AJAX Company JackBe Closes Product Beta Program Due To Oversubscription

Tremendous Demand Demonstrates Growing Interest in Enterprise Web 2.0 Infrastructure that Enables the Integration of SOA + AJAX

(SYS-CON Media) - JackBe, provider of Enterprise Web 2.0 infrastructure solutions that integrate SOA and AJAX, announced that it has suspended all additional entrants into the recently unveiled beta program for its Presto Rich Enterprise Application (REA) platform. Announced in October 2006, the program received overwhelming interest driven by the market demand for a comprehensive solution for delivering enterprise AJAX applications based on SOA and Web services.

Having invested millions of dollars to develop SOAs in recent years, enterprises are now looking to utilize Web 2.0 technologies to quickly deliver these services through AJAX-driven Web applications. With JackBe’s Presto REA platform, organizations are able to easily consume SOA services and quickly compose interactive, Web-based business solutions. Current participants in the Presto Beta Program are creating rich, interactive Web-based applications for enterprise user communities with direct consumption of SOA services while also delivering the security and governance needed by their enterprises.

The Presto REA platform enables organizations to greatly improve the usability of their Web applications by leveraging their investments in SOA and delivering the services through AJAX-based dashboards and bespoke applications. Applications built on the Presto REA platform gain the advantages of three related but distinct technologies:

* The power of SOA,
* The flexibility and ease of use of AJAX,
* The speed of deployment of the Web.

“We saw the Presto Beta Program as a great opportunity for our organization because of JackBe’s extensive AJAX experience and its unique background in the SOA space,” said Bob Gorley, Chief Technology Officer for the DIA. “Unlike other software companies with similar solutions, JackBe built Presto specifically to meet the challenges associated with SOA and Web services. Other less flexible technologies are simply retrofitting to their own legacy applications.”

“The huge interest in our Presto Beta Program demonstrates the growing market demand for enterprise Web 2.0 technologies that conform to far higher corporate standards for security and governance,” said Luis Derechin, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of JackBe. “Companies have made significant investments in establishing SOA infrastructures and are now looking to AJAX technology to accelerate the benefits and ROI.”
