Do you have a sustainable strategy for supporting the latest device platforms with your telnet apps?
Purpose-built mobile computer manufacturers are offering a greater variety of operating systems. However, you must rely on the TE software makers to maintain compatibility with these rapidly evolving OSs. This is an increasingly tall order for them as OS options continue to proliferate. And, maintaining multiple versions of TE across the device populations creates more work for your already stretched IT department. All of this makes it very difficult for you to take advantage of the benefits of these new platforms.
Connect’s telnet to web conversion technology enables any browser to connect to telnet applications, while maintaining the same functionality and usability as traditional TE software. Now that you can use browsers to connect to your telnet apps, you can now adopt any combination of device platforms that best fits your needs, future-proof your UI, eliminate TE licensing and reduce IT costs.
Do you have a plan for cost-effectively migrating from “green screen” to web applications?
The transition from character-based applications to web-based applications happens incrementally across larger organizations. This requires IT to maintain a working knowledge of antiquated TE software installation and maintenance procedures, while also managing the new web application deployment.
Connect’s solution centralizes management of the UI, and provides a single UI for legacy and web applications that both IT and end-users are fully accustomed to. As the transition progresses the UI stays consistent to provide a more seamless migration path for the roll-out of the web application.
All mobile computers come with “stock” browsers built-in to their operating systems. Many others are sold with browsers modified for the industrial environment, included. Connect’s technology enables these free browsers to interface with character-based applications (i.e. Telnet apps), and operate with the same functionality and usability as traditional TE software. This solution lowers software licensing, training and web-application deployment costs.
