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.
Real-time integration of any existing applications and processes, including apps that have no available API. This way, the information flows smoothly throughout the enterprise.
Flawless bridging between the legacy system and new applications, as well as a complete system upgrade.
Ongoing trace monitoring of the data is kept highly available, which allows operators to analyze and respond to events in real time.
It is easy to scale up or down, and this is flexibly extendable according to emergent enterprise initiatives.
The mainframe often works only on outdated systems and hardware.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.
It becomes more and more difficult to get people with the right skill-set to maintain and use the system as it becomes obsolete. This might mean long hours of training for new staff.
As a mainframe app grows 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.
Retrieving the data you need, when you need it can become extremely difficult, especially if your organization is spread over a large geographical area.
The biggest challenge that an organization with a legacy application faces is integration. It is unable to both share data with other organizations, and take advantage of the new systems and technologies available. In the case of mergers and acquisitions, the organization ends up with two mainframes or legacy systems that are incompatible. So how do companies bring their mainframe systems up to speed?
Robotic process automation holds all the capabilities you need to unlock the potential of your business' core functions. Without modifying the mainframe, RPA’s software robots act as translators between the old and new platforms and applications. This can happen easily, 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, while robots manipulate the workflow with prompt results. They can monitor, analyze, 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.
