    Comprehensive Trading Partner Integration In One Package

    Today, automating business-to-business (B2B) transactions with trading partners is a must-have for large enterprises and agencies, especially in industries where standards compliance is critical. While integrating systems internally is complex, integrating outside the enterprise opens up additional challenges such as security, authentication, transaction management, and standardizing common document formats.

    TIBCO BusinessConnect? enables the automation and management of processes and transactions that span organizations. It provides an external gateway to centrally manage and secure the exchange of documents across multiple trading partners of all sizes?and it seamlessly integrates partner processes with internal systems for an end-to-end business process flow. In addition, TIBCO BusinessConnect provides REST APIs and web tools for configuring and managing partner relationships.




    1. Eliminate manual tasks and interactions while complying with industry standards
    2. Ease system migration and partner management using REST APIs and web-based tools
    3. Achieve tighter collaboration between trading partners to lower inventory across the supply chain
    4. Increase visibility into information and processes across the extended value chain and accelerate order to cash cycles
    5. Improve strategy coordination among manufacturers, distributors, and retailers
