Despite the predictions of the demise of the mainframe, users are finding that its performance, reliability, security, and manageability are more important than ever. As a result, mainframe installations are experiencing double-digit growth, and exponential additions to the data, users, and complexity they manage.  However, despite all its strengths, the mainframe environment has not had easy access to the full benefit of web-based business intelligence applications, interfaces, and the ease of use offered by non-mainframe systems. 

 

Viador now changes that, bringing the most advanced web-based business intelligence to leverage the mainframe environment natively.  Now, Viador for z/OS provides a native solution for easy access to data reporting and analytics to applications and data hosted on your mainframe.  Any web browser can now be a secure, interactive, graphical view to your data, using advanced tabular and graphical displays to make even the most complex data easy to understand and analyze.  All this is natively from within your z/OS system, fully leveraging all your skills and the capabilities you have come to expect from mainframe-class environments.
