Hartford, CT, April 11, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Gartner says that Citizen Developers will build at least 25 percent of new business applications by 2014. clearString, the component-based development platform, announces a new license structure designed to support the Citizen Developer. There is now a new “pay-as you-go” option to enable the new developer to transition easily to Premium services. “Creating a safe stable development environment which is both affordable and does not limit the Citizen Developer is a major advance,” says David Rose, CEO of clearString, announcing the new option.
“Too many new developments never get beyond their first step because developing without an IT department behind you has been too difficult,” says Mr. Rose. clearString enables the creation of websites and website integrated data applications by people who may not be programmers but know enough about information systems and applications to know what they need. The new 'pay-as-you-go' licenses ensure that the citizen developer has access to power tools without needing a large amount of capital. The new 'pay-as-you-go' licensing has also been extended to include the Datacenter license designed for Enterprise use.
“Citizen Developers must be on a level playing-field with large corporate IT departments,” says Bob North, CIO of clearString. The Citizen Developer needs to be able to concentrate on application or website development with the assurance that user management, security and database management, and site structure will just work.” “The robust architectural decisions that are at the heart of the engine that drives clearString, have created a highly flexible platform that is easy to use but without the restrictions of template or software-as-a-service offerings,” said Mr North.
Freedom from hand-writing code
