Cloud-Ready Terminal Emulation - Host Access Anywhere, Anytime and Any Device

Cloud Ready Terminal Emulation

Two forces are driving organizations to re-visit how users access mainframe terminal-based applications:
  • The "Bring Your Own Device" invasion
  • Increasing use of Cloud-based I.T. Solutions

The Bring Your Own Device Invasion

As more and more users move both their home devices to work (and their work to their homes), I.T. organizations are increasingly challenged to deliver secure and consistent access to applications. Accessing the mainframe and/or AS400/IBM i terminal applications is vital for many users and Flynet Viewer is the best option today for multi-device, multi-location access.

Cloud-based I.T. Solutions - How to Integrate?

Legacy desktop terminal emulators have been able to use macro scripting with Visual Basic and ActiveX to integrate host data with Microsoft Office and other resources. The new WebFlow Macros feature includes Excel, Word and EMail Plug-Ins to provide the same capability!  But, if you are also interested in Cloud options, such as Google Apps or Microsoft Office 365, Flynet Viewer is the natural choice!
