New Meta-Powered Software Approach To Application Development

Making its debut on the tech news landscape this week, Texas-based UltiMeta has announced its new meta-powered EASE (Enterprise Application Service Engine) software for rapid app assembly.

The company says that its application engine provides 80-90 percent of the programming needed for creating enterprise applications, with the remaining 10-20 percent custom-developed primarily through configuration.

"EASE is the first software development engine that uses the meta application model to eliminate most of the time-consuming and expensive programming work needed to develop robust enterprise applications. There is nothing else on the market that comes close," said UltiMeta founder and CEO Ramesh Balan.

The company has tried to position EASE as the best of both packaged and custom software: i.e. fast implementation, low cost, and maximized options for customization. "This leads to accelerated innovation and faster adoption of cloud computing technology for the enterprise by companies of all sizes, especially SMBs," Balan said.

EASE already has been certified for use with Microsoft's Azure platform for cloud-based applications, but Balan emphasized that it flexibly supports a combination of public cloud, private cloud, on-premise, and hybrid infrastructures.
