Ericom corporate overview

Ericom Software, Inc. develops a complete range of host-application access solutions for multiple platforms and systems. These solutions give organizations the ability to easily integrate Web and wireless functionality into legacy systems and provide the foundation for strategic IT initiatives such as customer relationship management (CRM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) deployments. With these capabilities, organizations can take advantage of the latest technologies while avoiding the costly, risky, and time-consuming task of redeveloping or modifying legacy applications.

Ericom has sold more than 5 million licenses of its software in more than 45 countries. The company has offices in the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Italy and Israel, as well as an extensive network of distributors and partners throughout North America, Europe, Asia, and the Far East.

Ericom and HP started their business and technology relationship in 1996 when Ericom PowerTerm host-access solutions were included in the HP PATHWORKS 32 connectivity solution. Today, Ericom products are an integral part of the HP strategy to enable applications running on HP systems for Web- and wireless-based delivery.

"HP is Ericom's largest partner and we are very excited by their decision to standardize on Itanium 2®-based Integrity servers. With this announcement, we expect HP to bring their proven mission-critical operating systems to new applications, which will help expand our business even further. This is great for Ericom since our focus is Web and wireless enabling of host systems including HP OpenVMS, Tru64 UNIX, and NonStop Himalaya servers," says Eran Heyman, Ericom Founder and CEO.

PowerTerm Host Publisher

Integrity server certified
AlphaServer system ready

PowerTerm Host Publisher is an e-business integration solution that ties Internet, intranet, and extranet front-end solutions to the transaction processing and business logic of applications running on back-end legacy systems. Designed for easy, efficient, and secure access to mission-critical legacy applications, PowerTerm Host Publisher addresses the growing demand for organizations to enable legacy applications with Web and wireless functionality.

Key benefits:

  • Businesses can leverage their investment in host legacy systems with no changes to existing business logic and host applications
  • Organizations can repurpose data from disparate legacy applications to create a unified e-business solution
  • Training and operational costs are minimal, because PowerTerm Host Publisher integrates with industry-standard development tools
  • Corporations can choose to integrate only part of an application, business process, or module, which substantially reduces project time
  • Interfaces and tools can customize front ends that reflect the way users work on a range of devices, including wireless or handheld

PowerTerm Host Publisher offers HP VAX, AlphaServer, and Integrity server customers a new world of opportunities by combining the unprecedented performance of HP infrastructure with the robustness and simplicity of PowerTerm Host Publisher for Web-enabling and business transaction processing.

Ericom Software is dedicated to creating an environment that is comfortable and problem-free for HP customers making the transition to Itanium. PowerTerm Host Publisher supports the migration and redeployment of legacy systems-the backbone of any organization-from VAX systems, to AlphaServer systems, to Itanium 2-based Integrity servers.

PowerTerm WebConnect Enterprise

Integrity server certified
AlphaServer system ready

PowerTerm WebConnect Enterprise is a Secure Socket Layer (SSL), server-based computing solution for Windows and legacy application access that provides secure local and remote access to enterprise applications running on HP OpenVMS and Windows Terminal Server 2002/2003.
