FRAMINGHAM (04/03/2000) - Commerce One Inc. will port its e-commerce products to the Unix operating system and Oracle Corp. database platforms sometime in the second half of the year, according to Commerce One. The products run strictly on Microsoft's Windows NT and 2000 operating systems and SQL Server database.
To date, Microsoft's involvement in recent large business-to-business exchanges has been tied to the success of e-commerce software vendor Commerce One in Walnut Creek, California. According to the company's product manager, Kyung Kim, Commerce One's "larger customers" have requested that the company offer more configuration options, and the plan to port is a response to that rather than "a move away from Microsoft."
Analysts and integrators said Commerce One is long overdue for a change of strategy.
