ZapNote: Grand Central
Grand Central Communications offers a private Web Services network that can connect multiple business partners over the Internet in a standards-based, loosely coupled fashion. Similar to the EDI value-added networks from earlier generations, Grand Central offers connectivity, security, and reliability to its participating customers. However, the similarity ends there. By leveraging the full power of Web Services and Service orientation, Grand Central enables multiple participants to connect with each other in a secure, easy to configure, easy to maintain fashion.
