Mainframe Integration and Automation
Enables you to integrate any mainframe, T3700, green screen, Java, or legacy app via UI Automation. Automated data entry and 100% accurate screen scraping on mainframes are integrated into your business flow.
Create an interactive dialogue between your mainframe and the Cloud through a common, flexible infrastructure. Any communication protocol, language, or format is safely supported.
Existing applications and processes, including legacy apps that have no available API, are integrated in real time, thus keeping with the information flow throughout the enterprise.
Mainframe Data Migration
Flawless bridging between the legacy system and new applications, as well as a complete system upgrade, is possible with UiPath.
Monitoring and Tracking
Ongoing trace monitoring of the data is kept highly available, which allows operators to analyse and respond to events in real time.
It is easy to scale up or down, and this flexibly is extendable according to emergent enterprise initiatives.
Mainframes : Trusted Companions Through the Years
Today, mainframes continue to play a strategic role in the IT logic of many organizations. They act as efficient data stores and reliable workhorses for complex processing. Meanwhile, current business climate changes call for the integration of mainframes with new applications and architectures. The challenge is to unlock the data that is housed in the existing mainframes in order to prime them to respond to new demands. All of this is done without having to reinvent the system.
The Challenges that Legacy Apps Face
Although they work admirably well how they were designed, green screens can pose quite a few challenges to a company.
Increasing Cost: The mainframe often works only on outdated systems and hardware. These systems start to break down as time goes by and the cost of maintaining them rises exponentially.
Decreasing Expertise: It becomes more and more difficult to get people with the right skill-set to maintain and use the system as it becomes increasingly antiquated. This could mean hours and hours of training for new staff.
Low Security: As a mainframe app becomes older, it also becomes rarer. Security products or solutions that meet modern day threats may no longer be available in the market, which exposes the whole system to security risks.
Data Retrieval: Retrieving the data you need when you need it can become extremely difficult, especially if your organization is spread over a large geographical area.
Integration: The biggest challenge that an organization with a legacy application faces is integration. It is unable to share data with other organizations, nor is it able to take advantage of the new systems and technologies available. In the case of mergers and acquisitions, you end up with two mainframes or legacy systems that cannot work together.
So how do companies bring their mainframe systems up to speed?
UiPath Mainframe Automation: Bridging Your Green Screen Through GUI Automation
Robotic process automation holds all of the capabilities that are needed to unlock the potential of the core functions of your business. Without modifying the mainframe, RPA’s software robots act as translators between the old and new platforms and applications, as well as over the Cloud. You can leverage the existing mainframe and applications to quickly integrate with new systems and Cloud-based services,orchestrating everything from a single interface.
Apps and processes are quickly mobilized, agents to manipulate the workflow with prompt results. They can monitor, analyse, correlate and respond to events in real time and improve customer service. You are free to choose the pace of integration, scale up or down, as well as extend according to your strategic needs. There is no need to worry about the safety of your data as RPA builds on that. As far as expenditure is concerned, you can be sure that this is essentially the most cost-effective solution to integration.
