BgmRodotec in Brazil Selects GraphOn’s GO-Global for Secure, Web-Enabled Access to Globus ERP Application
GraphOn Corporation (OTCBB: GOJO), a leading worldwide developer of thin-client application publishing and Web-enabling solutions, announced today that BgmRodotec, a leading independent software vendor (ISV) headquartered in Sao Paulo, Brazil, has selected GraphOn's GO-Global remote access software to provide Web-enabled and cross-platform access to its market-leading Globus enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution.
GO-Global for Windows is a fast, affordable, and secure application delivery solution that provides Web-enabled and cross-platform access to centrally-running Windows applications from any local or remote platform and operating system, including UNIX, Linux, Mac OS X, Windows, Windows Mobile, and Pocket PC. With GO-Global server-based, cross-platform computing, there is no need for ISVs such as BgmRodotec to modify applications for the Web or deploy complex, costly infrastructure such as Microsoft Windows Terminal Server or Citrix XenApp Server (previously known as Citrix Presentation Server or MetaFrame).BgmRodotec is one of the top IT companies in Brazil, specializing in ERP solutions for the transportation industry. The GO-Global solution was provided to BgmRodotec by Centric System, a GraphOn distribution and sales partner in Brazil.
"GO-Global instantly extends the benefits of the Globus ERP solution to remote Web-based users and those running different client platforms," explained Centric System Director Otto Pohlmann. "GO-Global's advanced server-centric technology, patented RXP communication protocol, and built-in security facilities eliminate the time, money and effort normally required to rewrite applications for the Web or port them to new computing platforms. Unlike other less-flexible remote access alternatives, GO-Global allows BgmRodotec to retain 100% of the Globus applications' features, functions and branding."
According to Emerson Grandi, Manager of Operations at BgmRodotec, the main benefits of using GO-Global to remotely access the Globus system include:
-- Improved performance due to the efficient RXP protocol which provides high-speed performance, even over low-bandwidth, high-latency connections.
-- Easy configuration of local printers and management of permissions for remote users.
-- Improved server-based security since only the application's user interface is presented to remote users, not the entire Windows desktop.
"Simply stated, GO-Global is an easy and secure application delivery solution," concluded Pohlmann. "There's nothing extra to buy and no code to be rewritten. And unlike other solutions, GO-Global is offered on a cost-effective, concurrent licensing basis. GO-Global maximizes the value of existing applications while lowering the total cost of ownership."
While other solutions are based on per-seat licensing, GO-Global licensing is based on concurrent usage. This reduces the overall costs for Globus users and increases customer satisfaction.
