Unisys releases agile business suite 5.0

Expands options for developing mission critical applications

Unisys has released its agile business (AB) suite development software.

The program is for both the MCP operating environment on Unisys ClearPath systems and Microsoft Windows platforms.

The developer said the new release provides enhancements to help programmers develop hybrid applications utilising existing capabilities, mobile, Web and desktop.

Unisys claims the release represents the first step in its strategy to expand open application development capabilities for the fabric computing architecture.

This is said to be particularly relevant to clients looking to migrate applications written with the predecessor, Unisys enterprise application environment (EAE) development system, to the fabric environment.

The fabric uses software for processes traditionally performed by hardware. Unisys said this avoids the data-transfer bottlenecks that can slow application performance in a conventional networked system and allowing direct communication among ClearPath, Windows and Linux applications residing in different parts of the fabric.

Unisys vice-president mission-critical servers and solutions, Rob Cashman, said the latest iteration of the software demonstrates the firm’s commitment providing ways of building on long-term software investments.

"We combine the rapid application-generation capabilities of AB suite with our advanced systems technology and the powerful Microsoft development environment, empowering organisations to create modern mission critical solutions that they can use to seize emerging business opportunities."

Unisys said it anticipates future releases of AB suite will integrate ClearPath fabric application integration and connectivity services.

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

From new extortion schemes, outside threats and rising cyber attacks, the art of securing the enterprise has seldom been so complex or challenging. With distance no longer a viable defence, Kiwi businesses are fighting to stay ahead of the security curve. In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
