Supplier Enablement is the process of electronically connecting suppliers (or other trading partners) to a company's supply chain . Supplier enablement is achieved when suppliers of goods and services are connected to a company's back-office systems to exchange critical business documents such as purchase orders, invoices and other information. Suppliers can be connected, or &quot;enabled,&quot; using a variety of means including Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), Extensible Markup Language ( XML ), Web forms or other e-commerce tools.

cXML =commerce XML PunchOut is an e-procurement software application from Ariba that makes it possible for a buyer to access a supplier's Web site from within the buyer's own procurement application. The buyer leaves (&quot;punches out&quot; from) their company's system and goes to the supplier's Web-based catalog to locate and order products, while their application transparent ly maintains connection with the Web site and gathers pertinent information. A vendor catalog that is enhanced for this process is known as a punchout catalog . PunchOut enables communication between the software and the Web site so that relevant information about the transaction is delivered to the appropriate channels. Ariba based their product on commerce XML ( cXML ), which comprises a meta markup language and a protocol for data exchange between applications. RoundTrip, from Commerce One, and products based on Open Buying over the Internet ( OBI ) are similar to PunchOut, and are sometimes referred to as punchout solutions. Cisco understands the benefits the Ariba solution offers customers. Cisco is the first networking company to offer highly configurable products within the Ariba Buyer application. All transactions between the Ariba Buyer and Cisco are routed through the Ariba Commerce Services Network (ACSN). The ACSN authenticates the validity of the messages with the Ariba Buyer. The ACSN then authenticates with Cisco using digital certificates. Cisco obtains digital certificates from Verisign and installs them in the Cisco site. Traffic between Cisco and the ACSN uses strong industry standard encryption to protect data.
