MITEM's flagship product, MitemView, provides application integration to and from Unisys mainframes and server-based or desktop Windows applications. MitemView, a plug-in to VB, JAVA, C# and VB.NET applications, is a streamlined, non-invasive way to capture Unisys application interfaces to incorporate into projects from the simplest to the most complex - all real-time, high performance, and fail-safe. MITEM enables organizations that run on Unisys platforms to enhance, extend and integrate such systems, making them active participants in new applications and in service-oriented architectures. MitemView non-invasively integrates systems via the development of composite applications that allow systems to share critical data and automate business processes.
MitemView's robust, proven technology is implemented in smaller organizations as well as mission critical environments. Unisys implementations of MitemView include the US Air Force, S1 Corporation and Commonwealth of Virginia.
Unisys Legacy Modernization
Unisys has an extensive background in mainframe-class systems and is still a major player in high performance server installations. Many businesses still run Unisys systems with mission-critical applications and depend on the reliability of the Unisys platform. But, as with many mainframe systems of the day, the Unisys applications were never designed to integrate with other computer systems. In fact, the only interface to the system was that of the end-user, through the terminal/workstation devices. Having developed and optimized legacy systems for decades, enterprises are now looking for ways to further capitalize on their significant investments by reusing, repurposing, and integrating these systems into new web-based and composite applications, SOA and other IT modernization initiatives.
Legacy modernization is a process designed to enhance business by providing new methods for software interfacing, increased platform flexibility and functional improvements that enable your business to compete effectively in today’s on-demand world. MitemView is the tool that provides you the leverage you need for your legacy applications to simplify end-user access and streamline business processes.
Integrating Unisys-based Applications with MitemView
The applications residing on the Unisys mainframes were written to support specific terminal types, and the transport of information to and from those terminals and the Unisys mainframe utilize what is referred to today as the terminal data stream (e. UTS and T27). This terminal data stream, a “message”, is the only ubiquitous, non-invasive application interface provided by such a legacy application. MitemView utilizes this data stream as an application interface.
This means that applications that run on Unisys systems can now be integrated, non-invasively and in real-time, with new applications whether they are composite applications, packaged or web-based. These applications include:
- Web-to-host solutions
- Message brokering and message transformation
- Composite application development
- Service oriented architecture (SOA)
- Web services
- User interface development
- Business process transformation
- Workflow re-engineering
Through a JAVA, .NET or Visual Basic application, the MitemView API processes the UTS or T27 terminal data streams of the Unisys applications. MitemView supports any Unisys hardware, operating system or applications through the UTS or T27 terminal data streams. Even integrating with MAPPER has been proven to be trouble-free for MitemView.

Make no mistake – MitemView is not a screen-scraping tool like you typically find from terminal emulation vendors. Unlike screen-scraping tools, MitemView, through its unique message processing system, allows integration for Unisys applications to be achievable, predictable and simple while preserving the high performance of the Unisys mainframe. Bottom line...Projects – even those involving the most complex application integration - are less expensive and delivered quicker when using the MitemView technology over any other alternative approach.
How Do We Prove that MitemView Works For You?
With MitemView, there are no changes or modifications that are needed for the Unisys application(s), leaving your legacy assets in tact. And, with MitemView, the most complex, composite applications can be built quicker and attain more predictable results than any other non-invasive integration tool. The proof is a phone call away. When one of our pre-sales consultants comes to your site, at no cost to you, he will build a robust proof of concept application that will assure you that MitemView works effectively in your Unisys environment and is the right choice for your legacy modernization project.
