Now you see it…Now you don’t…

By Glenn Johnson

“Now you see it…now you don’t” are familiar words from a Magician. That’s what you’ll be saying about complex line-by-line code if you adopt Magic Software’s uniPaaS instead of sticking to older software development paradigms based on text-editing.

uniPaaS is well-known as an application platform by Magic Software Enterprises (NASDAQ:MGIC) enabling Enterprises and Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) to deliver business applications with minimal project risk and associated costs. Taking those capabilities into the cloud is truly exciting. Nevertheless, many independent software vendors or ISV's ask how thay can enter the SaaS competition with so many large players already in the market.

Without the world’s most agile development solution, Naktek Consulting would not have been able to migrate their ERP solution in to the full-blown SaaS ERP system that it is today. Today’s release and announcement of erpwizard at is ample proof of that.

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.When developing applications for SaaS or private-cloud deployments, the business-ready nature of uniPaaS can be a huge advantage. The erpwizard SaaS solution uses the full capabilities of the uniPaaS rich client for Rich Internet Applications (RIA) causing Namtek to use the tagline: erpwizard the rich client cloud erp solution.

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.This is also the case for erpwizard, as they have an on-premise ERP solution available as well.

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.

erpwizard is a SAAS based ERP software solution in the cloud, that empowers small and mid-size companies, to run their business and meet challenges, with a top of the line ERP solution. Built on UniPaaS rich-client technology, erpwizard helps companies lower overall cost of computing, while benefiting from a wide range of functionalities and features.

So the days of complex coding are gone, vanished, disappeared into thin air...that is at least if you're a Magician.
