Hummingbird Communications Ltd. announced the first release of Hummingbird e-Gateway, a portal-integrated, HTML, Web-to-Host connectivity solution. Hummingbird e-Gateway allows enterprise information from IBM Mainframe, AS/400, Linux and UNIX application screens to be published and viewed in custom, graphical screens to anyone using a Web browser or the Hummingbird EIP (Enterprise Information Portal). Acting as a bridge between host systems and users, Hummingbird e-Gateway translates 3270, 5250 and VT220 data streams into HTML pages, allowing organizations to publish critical information on a corporate intranet or extranet, reducing software and administrative costs. Hummingbird e-Gateway beta is available immediately. For a beta copy of Hummingbird e-Gateway, visit http://www.hummingbird.com/egatewaypr.

Hummingbird e-Gateway will be shipping in May 2000 at a price of $15,995 for 50 users and includes the Jump and Tap servers.

Prices listed are in US currency.
