Drummond Certified™ Program Announces 6 Software Products Certified for Global ebXML Interoperability

AUSTIN, TX—Jan. 15, 2008—Drummond Group Inc. (DGI), the leading B2B interoperability certification company, today announced that six software products from six companies successfully completed the Drummond Certified™ program’s ebMS (ebXML Message Service)-4Q07 interoperability testing.

Companies demonstrating interoperability among their products in the ebMS-4Q07 test round included Axway, Cleo Communications, Generix Group, IBM, Inovis, and TIBCO Software Inc.

ebMS is the messaging layer of the ebXML framework.  This test included a new optional test that validated using the DSA with SHA-1 algorithm for digitally signing ebMS messages over both HTTP and HTTPS. In previous testing rounds only the RSA with SHA1 algorithm had been tested.  ebMS continues to grow in global adoption and current industries include automotive, financial services, government and healthcare.

“Certified interoperability means that these leading edge products have been stringently tested and as a group have successfully performed all test cases without error.  Why is this important to the buyer?  Certified interoperable software saves time, money and frustration of getting commercial software products working over the internet with other products out of the box.” said Rik Drummond, DGI’s chief executive officer. “I congratulate each company on their hard work and commitment to testing with their competitors to better serve their customers with interoperable software.”
