AUSTIN, TX—Sept. 9, 2013—Drummond Group Inc., the trusted leader in interoperability software testing, today announced the completion of its ebMS-2Q13 automated interoperability test event in which four products are newly Drummond Certified™. New software applications from Axway, Cleo, GXS and IBM participated in this latest vendor-neutral test event. ebMS 2.0 products are globally utilized in several industries, including automotive, financial services, government, healthcare and retail.

“Industries around the world appreciate the significance of the ebMS Messaging standard and certified interoperability,” said Rik Drummond, DGI’s chief executive officer. “By continuing to work together and testing innovative software applications in a neutral environment, these global companies show collective support for ebMS 2.0 applications as they deliver endless benefits to their customers. Essentially, these latest, certified applications will allow customers to save time and money when exchanging large amounts of data over the Internet in a secure, reliable and quick manner.”
