Title: Delivering Services Oriented Architectures for Distributed Host Systems
Abstract: This session introduces you to the new technologies and tools planned for Host Integration Server 2006. Whether your existing IBM mainframe and midrange host applications are modern componentized business logic interface programs, or older programs, the new Transaction Integrator tools and runtime for dotNET allow you to extend these investments to new solutions based on WSE-enabled Web services. Using the enhanced Managed Data Providers for DB2 or new Managed Data Provider for Host Files, with their integrated design tools for Visual Studio .NET 2005, IT organizations can more easily develop .NET Framework-enabled smart client programs, XML Web services, or simply access the information directly from within Office productivity applications such as Excel and InfoPath. Finally, this release of Host Integration Server offers improved operational tools for monitoring and managing your deployed solutions.
