IT organizations maximize their effectiveness by being able to distribute applications across platforms, operating systems and the Internet with a minimum of programming and maintenance effort. Frequently, new business requirements require enhancement to core application capability driving change across delivery channels, the user base and business operations. IT needs a better way to bring existing systems together to share data and business logic with backoffice and business users. By leveraging a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) using Web Services it is possible to integrate existing business functionality with other systems to act as strategic assets with proven business logic, accessible to end users and
applications. Xcentrisity Business Information Server (BIS) gives application developers the ability to build Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) applications that incorporate existing business data and logic freely mixed with the latest web languages and tools.
The Xcentrisity Business Information Server is a web server environment that manages application sessions and makes them available via any web browser or other web user agent that is granted access to the BIS server. Xcentrisity BIS means remote users can access data, perform application functions and execute service programs on single or multiple servers located anywhere. For example, a sales
force can check order status for customers during the day and enter new orders in the evening as they travel. Emergency room doctors can read patient histories on primary care physician files in another region and primary care physicians can see insurance claims status. Bank customers can see account status, pay bills, transfer funds and make investments from the comfort of their own homes, and taxpayers
can access public records from anywhere. With BIS, any modern application architecture, function and appearance is now possible.
