NetManage, Inc. announced the NetManage Host Services Platform (HSP), which is a set of products and shared services that gives customers unprecedented flexibility and speed of deployment when pursuing host-based business initiatives.  Building on last year's introduction of the Host Access Platform, the Host Services Platform access, presentation and integration software lets customers maximize host systems and easily build them into a service-oriented architecture.

HSP supports the full range of choices that line of business (LOB) and IT managers need when designing and implementing host-based business initiatives. Examples of these choices include delivery channels for an application (desktop, PDA, other client types); the range of publishing methods such as PC-to-host, HTML-to-host and object-to-host; and the full spectrum of host systems that might be accessed (IBM mainframes, IBM and Unix-based computing and ODBC-based databases). In addition to the breadth of choices, HSP provides an end-to-end solution that enables customers to select the products for their immediate host-based applications needs, knowing the investment they make will be preserved and leveraged from one publishing method to the next.

NetManage customers gain the ability to reuse and integrate applications and data running on host systems into new initiatives without interrupting their existing business processes. HSP provides innovative graphical tools for developing applications and services for service oriented architectures, including generating Web services, .NET assemblies, EJBs and other object types for consumption by new business applications. With NetManage HSP, businesses can reuse host logic and data in Web applications, CRM applications, portals and more, thereby maximizing their host assets today and well into the future.
