the development and deployment of e-business standards for the IT industry.
