WaveMaker Revolutionizes Custom Application Development and Delivery

Date 2014/9/16 10:22:33 | Topic: Product News

WaveMaker has announced WaveMaker Enterprise, licensed software that enables organizations to run their own end-to-end application platform as a service (aPaaS) for rapidly building and efficiently running custom apps. WaveMaker Enterprise is the only commercially available rapid API app development and deployment (RAADD) software integrated with a Docker container-architected aPaaS. WaveMaker Enterprise adds middleware and its Docker-architected PaaS to extend WaveMaker Studio, the company's free open-source development platform, which has garnered over two million downloads and 30,000 loyal users around the world.
Now, with WaveMaker Enterprise, enterprises can foster agility and innovation by enabling instant, end-to-end custom web app creation and management by professional and non-professional developers and development teams. It enables developers and business users to work with standard enterprise-grade technologies to immediately create apps that can be easily extended or customized. Those apps can consume APIs, visualize data for insights, and automatically support multi-device responsive interfaces. At the same time, WaveMaker Enterprise enables IT to optimize and improve management of its app infrastructure by providing a GUI console and capabilities that leverage the power of Docker containerization.

For years, enterprises have faced increasing competition, change, and regulation. Now, they also have to satisfy demanding, "consumerized" employees and social-media-empowered customers. To thrive in this environment, companies need agility, democratized decision-making, and innovation -- and they need custom apps that implement their new ideas. But building and running custom multi-device apps is difficult, due to limitations of budget, time, skill sets, and other resources. Too often, apps get stuck in the IT queue while valuable time is lost.

WaveMaker Enterprise solves this challenge: it enables business users and developers to bypass that queue by building and running custom apps on their CIO-sanctioned infrastructure, avoiding "shadow IT" problems; and it helps IT departments manage those custom enterprise apps. WaveMaker Enterprise supports hybrid environments so that organizations can deploy apps in the public cloud or on private infrastructure, and deploy containers on top of virtual machines or on bare metal. Easy click-to-deploy and release management workflows mean that very little deployment or operations expertise is necessary to get a custom app up and running.
