C-EMS comes with several independent modules that can be used separately, depending our project requirements.
By combining the available modules, business and IT developers cover a wide scope of use cases.

NB: C-EMS is divided into modules from the logical point of view, but all of them are packaged into a single installer. When you download the Eclipse Studio all modules are installed, but are enabled or disabled according to the license key you provide.
Connectors / Modules
||To expose all existing Web resources and applications as Web services (either SOAP or REST) that can be called from SOA-enabled systems (like applications, BPM, rules engines, workflows) and RIA applications.
||To clip parts of existing Web applications (including business logic and controls), publish them as Web 2.0 Ajax components and reuse them in portals as tiles (Adobe Mosaic), portlets (JSR #286 Java portals), Web parts (Microsoft SharePoint)
To expose all IBM iSeries, eSeries, BULL, Unix applications as Web services (either SOAP or REST) that can be called from SOA-enabled systems (like applications, BPM, rules engines, workflows) and RIA applications.
To automatically and dynamically capture parts of legacy applications (including underlying business logic), publish them as Web 2.0 Ajax components that can be used in portals as tiles (Adobe Mosaic), portlets (JSR #286 Java portals), Web parts (Microsoft SharePoint), iWidgets (IBM Lotus Mashup Center) or used in RIA applications.
Site Clipper can be used to automate navigation on a specific web site, for example login in, filling forms to access specific pages, click buttons or links to perform some useful actions. When this automation is done, Convertigo will return control to the end user giving him the opportunity to interact with the web site transparently starting from the state left by the previous automation. Site Clipper can also hide (clip) parts of the page or change CSS style sheets for rebranding.
The purpose of Convertigo Mashup Sequencer (CMS) is to "orchestrate" different transactions used by Convertigo to access application sources such as Web Services, RSS syndication feeds, Legacy screens (BULL, IBM), HTML pages, SQL databases. Any kind of Convertigo project (Web integration, Legacy integration, etc.) can be considered as a "source" in the context of a sequence.
Convertigo Mashup Composer is the portal part of Convertigo. This module enables Business application developers to create pages and insert in these pages some Convertigo Widgets issued from all the other convertigo modules. CMC also provides the Convertigo InteractionHub enabling widgets to be wired together. CMC is based on eXo's and Red Hat's GateIn technology.
||An Eclipse-based development IDE used by IT developers to visually build and deploy C-EMS applications and mashables. C-EMS Eclipse Studio is a complete Eclipse 3.4 environment including the C-EMS plugin with all Convertigo menus, toolbars, templates, perspective and docs required to build and deploy C-EMS projects.
Eclipse Studio supports deployment in the Convertigo Cloud.
Convertigo projects can be deployed either on-premises or in the Convertigo Cloud. Both deployment models can be mixed, offering maximum flexibility in terms of IT investments and governance.
||Convertigo projects can be deployed on-premises, on your own servers. In that case, a classical CPU licensing model applies.
||The Convertigo Shared Cloud is a free, public space where customers can easily evaluate the Convertigo products and test their mashups. It is based on Amazon EC2, provides no specific SLA and can be reset at any time when needed. Developers willing to evaluate Convertigo technology can download the Eclipse Studio and deploy in the Shared Cloud by default. There is no need to provision and configure dedicated hardware for this evaluation and there is no need to learn how to deploy in Amazon.
||The Convertigo Shared Cloud is a private, secured, isolated space where customers can easily validate and deploy their Convertigo projects. It relies on Amazon EC2 and has an additional Convertigo monitoring layer adding load balancing, fault tolerance, instance restart, etc. In that case, a susbcription model applies.
