PureEdge Solutions Inc., a provider of automation for form-based business processes, has announced that its XML eforms are now available for integration with IBM Lotus Workplace 2.0 and IBM WebSphere Portal. Features include improved data sharing, enhanced collaboration capabilities, and rich client offline support that PureXML eforms bring to the Lotus Workplace environment. Lotus Workplace 2.0 contains IBM Workplace Client Technology that provides a foundation to create industry-specific, role-based Workplaces. Lotus Workplace adds collaborative capabilities on top of the data management and security with "no touch deployment" using centralized administration and on demand desktop provisioning.
PureEdge's open standards-based framework is intended to allow IBM users to streamline their business processes by integrating XML eforms-based processes with back-end systems, and expand their on-demand capabilities by bringing rich client to the forefront. Extended WebSphere Portal support is offered through PureEdge WebForm Server and the PureEdge Viewer, enabling XML-based forms with validation, formatting, layout, and offline capabilities. PureEdge forms-based business process solutions are founded on industry and technology-specific open standards, including XML, Web Services, and Java, enabling and simplifying interoperability and integration between systems, allowing organizations to leverage existing applications, data models, and resources.
