Tampa, FL (PRWEB) September 06, 2012
EASA Software (http://www.easasoftware.com), rapid application development and deployment software platform leveraged by global businesses to streamline operations and cut costs, has announced that EASA Version 4.4 will be released in the fall of 2012. This enhanced version will feature an embedded database (eliminating the need to connect to another database), and an XML wizard for rapid application production on non-Excel based applications.
EASA, a rapid application development and deployment software solution, is an innovative platform that allows companies to modernize legacy software and code, streamline proposal generation processes, and deploy complex and cumbersome Excel spreadsheets as user-friendly web applications. Recently, global financial services company Zurich Financial as well as American-based energy giant General Electric leveraged EASA’s rapid application deployment systems to save them both time and money, and simplify operations.
In the case of Zurich Financial, EASA software was leveraged in order to securely distribute spreadsheets used to develop the company’s complex CPQ (configure, price, and quote) models. In the financial services sector, Excel® is widely used to create complex pricing tools for products and services because it is a fast and flexible platform. In fact, spreadsheets are often preferred to “hard-code”, because frequent changes to calculations and business logic are essential..
With EASA Software, Zurich was able to deploy these Excel spreadsheets to web applications. This secures confidentiality and removes risk while making the pricing models accessible to authorized users.
“The problem we were trying to solve was challenging, but EASA was flexible enough to meet our needs,” said Nemanja Kostic, IT Solution Architect with Zurich Insurance Company, Ltd. “In the future, we will rely on EASA even more.”
GE Energy leveraged the same software to develop their Wind ITO (Inquiry to Order) system. GE Energy is one of the world's leading wind turbine suppliers, with over 8,400 wind turbine installations. They required a highly tailored web application to streamline knowledge capture, retention, and communication for wind farm site suitability analysis.
The Wind ITO (Inquiry to Order) application, created with EASA, is now used by 130 people on 3 continents. Wind ITO is a custom web-application which integrates Oracle® with analysis tools such as MATLAB®, Excel®, and several proprietary algorithms.
“EASA enabled us to reduce the IT effort and accelerate the deployment of the
Wind ITO (Inquiry to Order) system,” said Julia Martinez of GE Wind Energy. “Consequently, we have reduced the number of hours per project, enhanced accuracy by reducing manual operations, increased our ability to try ‘what if’ scenarios, and empowered non-experts.”
With the release of EASA 4.4, clients like Zurich and GE will experience an even more dynamic and robust solution that will more easily integrate with multiple existing software systems.
