Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) October 30, 2007
Hakano, Inc., an Atlanta-based Web 2.0 and rich Internet application (RIA) development company, today announced it has re-named the company Appcelerator, Inc. Under the new name, Appcelerator will focus on providing open source products and solutions to help enterprises develop, integrate and manage RIAs and SOA-based services.
Hakano was originally founded in 2006 by Atlanta software developers and entrepreneurs, Jeff Haynie and Nolan Wright. The two were frustrated by how cumbersome and time-intensive it was to create Web 2.0 applications (Web-based applications with dynamic user interfaces) using existing technologies and platforms. As a result, they developed a next generation Web platform that enabled them to build RIAs better, faster and more cost-effectively.
"We were looking for a better and faster way to build Web 2.0 apps for our clients," says Jeff Haynie, CEO of Appcelerator. "We ended up developing a new approach to building Web-based applications - enabling us to create fully-functional RIAs in less than one-third of the time it would normally take. At the same time, we could seamlessly integrate those apps with any SOA-based services and mainstream Web browsers without additional code."
Appcelerator's Web platform is based on open standards and a development philosophy that challenges traditional application development models. Appcelerator's platform is based on a message oriented architecture, where clients and services can be developed and executed independently from one another, while being linked by lightweight messages. Developers create services in any language - and integrate RIAs and services without changing a single line of code.
