Frisco, TX (PRWEB) June 21, 2011
Software innovator UltiMeta formally makes its debut this week with the introduction of a new technology for building the next generation of enterprise applications and accelerating the adoption of cloud computing.
Texas-based UltiMeta calls its meta-powered software, EASE™, for Enterprise Application Service Engine. EASE enables rapid assembly and scalable deployment of powerful enterprise applications in a fraction of the time and cost normally required by conventional methods.
The application engine provides 80-90 percent of the programming needed for creating a broad range of enterprise applications, with the remaining 10-20 percent custom-developed primarily through configuration, says founder and CEO Ramesh Balan. UltiMeta’s EASE is the product of five years of collaborative research and development with customers across multiple industries, says Balan, a 25-year veteran of the software research and development industry.
Dr. Michael Savoie, director, Center for Information Technology & Management at The University of Texas at Dallas, says UltiMeta’s EASE marks a breakthrough in enterprise application development and deployment.
“UltiMeta’s meta-powered Apps Engine has the potential to dramatically change enterprise application delivery and accelerate the adoption of cloud computing – in much the same way as electronic spreadsheets accelerated desktop computing,” Dr. Savoie said.
“UltiMeta’s EASE could become especially important for small and medium-size businesses (SMB) through its faster development, lower cost, and flexible delivery models for enterprise applications,” he said.
Balan said, “EASE is the first software development engine that uses the meta application model to eliminate most of the time-consuming and expensive programming work needed to develop robust enterprise applications. There is nothing else on the market that comes close.”
He said EASE provides the best of both packaged and custom software: faster implementation, lowest cost, and maximum customization, all of which are essential for broader adoption of information technology.
“This leads to accelerated innovation and faster adoption of cloud computing technology for the enterprise by companies of all sizes, especially SMBs,” Balan said.
EASE already has been certified for use with Microsoft’s Azure™ platform for cloud-based applications, but Balan emphasized that it flexibly supports a combination of public cloud, private cloud, on-premise, and hybrid infrastructures.
EASE is not industry-specific. It helps enterprises in multiple sectors create next-generation applications that:
- Provide front-line workers with access to real-time transaction and decision-making tools;
- Migrate SMBs from paper-intensive or spreadsheet-driven manual processes to web-based and mobile enterprise applications;
- Work across multiple devices, including Windows-based, Apple iPhone/iPad, Blackberry, Android, and webOS − without any additional development;
- Extend the functionality of current back office systems by providing new portal-based and social networking application extensions, and
- Can be delivered using a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model on a scalable public or private cloud infrastructure.
Dr. Jimmy Laferney, vice president of Medical Affairs, Baylor Medical Center at Frisco (TX), relied on UltiMeta’s EASE technology to develop an electronic medical record (EMR) and automated billing system intended to help both hospitals and anesthesiology practices improve their operational efficiencies.
“Implementation of EMR systems is now mandatory for all health care providers; however they are notorious for being disruptive to physician practices. Additionally, they have been difficult historically to implement and integrate into hospital information systems,” Dr. Laferney noted. “UltiMeta provided a viable alternative for developing and deploying a robust application tailored to our needs in a timely and cost-effective manner.”
Balan is no stranger to software innovation. His prior experience includes lead architect and product portfolio manager roles at AT&T Bell Labs and later Lucent. He holds a Masters Degree in Computer Science from the University of New Brunswick (Canada). He also is a successful software serial entrepreneur.
