Microsoft Host Integration Server technologies and tools enable enterprise organizations to integrate existing IBM host systems, programs, messages and data with new Microsoft server applications.
Host Integration Server 2010 offers many benefits to enterprise IT professionals and developers:
- Allows IT administrators to securely and efficiently connect new systems to existing systems using industry-standard High Performance Routing (HPR) and Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) over Internet Protocol (IP), reducing operating expenses and total cost of ownership (TCO), while supporting existing and new computing workloads.
- Enables enterprise developers to deliver new applications faster with less custom coding through improved productivity using Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 and Microsoft .NET Framework 4, without requiring knowledge of host systems and infrastructure, compared to IBM host development tools and technologies.
- Empowers knowledge workers and decision-makers to analyze and report vital information faster, by directly accessing host data sources from business intelligence tools within Microsoft Office SharePoint 2010 and SQL Server 2008 R2, without needing to schedule host developers to write programs to extract and convert host data structures.
