The MarketSite for Australasia will be operated by Cable & Wireless Optus and will be fully operational by March 2000.

"The alliance between Commerce One, PeopleSoft and Cable & Wireless Optus will create a global infrastructure for business-to-business buying and selling over the Internet enabling organisations to streamline their vendor relationships and significantly lower costs throughout the enterprise," Barkla said.
