BusinessConnect is built on TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks, which allows for a familiar experience and ease of integration. BusinessConnect supports all major transport and business protocols and comes bundled with EZComm, an easy-to-use data transfer protocol that allows you to securely exchange data with minimal configuration.
BusinessConnect provides a complete set of tools, allowing companies to do full audits of their B2B activities. A non-repudiation database enables BusinessConnect users to determine the authenticity of a message and a sender.
Below is the architecture of TIBCO BusinessConnect
In the above figure there are 3 components:
TIBCO BusinessConnect server: This is a runtime engine that provides services to the TIBCO BusinessConnect protocols.
