CHICAGO, Nov. 20 -- Clerity Solutions Inc. (Clerity), a leading full-service provider of mainframe migration and modernization solutions, today introduced new software and services that enable legacy mainframe applications and rehosted workloads to play strategic roles in SOA and Web services initiatives.
Building on a heritage of maximizing the value of core IT assets while lowering total cost of ownership, Clerity Service Builder and Clerity Web Connect allow organizations to easily expose legacy assets as secure Web Services and rapidly transform inflexible screen-based applications into modern, user-friendly Web applications.
"Our SOA and Modernization technology solves a pressing problem for customers -- how to integrate distributed applications with legacy workloads," said Brandon Edenfield, president of Clerity Solutions Inc. "As companies rely more on SOA initiatives to preserve investments and reduce costs, including legacy applications and open systems assets without recoding or rebuilding is an important step in delivering enterprise-class business services."
Using Clerity Service Builder, companies can quickly assemble and deploy multi-step, multi-operation composite business services from 3270-based CICS, IMS, and UniKix Transaction Processing Environment (UniKix TPE) transactions, in addition to COMMAREA and native data Web Services. Clerity Service Builder's runtime environment runs on a mainframe or rehosted platform, eliminating the need for costly and complex middleware. An intuitive drag-and-drop development tool is included to compose business services and it is pre-integrated with key technologies to make generated services instantly recognizable and accessible within a SOA environment. These services can be utilized by .NET and Java-based application environments; no special understanding of SOAP, XML, WSDL or HTTP protocols is required.
With Clerity Web Connect, inflexible "green screen" applications can be rapidly transformed into modern, user-friendly Web applications without changing underlying program code. Offering a simple visual editing environment, Clerity Web Connect provides instant access to 3270 and 5250 applications so developers can develop, deploy, and call Web Services from any captured screen.
"The look of an application can be quickly improved without requiring HTML or Java coding skills," said Barry Tait, modernization architect for Clerity. "Screen interface customization and application workflow reengineering is all performed in an intuitive visual environment; eliminating work that used to take organizations weeks or even months to perform."
Both Clerity Service Builder and Clerity Web Connect are available immediately. In addition to providing these key technologies, Clerity offers a range of discovery, assessment, and delivery services to assist organizations in evaluating, executing, and managing SOA, Web Services, and related legacy modernization initiatives.
