“Keep it in the Blue”: ForeFront Announces IBM Emptoris’ Migration Solutions

Award-Winning Global Cloud Systems Integration Innovator Announces Connected Alternative with IBM Cloud and Contract Management

Fair Haven, NJ – July 12, 2018: Off the heels of IBM’s announcement to sunset Emptoris, their web-based contract management tool, and plans to transition customers to SAP Ariba platform, ForeFront, a global cloud systems integration innovator, announces their compelling alternative. This new solution leverages IBM Cloud and the market’s #1 contract management software, in efforts to “Keep it in the Blue,” ForeFront’s mantra into building and maintaining services on the IBM Platform.

ForeFront understands the need for Emptoris clients to preserve an on-premises, behind enterprise firewall, contracts repository within established compliance governance. In the same respect, clients want a more flexible, scalable cloud-based experience to meet today’s engagement expectations.

“By leveraging IBM App Connect, we are thrilled to have an answer for Emptoris customers to extend the sunset period with a migration path to a more robust Contract Lifecycle Management (CLM) platform,” said Anne Marie Berger, President at ForeFront. “It enables clients to migrate at their own pace while maintaining compliance and document integrity.”

Earlier this year, IBM and leading Contract Management platform announced a strategic partnership. As a premier IBM Cloud Partner and CLM-Certified Implementation Partner, ForeFront is uniquely positioned to “Keep it in the Blue.” ForeFront is leveraging its integration know-how and bringing to market “Calypso”, an IBM App Connect-based Integration as a Service (IaaS) between Emptoris and CLM platforms.

ForeFront has worked, beyond seamless Emptoris-CLM integration, on complex engagements across industries, and successfully deployed solutions that include SAP Ariba, Infor, Kopa, Documentuum – to name a few. ForeFront’s “Calypso” IaaS is scheduled to release for general availability later in the year.
