Have you ever started an enterprise Application Integration project with a completely clean slate? Have you ever not had to deal with a “legacy” system?
Your legacy systems may be all the applications that were put in place before you joined the company. Or, they may be the core business systems you've spent decades investing in. Whether those legacy systems involve mainframes, midrange systems, or older UNIX applications, they currently hold the key to your valuable customer information assets and the processes and transactions that run your business. Are legacy systems an asset for you or an obstacle to success?
Many established companies end up feeling trapped by an IT infrastructure they have spent millions of dollars to develop. Why? Because to fully realize the vision of today's CRM and e-business initiatives you must deliver enterprise-wide integration of people, processes and data from the front office to the back-end host systems, leveraging the power and value of those existing systems. But these systems weren't designed for on-line, real-time CRM and e-business. So, how do you use what you’ve got to get to where you want to be?
That's where Jacada comes in. Whether you're integrating core business data in legacy systems with Siebel or other CRM applications, providing web-based access to these systems for other key enterprise applications, or extending access to customers and suppliers for improved e-business, you need a legacy enterprise Application Integration solution that is fast, focused, and flexible. Jacada HostFuse is that solution.
