Peregrine and Extricity B2B Offering to Maximize

ON Semiconductor Trading Partnerships



Gartner - Internet & e-Business Conference & Expo



Apr 03, 2001, 01:00 ET from Peregrine Systems, Inc.

    NEW YORK, April 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Peregrine Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:   PRGN)
 today announced a multi-year application service provider (ASP) agreement to
 provide ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq:   ONNN) with a solution to launch a process-
 based, collaborative commerce model across its worldwide trading community.
 ON Semiconductor is a global supplier of broadband and power-management
 Integrated Circuits (ICs) and standard semiconductors.
     This agreement comes less than a month after Peregrine's announcement that
 it will acquire Extricity, Inc. in a move that further extends its B2B
 relationship management solutions across the value chain for large enterprise
 customers.  ON Semiconductor, which is among the first to take advantage of
 the combined Peregrine and Extricity vision, is pursuing a comprehensive B2B
 relationship management solution that supports real-time, process-based
 collaboration.  As a result, ON Semiconductor and its 400 trading partners
 will be able to easily integrate their business processes to work together in
 an automated, intelligent and collaborative trading community.
     According to David Hope-Ross, analyst with Gartner, Inc., "Strong economic
 incentives and the transition to less linear supply chains are driving
 enterprises toward collaboration with key trading partners.  This requires
 management of business processes throughout entire trading communities and
 technical integration beyond batch structured document exchange."
     Peregrine provides a range of hosted software and services that will
 enable collaborative workflow, process management and connectivity options to
 all ON Semiconductor value chain participants.  Hosted on Get2Connect(SM),
 Peregrine's e-Business portal, ON Semiconductor's solution will include real-
 time data transformation (encompassing a multitude of data standards including
 EDI, XML and RosettaNet).  Peregrine's and Extricity's combined RosettaNet
 capabilities were a key factor in ON Semiconductor's selection.  Additionally,
 ON Semiconductor is contracting for Peregrine's full range of value-added
 services, including transaction reporting, data mining and analytics, and
 collaborative supply chain management.
     "ON Semiconductor is committed to being among the easiest of suppliers to
 do business with in the electronics industry," said Colum O'Neill, director of
 e-Business at ON Semiconductor.  "Much of our recent effort has been in
 optimizing and making more efficient our operating processes, and we are now
 in a position to take full advantage of the comprehensive suite of
 connectivity and management services supported by Peregrine's ASP and to
 integrate our processes directly with those of our customers and suppliers."
     "Managing a value network to build stronger business relationships between
 buyers, suppliers and marketplaces is a critical success factor for our
 enterprise customers," said Louis Blatt, senior vice president and general
 manager of Peregrine E-Markets Group.  "When this proposition extends to all
 participants in a value network, true ROI can be realized on a community-wide
 basis."
