Legacy Integration Reports

Product Quicktake: InterSystems Ensemble

Almost every company has been stretching to do more with less -- to modernize legacy applications, to rapidly develop functionality to extend existing aplications or meet new business demands, and to integrate disparate applications and data into a cohesive platform that meets dynamic business requirements. Unfortunately, individual technical answers to these problems result in piecemeal solutions that are inflexible and difficult to maintain, while solutions based on traditional broad-based integration platforms are often complex, expensive to develop, and require months if not years to complete. What organizations need is a way to rapidly develop composite applications that integrate new business functionality with existing application logic or data.Ensemble, by InterSystems Corporation, is a comprehensive integration platform designed to meet this need.

 

Product Spotlight: WRQ Verastream

Verastream, by WRQ, is a host integration server that enables organizations to take legacy applications and reuse them in new business initiatives. It supports legacy extension or "Web-refacing" (where the legacy application still follows the original workflow and steps but the user interface is simplified), integration of legacy information with modern applications, and transformation of legacy applications through programmatic integration to create new composite applications (for situations where legacy access is needed, but is in the form of a new workflow or different order from the original workflow on the legacy application).

 

Product Quicktake: WRQ Inc. Verastream 5.5

Verastream, by WRQ, is a legacy integration server that enables organizations to take existing legacy applications and reuse them in new business initiatives. It supports both legacy extension and "Web-facing" (where the legacy application still follows the original workflow and steps but the user interface is simplified), integration of legacy information with existing applications, and transformation of legacy systems through programmatic integration to create new composite applications (for situations where legacy access is needed but is in the form of a new workflow or different order from the original workflow on the legacy system).

 

Product Quicktake: Attunity Connect

Attunity Connect is integration middleware for accessing the mainframe, enterprise data sources, and legacy applications. While it can access and connect to relational sources, its forte is non-relational legacy systems, where it can expose legacy data using standard SQL, and functions as XML-based Web services. It also provides connectivity among J2EE applications, .NET applications, leading integration brokers, and legacy systems. Key components of the product include a series of prebuilt adapters for such platforms as mainframes, HP NonStop, OpenVMS, and more, as well as the ability to take any legacy transaction and make it look like a standard Web service.

 

Product Quicktake: Quovadx QDX Platform

Quovadx, formerly XCare.net Inc., is best known for Cloverleaf, its integration platform for the healthcare industry. In June 2001, XCare acquired Confer Software, a developer of application development, process management and workflow applications, and Healthcare.com, a provider of EAI tools. In September 2001, these entities were renamed Quovadx. The acquisitions resulted in a full development and integration platform that provides application development, application integration, business process automation and workflow.

 

Product Quicktake: Magic Software iBOLT Integration Suite

Magic Software's iBOLT Integration Suite, released in March 2003, is an enterprise application integration platform targeted at mid-sized organizations, a considerably underserved market in today's hot EAI space. Magic Software, a 700-employee company headquartered in Israel, is no newcomer to the software market. With a 15-year track record as a high-level application development tool company, Magic recently repositioned itself in the EAI space with its iBOLT Integration Suite, which is based on existing eDeveloper and connectivity technology. Magic realized that most of its customers were using its development environment for application development and integration, and began to add the necessary components to make its solution a stand-alone EAI environment.
