LAS VEGAS—The SCO Group on Monday announced the rollout of several key components of its SCOx Web services initiative, Eric Hughes, the senior director of product management at SCO, said in his keynote address here on Monday.

SCO is focusing its sights on SCOx, which was designed to help customers more fully utilize the benefits of the latest Internet technologies, Hughes said.

In line with that goal, SCO today announced that it would provide SCOx Business Solutions, SCOx Web services and the SCOx WebFace Solution 4.0 combined with Ericom PowerTerm Host Publisher to create a solution to migrate legacy applications to the Web as well as to integrate service-oriented architectures.

It will also unveil the application programming interfaces (APIs) for both SCOsms Web Services and SCObiz Web Services.

"These pieces all provide critical pieces of the SCOx Application Substrate (SAS), a foundation for building next-generation business solutions as well as combining SCOs own Web Services software components and products with partner technologies to create Web Service-enabled functionality for SCO Unix and other operating systems," Hughes said.
