Partnership between EBSCO an H+H Software GmbH

Hidden Automatic Navigator (HAN) from H+H Software Now Includes Direct Linking to EBSCO Discovery Service™

EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) and H + H Software GmbH, the producer of the e-resource management software Hidden Automatic Navigator (HAN), announce a new partnership to provide expanded services to mutual customers. The partnership will enable mutual customers of EBSCO Discovery Service™ (EDS) and HAN to access content in a more seamless and simplified method.

With the new partnership between, authorized library users will be able to access their library’s online resources, including EDS, from any location, including remotely. The integration partnership enables HAN to authenticate the user via the library system or Shibboleth independently from the location and provides access to articles. HAN uses an own proxy URL for each resource. By using the new HAN Web-API, the proxy URLs can now be retrieved automatically in the background, creating a more simplified way for users to access content and reducing the library’s administrative effort.

H+H Software GmbH Managing Director, Michael Etscheid says: "The linking of HAN to EBSCO Discovery Service is a great enhancement for users. From now on, libraries are able to offer remote access to the content in EDS without any additional effort. This optimally combines the advantages of both systems. The statistical reports that can be created with HAN will also help libraries to further improve their offer."

EBSCO Information Services Senior Manager, Library Service Engineering, Europe & Latin America, Claus Wolf says "This development shows how fast and flexible EBSCO can respond to customer requirements with the help of its Library Service Engineers. We greatly appreciate the collaboration with H + H Software GmbH as we have been able to drive the integration forward so libraries can take advantage of the benefits of both services."

NetMan HTML5 Client replaces the Java RDP WebClient!

Modern browsers stop supporting JAVA-Browser-Plugins

After a lot of modern browsers stopped supporting JAVA-Browser-Plugins by now, Oracle will stop providing support for the JAVA-Browser-plugin at the end of this year. This means, that from that point in time the access to your IT-network and the NetMan server with the NetMan RDP Java Webclient will no longer be possible.

We offer a cross-platform and safe alternative with the new NetMan HTML5 Client. The NetMan HTML5 Client enables especially for mobile end devices an optimal web-based access to applications, media and contents.

Thus we strongly recommend uninstalling Virtual CD 10 before you begin the update to Windows 10..

Once the Windows 10 update has been completed, you can reinstall Virtual CD and use it as you always have. Your existing CD images remain unaffected by the update and can be used after you have reinstalled Virtual CD.

No more support from Microsoft!

As of July 14, 2015, Microsoft is no longer offering support services for Windows Server 2003. If you still have Server 2003 installations, you should know that no more patches or other security updates will be forthcoming from Microsoft – leaving your IT infrastructure open to possible security breaches.

We can help you find a solution that lets you migrate your existing IT infrastructure to the newest generation of Remote Desktop Session Hosts while protecting your system from cyber-attacks and malware, and keeping pace with the latest software on the market.

Our free consultation includes a presentation of the latest features in NetMan Desktop Manager and the new HTML5 Client. HTML5 expands the range of options for remote access to your applications, media and other content, to give you the flexibility increasingly required of today&##39;s IT infrastructures.

We would be happy to show you the possibilities available for maintaining IT security, and prepare a detailed offer for your individual system landscape.
