Get recognized quickly. The Drummond Certified™ seal is more than just a pretty logo. It’s a well-known, respected recognized seal that software customers frequently seek.

AS2 Interoperability Certification

Full-matrix interoperability testing for the IETF AS2 (Applicability Statement 2 – RFC 4130) HTTP-based transport protocol standard. Multiple participating software vendors sign up to participate in Drummond AS2 interoperability test events using the Drummond InSitu™ test management platform. All participating AS2 applications test against each other (all send/receive) to demonstrate interoperability and earn certification as a group. AS2 Interoperability testing is offered twice per year, March through May, and August through October.

AS2 Interoperability Pre-Certification

AS2 Interoperability pre-certification testing is required to gain entry into the AS2 Interoperability Certification testing round. In pre-certification, you are required to integrate the InSitu™ Framework into your application to allow for automated testing against two AS2 servers hosted by Drummond. This AS2 Interoperability pre-certification testing is offered upon request.

AS3 Interoperability Certification

Full matrix interoperability testing for the IETF AS3 (Applicability Statement 3 – RFC 4823) FTP-based transport protocol standard. Multiple participating software vendors sign up to participate in a round of Drummond interoperability testing using the Drummond InSitu™ test management platform. All participating AS3 applications test against each other (all send/receive) to demonstrate interoperability and earn certification as a group. AS3 Interoperability certification is offered once per year, January through March.

AS3 Interoperability Pre-Certification

AS3 Interoperability pre-certification testing is required to gain entry into the AS3 Interoperability Certification testing round. In pre-certification, you are required to integrate the InSitu™ Framework into your application to allow for automated testing against the IETF AS3 (Applicability Statement 3) FTP-based transport protocol standard. This AS3 Interoperability pre-certification testing is offered upon request.

AS4 Interoperability Certification

Full matrix interoperability testing for the OASIS ( Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards) AS4 (Applicability Statement 4 – ebMS 3.0 AS4 profile version 1.0), uses the SOAP/Web Services standard, and InSitu™ is not required. All participating AS4 applications test against each other (all send/receive) to demonstrate interoperability and earn certification as a group. AS4 Interoperability certification is offered once per year, July through September.

AS4 Interoperability Pre-Certification

AS4 Interoperability pre-certification testing is required to gain entry into the AS4 Interoperability Certification round of testing. In pre-certification, you will test against one AS4 server hosted by Drummond. The OASIS AS4 Profile uses SOAP/Web Services standard for packaging and transport. This AS4 Interoperability pre-certification testing is offered upon request.

ebMS 2.0 Interoperability Certification

Full-matrix interoperability group testing for the OASIS ebMS Messaging Service (MS) 2.0 specification. Multiple ebMS software vendors sign up to participate in a round of Drummond interoperability testing. All participating ebMS 2.0 applications test against each other to demonstrate interoperability and earn certification as a group. Offered once per year, October through December.

ebMS 2.0 Pre-Certification

ebMS 2.0 Interoperability pre-certification testing is required to gain entry into the ebMS 2.0 Interoperability Certification round of testing, and tests conformance to the ebXML Messaging Service 2.0 specification. This ebMS 2.0 Interoperability pre-certification testing is offered upon request.

Global Data Synchronization Network (GDSN)

Drummond Group is the official certification testing authority for GDSN. The GDSN includes a network of interoperable data pools and the GS1 Global Registry, a registry for communicating master data (Catalogue Item and Party) between trading partners.
