Net.Commerce gets update

IBM has upgraded Net.Commerce, its flagship electronic-commerce software platform, adding support for the new euro currency and 18 new partners that offer functions such as personalisation and supply-chain management.

IBM also said it's releasing a preview ver- sion of a Java-based component that lets Net.Commerce users conduct online auctions.

New Net.Commerce partners include CyberCash in Virginia, for payment processing through a user's own financial institution; Netcentives in California, for customer loyalty promotions; Net.Genesis in Boston, for data analysis and targeted marketing; and United Parcel Service of America in Georgia, for package tracking.

The move continues IBM's strategy of looking outside the company to bring more functions to its e-commerce offerings - a better strategy than trying to build in-house, said David Marshak, an analyst at consultancy Patricia Seybold Group.
