HostBridge Technology


Strategic Partners

As a provider of mainframe integration and optimization software, HostBridge Technology maintains close relationships with the leaders in mainframe computing. Representing the cornerstone of our partner strategy, our collaborative partnerships with IBM® and CA help ensure that HostBridge brings powerful, flexible, uniquely precise integration solutions to our customers around the world.



HostBridge integration software was conceived and developed specifically to extend IBM CICS® to new users – employees, partners, and customers – and to integrate CICS seamlessly with any distributed information system. Since our founding in 2000, HostBridge has maintained a very close and cordial relationship with IBM to ensure that we deliver the best integration solutions for CICS applications and System z® data resources.

An IBM Business Partner, HostBridge regularly consults and collaborates with the z/OS® team and the CICS group at IBM Hursley. HostBridge is a CICS Beta Partner and certified in the Ready for Rational program. IBM and HostBridge have cooperated in developing a number of integrative technologies, including an API for the Service Flow Modeler component of Rational Developer for System z. To enable these joint efforts, IBM regularly provides HostBridge with access to CICS source code. HostBridge is also licensed by IBM to zIIP-enable its software products.

IBM and HostBridge also work together to communicate, educate, and inform. We frequently host joint webinars and webcasts, as well as presentations at industry events. To bring readers the latest news and content, we also share space regularly in CICS Spotlight, the monthly newsletter on all things CICS from Enterprise Systems Media.
