Companies looking for enterprise mobile solutions that bring a higher degree of development productivity, as well as better functionality, are finding what they need in Uniface. A product of Compuware (News - Alert), Uniface is bringing rapid application development for enterprises.
As highlighted on this Compuware page, the company has more than four decades of experience in developing software for businesses. It now has more than 7,000 customers around the globe, including some of the biggest names, including Facebook, USA Today, Google and Adobe (News - Alert) to name just a few.
Compuware’s latest release of Uniface lets enterprises take on the demand that companies are experiencing in developing secure and complex web 2.0 applications, which can be deployed anywhere. Many companies have their eye on the cloud today and Uniface is perfectly suited for the cloud.
Enterprise mobile solutions require enterprise-capable software. Taking on the right software will facilitate faster deployment of applications as well as integration with existing applications. Strategic IT assets are also better adjusted with an enterprise capable solution such as that delivered by Uniface.
The secret behind Uniface’s success in enterprise mobile solutions lies in three main areas. First Uniface has the tools built into it that allows Compuware to guarantee upward mobility. Companies no longer need to invest major dollars in moving their applications to better technology because Uniface is designed for maximum compatibility.
Second, Uniface is designed to be easy and inexpensive to maintain, which allows productivity rates that are second to none. And third, regardless of the operating system, Uniface is technology independent. Migration is not an issue with Uniface, and clients don’t have to change their applications when they do jump to another system.
The scripting language in the latest version has also been enhanced, which means that code execution efficiencies are more efficient. MS Windows Graphical User Interface is now further supported with Uniface. Also enhanced are the Web Services, which means the applications have more capabilities to handle complex data.
Uniface users report that they are most impressed with the speed at which their applications can be deployed. Mashups and integration with other SaaS (News - Alert)/PaaS offerings have been a frequent positive remark made in various forums. The low cost and zero maintenance provided through Uniface is also something reviewers are readily reporting with the enterprise mobile solutions.
