Sun and Commerce One to Supply E-Commerce Solutions

Sun Microsystems and Commerce One will jointly develop and market B2B e-commerce solutions deployed on Sun's Internet platform worldwide. Sun and Commerce One plan to develop Commerce One solutions optimized for Sun's Solaris Operating Environment platform, and using Java technology.

The Commerce One solution on the Sun platform gives customers the ability to deploy highly scalable e-marketplaces that support large volumes in transactions and services. The relationship enables Commerce One to leverage Sun's engineering, sales and marketing operations, and positions Sun as the first UNIX platform provider available for the Commerce One Global Trading Web. Commerce One's e-business solution enables buyers, suppliers and service providers to connect and conduct all their business online.

This new alliance complements the existing relationships Commerce One and Sun have with SAP.

Components of Commerce One's e-procurement and e-marketplace applications are currently scheduled for availability on the Sun platform later this year, with general availability expected in early 2001.
