Intershop Communications Inc, the East German E-mall company that moved to Burlingame, California at the end of last year, has now set up shop in the UK. It is the most vibrant market after the US for internet related business, said company founder Stephan Schambach. Intershop will target UK telecommunications firms, internet service providers and new media companies with its Intershop Mall product, which enables service providers to host multiple shop fronts on a single server, for leasing to third parties. It comes with a built-in Sybase SQL Server 11 database, along with mall management, storefront software, business administrator modules and support for secure payment systems such as CyberCash. It runs on Windows NT, Sun Solaris, HP/UX and Silicon Graphics Irix, and supports the major web servers. Intershop takes its name from the former Eastern Bloc’s hard currency shops, open to everyone but the locals. The company recently signed a $25m licensing agreement with Deutsche Telecom AG (CI No 3,219).
