SmartStream CoHost brings cost-effective ease-of-use and productivity benefits that add value to existing host investments.
SmartStream CoHost presents information to PC desktops in a way that makes it easy to navigate through host-based applications and data, using familiar Windows pull-down menus, toolbars, check-boxes and drop-down lists.
According to Jeff Scherb, CTO for DBS, SmartStream CoHost is ideal for companies planning to migrate gradually to the SmartStream suite of business applications for client/server, or for those considering a partial migration strategy in which end-users will continue to require access to host, PC and server data.
SmartStream CoHost utilizes MitemView messaging middleware technology from MITEM Corporation.
Fast implementation of SmartStream CoHost is provided through a true "out-of-the-box" solution which includes all base host screens delivered as activity windows ready for use.
The Powerbuilder Desktop is included with CoHost and can be used to customize CoHost activity windows and adapt the application functionality and flow to fit specific business requirements.
SmartStream CoHost for Millennium and Expert series General Ledger plus Millennium Currency Management and Query applications are planned for release this summer, with others to follow this fall and continuing through 1997.
Included is complete documentation for the CoHost technical environment and tools, along with an on-line tutorial to prepare end-users for working with the new front-end interface.
