E2open Achieves Drummond Certification in Fall 2013 Interoperability Test Event

E2open (NASDAQ:EOPN), the leading provider of cloud-based solutions for collaborative planning and execution across global trading networks, has been Drummond Certified™ in the AS2‐3Q13 automated interoperability test event. Drummond Group Inc., the trusted interoperability test lab, named E2open’s solution as one of 21 newly certified AS2-3Q13 products. E2open participated in this vendor‐neutral test event held across multiple time zones over the last several weeks.

“Certified software applications draw attention to the importance of interoperability needed to support the world’s supply chain in a variety of industries,” said Rik Drummond, CEO of Drummond Group. “We commend these organizations for their united efforts to meet mutual goals of driving global interoperability with the continuous adoption of technical standards such as AS2.”

Applicability Statement 2 (AS2) is one of the most widely recognized messaging standards for business-to-business (B2B) e‐commerce with thousands of implementations worldwide. AS2 is broadly adopted among the world’s major retailers and manufacturers, and is one of many standards built into the foundation of the E2open Business Network. By removing the obstacles to collaboration, and allowing for the exchange of data in an easy, secure and reliable manner, the E2open Business Network enables broader visibility and the rapid on-boarding of global trading partners.

“Today’s leading organizations increasingly depend on B2B integration solutions to ensure real-time collaboration across their global supply chain networks and to digitally connect to their trading partners,” said Stephan Hofmann, Vice President Product Management, E2open. “At E2open, we’re committed to maintaining superior interoperability and are proud to have earned the Drummond Certified™ seal signifying our promise to put the flexibility and control of managing supply chain information back in the hands of our customers.”

The Drummond Certified™ program provides numerous industries with a wide selection of software tested for compliance and interoperability that offers leading product features in a variety of prices. Drummond Group's testing automation tool, InSitu®, allows the tester to automate the execution and evaluation of the test cases used for interoperability testing, including sending and receiving AS2 messaging. This provides testers with more time to focus on solving any interoperability issues. A complete list of the newly certified AS2‐3Q13 products and registration information for upcoming tests can be found here.

More than 37,000 trading partners and 117,000 unique registered users currently participate in the E2open Business Network, which allows participants to access and share data and execute business processes in a secure, real-time manner.
