VWM makes it simple and fast to serve host transactions such as CICS, IMS, and Natural as modern and user-friendly webpages to create a genuine web portal (GUI) experience with:
- Updated workflow: screen consolidation, tab navigation, and collapsible sections
- Widget-assisted data entry: checkboxes, dropdown lists, and graphical calendars
- New Ajax application features: suggest, auto-complete, PDF generation, and emailing
Users think that they are accessing a genuine web application: they can’t tell that they are accessing a legacy mainframe application.
Because they rely on standard (HTML) web technology, VWM’s GUI pages will work instantly with any web-enabled device available today, and with future web-enabled devices as well.
With the Virtel Studio and Virtel Screen Redesigner IDEs, developing a VWM web portal is ten times faster and less expensive than rehosting, replacing, or redeveloping the host application. It doesn’t require changing the legacy code, and can be done progressively, a few 3270 screens at a time.
