The OpenworldX platform is designed to allow organisations to rapidly deploy new business processes across the enterprise. Also launched was the iBaan Value Apps suite, which aims to eliminate information delivery delays between supply chain partners.
Baan president Laurens van der Tang said, "Customers today are looking for solutions to specific problems that can be realised quickly and remain flexible to changes in the business process over time."
The new platform extends Baan's existing integration and collaboration products so that enterprises can engage only the software components needed for a business problem.
Planned iBaan Value Apps include supplier collaboration, configuration and commitment, and engineering design collaboration.
Baan said it is meeting the need for companies to solve specific business process problems quickly and claimed the lightweight new platform can coexist with any existing legacy system.
OpenworldX is a key technology in the company's roadmap for a next-generation ERP system codenamed Gemini that will be "zero-client" - having no processing power on the client - and support Web services.
