Extol International, a provider of systems for business-to-business integration, has made generally available version 2.5 of the Extol Business Integrator.

It is designed to replace tools for data integration and business-process automation, Web services and Extensible Markup Language (XML) transformation toolkits, spreadsheet integrators and conventional electronic data interchange (EDI) translators. EBI 2.5 was designed to automate much of the manual work that goes into B2B integration. Enhancements and new capabilities include smart mapping based on user-configured mapping methods, a rule-set migration assistant which automates map maintenance, an EDI provisioning assistant to reduce EDI setup time, database monitors to automate the change data capture process, and EDI exit points for user-defined custom processing.
