Covast Adds ebXML Capabilities to Microsoft BizTalk Server 
Covast ebXML Messaging Service Adapter to enable ebXML-based transactions in
BizTalk Server 

Rotterdam, The Netherlands - August 31, 2008 - Covast today announced the
general availability of its ebXML Messaging Service Adapter for BizTalk
Server. The Covast ebXML Messaging Service Adapter will allow current and
future BizTalk Server customers to conduct B2B transactions using the global
ebXML standard. 

With a growing presence in the B2B industry, ebXML (Electronic Business
using eXtensible Markup Language) offers more standardized and secure
communications across the internet than traditional XML-based
communications. For this reason, ebXML has become the standard of choice for
many government organizations, as well as organizations in the manufacturing
and energy sector. 

Today, BizTalk Server does not currently support the ebXML standard. The
Covast ebXML Messaging Service Adapter will give BizTalk Server users the
ability to easily conduct B2B communications using this standard. 

"The Covast ebXML Messaging Service Adapter will bring ebXML capabilities to
BizTalk Server customers. Covast's work on this technology is an excellent
example of how Microsoft partners play an instrumental role in ensuring
BizTalk Server remains the most widely-used B2B integration platform in the
world," said Dan Alling, Sr. Product Manager - Business Development,
Microsoft Corp. 

Covast has been Microsoft's goto partner for specialist B2B functionalities
for 7 years and is the natural Microsoft Gold Certified partner to extend
ebXML capabilities to BizTalk Server. Several organizations are successfully
piloting the new technology in advance of its general availability release
in September 2008. 

"A growing number of companies in critical industries like government and
manufacturing are demanding a more secure alternative to XML-based
communication. The Covast ebXML Messaging Service Adapter gives them just
that - the security of ebXML within the reliability and scalability of the
BizTalk Server environment," said Daan Scheer, CEO, Covast.
