Neociclo, the leading provider of open source Odette FTP (OFTP) solutions, has established an international standing by offering business-to-business (B2B) integration and application integration expertise in the automotive, government and financial industries. Neociclo is developing an open source Managed File Transfer integrated solution enabling to handle large amount of data and control all aspects of data movement on internal and external integration for organizations of all types.
Time to proof the value of Open Source in the segment of B2B Integration
Over the last 30 years only value added networks and commercial vendors were providing multi-enterprise collaboration and B2B infrastructure solutions. The monopolization comes with a price the market will not afford. The volume related pricing of data transfer and the implied software vendors lock-in are counter intuitive when the Internet is available worldwide and technology is not really a problem.
How to consolidate the investments on supply chain management, e-business services and IT governance without hazarding the budget? Executives and managers are challenged to break down with these controversial issues.
Neociclo has embraced the mission to open source the multi-enterprise collaboration and B2B integration platforms.
We are 99.9% sure that organizations running internal or external integration infrastructures relies at some level on open source software (OSS); admittedly or not, as end-users or by service providers. Succeeding the large enterprise adoption at infrastructure layers (operating systems, RDBMs, web servers, application servers) there are many examples of OSS players out there.
There’s no open source suite addressing support to OFTP and MFT features. We can see many other application stacks for application server, portals, business intelligence (BI), extraction-transformation and loading (ETL), business process management (BPM) and master data management (MDM), and so on… But at the time we launched there is no open source packaged solution. We aim at filling this gap.
