Empowering The Modern User

Legacy mainframe applications were built at a time when highly trained operators had sole access to core business systems. Other employees, partners, and customers could “interact” with the mainframe only through these power users working in a call center or office pool.

Today, however, people expect instant self-service access to everything – bank accounts, insurance policies, health records, and so on. For many organizations, providing that access and tapping the vast pool of user productivity can revolutionize business.


To revitalize mainframe applications with modern Web interfaces or incorporate mainframe resources within rich new Web-based composite applications, Brandon uses WIRE, the Web Interface Rules Engine. With WIRE, organizations make the mainframe readily accessible from any client device – desktop, laptop, tablet, and the latest smartphone.

WIRE is a programming and runtime environment that enables rapid development and deployment of dynamic new Web applications for today’s users – employees, partners, and customers – while reducing modernization costs.

With WIRE’s three presentation modes, organizations can deploy terminalstyle screens for seasoned users, add Web tools such as navigation tabs and buttons for an even easier terminal-style display, or design rich, fullfeatured Web pages or entirely new Web applications featuring appealing layouts, formatting, and navigation, and leveraging custom controls and data dictionary rules to integrate data, logic, and services from virtually any resource.


Our flexible solution and experienced team can meet any legacy modernization need. If you are seeking a clear path to a revitalized mainframe without disrupting people or processes, we encourage you to
