What HATS can do for your business

IBM® Host Access Transformation Services (HATS) extends mission critical terminal applications to the web, mobile, portal, rich client, or as standard SOAP or RESTful web services without touching the existing application. No rewriting, refactoring, or access to application source code is required.

This low risk HATS transformation can:

  • reduce training costs
  • increase end user productivity and satisfaction
  • enable re-use of proven business logic in new applications.


Dynamic user interface transformation

Use HATS tunable default rendering and screen customization capability to get all the screens of your existing application rendered with a new, intuitive user interface.

Web services creation

Access a wizard-based flow recorder and visual editor to create SOAP or RESTful web services without programming.

Intuitive application navigation

Simplify and customize app navigation with macros and screen combinations, simplify app input with global variables, and use business logic to augment the terminal app with data from other sources.

Extensive deployment and access options

Deploy apps to web, portal, and Eclipse RCP runtime environments, and allow access by a large variety of web browsers, including mobile. Choose the option(s) that meet your business needs.
