John Rhodes, CTO said, “The CM First solution dramatically compresses the CA Plex development cycle using existing models, action diagram code, and panel designs, meeting the business goals of rapid deployment with minimal risk."

The dual focus of this release was to provide a richer desktop experience within the browser and to provide expanded and improved documentation. Improvements were made in controls and customization, and the documentation was enhanced and transformed into an HTML-based system which provides quick and easy access to best practices and information about the many options and controls. Particularly requested was browser-app integration with SAP’s Crystal Reports product, the de facto standard in enterprise reporting and commonly used by CA Plex and CA 2E (Synon) customers for business intelligence. For those seeking a rapid move to web- and mobile-enablement, the latest release of CM WebClient empowers that step.

CM WebClient was specifically designed to eliminate the long learning curve and multiple code bases otherwise required to transform CA Plex and CA 2E apps into browser and mobile apps customized for every operating system and device. Developers comfortable with CA Plex and CA 2E legacy applications will find the product easy to use, and will appreciate the fact that in-depth knowledge of CSS, HTML5, native JavaScript, and mobile device technology is not required to produce state of the art, and visually appealing applications. http://www.cmfirstgroup.com/products/cmwebclient/

John Rhodes, CTO said, “The CM First solution dramatically compresses the CA Plex development cycle using existing models, action diagram code, and panel designs, meeting the business goals of rapid deployment with minimal risk. Companies know that mobile is critical to meeting customer demands, but without an easier way to accomplish the task, many haven’t seen a way to transform their CA Plex and 2E legacy applications.”

Some examples of the enhanced browser- based, rich desktop experience are as follows:

  •     Save grid column size & position for each user
  •     Improved alt-key handling for Menus & Buttons
  •     Supports browser shortcut keys, such as F5, within the CA Plex application
  •     Improved grid CSV export support.

CM First customers are already realizing concrete results in much less time than had been projected.
United Heritage Life Insurance Company, needed a way to support field agents with mobile applications. The challenges were many: no budget for additional staff, no mobile experts, and a need to get to mobile quickly. At the same time, United Heritage staff hoped for a solution that required minimal recoding and minimized the need to understand the complexity of supporting the different operating systems and devices. With CM WebClient, United Heritage was able to combine two key applications into one mobile interface, empowering insurance agents to quickly define custom policies for customers in the field. http://www.cmfirstgroup.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/United-Heritage-Success-Story-final.pdf
