Pervasive extends Marathon’s e-commerce on Azure cloud

NFR Studies uses Paradigm’s toolset, a third party modeler and CSMP++ process simulator.

Pervasive Software is building on a 10 year business relationship with Marathon Oil with a new initiative to onboard ‘hundreds’ of new suppliers. Marathon’s increasing activity in the Eagle Ford shale area has led to a near quadrupling of its supplier count. Marathon uses Pervasive’s Business Xchange (PBX) managed services for e-invoicing, remittances and other electronic business document exchange.

PBX is hosted in the Windows Azure cloud. Pervasive’s Markus Bockle explained, ‘Offering our services on the Azure cloud means we can easily scale-up to accommodate hundreds of additional suppliers. We also get the flexibility to deliver innovative subscription and usage-based pricing that makes automated trading affordable for Marathon and to its ‘long tail’ of suppliers.’

Pervasive, a member of the Petroleum Industry Document Exchange (PIDX) standards body, provides electronic exchange of supply chain-related documents to many of the world’s largest oil and gas operators and suppliers. Pervasive was acquired by Actian this month. More from Pervasive.
