Business Challenge

In industries such as Healthcare, Insurance, and Government Agencies; companies are using 3270 Applications to store useful and important information for users to access through standard web browsers. Accessing host data and business logic with a cost effective and secure application provides value for a company and its users. Reducing costs by integrating Screen Based Legacy Data and Processing with Internet, intranet and extranet e-Business Solutions provides rapid development and superior response time.
