BizTalk Accelerator for RosettaNet 2.0, which began shipping late last month, fulfills the demands by enabling users to develop, administer and test B2B software connections among trading partners that adhere to RosettaNet e-business communications standards, the officials said.
For rapid deployment, Microsoft added a wizard UI (user interface) to Version 2.0 that lets users quickly set up partner relationships and PIPs (partner interface processes) as defined by RosettaNet. If a customer or partner modifies a PIP, the user can deploy the changed PIP through the wizard-based UI, according to officials.
