Server-based, host access management solution that
lays the necessary foundation for evolving corporate systems to e-business.
Attachmate e-Vantage consists of a comprehensive set of products, global
consulting services, and strategic partnerships that help organizations
extend existing host-based business applications to new groups of users
using Web technology.
e-Vantage allows IT managers to dramatically reduce network complexity
while providing secure user access to any type of host application or data.
It helps organizations capitalize on e-business opportunities today with an
object-oriented architecture, industry-standard interfaces, customized
access to a variety of host systems including IBM S/390, and centralized
software management and distribution.
Attachmate e-Vantage offers several key advantages to server-based host access:
- Control Over Complexity. Attachmate e-Vantage is one of the first
solutions to incorporate enterprise-wide management of host access
including centralized configuration, fault-tolerant software distribution
for both thin and thick clients, and VPN (Virtual Private Network)
security. Regardless of the type of host access, an administrator can
control who has access to host systems, what information they can see, how
it is presented, and how they stay current with the latest software.
- Ability to Evolve. Attachmate e-Vantage
allows customers to evolve in segments. The management technology,
combined with a highly flexible licensing plan, gives Attachmate e-Vantage
customers the ability to combine different types of host access at-will,
whether they are traditional client- or server-based access products. In
addition, clients can move from thick-to-thin clients and implement
e-business applications, all without re-licensing or additional cost.
- Freedom of Choice. Attachmate e-Vantage supports industry standards such
recently proposed OHIO standard, jointly authored by IBM and Attachmate,
for integrating host systems with new e-business applications.
- Faster Time to Market. All major components of Attachmate e-Vantage
share a common set of host access objects that are also accessible to
application programmers. This architecture, along with extensive
development studios, expert consulting services, and fault-tolerant
software distribution, provide a foundation for rapid development and
deployment of new, host-integrated e-business applications - regardless of
LAN, WAN, Internet, extranet, or intranet needs.
