Profound Logic Software has announced the upcoming release of an enterprise portal for IBM i that will focus on securely tying multiple applications together into one intuitive browser interface. Called Atrium, the portal is the newest addition to Profound Logic's modernization suite of products.
With Atrium, businesses will be able to eliminate green-screen menus that require users to drill-down through several levels of options to access applications or features. Legacy menus can be replaced with easy-to-use navigation menus instead. Choices for these integrated menus include drop-down trees, accordion panels, toolbars, and pull-down menus. Administrators can tailor the menus to individual users or groups. Atrium users can be tied directly to AS/400 user id's or configured as stand-alone users.
Once the improved navigation is implemented, users will be able to effortlessly launch and access their applications securely within a tabbed layout. This layout saves time for users by allowing them to launch multiple applications simultaneously without having to start a new session or back out of applications that have previously been opened.
Atrium helps complete the Profound Logic modernization suite by providing users with a seamless way to integrate all their RPGsp Web applications, Genie-enhanced screens, and iData database views into one location with a single sign-on. Users can also easily integrate other third- party applications, websites, and data, whether these are located on the i or various other platforms.
Profound Logic's reason for creating this new enterprise portal is an effort to help clients develop a strong framework that improves both accessibility and usability of their systems, while insuring the security of the core applications. "Atrium was based on the business needs and requests of our clients" said David Russo, leader of the Atrium product development team. "We worked with several customers who demonstrated a need to redesign the way their end-users navigate between application screens," he explained. "It was also important to our clients that they have more control over user access to the individual applications once they are running on the Web," he said.
