In today’s fast-paced world of back-and-forth data communications, older technologies aren’t enough to help companies operate as efficiently as their executives would like. Prior to deploying TPS/NetWork File Manager (NFM) from TPS Systems, Wakefern Food Corporation used System Network Architecture (SNA) and NetView* Distribution Manager (NVDM) on an IBM System z9* Enterprise Class (System z9 EC) server for much of its data- communications requirements.
The NFM framework actually resides on the UNIX server, but we can view the file transfers, maintain NFM configuration information and manage file-transfer schedules using Internet Explorer.” —Jim Murphy, Senior Systems Programmer, Wakefern CISD
