XMLSolutions Announces Vocabulary Builder for E-Business
MCLEAN, Va., May 10 /PRNewswire/ -- XMLSolutions Corporation, a worldwide
provider of strategic enterprise-to-enterprise, XML-based products and
services, announces the immediate availability of Vocabulary Builder for E-
Business. Vocabulary Builder is a program designed to bridge a company's
existing business vocabulary to today's e-commerce language while maintaining
contextual definitions on both ends.
Ron Shelby, eGM CIO, stated, ``The first step of a successful electronic
commerce endeavor is to maximize corporate vocabulary and semantics.''
XMLSolutions' Vocabulary Builder allows companies to do exactly that:
conduct business using the same syntax it has always used by XML-izing
existing business vocabulary, semantics unchanged, so that the company can
Vocabulary Builder extends business operations
across the Internet without revolutionizing core business processes.
With expertise in strategic metadata management, XML application
development, and e-business implementations, XMLSolutions utilizes Schema
Central(TM) and the proven META-X(TM) Methodology to identify corporate
metadata crucial to the successful implementation of Enterprise Application
Integration (EAI) and e-business initiatives.
``To correctly implement a B2B e-business initiative, companies must first
understand their own corporate vocabulary and then start to converse
electronically with their business and trading partners,'' stated Paul Sanborn,
Director of Consulting at XMLSolutions.
``If the two companies are not
speaking in the same business language (e.g., where part_nbr is the same as
ITEM_NO in different application system), their e-commerce initiatives are
destined to fail.''
The Vocabulary Builder program pinpoints strategic business information
and executes a crucial step in developing e-commerce solutions. Creating
Document Type Definitions (DTDs) that represent key business information is a
primary function of Vocabulary Builder. The implementation of the Vocabulary
Builder process closely follows the XMLSolutions' META-X Methodology, which is
broken into five phases: Metadata, Exchange, Transformation, Administration
Each phase is addressed for the Vocabulary Builder process:Metadata:
XMLSolutions has assembled a team of associates with over
100 years of experience in uncovering and leveraging a company's
metadata and semantics from its legacy systems.
-- Exchange: This phase focuses on mining the key metadata from
existing legacy systems. Queries are run against database tables to
extract naming standards, corporate entities, attributes, elements and
-- Transformation: The key metadata extracted from legacy systems is
converted into XML DTDs and presented via Schema Central(TM). These
XML DTDs can be immediately utilized as a foundation of metadata
starter sets for critical business projects. Because most EAI and
electronic commerce projects utilize XML, the DTDs can be easily
leveraged in this form.
-- Administration: In this phase, XMLSolutions provides the necessary
policies and procedures to support ongoing project planning and
management to support e-commerce initiatives and bring corporate
information to the Internet.
-- eXecution: XMLSolutions prepares a comprehensive marketing
presentation that demonstrates the metadata and corporate DTD findings.
This presentation will utilize actual corporate data standards and
elements. Additionally, XMLSolutions consultants will prepare an XML strategy
document, which addresses ongoing and future implementation plans.
