Century-National Insurance Uses Verastream Host Integrator for B2B Solution | Attachmate

www.attachmate.com [cached]

When Lou Balicki, vice president of information systems for Century-National, attended a recent Gartner conference, he wasn't expecting to encounter a solution with so many legacy integration possibilities. But when he saw a demonstration of Attachmate® Verastream® Host Integrator, he said, "holy mackerel, that could solve at least a dozen different problems in my IT environment."

...
Balicki immediately saw that, with Verastream, the company could make the critical applications residing on their HP e3000 available for easy web access by their business partners. Furthermore, he realized that service-enabling these legacy investments would take his SOA strategy to the next level.
A subsequent proof of concept by Attachmate convinced Balicki and software development manager Saro Hamamah that Verastream was the right tool for the job.
...
"The bottom line for us is that all of these capabilities make it easier for our partners to do business with us," Balicki said.
...
Balicki said that the IT team is also eyeing Verastream to enhance the company's HP-based policy endorsement processes.
"The beauty of Verastream is that it's noninvasive; you don't have to modify the legacy system," said Balicki. "In the insurance industry we can't afford to risk the integrity of our critical legacy data."
Single-Vendor Host Solutions, Based on Customer Satisfaction
Balicki said there are few software vendors with Attachmate's commitment to excellent customer service: "If we can't resolve a problem easily, Attachmate is there for us right away, and that's how business should be done."
This level of service actually comes as no surprise to Balicki, though. He reported that Century-National has been using Attachmate terminal emulation products since he started working with the company some 20 years ago ("when we got rid of those Hazeltine 1520 terminals"). Century-National uses Reflection® for HP to connect Windows users to their HP host as well as Reflection® for the Web to provide secure browser-based host connectivity.
As a satisfied Attachmate customer, Balicki said standardizing on Reflection products has had many benefits, including easy administration and troubleshooting. He added, "Reflection might be more expensive, but it's worth every penny in reliability and up-to-date features."
Although Century-National has plans for eventual phase-out of their HP e3000, Balicki said the company is determined to leverage its rich stores of data and business logic for at least five years. "Verastream and Reflection are helping us get the most out of that legacy host investment as we plan for the future," he said.
