New MitemView 5.3 Simplifies Bringing Core Business Processes to the Web

Enhanced Java support, innovative security features, and new automation tools demonstrate MITEM's continued product leadership and technology vision.

MENLO PARK, Calif., December 18, 2000 - MITEM Corporation, a leading provider of legacy integration software for conducting real-time e-Business, today announced the January 2001 availability of MitemView 5.3. As the demand for Web-enabled business processes increases, demand has equally intensified for those features and functions that simplify routine implementation and management tasks. Additionally, the more value-added processes an organization makes available over the Internet, the more important security infrastructure becomes. MITEM is satisfying this demand with MitemView 5.3 by providing innovative security features, new automation tools, and full support for the Java language.

"The release of MitemView 5.3 is a significant event for all participants in the MITEM ecosystem," said Martin Fincham, MITEM's vice president of marketing. "e-Business projects dominate our pipeline as we enter 2001, and the enhanced features and functions of this major product release will contribute greatly to our customers e-Business integration success".

Integration servers often reside outside of the corporate firewall to be accessible by customers, partners and suppliers. This creates a potential security risk when the legacy system, or systems, must be accessible through the firewall. MITEM has closed this potential loophole by developing MitemView Server Tunneling (MVST), a standard product option in this release. Server Tunneling creates a "split" integration server that has two parts - an inner and an outer server with a secure tunnel between them. MVST uses a proprietary protocol to create, maintain and terminate the tunnel, and to forward inbound user requests through the tunnel from the outer server to the inner server for processing. Communication between the split servers is automatic and seamless, requiring no additional programming or development. By only exposing legacy system interfaces to the inner server, the potential for a serious security breach is diminished.

Being previewed in MitemView 5.3 is the first tool in MITEM's new family of productivity assistants that are designed to simplify routine implementation and management tasks. ProStart, a Wizard-style tool, uses pre-built templates to automatically generate the foundation of a MitemView-based application. MITEM has identified the common applications that its customers develop; like Web Integration Servers or TIBCO Mainframe Adaptors. For each style of application the collective knowledge of MITEM's engineers, consultants, third-party implementers and business partners is cast in a ProStart template. After using ProStart, a MitemView developer has a fully functional system by adding their custom integration control and business logic. The net result is faster time-to-market while maintaining a high degree of quality in the application design. This best practice approach is in stark contrast to other vendor offerings that are restricted to generic code generators, which produce output to the lowest common denominator.
