Microsoft (MSFT) and Wall Data (WALL) today introduced a software bundle to jump-start intranet development in large companies.

The SNA Intranet Starter Kit includes Microsoft's SNA Server host connectivity software and Wall Data's Arpeggio Live tool for publishing host data to Web sites.

The companies said the kit will let big companies publish live mainframe-based data to intranet sites and make the data available to users through Web browsers.

The kit lets developers combine mainframe data, client-server applications, and files from desktop applications such as Microsoft Word into a single intranet application.

The kit will be available by month's end, priced at $3,995.
