About Terminal Emulation
Today, new mobile computers, terminals or client computers work with graphically attractive and user-friendly touch screens. Although Graphical User Interfaces, (Graphic User Interfaces, GUIs) and web-based applications are widespread nowadays, it is still a challenge for some business processes to be able to work with modern applications and touchscreens.
These companies are still using legacy WMS, MES and ERP systems running on mainframes or older servers. This includes Unix, Linux, IBM mainframes, AS/400 systems, etc. The systems are often based on text-based interfaces and require terminal access to communicate with them.
For years, terminal emulation software has enabled companies to efficiently connect to and work with these legacy systems. But how can you connect modern mobile computers with touchscreens to these systems and take advantage of all the modern new features and an intuitive user interface?
DatAction offers several solutions specifically designed to enable organizations to work with legacy systems and mainframes through modern devices such as mobile computers, tablets, barcode scanners, wearable computers and handheld devices with touchscreens. We do this by using modern tooling to create a graphic intermediate layer between the ‘legacy terminal emulation software’ and the hardware.
