Swedish Tech Pioneers Launch New All Java Commerce Platform to Sell Live Replicas of the Earth

(March 26, 2002) -During the CeBIT show in Hannover, Swedish tech pioneers Polopoly launched their latest piece of technology - a multi-channel commerce platform that can handle integrated m-, t-, and e-commerce strategies. The commerce platform is easily integrated with the award-winning Polopoly Java Content Management System. The first product offered via the new commerce technology is the EcoSphere, a NASA spin- off product that replicates the Earth's own ecosystem.

The EcoSphere was originally developed by NASA to show how life can be exported to other planets. The EcoSphere is an autonomous ecosystem contained in a glass bulb. Shrimps, filtered seawater, algae, gorgonia, and gravel are all part of a working ecosystem. This ecosystem only needs light to prosper. The new Commerce Module will bring the Polopoly ecosystem to market.

"When we came across the EcoSpheres, we realized that this was the perfect piece to introduce our commerce platform," said Polopoly CEO Gustaf Sahlman. "It captures the out-of-the-lab spirit of Polopoly - and if placed on top of a server it actually turns technology into art."

The core team of Polopoly has its roots in an electronic warfare project for the Swedish defense in 1995. In 1996, they started working on the first version of the Polopoly Content Management System. From the beginning some key development decisions were made: It should be an all Java system, built entirely on open standards and open architecture. Polopoly is the opposite of monopoly. It empowers the customers. They are free to work with system integrators, database vendors, operating systems, and hardware manufacturers of their choice. It is an ideal system for a complex environment. Today, the leading - and most innovative - Scandinavian media players and other blue-chip clients like IKEA and Ericsson are using Polopoly technology to solve their content management needs.
