MITEM Announces Integration Adapters for Unisys

Offering widest range of connectivity to legacy systems, MITEM reaches out to a world where 80% of the largest banks and half the world's insurers employ Unisys solutions

MENLO PARK, Calif., - December 11th, 2001 - MITEM® Corporation, a leading provider of legacy integration software and e-Business solutions announced today the availability of MitemView 5.3.3, providing improved connectivity to Unisys systems. MITEM provides connectivity to the widest range of legacy systems in enterprises today, including IBM, Tandem, Bull, ICL, Digital, UNIX, Data General and Unisys.

Approximately 70% of corporate data processing is still handled by mainframe and midrange systems. The most common platform is IBM with the OS/390 and AS/400 range of servers. But for many enterprises, particularly those in the government, financial services and telecommunications sectors, other legacy platforms are still common and support mission-critical systems.

"Many enterprises have IBM systems but few have only IBM systems," said Martin Fincham, MITEM's vice president of marketing. "There is a world beyond IBM where systems from vendors like Unisys, Compaq and Bull exist. For instance, Compaq's NonStop servers process 66 percent of all credit card transactions and 95 percent of securities transactions worldwide. Likewise, Bull technology is particularly favored by the public sector and can be found in 41 states and 150 agencies."

MitemView enables real-time integration of and between disparate systems without requiring changes or additions to existing applications. Now with the release of MitemView 5.3.3, countless government agencies that utilize Unisys systems can have the most complete solution for extending the investment in their stalwart legacy systems.

The financial services industry will also benefit. Unisys has a strong presence in 80% of the largest banks and half of the world's insurers. Typical applications for MitemView include integrating Unisys systems with CRM applications, Web-enabling Unisys systems and connecting Unisys systems to an EAI infrastructure like TIBCO's ActiveEnterprise.

"MITEM believes that true enterprise integration embraces system diversity, and yet many integration software vendors still only support IBM platforms," said Fincham. "With this latest version of MitemView, we are reconfirming our commitment to providing solutions that handle the widest breadth of application integration challenges faced by Global 2000 companies and public sector entities."

Jim Sinur, Vice President and Research Area Director for Gartner states, "Our clients are telling us that the breadth of integration technologies is rising in importance over time as they create more composite applications and workflows that go across discrete business functions. Vendors that can integrate myriad legacy systems, new functions and rented functions will experience better growth."

About MitemView 5.3.3

This latest release of MitemView enables non-invasive integration with Unisys Series 1100/2200, A-Series and ClearPath systems that support the UTS60 or T27 terminal protocols via TCP/IP. Because MitemView is non-invasive, no changes or additions are required to the Unisys systems. The MitemView Software Development Kit (SDK) is used with Microsoft Visual Basic, Sybase PowerBuilder or Java to create new composite applications that source data from multiple systems. Applications built with MitemView can be deployed in a Desktop, Server, or Web centric architecture and will execute on any 32-bit Windows operating system.

MITEM provides a full range of technical support, education and consulting services.
