Legacy integration with Verastream is easy and risk-free. The Verastream integration suite provides a complete range of mainframe, web, and desktop modernization tools that speed the reuse of legacy applications in service-oriented architectures.
Legacy Integration for a Variety of Business Needs Verastream uses an advanced services approach to extend legacy data and logic to new users or new composite applications. You can selectively mix and match Verastream-generated services for integration with web, portal, CRM, mobile, call-center, or web self-service solutions. The Verastream integration suite offers:
Now you can get the complete range of mainframe, web, and desktop integration from a single vendor. Just choose the result you want—basic rejuvenation, customized presentation, or sophisticated high-performance integration—and Verastream can help you roll out a new look and feel. There is no need to disturb valuable legacy code or associated business processes.
Verastream provides a complete range of mainframe modernization tools, from basic rejuvenation to customized presentation and sophisticated high-performance integration.
Choose the method that suits your needs:
When direct-data access is not feasible and no API is available to access the business logic, integration through the terminal screen can be the most practical choice. With Verastream Host Integrator, developers can encapsulate data and logic via the screen interface. Whether your environment is IBM zSeries (S/390), IBM iSeries (AS/400), Unix, OpenVMS, or HP e3000, you can give users get a new look and feel, while leaving process flows unchanged.
CICS 3270 Bridge integration
When service-enabling CICS functionality, look for a solution that can directly leverage the power of the IBM mainframe. Verastream Bridge Integrator is a native, mainframe-resident adapter that runs in the CICS Transaction Server. It delivers reliable, high-performance integration of CICS applications.
Although most legacy applications don’t provide access to business logic via an API, some well-known exceptions include CICS- and IMS-based transactional applications on IBM mainframe platforms. Verastream Transaction Integrator gives developers direct access to CICS and IMS transactions. That way, they can build new services while bypassing the presentation layer for superior performance.
When business logic is impossible to access, data-level integration can be used. This method works best when you can easily access meaningful data, and when you do not need to update (write to) a database. Verastream Data Integrator provides pre-built drivers to access host-based data sources. They are easy to install, configure, and optimize without putting a strain on system resources.
