“The software industry believes the best way to develop database applications has already been found. That is a misconception.” So stated Eric White, president of PowerVista Software, Inc., Pine, Colo., (www.powervista.com), maker of the newly released PowerVista Bridge database application development system.
PowerVista Bridge focuses on assisting a business’ experts to distill their knowledge into new graphical business software for the MS Windows platform. Their development teams realize three to ten fold gains in productivity using PowerVista Bridge engine, PowerVista BridgeBuilder layout tools and PowerVista Markup Language.
PowerVista Bridge environment is to developing database applications what Internet development tools are to publishing on the Internet. To deliver a web site, authoring tools, browsers and HTML are required. PowerVista Bridge has identical components, but is focused on database application development. It is specifically designed for building software that meets today’s criteria for usability, scalability and cost effective deployment. Internet development environments render web pages; PowerVista Bridge renders beautiful database applications.
“We invite anyone facing the challenge of building new business software to download our free evaluation software. Work through the tutorial. Then, ask whether the same application could be built as quickly using other development tools” Mr. White encourages. “We are confident that your view of database application development will change after working with PowerVista Bridge.”
