JackBe Announces Platform for Enterprise App Stores


JackBe, a provider of Enterprise Mashup software, announced version 3.0 of its enterprise mashup platform, Presto. The new release provides a platform for creating internal Enterprise 'App Stores,' as well as a robust visual toolset for creating secure Enterprise Apps. Presto 3.0 gives information-hungry business users the power to create and the freedom to choose the Apps they make, share, and use.

ebizQ received the following:

“The timely, personalized information provided by Apps makes users and customers more productive in their work and more effective in their decision-making. And the App Store accelerates innovation through quick-to-market App offerings and allows employees and customers to customize the way in which they use information products,” said Mirko Minnich, CTO and SVP of Elsevier Health Sciences. “I believe every enterprise will ultimately adopt the App Store as the primary model for delivering information in the future.”

JackBe’s visual tools make it easy for non-developers to create enterprise Apps, share them with other enterprise users through the App Store, and deploy them to enterprise destination like portals, SharePoint, iGoogle, and mobile devices. Presto 3.0 also includes enhancement to Wires, the popular visual mashup-making tool, Mashboard, a new App assembly and wiring tool, and Mashup Sites for SharePoint, an advanced SharePoint add-on that mashes SharePoint Lists and publishes Apps as SharePoint WebParts.

“Enterprise App Stores are the next frontier of business user productivity and self-service empowerment. Making it simple and safe for users to create and share business Apps is what every organization wants,” said John Crupi, CTO at JackBe and co-author of Core J2EE Patterns. “Presto 3.0 puts powerful App-building tools in the hands of tech-savvy business users and ultimately gives them tremendous freedom to find and share enterprise information safely whenever, wherever and with whomever they work.”

JackBe is hosting free online learning sessions about Enterprise Apps on Tuesday, July 13 and Thursday, July 29. Interested parties can register for ‘Power and Freedom with Your Own Enterprise Apps and App Store’ at http://www.jackbe.com/news_events/events.php.

Corporate pricing and deployment information for the Presto 3.0 Enterprise Edition is available upon request at www.jackbe.com/about/contact_form.php. JackBe will be making a cloud-based Developer Edition of Presto 3.0 available to all members of its Mashup Developer Community (www.jackbe.com/dev); registration in the Community is free and includes tutorials, samples, and support forums.

Quick Guide: What is Enterprise 2.0?
