Servoy Success Story: Keeneight

This month’s newsletter features another Servoy Success Story: Keeneight Srl. Keeneight specializes in the creation of software engineering that supports the entire life-cycle of the product, from concept design to after-sales assistance for the automotive, aerospace, and appliance markets (the software can also be easily adapted to other manufacturing companies as well).

“Servoy immediately proved to us to be the perfect development and deployment tool because it met our three basic requirements of integration, flexibility and durability. The result of switching to the Servoy development and deployment platform is modular software that is able to integrate and expose data, with all the features needed to manage a product structure during its life cycle. Thanks to the great graphical interface framework of Servoy, we can leverage the user experience with a high level of collaboration features and an easy customization, to always offer what is really needed.

SD TIMES: Servoy’s Web Platform Goes Open Source

European Web platform company, Servoy, announced that it will release its core libraries under the Affero General Public License (AGPL). Those libraries provide Java functions in a JavaScript-accessible Web layer.

Jan Aleman, CEO of Servoy, said his company’s Web platform mixes the best of both worlds. “We’ve found a good mix of not being too runtime-oriented and not being too build-oriented. We don’t generate Java code. Servoy uses a library of native Java code that has already been built maps against those classes,” he said.

Servoy Simplifies SaaS with Open Source Servoy 5.2 and PostgreSQL

Servoy announced the first open source version of its award-winning SaaS application development platform, Servoy 5.2, using PostgreSQL. This change to an open source version, means that Servoy users have enormous flexibility in deployment to cloud hosting or desktop systems; as well as enables open source developers looking for RAD tools, rapid prototyping and data application development to utilize a mature, easy-to-use environment.

“We chose PostgresSQL because it is the most powerful open source database,” said Jan Aleman, CEO, Servoy. “Users can also run other databases at the same time. We support Sybase, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, IBM DB/2, MySQL and others out of the box.” PostgreSQL has won praise from its users and industry recognition, including the Linux New Media Award for Best Database System and five-time winner of the Linux Journal Editors’ Choice Award for best DBMS.
