IONA ORBIX E2A WEB SERVICES INTEGRATION PLATFORM POWERS PREMIER FARNELL B2B TRADING SOLUTION

6/17/2002 - IONA®, the leading e-Business Platform provider for Web Services Integration (NASDAQ: IONA), today announced that Premier Farnell, the global marketer and distributor of electronic components and industrial products, has completed the roll-out of a B2B trading solution using IONA's Orbix E2A Web Services Integration Platform. Orbix E2A Web Services Integration Platform has enabled Premier Farnell to link its ordering system with the multiple electronic purchasing systems of its customers. The solution has been implemented at Premier Farnell locations in the United Kingdom and the United States. To support its B2B trading solution, Premier Farnell required a platform that would work with all customers' current electronic procurement systems, whether SAP, Oracle, Ariba, Commerce One, or custom technologies. The platform also had to have the ability to accommodate whatever systems customers might switch to in the future. Following an extensive vendor selection process, Premier Farnell chose IONA's Orbix E2A Web Services Integration Platform - Collaborate Edition because it's standards-based design and service-oriented integration architecture delivered immediate and long-term efficiency, performance and scalability benefits that proprietary solutions from B2B/EAI vendors could not offer.
