IBM Premier Business Partner - Smarter CommerceContinuing Support of the Connect:Enterprise Solution

The IBM Sterling solutions have been around for many years and have gone through many improvements and evolutions.  What makes the IBM Sterling products appealing is their longevity and reliability.  But there can also be some situations where additional support is needed on software products that are waning from their lifecycle.

One such product is IBM Sterling Connect:Enterprise.  This application was developed to allow large organizations facilitate their file gateway services and trading partner connections for B2B transactions.

While the lifecycle on this product is drawing to a close, many businesses continue to use this product successfully.  Other businesses might be seeking replacement solutions for the IBM Sterling Connect:Enterprise solution. Either way, you can count on Lightwell for expert assistance.
