At JMR Consulting UK Ltd, we know that many organisations still rely on systems running on IBM mainframe, mid-range and Unix platforms to deliver core components of their business processes.
We help our clients create solutions that will reliably deliver functionality and data from these legacy applications to PCs and web browsers across modern infrastructures. We also ensure that, with thousands of users to support, they implement solutions that are both economical and easy to deploy. And we make sure that, as their business moves forward, those integration solutions can quickly and easily combine elements of legacy systems with new code to allow them to leverage their existing IT investment to support new products and markets.
We provide all that through the Passport suite of products, which offers the very best range of solutions for integrating key functionality from legacy systems into evolving IT infrastructures. By deploying Passport, our clients can save 50% or more of their annual host access costs compared with using competitor products. At the same time, Passport also outperforms its competitors for speed, ease of use, ease of deployment and customisation.
Passport offers three solutions for access to legacy functionality:
- Passport PC-to-Host, a traditional PC-based ‘thick client’ terminal emulator, delivers emulation through a small footprint and four APIs. It can be quickly and easily distributed and installed through SMS, MSI, Citrix and Microsoft Terminal Services.
- Passport Web-to-Host, a “thin client” terminal emulator, provides powerful browser-based access to IBM mainframe, AS/400 and UNIX applications. It can be centrally administered and deployed from all leading web servers, and offers three APIs for screen scraping of host sessions.
- Passport HIO (Host Integration Objects) allows IBM 3270 and 5250 host applications to be easily integrated with ActiveX components or .NET-based applications. It enables organisations to leverage existing tried-and-tested functionality for re-use in the latest generation of Microsoft Windows applications.
