United Planet Announces Smart Third Party Web App Builder for SAP NetWeaver Gateway Technology
LONDON, February 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –
United Planet (http://www.unitedplanet.com), one of the leading developers of
enterprise portal software in Europe, has developed a generic development environment for
SAP NetWeaver Gateway Technology. The ‘SAP Certified – Powered by SAP NetWeaver’
interface, Intrexx Business Adapter 1.0 (http://www.intrexx.com/sng), allows users to
quickly and easily integrate their SAP data into any compiled web application, using the
Open Data protocol (OData). Using the interface in conjunction with SAP NetWeaver Gateway
enables users to exploit the new licensing models offered by SAP specifically for SAP
SAP NetWeaver Gateway makes use of the standardised web protocol OData and
considerably simplifies access to SAP data, particularly for those who are not SAP
developers. Thanks to the OData protocol, the user no longer needs to be familiar with SAP
interfaces or the relevant SAP system. Instead, OData enables the easy and simple
integration into, and processing of, data on the majority of technology platforms and
development environments. These properties are made available to the user via the new
functionality provided by the Intrexx Business Adapter 1.0.
Intrexx is a platform-independent visual development environment which can be used to
create web-based applications as well as entire enterprise portals. The strength of the
United Planet software, currently in use by more than 4,000 users and organisations, lies
in the integration of all the data available within a company and the ability to use it in
new applications. The software’s simplicity of use considerably reduces the time needed to
create and launch these application projects.
With the new interface connecting Intrexx Business Adapter 1.0 and SAP NetWeaver
Gateway, any SAP service can be integrated into applications available via the OData
protocol, at the click of a mouse. The user benefits from a new and very cost-effective,
usage-dependent licensing model from SAP AG. The adapter was certified by SAP AG in
United Planet’s CEO, Axel Wessendorf, explains: “Previous solutions have always been
limited to a very precisely specified and implemented service, for example, business
partner addresses. With the Intrexx Adapter for SAP NetWeaver Gateway, we have taken a
different path. Thanks to the generic approach, every user is able to choose which
services or data they wish to include in their applications or portal. This provides
increased flexibility in a much more simplified way.”
Another advantage for the user is access to the “Mobile Assistant” which has been
integrated into Intrexx. This enables applications with SAP data to be conveniently
delivered to all mobile devices (e.g. iPhone, Android, BlackBerry) which enables users to
simply and easily access all the relevant information in their SAP backend systems via
Intrexx and SAP NetWeaver Gateway.
