WaveMaker Web-Enables Independent Software Vendors
The shift to rich internet applications has created urgency for Software Vendors to move from proprietary to web-based clients. In addition, SaaS leaders like SalesForce have gained market share by making a customization tool part of their platform (Force.com).
WaveMaker provides a fast way to web- or cloud-enable existing Java applications, while also enabling ISVs to provide browser-based customization tools to their customers.
Business Demands More From ISVs
New SaaS competitors and rising user expectations for rich internet applications have created three fundamental challenges for traditional ISVs:
Browser challenge: Business users don’t want desktop apps. ISVs must deliver highly interactive, browser-based applications.
SaaS challenge: Business buyers don’t want deployment hassles. ISVs will have to provide hosted solutions to meet business requirements.
Self-service challenge: Businesses want agility. ISVs who can minimize the cost to customize and extend their platforms will win.
