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.
