ApplinX is a server-based technology that provides Web-based applications an efficient, robust and easy way to access and integrate core system applications' data and transactions, without changing the core systems. ApplinX exposes core systems and encapsulates them into standard programmatic components of the new selected environment (Web services, .NET, J2EE, XML). These components can then be used as advanced building blocks in any modern platform - for new applications or existing ones (e.g. CRM applications). This way, core back-office systems can be integrated into new strategic IT platforms, and the workflow can be re-engineered to suit a more streamlined and efficient task-oriented and role-based approach.
