Sybase extends NEON
- By John K. Waters
Sybase unveiled new versions of its New Era of Networks adapters for Siebel, PeopleSoft and SAP R/3 applications. These upgraded adapters are prepackaged solutions designed to work with specific off-the-shelf applications and standards.
Sybase acquired application integration vendor, New Era of Networks in April 2001. The New Era of Networks e-Biz Integrator, used in combination with New Era of Networks adapters, enable users to streamline the flow of information with a "no-code" approach to integration. The adapters automate the real-time discovery and population of interface definitions, including application customization.
The Sybase adapters work with IBM's MQSeries Integrator and WebSphere Integrator to predefine integration formats into customized application installations. This technology allows PeopleSoft, SAP and Siebel specialists to implement new packaged applications within existing environments by using the most common APIs.
New Era of Networks Adapters for Siebel and PeopleSoft are available immediately. The New Era of Networks Adapter for SAP R/3 will be available soon. For additional information on New Era of Networks Adapters visit the Sybase Web site at http://www.sybase.com/products/neweraofnetworks/adapters.
