ERP5 supports most IETF srandards (ex. SMTP, LDAP, IMAP, etc.) and can connect to about any relational database. Legacy standards (ex. CORBA or Z39.50) can be supported directly through libraries or, preferrably, through SOAP bridges which also easy the transition of Corporate Information Systems to W3C based standards.
