It's about flexibility. Flexibility to extend existing business applications to the web. 

It's about being open. Open to develop and employ sophisticated web-based application strategies.

It's about opportunity. Opportunity to maximize business opportunities by leveraging internal data.

It's about OpenPoint®, a complete application technology that becomes the foundation of your web-based business solution. OpenPoint provides the necessary infrastructure for building and delivering sophisticated web-enabled applications or for developing and extending the web capabilities of your existing business applications. 

OpenPoint is comprised of two interrelated components: the OpenPoint Enterprise Manager and the OpenPoint Application Engine. Together, they form a complete web-empowering architecture that enables your organization to develop and extend its business solutions by employing OpenPoint's methodology and tools.

A Framework for Web-based Applications
Web-based applications extend and complement an existing IT infrastructure.
However, proliferation of multiple web-based solutions complicate data access rules. OpenPoint provides an application framework that ensures independent access to a broad range of back-end database types through a single browser motif.

Web Enabling Legacy and Client/Server Applications
With OpenPoint's web application framework and specific development toolkits, web empowerment can be facilitated in less time and for significantly less cost. IT organizations can focus attention on GUI consistency rather than on back-end database inconsistencies. OpenPoint effectively masks the disparate faces of your legacy and client/server applications, allowing your organization to leverage IT investments while extending their capabilities.

Developing Web-based Applications
OpenPoint can help enable and extend both existing and non-web capabilities, as well as provide invaluable assistance with web application development. Building a web application without a framework requires a significant amount of effort to create features like menus, security, and report viewers that are necessary but do not contribute directly to achieving your business goals. OpenPoint allows your organization to focus valuable project resources on developing value-added functions, not reinventing the wheel. The technology enables your organization to deliver web-based applications faster and for less cost than other development approaches. Regardless of your business model or strategic business objectives, OpenPoint provides your organization with an unlimited ability to build many different types of web-based business solutions that run on a common application engine.
