Reston, VA, May 29, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Software AG reinforced their continued commitment to the Adabas database and Natural application development environment today, announcing a series of roadshow events showcasing new advances in the technology platform. The roadshow program will start with New York, Austin, and Sacramento in June before moving on to other US cities, Canada and Latin America in the second half of the year. For over 30 years, Adabas and Natural have served as the mission-critical backbone of many businesses and have a large, loyal user base. Each roadshow event offers attendees the opportunity to test drive three new products and meet one-on-one with product experts.
“For decades Adabas and Natural have been at the pinnacle of high performance, high transaction volume, and high availability enterprise computing,” said Paul Orme-Smith, Senior Vice President of Sales in North America for Software AG, “which is why Software AG continues to innovate and invest in the technologies to ensure our customers can themselves continue to leverage their core processing systems interoperably with the latest leading edge technologies as they evolve.”
At the Adabas & Natural Roadshow, Software AG will showcase three new additions to the Adabas and Natural product lines, and outline Software AG’s vision and roadmap for Adabas and Natural going forward. In addition, a Software AG customer will present an innovative implementation of Software AG’s latest technology.
Attendees are also invited to take the NaturalONE Challenge and qualify for a chance to win an Apple iPad™. To enter, developers use the Community Edition of NaturalONE to create a new Natural web application and Natural library. Software AG launched NaturalONE™ - a new Eclipse-based toolset for enterprise application development in March. The most innovative applications will be honored at a local roadshow. Full contest details are available at http://www.softwareag.com/corporate/ets_roadshow/overview/challenge.asp.
New products featured at the Adabas & Natural Roadshow will include:
NaturalONE™ – an all-in-one, high-productivity Integrated Development Environment (IDE) that lowers the time and cost of application development by as much as 30 percent and cuts maintenance and staff training time in half. Based on open-source Eclipse, NaturalONE delivers a powerful and easy-to-use set of application lifecycle capabilities to current users of Natural as well as Java or COBOL developers. The solution lets developers code and test applications, expose Natural objects as Web services and create rich web interfaces. It is well-suited for developing applications to run natively on major platforms, including the mainframe, UNIX, Linux and Windows. NaturalONE lets developers produce systems that not only support enterprise Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Business Process Management (BPM) objectives, but also appeal to business users.
Optimize for Infrastructure – a single, browser-based performance monitor that reduces the time spent on monitoring by up to 50 percent and outages by more than 35 percent. Optimize for Infrastructure works across Adabas, Natural, webMethods EntireX, webMethods ApplinX and other Software AG environments and delivers valuable insight into real-time activity within and across Software AG systems. Optimize for Infrastructure provides a customizable dashboard that delivers real-time visibility into Adabas and Natural environments from a single vantage point, improving system uptime through continuous real-time monitoring and analysis and allowing problems to be resolved before they impact the business.
Adabas Archiving – a well-managed, automated, accountable and secure place to store, search and recall archived data over the long term. With Adabas Archiving, companies can improve the performance of primary databases by up to 30 percent on storage costs by archiving unneeded data on a cheaper storage device, get to archived data easily and at any time, reduce the time of planned and unplanned outages, and meet data retention requirements.
“Our customers continue to look for ways to add value to their existing IT investments and expand the business capabilities IT delivers,” Orme-Smith said. “Likewise, we are committed to expanding the power of the solutions we provide to help them achieve those objectives.”
