SEEBURGER Offers Rapid Migration Framework for Sterling B2B Customers, Including Free $15,000 Move2Production Package
Facilitates EDI/B2B Upgrades Following IBM’s Acquisition of Sterling Commerce
ATLANTA, GA, July 13, 2010 – SEEBURGER Inc. today announced a rapid migration package – including a free message activation tool that normally sells for $15,000 or more – for North American organizations considering replacing Sterling Commerce’s Gentran or other Sterling B2B gateways in the wake of IBM’s planned acquisition of Sterling from AT&T. The package significantly shortens migration time to SEEBURGER’s Business Integration Server (BIS), one of the most advanced and widely adopted platforms for collaborative commerce, EDI/B2B communication and other business integration functions.
Already used in multiple successful migrations, the rapid migration framework accelerates SEEBURGER BIS deployments by providing features such as pre-defined workflows, automatic transfer of custom message layouts, automated old/new file comparison, and automated master data migration from legacy platforms into the BIS environment. These tools significantly reduce deployment costs and help speed the process of realizing the benefits of supply chain collaboration.
In addition, SEEBURGER offers rapid point-and-click testing of new EDI/B2B messages through an online portal, plus a Move2Production package that puts successful tested messages into production without the time, expense and error risk of rekeying all information. Move2Production, a BIS add-on starting at $15,000, will be free for Sterling customers who sign up to migrate to the BIS platform through October 15, 2010.
Sterling customers taking advantage of the offer will also gain access to advanced SEEBURGER functionality ranging from easy message tracking by business users, to a one-platform architecture that ensures compatibility of all components and adapters, to automated document exchange for non-EDI-enabled customers and suppliers via e-mail, spoke units and partner portals. SEEBURGER BIS and related products are available as a software license, under the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model, or as a service deployed and managed by SEEBURGER.
“There are hundreds of enterprises running older Sterling Gentran technology that offers limited functionality and that many believe IBM will sunset. Even upgrading to a newer Sterling gateway will require a major migration project with new message maps, so many of these organizations will be reevaluating their B2B integration strategy from the ground up,” said SEEBURGER Vice President Bill Metallo. “Our rapid migration framework offers an easy transition to a market-leading platform with a clearly defined roadmap for support for many years to come.”
