Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

ComputerWire: IT Industry Intelligence

Microsoft Corp will today announce further details of its Jupiter project to componentize and integrate its e-business server family, including Content Management Server 2002, Commerce Server 2002, and BizTalk Server 2002.

Jupiter is Microsoft's project to enable customers to mix-and-match e-commerce and business process products and select the functionality they desire, instead of having to buy an entire e-business server targeted at specific uses.

The Jupiter technologies will be delivered in two phases over the coming 18 months and will include extended business process management and monitoring capabilities, as well as additional support for XML web services, including the Business Process Execution Language for Web Services (BPEL4WS).

The first phase of delivery will arrive in the second half of 2003 with the integration of the BizTalk, Commerce and Content Management Server products. The first set of technologies delivered in this time will include services for process automation, workflow, integration, and BPEL support, while development tools for the BizTalk, Commerce and Content Management Server products will be moved into the Visual Studio.NET development environment.

The second phase, due in the first half of 2004, will focus on content and commerce functionality, with services for content management, commerce, catalog management, personalization, targeting, site analytics, site management, and campaign management, as well as integration with the company's Office desktop productivity software.

More details of the Jupiter project's timeline and delivery goals is expected from e-business server lead product manager, Dave Wascha, at Microsoft's IT Forum event in Copenhagen, Denmark.
