Appgen Software Solutions Offers Free Linux Development Tools to Novell Partners
Tools Will Speed Application Development, Propel Linux Desktop Market, and Benefit Small Business Segment
TACOMA, WA, 03/09/2005 -- Aptus Corp., owners of Appgen Software Solutions, announced today an offer for Novell PartnerNet members to obtain Appgen’s 4GL Development System and applications for Linux at no cost. The Appgen Development System is a fourth-generation computer language (4GL) that allows programmers to easily develop and customize business applications.
Since 1997, Appgen has offered a complete line of general business and accounting applications for the Linux operating system. The Appgen Java-based easy-to-use graphical interface, released in 1999, positioned Appgen’s commercial-grade accounting and finance applications as the first to offer native support for both Linux desktop and server environments. The Appgen 4GL Development System is Linux-based and parameter driven. Unlike other 4GLs that generate 3GL source code, Appgen’s 4GL generates complete business applications. With a parameter-driven technology, Appgen requires no procedural coding.
“Using the Appgen 4GL results in application development projects that are typically completed 20 to 30 times faster than with third-generation procedural languages such as ’C’ and others,” stated Errol Allahverdi, head of product development for Appgen. “Applications produced with the Appgen 4GL are portable to any of the Linux platforms, as well as to UNIX, MAC OSX and Windows platforms.” Mr. Allahverdi added, “Appgen, and derivative products, are designed to run on inexpensive, industry standard hardware -- the type of hardware that small businesses actually purchase.”
According to Joanie Mann, Executive Vice President of Aptus, “There are fundamental applications that every business needs: email for communication, productivity to produce information, and accounting to keep score. We chose to partner with Novell to offer the Appgen Development System because of their extensive network of channel partners. With Appgen, they can offer their customers complete business solutions proven to work on Linux.”
“Using the Linux-based Appgen 4GL Development System along with the core business applications, our partners have new options to expand their portfolio of service opportunities,” said Ladd Timpson, Worldwide Director, Channels Marketing for Novell. “Our partners gain a new choice of tools to rapidly develop vertical, horizontal, and localized applications to suit virtually any business type, and to build additional business value around their custom-developed applications and services.”
“Having been involved with Appgen since 1986 and with SUSE LINUX since version 6.0, we are naturally excited to see these two meet and begin to work together,” said John Venegas of Venegas Littman and Associates, an Appgen developer partner. “We feel this new Appgen and Novell business association will help propel the Linux Desktop market with greater momentum. The Appgen platform running on SUSE LINUX offers customers power, flexibility, stability, scalability, interoperability, and remote administration -- everything you’d want from an enterprise server, and at considerable cost savings over the competition.”
Appgen Custom Suite, MyBooks Professional, and the Appgen 4GL Development System are certified Novell Ready for SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server and other Linux distributions.
