JSB Announces INTRAnet Jazz; A Corporate Revolution in Viewing and Accessing Information.

SCOTTS VALLEY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 6, 1996--JSB Corporation announced the the first integrated Intranet suite, INTRAnet Jazz.

Designed to deliver the benefits of Internet technologies into corporate organizations, INTRAnet Jazz contains both client and server components. An HTML web based interface, 'The Kiosk' is provided for Windows 16 and 32 bit clients, and includes 'AlphaBrowser' which supports terminal based servers. The components of INTRAnet Jazz represent a revolutionary means of accessing information behind the company firewall that is direct, fast, and efficient.

Steve Purdham, managing director for JSB, said "In today's competitive business environment, rapid, effective communication is the key to success. INTRAnet Jazz takes advantage of highly robust, low cost, proven Internet technology to deliver all of an organization's information resources to the desktop, with minimal time, cost and effort."

The INTRAnet Jazz Client provides an integrated suite of Windows 95 and Windows NT tools for Intranet access, including a web browser. It enables Windows users to eliminate the complexity of Intranet access by presenting a unified interface to all services and resources.

Designed and written from the ground up, for 32bit windows platforms, INTRAnet Jazz Client takes full advantage of technologies such as OLE and multimedia. For example, a web document referenced on a remote database can be visualized in a terminal window, and accessed by a single click. An embedded reference to a remote file in a terminal or mail window can be downloaded automatically.

The Kiosk interface, which comes with INTRAnet Jazz Client, is HTML based and can be customized to meet customer needs. This is particularly helpful for companies who want to take advantage of their PC desktop investment but do not want the complexity of a Windows interface. The Kiosk provides interfaces that are consistent across platforms, increasing user productivity and decreasing training overhead.

The INTRAnet Jazz Server delivers rich hypermedia information across the enterprise. It combines a high-performance communications server and proxy server in one. The INTRAnet Jazz Server is extensible and portable to meet the demands made of a corporate web server. The AlphaBrowser supports server terminals by providing a customizable menu driven user interface. This interface provides popup menus and dialog boxes while supporting popular Internet utilities like ftp, News, Gopher and Telnet services.

INTRAnet Jazz Client with the Kiosk is available across Windows 3.x, Windows 95 and NT. INTRAnet Jazz Server with the AlphaBrowser is currently available for Windows NT, IBM AIX and SCO UNIX. Additional server platforms will rollout over the next three months.
