[Perot Systems]

HP application integration partner
"The architecture of the reservation system made it very straight forward to offer the application services to an Internet client. At the same time, ACMS provided the features needed to prevent Internet access from adversely impacting Thrifty's core business processes. As a result, Thrifty was able to quickly open a new channel for reservations without incurring incremental data maintenance expenses, while at the same time maintaining consistency with the call center and airline systems."

Web-enabling current applications
"While we found several solutions, none gave us the comfort level or ease of implementation provided by the HP TP Web Connector software," says Peter Zabasky, Senior Analyst. "It allowed us to use our ACMS system to manage access to production databases. With this tool, we were able to reuse existing ACMS code and develop all our student Web applications in a little over a month. The results have been a tremendous success with our student population."

"Ithaca College has taken a major step forward by providing decentralized access to the college's information systems. Because of this success, we have many more applications, both student and operational, planned for the Web in the near future."
