Applicability Statement 2 (AS2) is one of the most widely recognized messaging standards for business-to-business (B2B) e‐commerce with thousands of implementations worldwide. It enables users to connect, deliver and reply to all forms of data (including EDI and XML) securely and reliably, thus delivering cost savings and providing flexibility and control on how the data is utilized. AS2 is broadly adopted among the world’s major retailers and manufacturers, and is one of numerous standards built into the foundation of the E2open Business Network. By removing the obstacles to collaboration, and allowing for the exchange of data in a simple, secure and reliable manner, the E2open Business Network enables comprehensive visibility and the rapid onboarding of global trading partners.
“Today’s leading, global organizations depend on proven B2B integration solutions to ensure real-time collaboration across their supply chain networks and to better connect with their trading partners within a global business network,” said Ian Hedges, Vice President, Platform, E2open. “We’re committed to maintaining greater interoperability and are honored to have earned the Drummond Certified™ seal, demonstrating our promise to our customers to put the flexibility and control of managing supply chain data back in their hands.”
