EDI and B2B Expert Podcast Series: Hubwoo's Rinus Strydom, Part 2

This is Part 2 of SAP Mentor Kevin Benedict's video podcast interview with Hubwoo's CMO Rinus Strydom.  You can listen to Part 1 here.  Last week Hubwoo and Crossgate announced a strategic partnership that involves both companies sharing their EDI/B2B business networks, and utilizing each other's services.  I am reading between the lines here, but this seems to be much more strategic than the average "strategic" alliance.  To me this seems like a direct competitive challenge to Ariba.  Both companies are in SAP's investment portfolio.  Both run managed services hubs, although with different primary focuses.  Both are SAP partners, and both companies have products sold by the SAP sales teams.
