Notes for Editors

uniPaaS is an application platform enabling Enterprises and Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) to deliver business applications with minimal project risk and associated costs.

Business-Ready Application Development
uniPaaS’ ready-made business application engine (metadata engine) allows developers to bypass the intensive code-writing stage and move more quickly and cost-efficiently to a full business application delivery. This results in fewer project failures and more ability to meet budget and timeline requirements.

Multiple Deployment Capability
With uniPaaS, developers can build an application once and then deploy in multiple modes, including; desktop, client/server, HTML web applications and web 2.0 rich internet applications. Multiple application versions can be more cost-effectively maintained as they are based on the same single development effort and codebase.

Mobile Application Support 
The latest versions of uniPaaS make Windows Mobile access to RIA and SaaS as easy as Desktop access. This improves application availability for employees working out of the office. Mobile access also allows technicians and field staff using hand-held computing devices to directly access their business applications and be constantly connected to the organization’s back-end systems.

Full .NET integration
With full .NET integration for PC’s and mobile devices, uniPaaS enables enterprise IT departments and ISVs to create rich internet business applications that maximize the capabilities of the client platform user interface while providing complete connectivity to external devices and easier re-use of existing .NET code and assemblies.
