ClearNova's Steve Benfield Discusses AJAX

Three-Tier Apps on Client/Server Are Back in Vogue

Steve Benfield discussed AJAX--what it is, why it's popular, what developers can create with it--in an interview with SYS-CON.TV recently. Benfield is VP/Strategy for ClearNova, which is based in the Atlanta area and focuses on "rapid application platforms and expertise to help companies quickly deliver robust web-based business applications."

The company's flagship product, ThinkCAP, is the company's way of addressing what it calls "the absolute need to build systems quickly and efficiently--without sacrificing functionality or openness."

Benfield was previously CTO of SilverStream Software and helped drive their early leadership in Web Services and eventual acquisition by Novell, Inc. He is a much-sought writer and speaker and has published numerous articles on application development, services-oriented architectures, IT trends, and development techniques.

During the recent SYS-CON.TV interview, Benfield noted some of the challenges facing developers today, why AJAX is emerging as an open-source alternative for a range of development activities, and how ClearNova's product and strategy play into these opportunities.

There's also a shout-out to industry legend Mitchell Kertzmann in this interview, which can be found at:
