EIDX does a tremendous job of providing a business forum for organizations in the High Tech Industry
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 26, 2008
The Open Applications Group (OAGi) and The Electronic Industry Data Exchange Group (EIDX) today announced they have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to collaborate on building standards for the High Tech Industry. In addition, The Open Applications Group is pleased to announce the general availability of Release 9.3 of OAGIS, which was recently optimized for the High Tech business processes called Order to Cash and Procure to Pay.
OAGIS Release 9.3, which uses UN/CEFACT core components technologies to improve cross industry interoperability, is the first release of OAGIS specifically tuned for High Tech and the first deliverable from the newly formed High Tech Council within the Open Applications Group.
Moving forward, the High Tech Council and their sponsored OAGIS Working Groups will be meeting in co-located facilities with the EIDX business meetings. This enables a specific focus and gathering point for high tech business people, while ensuring that the deliverables fit into the cross industry framework which is OAGIS.
"Intel is looking to the Open Application Group standards to enable off-the-shelf backend integration with our ERP applications," Said John Cartwright, Director of Business Network Integration for Intel (INTC) Corporation. "It takes too much time, resources and costs too much to create the custom code needed today for integration. This is the primary reason for much of the manual processing (both internal & external) we have today."
"EIDX does a tremendous job of providing a business forum for organizations in the High Tech Industry," said David Connelly, CEO of the Open Applications Group. "This agreement enables our standards development efforts to engage directly with vertical industries like High Tech, while continuing to pursue a standards solution that ensures cross industry interoperability."
"The Open Applications Group is taking their innovative and successful standards work to a new level by collaborating with our EIDX initiative," said Robert Biddle, vice president, e-business and software solutions, CompTIA. "We have a long term relationship with OAGi and look forward to meeting or exceeding the standards needs of the high tech industry. This relationship will ensure that the voice of the high tech customer will be the driving force for high tech standards."
