Using Microsoft's .NET Platform, Astron International Delivers XML-based Digital Solutions for BASF

Astron International developed and delivered XML Web Services based e-business solutions for BASF using Microsoft's .NET platform.

BASF Corporation, Catalysts Division provides products and applications to a very diverse collection of industries including aerospace, automotive, chemicals, consumer products, electronics, gas, packaging, plastics, petroleum, printing, rubber, and textiles. All these diverse customers have overlapping needs -- online order status, certificates of analysis, product specifications, lab analyses, online technical support, literature and more. BASF needed an e-business solution that provided these overlapping customer needs, integrated with its legacy systems, and was flexible enough to address the unique needs of the disparate market segments. The objective was to avoid rebuilding services that were common to more than one solution, without getting involved in heavy inheritance chains or customization problems. The expectation was to "drop in" an already built service, and have that service interact with other services through a common platform. Each of the e- business solutions needed to seamlessly interact with and be accessible from all other solutions and have the same look & feel and navigation design. It was important to BASF that their company was presented as a seamlessly integrated enterprise, with a consistent message and brand. Astron delivered a solution to meet these needs.
