Ascential Software Corporation announced its support for Universal Application Network – the industry's first standards-based, vendor-independent application integration solution – launched by Siebel Systems in conjunction with industry-leading application software vendors, integration server vendors and systems integrators. Ascential also announced its support for Siebel Analytics – an end-to-end, next-generation analytics solution that provides all users with up-to-the-moment, actionable customer and business insight.

As part of this endorsement, Ascential plans to provide out-of-the-box connectivity from its new Enterprise Integration Suite to both Universal Application Network and Siebel Analytics. The integrated solution will enable customers to utilize Ascential's entire data integration suite, including profiling, cleansing, parallel processing and end-to-end meta data management across a network of applications to enable managed business processes and cross-source enterprise-wide analysis capabilities. This solution comes as a result of Ascential's leading connectivity to ERP systems, mainframe and relational data, Web Services and XML support and integrations with the other Universal Application Network-related integration vendors.

Universal Application Network takes a standards-based, vendor-independent approach to the design and development of end-to-end business processes based on best practices that are executed by market-leading integration servers. Based on XML and Web Services industry standards, Universal Application Network enables organizations to effectively integrate best-in-class applications and ensures that organizations are not locked into vendor- specific proprietary architectures.

The joint offering will provide any enterprise with disparate applications and data with an integrated solution that enables organizations to manage the flow of important information managed within a specific business process and to provide up-to-the-minute insight and analysis to all users.
