Product Overview

BlueStar is Windows-based software that XML-enables mainframe without the need of writing code. It is one of the few vendors that can support the full spectrum of challenges on the integration landscape for sharing host application data as XML. BlueStar enables you to manage the impact of the constant change inherent in enterprise applications. It enables you to extend your systems to connect easily with your partners' networks. Whether your strategic goal is to achieve new levels of efficiency in your own business processes, or realize closer collaboration with partners, BlueStar protects your investments in existing technologies. 

Web Services for Integration描述: \\www\e$\cedarweb\images\BlueStarWS.jpg

Application integration with back-end systems is a complex project given the fact that so many systems must interact with each other. By leveraging XML and Web services technologies, BlueStar can instantly tap into key business functions without the need for writing code. It's an extremely cost-effective way to integrate disparate information environments by reusing business functions from existing legacy applications. BlueStar's ability to integrate any host application using a variety of connection methods makes it suitable for different integration options.

  • Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) - The internal integration is grouped under EAI. By supporting a wide range of interfaces to legacy applications, BlueStar can enable any client application to connect with any homegrown application that make it ideal for internal integration projects.
  • Business-to-Business Integration (B2Bi) or Inter-Enterprise Integration (IEI) - Integration extends outside of the organization to link external suppliers. By supporting the industry standards that make up web services, BlueStar unites web systems with enterprise applications and XML sources to speed up integration.
  • Application Migration - BlueStar provide on-the-fly retrieval of values from legacy data and applications so you can quickly see the benefits of integration without having to wait for migration projects to finish. Moreover, because web applications will already be receiving corporate data in XML, you can make seamless transitions to the new platforms when they go online.

Leverage Existing Infrastructure and Technology Investments
Given the current economic environment that focuses on cost savings and consolidation, companies are trying to leverage current investments in application and integration server development platforms. ROI is critical and shorter time frames for the development of solutions are causing companies to look closely at options to decrease maintenance costs and time by utilizing web services technologies.

BlueStar immediately extends the ROI of host transactions within the enterprise while bringing new returns through integration.

  • Universal connectivity eliminate custom coding and high maintenance overhead
  • Simplified management of the integration process lowers operation costs
  • Immediate access to host data speeds returns on migration efforts

Ease of Use
BlueStar can automate integration, adapter development and maintenance to save you up to 50-75% in time and effort over hard coded solutions. Point-and-click interface allows users to browse an application including customized transactions and a variety of interface types and select the transactions that they'd like to publish as Web services. There is no need to customize BlueStar for each host transaction, which makes automated integration a reality. Furthermore, BlueStar does not use proprietary scripting languages and does not require specialized knowledge. All communication with BlueStar uses XML and standard transport mechanisms (e.g., HTTP) -- skills most web developers already have -- eliminating the need for services or additional training.

Mission Critical
BlueStar is proven for its scalability and failover capabilities. BlueStar processes host application data and converts it directly to XML, which drastically reduces the complexity and processing involved. Furthermore, BlueStar works with SSL and digital certificates to ensure the privacy and integrity of your sensitive data and processes. Most importantly, BlueStar has been proven in real-world customer implementations for many years and in some of the most demanding computing environments around.

Universal Connectivity
BlueStar provides a comprehensive set of connectivity solutions for your choice of application server or integration technologies. BlueStar works the same whether you connect your host applications to web services platforms, application servers, or even other host applications. In fact, any application or platform that can use XML will work with BlueStar.
