FOSTER CITY, Calif., Nov. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- E2open (NASDAQ: EOPN), the leading provider of cloud-based solutions for collaborative planning and execution across global trading networks, will be participating in the 2014 Open Applications Group (OAGi) Plenary Meeting, which takes place on Thursday, November 13, in Redwood City, California. Hosted by Oracle, the OAGi meeting will feature a session titled, "Cross-Industry Use Cases for OAGIS in the Cloud," with Ian Hedges, Vice President, Platform at E2open, which will be held from 2 - 2:30 p.m. (PT). During this session, Hedges will highlight recent customer integration use cases leveraging the OAGi Specification (OAGIS).
For many businesses, connecting trading partners is both expensive and time-consuming due to the vast scope of mapping data and transactions between companies for mission-critical processes. To address this issue, E2open's library of productized maps are deployed to speed data transformation across industry standards, such as X12, EDIFACT, RosettaNet, Chem eStandards, OAGIS and others. E2open also provides proprietary connectors to tap into customers' ERP and TMS systems, providing them with unparalleled open, cross-industry and cross-standard interoperability. These reusable canonicals and map assets, coupled with the web-based user interface of the E2 Cloud Connectivity solution, allow the E2open onboarding team, or any of the company's certified systems integrator partners, to rapidly implement comprehensive supply chain business-to-business (B2B) integration projects.
"Traditional approaches to implementing and supporting connectivity can be costly and inefficient," said Hedges. "At E2open, we are committed to helping our customers overcome these barriers by providing a seamless connectivity experience through our network. Our focus is to provide turnkey integration with ready-to-go maps through cross-industry OAGIS canonicals that can rapidly enable complex, end-to-end, integrated business processes. With this unparalleled ease of connectivity, companies can turn their attention toward better serving their customers, as opposed to time- and labor-intensive IT implementations."
Founded in 1994, the OAGi is the only truly cross-industry business network integration standard committed to building open standards for mobile, cloud, B2B, application-to-application (A2A), and enterprise interoperability. The 2014 OAGi Meeting will be held at the Oracle Conference Center located at 350 Oracle Parkway in Redwood City, California. There is no cost for OAGi members to attend, and the fee for non-members is $325. Those interested in attending this event can register for the meeting here.
