New version of GBS AppDesigner brings even greater usability and flexibility to application modernisation
Frankfurt am Main
GROUP Business Software AG has introduced the new GBS AppDesigner version 2.5. The solution, which has recently been positioned in Experton Group’s ‘Leader’ quadrant, enables the intuitive creation of social business applications. The latest version of the multi-platform enabled solution GBS AppDesigner, which can be used with IBM Domino/Verse, IBM Connections, Microsoft SharePoint and Java EE, is equipped with a variety of new features. The solution’s developers made the modernisation of Notes applications a focal point. “The new release meets our clients’ needs for increased user friendliness and flexibility”, announces Bernd Hesse, Product Manager Collaboration at GBS.
The new version 2.5 now works even more intuitively, since the web interfaces for classic IBM Notes applications can be designed even faster and easier for direct use in browsers. New layout functions, category filters for views, and editing forms via drag & drop further support the user. In addition, the handling of file uploads using the web frontend has also been improved. Expanded rights management creates increased security, since it allows both application developers and users to assign defined rights.
In the coming weeks, GBS will add yet more functions to AppDesigner. Among other things, the company announced that an interface with Microsoft SharePoint will be further pursued. The availability of social business applications created with GBS AppDesigner for mobile use will also be expanded.
