Innovative Products Focused on the z/VSE Community

Easy is just not a word that comes to mind for most companies trying to Internet-enable their mainframes. And with over 70% of the world's data still safe and secure on IBM mainframes, discovering how to make that data available through the Internet is on everyone's agenda. The problem is that despite their marketing messages, most software vendors require enormous investments in time, effort and money, so the reality ends up being far from Easy.

Why is our software different than all the rest? Simple. Our solutions to Internet-enable the mainframe were designed and developed by mainframe engineers, from a mainframe point of view. We developed what made sense, not what the most recent class or buzz word in the industry dictated. Our support technicians are legendary for their quick responses and changes for customers. After all, it's how you need to use the software that counts.
