Building on its service bureau operations and legacy gateway products for competitive service providers, DSET Corp. (Booth 719) has launched an enhanced gateway applications product suite that electronically bridges the CRM and order management systems of different trading partners.
The applications are capable of handling access and local services, special services that include E911, calling card, caller ID and long-distance, and number portability solutions. They are based on databases from players such as Oracle Corp. and server platforms such as Solaris and Linux. The underlying architecture is a J2EE-compliant framework that has been in operation for more than seven years; the applications have been designed for scalability and built using open-source industry standard tools such as Weblogic and Eclipse.
They also have several trading partner interfaces that handle specific deviations and take care of change management. The applications have the ability to transact business using different protocols CORBA, EDI, Mech Specs and SOAP/XML.
A number of transport mechanisms are supported, including FTP/PFTP, NDM and Interactive Agent. Most applications offer upstream interfaces to send and receive data from CRM and order management systems, as well as a standard Web services interface.
