PASSPORT Host Integration Objects at SHARE Enterprise Conference

Share Article

Zephyr is pleased to pre-announce the release of a new version of PASSPORT Host Integration Objects (HIO 2011) which will be available for download from our web site next month. Full details on PASSPORT Host Integration Objects 2011 will be available at the SHARE conference in Orlando, FL, August 7-12, 2011.

PASSPORT HIO is Zephyr's market-leading, non-intrusive IBM System z and System i host application integration software that allows programmers to quickly create server or client based applications to access and integrate with existing mainframe (system z) or AS/400 (System i) business applications. PASSPORT HIO offers a fast, low risk approach to reusing valuable business processes that have been adapted and perfected over many years and can also eliminate the need for terminal emulation.

Some examples of PASSPORT HIO uses are:

Insurance Claims Station. A few of our larger Insurance customers have integrated the 3270 claims processes with their other non-mainframe databases and applications, providing claims agents with single desktop application and improving productivity.

Medicare and Medicaid access. Programmed access to these essential systems for a large number of hospitals and healthcare organizations. The solutions reduce the need for terminal emulation and system operators and offer very fast access for checking status from these systems such as claims checking.

Retail POS. Solution linking POS terminals with centralized applications running on IBM mainframes.

Call Center Integration. Similar to Insurance claims station, using PASSPORT HIO has helped reduce the call time and improve the productivity of call center agents. It has also been used to reduce the number of terminal emulators and their operators by embedding large numbers of host sessions that demand extensive screen scraping. IVR integration. HIO used as a solution for connecting interactive voice response systems to IBM 3270 and 5250 applications.

HIO 2011 will have some key enhancements that include:

Clientless Terminal Emulation. Using just HTTP or HTTPS, HIO 2011 will offer secure and fast access to IBM mainframes and AS/400's without the need to install any software on the clients. This will work from any browser and any device.

New fully functioning sample applications to help programmers achieve faster results.

Access to Zephyr's mainframe based applications for development and testing.

Full details on PASSPORT Host Integration Objects 2011 will be available at the SHARE conference in Orlando, FL, August 7-12, 2011. Make plans to visit the Zephyr booth to see PASSPORT HIO as well as our flagship terminal emulation products PASSPORT PC TO HOST® and PASSPORT WEB TO HOST® .

At the Zephyr stand, you can also register to win exciting prizes that will be awarded at the conclusion of the SHARE conference.
