Speaker:Carole Miner, IBM Rochester MN

Many iSeries shops are trying to move toward refacing their existing applications. Moving them to the Web. Putting them in a GUI. But while there never seemed to be any tools in the past, now there seem to be so many. They are confused and bewildered. Should I use HATS or WebFacing? Client Access or HATS LE? Host Integration or Host on Demand? And that's before they even consider the various partner solutions like Seagull and Jacada and Look Software. This session will take an objective view of all of these tools side by side and spell out the pros and cons of the tools, helping you boil the list down to the best tool for your situation.
