English translation:information and processing platform
Explanation:
Especially in the context of e-commerce, I'd translate "Abwicklung" as processing or handling.

Schäfer gives:
Abwicklung f
(com) handling
– processing

And from Brinkmann/Blaha, WB der Daten- und Kommunikationstechnik:
Abwicklung - handling (of a job, etc.), execution (of a process, task, etc.)

Explanation:
I like the term "processing" platform,
but here are additional options (depending on your entire context):
handling platform (econ., der Ausfuhr, Waren)--prob. the best solution
clearing platform
regulating platform
Informationstraeger=storage medium
Informationsfluss= (comp.)packing density
The two examples above, should just
demonstrate that there are other
translations for information, than
"information."
Maybe, again depending on your entire
context, one of them, with the platform"
combination works better than "information."

Good luck,
Lis
