ERP-Link believes strongly in server-based computing for provisioning platform interoperability
Portland, OR (PRWEB) March 31, 2008
ERP-Link Corp., a leading provider of interoperability and process optimization solutions, today announced that iNet.DM, a core component of its iNet Business Optimization Platform for SAP, is the first Microsoft ECM interoperability solution for SAP to earn Windows Server 2008 software certification. ERP-Link's iNet.DM helps SAP customers maximize the returns on their back office ERP systems by greatly extending their document management capabilities and re-energizing their document-centric business processes with the full power of SharePoint Foundation Technologies. SharePoint ECM delivers a legal document archive recognized by the U.S. Department of Defense to centralize and manage content repository services, for both SAP and other line of business systems throughout the enterprise. It augments SAP document processes with its powerful search facilities, embedded workflows and integrated collaboration.
"We're very pleased that ERP-Link has certified a document and records management system that leverages Office SharePoint Server along with the enhanced security and high availability of Windows Server 2008." said Steve Bell, Senior Product Manager in Windows Server Marketing at Microsoft. "The iNet solution also provides a strong proof point that will help to accelerate the deployment of SAP solutions on Windows Server 2008."
"ERP-Link believes strongly in server-based computing for provisioning platform interoperability," says M. Nick Allen, Director of Marketing and Communications at ERP-Link. "Stepping dramatically away from traditional middleware approaches, our iNet solution runs as modular and scalable platform services under Windows Server. The increased security, performance and manageability of Windows Server 2008 helps ensure the trust of SAP customers in adopting Microsoft-centric solutions for extending their SAP systems. Our certification for Windows Server 2008 will help us and our partners around the globe deploy our interoperability solutions with confidence, allowing SAP customers to leverage Microsoft platforms, technologies and products as a powerful, scalable and cost-effective upgrade path for sophisticated enterprise functionality."
Windows Server 2008 software certification ensures software performance in a 64-bit environment while applying approximately 100 test cases that independently confirm an application's compliance with best practices for compatibility, security, reliability, and availability on the new platform. The certification identifies top-performing technologies that are ready to deploy in mission-critical environments. As a participant in the Microsoft Early Access Program (EAP) for Windows Server 2008 Software Certification, ERP-Link's iNet.DM is one of more than 300 applications that are eligible for certification on a pre-release version of the new platform.
