KANSAS CITY, MO – July 14 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Lumen Software (www.lumensoftware.com) announces a solution which empowers developers to create secure browser-based applications, regardless of an organization’s infrastructure. According to the company, the software development world continues to see dramatic changes taking place fueled by recent announcements in the media. These changes are resulting in a migration by developers to a more neutral based OS development environment. To stay competitive, companies that develop software must continue to provide services to current customers as well as have the freedom to support Linux based initiatives.
Microsoft recently announced that it will further expand its software offerings for small businesses even though this will turn many of its current partners into competitors. This is the most recent volley in the race to capture market share in the software / application arena. In the Linux space, Novell, IBM and Oracle continue to embrace the LAMP / PHP model, supporting an impressive, and growing, list of companies developing for the LAMP stack. This evolution of development strategies has positioned Lumen Software’s Hyper-Portal, Lumenation environment / framework and its SDK, LightBulb very favorably.
“To stay competitive, and provide application mobility, developers and ISV’s need a development environment that allows them to provide products for ‘all’ their customers regardless of the Operating System,” commented Tad Gordon, CEO at Lumen Software. Gordon went on to say, “With Lumenation and LightBulb, we have created a foundation based on the LAMP / PHP model, which empowers developers to create secure browser based applications, regardless of an organization’s infrastructure (software or hardware).”
Lumen provides organizations and developers with the tools to create localized (multi-lingual) applications that operate in a cross-platform environment (Linux, Windows, Unix, MacOS). Developers are taking advantage of Lumen’s environment / framework and RAD development tools, based upon PHP and Lumen Software’s graphical engine, that provides fast execution capabilities. LightBulb provides unique tools to rapidly build applications that “snap” into Lumenation’s environment. These applications automatically inherit all Lumenation’s management functionality, GUI interfaces (ie. Virtual Desktop, application screen processing, etc.), security, and database features, which meet FERPA, HIPAA, and DOD compliance requirements.
“Modules and applications can be created by developers, regardless of prior development knowledge or experience. Even non-developers are able to create robust applications using LightBulb’s Application Builder,” commented Vitali Malinouski, Lumenation Project Leader. “This is possible,” Malinouski went on to say, “because Lumenation and LightBulb provide a solution where a significant amount of the development tasks normally associated with any development project are already provided and ready to use.”
Through Lumenation’s framework and LightBulb’s Rapid Application Development (RAD) environment, developers are able to deliver more robust, error free solutions in fast development-to-deployment cycles.
“From the beginning, we were committed to bringing a comprehensive solution that would do more than just provide a development tool for browser based computing,” stated Don Keeler, CTO of Lumen Software. “We had to provide real answers to the vast range of needs companies experience today. The solution had to span management, development, and ease of deployment, with uniform, measurable outcomes while at the same time supporting scalability and fast execution. Our graphical engine truly sets us apart from all other solutions.”
Currently, Lumen Software is working with Novell(r) to market the Lumen Hyper Portal, Lumenation / LightBulb and associated Modules worldwide. “We see this as a great partnership since ISV’s are in need of a development environment which provides them an edge to deliver projects in record time that are feature rich, easier to maintain, and much more cost effective regardless of the vertical,” commented Ted Lymer, CMO at Lumen Software.
To provide additional exposure for applications created by ISV’s and developers, Lumen Software hosts the Lumen SoftWarehouse. This provides developers with an area to “market” the Modules they develop. Organizations have access to review, pay-for and download modules directly into their Lumenation environment, with user provisioning already in place. “This opens the door to all kinds of opportunities for regional companies to position their products globally, and easily maintain updates through Lumenation,” Lymer said, relating to the power of the Lumen SoftWarehouse. “We just made the world of Browser Computing a little smaller, and a lot more accessible to developers regardless of their size.”
