System z Integration

Driven by Principles – Powered by HostBridge

Since its founding, HostBridge has been guided by core principles: understand the real business and technology challenges that drive customers to seek integration solutions, exploit the best tools and technologies IBM System z has to offer, and adopt the most flexible open standards for system integration. Guided by these, we design the highest-performance, highest-fidelity integration software for the mainframe customer.

As technology continues to evolve with new concepts such as cloud computing and customers strive to keep pace, our principles continue to inform our vision and planning. The product directions outlined on this page have been conceived to help customers address real challenges with powerful, flexible, efficient, and economical integration solutions.
