DEC TAKES ELECTRONIC DATA INTERCHANGE SOFTWARE TO WIDER RANGE OF OPERATING SYSTEMS, ADDS FRONT-END

By CBR Staff Writer

Digital Equipment Corp, Maynard, Massachusetts, has released version 3.0 of its DEC/EDI software for Electronic Data Interchange business process re-engineering and business process automation. It now includes support for Digital Unix servers, as well as Alpha and VAX systems running OpenVMS. Release 3.0 also supports application clients running under OpenVMS, HP-UX, AIX, MVS CICS, MVS-Batch and VSE-CICS. Future versions of DEC/EDI will be enhanced to run on other Unix systems, as there has been some interest in the HP-UX and AIX versions, according to Wayne Toye, Electronic Data Interchange marketing manager. Most of DEC’s Data Interchange users are in the health care sectors, retail and wholesale consumer packaged goods industries, and with the US government and its contractors. DEC has also developed a graphical user interface front end for DEC/EDI called CommandCenter, which enables Data Interchange administrators to create and maintain DEC/EDI system information via configuration and monitoring functions from a Windows graphical user interface. Among other applications, administrators can register remote and local application clients and their business applications, create and edit Electronic Data Interchange messages and transactions, and format data both sent and received. DEC/EDI costs $9,000 to $20,000 depending on system size and user licensing, and CommandCenter is sold separately at $2,500.
