Neon Systems Inc., a vendor of mainframe integration software in Sugarland, Texas, announced Tuesday that it has
acquired InnerAccess Technologies Inc. InnerAccess, of Toronto, sells one-step configuration software for mainframe Web services.
Neon said it would integrate a mainframe Web services interface to its Shadow software which integrates mainframes with Java and .NET platforms.
Neon's 250 customers will have access to InnerAccess' products including: z/Services Web Services Client, which invokes Web services from CICS, IMS, IDMS and batch mainframe applications; z/Services Transformer, which publishes CICS, IMS, IDMS applications as Web services using SOAP and WSDL; z/Services Components, which does introspection-based Web enablement for CICS, IMS, IDMS applications without the need of terminal emulation or screen-scraping; z/Services Studio, which are developer tools that Web-enable CICS, IMS, IDMS applications as ASP or JSP pages; zServices OCA Extenders, which extends connectivity options for Advantage CA-IDMS.
The two companies expect the acquisition to be complete by June 30 at a cost of $2.4 million and more than 400,000 Neon shares of stock.
