Take an API-led approach to making critical business applications easier to connect

                Modernize core applications

As big data, mobile, social media and the cloud continue to revolutionize IT environments, you need to integrate new technologies with your core mainframe applications to drive growth. Accelerate innovation by building on what works.

By taking a non-invasive approach to integrating your core systems with new technologies, our mainframe integration solution lets you cost effectively reuse existing applications to accelerate your strategic initiatives.

                Unlock mainframe & legacy data

Transform mainframe and legacy data into standard SQL for easy access and integration with data lakes, business intelligence platforms, analytics tools and the cloud.

                Reuse your business logic 

Connect to new channels, services and apps, on-premises or in the cloud by producing and consuming APIs with COBOL, Assembler, PL/1 and Natural applications.

                Modernize the user experience

Make your app available on web and mobile devices with web terminal emulation or web enablement. Produce APIs from 3270 and 5250 user screen flows.

                    Modernize IBM Z applications with API integration

Being an agile digital enterprise lies in your ability to quickly and easily reuse what already works and build from there, discover how with API Integration.

                Connect your future with mainframe integration

Don’t replace your most valued technologies. Reuse them! New business projects and digital initiatives are driving the need to integrate all enterprise data sources. With systems, databases and applications, you need a way to integrate it all to drive future innovation.

Merge your past and present, while preparing for the future, with mainframe integration. Tie your mainframe applications to the web and cloud—or even social media data sources and applications.

                    Connect your core applications to digital

Learn how to build new without tearing down what already exists, risk-free with a return-to-value in just hours or days. Innovate without expensive rip-and-replace strategies and without modifying valuable legacy code.

                    Create mainframe APIs fast

APIs are fueling the creation of new apps, development of customer-centric services and the delivery of new business models that capitalize on the widespread adoption of cloud, mobile and the Internet of Things. Your mainframe can easily participate. Create REST APIs from your mainframe business logic or user interface with minimal effort. Enrich your mainframe application functionality by consuming APIs from other sources.

                    Integrate IBM Z data for new insights

Your core applications manage massive amounts of valuable data and high-volume transactions. Unlock that data and gain more insights into your customers, channels and business operations. Transform data from Db2®, flat files, Adabas, IMS™, QSAM and VSAM™ into Standard Query Language (SQL) for easy access and integration with data lakes, business intelligence platforms, analytics tools and the cloud.

                    Thrive in a hybrid world

The cloud is your innovation platform. But your trusted system of record is on your IBM Z. The key to keeping both in sync to drive maximum value is integration.

                    Improve workforce productivity & mobility

Make a better connection with the people who use your applications every day. Don’t just eliminate green screens when modernizing your applications, create a better UX by improving processes. With redesigned workflows, intuitive web interfaces and modern apps, your end users will see productivity gains that directly impact your business.
