CorasWorks(R) Corporation Announces Key Customer Wins
RESTON, Va., July 29 /PRNewswire/ -- CorasWorks Corporation today announced an exciting list of key customer wins across its modular application development software product lines. These wins demonstrate and further confirm that CorasWorks continues to provide the fastest, lowest cost, and most maintainable approach to designing and building business solutions on the Microsoft(R) SharePoint(R) platform.
During the first half of 2008, CorasWorks sold its Workplace Suite(TM) and Data Integration Toolset(TM) to a number of leading companies, government agencies, and public organizations including the US Department of Defense, AARP, Skechers USA, FedEx, the Orthodox Union and The Carlyle Group. With more than 1,000 customers, and over one million deployed end-users in a wide range of industries and market segments, CorasWorks has established itself as the leading provider of application development software for Microsoft's SharePoint platform.When combined, the Workplace Suite and Data Integration Toolset provide the key features and functionality of CorasWorks modular application development system. The system is designed to bring the flexibility and ease of use of SharePoint for simple collaboration to the process of designing, building, and maintaining complete business solutions on SharePoint...without spending significant time and expense on custom development.
"The fact that our customers are buying both products indicates that companies are looking to realize value from SharePoint beyond simple collaboration," said Gary Voight, President and CEO of CorasWorks. "Organizations are viewing SharePoint as an infrastructure on which they can build their applications. CorasWorks allows those organizations to quickly and easily build their applications in SharePoint regardless of where the data lives. We - and our customers - are breaking down all of the inherent structural barriers of SharePoint without having to invest in custom development."
With the CorasWorks modular application development system, it doesn't matter where the data for applications resides. The CorasWorks pre-built, modular system allows users to connect to and display the desired information or data, whether it's stored in SharePoint lists and libraries or in external data systems. The Workplace Suite is focused on building solutions in SharePoint that leverage SharePoint data. The Data Integration Toolset extends the capabilities of the Workplace Suite to include data from external sources, including SQL server, remote SharePoint environments, or other third-party databases and applications.
"With CorasWorks, we are able to deploy solutions to our users in days, not weeks," said Karuana Gatimu, Workplace Architect at Skechers USA. "The Workplace Suite allows us to work with our existing development resources - no need to add any to our already-busy IT department. The Data Integration Toolset allows us to serve up external data through our portal with ease."
In addition to announcing significant customer momentum and adoption of the Workplace Suite and Data Integration Toolset, CorasWorks also announced today the availability of the first of six white papers in its modular application development series. The white paper, "7 Barriers to Success with SharePoint" details seven key structural "barriers" encountered by developers when using SharePoint as a platform to add business value. Please see the press release "CorasWorks Advances Application Architecture on SharePoint" for more details.
