Credit Suisse has implemented Dublin-based Iona's Orbix E2A application server platform (ASP) to support its larger e-business efforts.
Credit Suisse has deployed the platform to consolidate and integrate its back-end mainframe OS/390 legacy systems with a variety of new front-end applications. The package enables the design and rapid integration of applications via a standards-based interface, making them interoperable across mainframe systems and providing staff and customers with real-time access to data.
Andreas Manz, head of IT systems engineering, member of the management committee technology and operations, Credit Suisse, comments: "By adopting open standards technology we are protecting our legacy IT assets while also ensuring the scalability of the platform over time in meeting ongoing technology and systems integration requirements."
Credit Suisse has been using Iona's Corba technology since 1998 to integrate mainframe-based applications with Web-based systems.
