This article reports on the launching of the Active Windows Integrator (AWI) solution by the software company NDL in Great Britain. The solution will ensure savings for organisations which have invested both time and money in traditional DOS, Windows and Windows Client Server technology but are having to look at ways of e-enabling their systems. Product director Iain Pickering said most businesses know how well old applications work and that they can reliably manage huge amounts of information. Replacing them with untested web-capable versions often seems costly. AWI is a Microsoft server-based engine that communicates with Windows Client applications and is able to lift information, enter data and update records, quickly, securely and under the full control of a web application. There are no changes to the back-office applications and data integrity is assured. It handles the 32-bit Windows server platforms, Windows NT, 2000 and XP. Even some 16-bit applications can be managed, giving true legacy integration. A useful benefit is that as well as not replacing systems, users get more efficient use of the technology. The system minimises the number of copies required and may reduce licencing and support costs.
