Global Commerce Initiative Launches ebXML Messaging Interoperability
Conformance Pilot
“Critical Step in Adoption,” says Rik Drummond, Vs.1 Chair ebXML Messaging

July 20, 2001 (Austin, TX) The Global Commerce Initiative announced today
they would launch the “ebXML Messaging Interoperability Conformance Pilot.”
Drummond Group Inc. will facilitate the interoperability testing of
messaging software between various vendors to develop recommendations for
implementations of these standards.

“Standards are often developed and not adopted,” says Rik Drummond, Chief
Scientist, Drummond Group Inc.  “There was a tremendous amount of work in
developing ebXML and the ebXML messaging specification.  Interoperability
testing ensures that this work will get adopted by the user community
quickly and on a global scale.”

“It is our principle within the Global Commerce Initiative to test the
standards and recommendations we are endorsing,” states Peter Jordan,
Director IS Strategic Projects Kraft Foods International, Member of the GCI
Executive Board and Co-Chair of the Business Process Group. “Our XML pilots
have clearly shown that messaging systems were not interoperable and this
pilot is a big step forward in providing this missing bridge.”

Test Participation
Drummond Group Inc. is now formally soliciting participation in the ebXML
Messaging Interoperability Conformance Pilot.  If you have interest, please
