Drummond Group announced that Cleo has successfully completed the latest round of its AS3 interoperability certification tests.
The AS3 interoperability certification tests certify Version 5.5 of the Cleo Harmony®, Cleo VL Trader®, and Cleo LexiCom® solutions, which are part of the Cleo Integration Cloud. Cleo was one of just three companies to complete this round of testing and has completed every Drummond AS3 test since 2004.
AS3 is an IEFT messaging specification standard (RFC 4823) that is designed to strengthen file transfer protocol with digital security and receipt validation. Applications use AS3 to communicate EDI data, or other information including XML documents, securely over the Internet using the FTP protocol.
AS3, like AS2, is an open standards protocol promoting interoperability, and Drummond Group certifies interoperability among software products. Interoperability makes the solution attractive to organizations that desire to do business with a wide variety of partners and do not want to be constrained to the limits and expense of a proprietary solution.
