The computing world has gone mobile, and your mainframe users expect instant access to applications and data no matter where they are, or what device they may be using. They also expect a consistent user experience across platforms including desktops, laptops, and mobile devices. At the same time, you need to keep all of your data secure and ensure you're complying with regulatory standards–and find a way to save money while you're at it. Sound impossible? It isn't with Rocket® BlueZone®.
Terminal emulation—any time, anywhere
Rocket® BlueZone® Web delivers secure, browser-based access to IBM zSystems mainframes from any device, including desktops, laptops, tablets, or other mobile devices–whatever you need to best serve your customers. Freeing your users from fixed terminals in a back room or office allows them to be more productive and deliver better, more immediate customer support. Your proven mainframe applications run exactly as they have since they were written–the only difference is they’re now accessible from any browser, in any location where there’s an internet connection. With BlueZone Web, your in-store sales force remains focused on the customer, answering requests on-the-spot for item availability, ship dates, and price quotes. Warehouse employees are similarly empowered to understand what stock is coming in, perform on-demand pick reports, and file incident reports or other tickets at any time. We can even help you lower overall expenses by making it easy to transition end user mainframe access from Windows® PCs to Chromebooks or other lower-cost devices.
Turn 3270 screen logic into new web and mobile apps
Not only do users expect modern interfaces, they want to access your mainframe applications from any location, using any device. However, many of your critical applications likely pre-date the internet, and building mobile apps that leverage 3270 screen logic isn't easy. But with Rocket® Process Integration (formerly API), you can do just that.
Rocket Process Integration makes it possible to encapsulate workflows and data from any 3270 screen. Using the APIs, you can integrate those workflows and data into new or existing web or mobile applications in a way that’s completely transparent to users. Customers and employees get the data and functionality they need to be productive no matter where they are. At the same time, you avoid the potentially massive costs and risks associated with rewriting applications from scratch. And since Rocket Process Integration is a low-touch, no-code solution you'll be able to give your users the fresh, modern experiences they expect in days–not months.
