Seagull Software (AEX: SEAGULL), a leading provider of high-performance software solutions that transform legacy business applications into service-oriented architecture (SOA) assets, will exhibit and present during the HP Technology Forum 2006 held in Houston TX, September 17 - 22 at the George R. Brown Convention Center.
"As a member of both Encompass and the HP Developer & Solution Partner Program, Seagull Software is committed to providing integration solutions for this distinguished audience,' said Kim Addington, executive vice president and chief marketing officer of Seagull Software. "The HP Technology Forum gathers OpenVMS professionals who are looking to combine valuable, domain-rich VT applications with the latest technologies. Seagull Software offers unique and powerful solutions that enable OpenVMS applications to deliver tremendous new value to the enterprise, and we're really excited to share them with the OpenVMS community at the event," she concluded.
Greg Mummah, Product Manager at Seagull Software will speak on Tuesday, September 19 at 3:30 during the Vendor Theater presentations. His session entitled, 'The Cure for VT Application Integration & GUI Headaches' will discuss how to overcome some of the limitations of valuable, domain-rich OpenVMS applications that have VT terminal interfaces. The presentation identifies two common headaches: Green-screen user interfaces and SOA integration. LegaSuite(R) from Seagull Software is prescribed as the definitive cure. By exposing VT processes as SOA Web services for integration, and replacing green screens with a Web or Windows GUI, headaches quickly subside. No changes are required to the host application and little or no coding.
Seagull Software's recently-announced LegaSuite 5.0 platform will be shown at the Technology Exchange.
Seagull Software also offers BlueZone -- the faster, thinner terminal emulator for 3270, 5250, VT and FTP. Many companies are making the switch from Attachmate EXTRA!, IBM Personal Communications, NetManage Rumba and WRQ Reflection to BlueZone, which can cut maintenance costs up to 83%.
