Oracle E-business Hub is a collection of b-to-b (business-to-business) software products that automate processes and enable collaboration across companies, Oracle said in a news release. The new E-Business Hub applications include Oracle Supply Chain Hub, Oracle Transportation Hub, Oracle Product Development Hub, and Oracle Exchange Marketplace, the Redwood Shores, Calif.-based company said.
The online collaboration software can connect to any system through XML application interfaces or a simple Web browser. Oracle E-Business Hub components work on top of Oracle8i Database and Oracle9i Application Server.
