Modern platform for secure and traceable data exchange
The data exchange between development partners is characterized by increasing complexity and steadily growing volume. This means to support standards and provide high flexibility. The integration of individual requirements in the context of exchange processes as well as the connection of third-party systems create further demands in a modern data exchange platform.
Apart from the basic functionalities implementing the data exchange technically, other criteria become more and more important for companies. As a matter of priority, reliability and traceability shall be guaranteed, as more and more data is exchanged around the globe. But also the number of data exchange partners is steadily rising. Every piece of information about the successful transmission, exchanging parties, the point of time and the data itself, has to be obligatory. In addition, high-risk data islands such as email boxes and insecure transmission ways (e.g. FTP) shall be avoided.
SWAN satisfies these central requirements in an excellent manner. In addition, there is an outstanding flexibility for individual process design (examination, conversion etc.), as well as the integration of third-party systems (e.g. PDM). SWAN provides the companies with the optimal scope for development to meet the specific demands of their own data exchange processes.
Therefore, SWAN has long since become an elementary component within the product development of our customers, such as Daimler AG, benefitting from SWAN and the range of services of SSC since the mid-1990s.
Being in operation for almost two decades and being continuously adjusted to current developments, SWAN contains many proven methods and requirements from the field. SWAN is exclusively developed by SSC and distributed worldwide.
Standards supported by SWAN:
- Sending and receiving in compliance with OFTP/OFTP2
- Support of ENGDAT standard, version 2 and 3 (VDA 4951)
- ENGPART for partner profile details
- Data transmission via IP (Internet), ENX and ISDN
- ComSecure encryption connection (SWANenterprise, SWANhosted )
