GT Software Enhances Mainframe Integration

GT Software, an enterprise integration vendor, has made enhancements to Ivory Service Architect, a key component of its Ivory Suite. Ivory Service Architect provides application and data integration tools to simplify and accelerate access to business-critical, mainframe applications, data and processes.

Ivory Service Architect is intended to extend valuable mainframe applications and data through web services, without the need to generate or change code. This is accomplished without expanding costly MIPS usage, the vendor stated.

“With the newest capabilities of Ivory Service Architect v5.0, organizations can more fully support mobile initiatives and address modern integration needs, getting the most out of their mainframe assets without writing additional code,” said Adam Redd, CTO for GT Software.

Features of Ivory Service Architect v5.0 include enhanced support for REST/JSON Web services, which enables mobile applications to interface with mainframe applications. The new release also includes a test tool that supports all message formats, and ensures full operability of developed services and ability to test Web services before deployment, versus manual testing.
