CSC, Commerce One Collaborate on E-Marketplaces

By Gail Repsher Emery, Staff Writer

SEPT. 19 ? Commerce One Inc., developer of e-commerce solutions for business, and Computer Sciences Corp., provider of information technology services, said Sept. 19 they will collaborate in implementing and operating electronic marketplaces and e-procurement solutions.

The nonbinding memorandum of understanding was announced during the eLink 2000 conference in Las Vegas. A definitive agreement between Commerce One of Pleasanton, Calif., and CSC of El Segundo, Calif., is expected to come in the fourth quarter of this year.

The alliance will combine Commerce One's technology and Global Trading Web network with CSC's global outsourcing, hosting, consulting and systems integration capabilities.

Under preliminary terms, Commerce One and CSC plan to partner in federal markets in the United States as well as commercial and other government markets worldwide, building upon the CSC European Commerce One practice launched in May.

It is expected that CSC will use Commerce One's MarketSite Portal Solution to help automate its nearly $5 billion in annual spending. Commerce One also expects to certify CSC as both a Global Integration Partner and a Premier Hosting Partner.

"We believe the anticipated alliance with CSC will complement the technology solutions that Commerce One is bringing to commercial markets by providing customers with rapid e-marketplace development," said Chuck Donchess, executive vice president and chief strategy officer at Commerce One.

"We also expect that CSC's deep experience with the government markets will facilitate Commerce One's plans to expand solution offerings to include federal markets in the United States as well as government markets worldwide," he said.
