WaveMaker Inc., a leading enterprise application Platform-as-a-Service (aPaaS) software company, today announced WaveMaker Desktop, a free open-source, browser-based, single-developer version of its recent major WaveMaker Enterprise Studio 7 release based on open-standard technologies including Java, Spring, Hibernate, AngularJS, and Bootstrap.
This critical new option enables enterprise developers and non-programming business users to quickly evaluate the rapid API application development (RAAD) capabilities of WaveMaker Enterprise by using live data behind the firewall and without having to involve IT.
WaveMaker Desktop stands in stark contrast to other SaaS-only solutions for app development, which prevent developers from accessing data behind the firewall, and also in stark contrast to other solutions that lock customers into proprietary run-time technologies. WaveMaker Desktop also extends WaveMaker’s commitment to provide enterprises with open-source software solutions. WaveMaker Desktop confirms WaveMaker’s position as a leading open-standard app delivery platform providing enterprises with best-in-class multi-device app development and Docker-containerized private cloud management — all without vendor lock-in.
Like WaveMaker Enterprise, WaveMaker Desktop is browser-based and generates apps based on open-standard technologies. WaveMaker Desktop can also be OEMed by SaaS companies looking to provide powerful UI customization capabilities to their own users.
“WaveMaker Desktop is an important part of our RAD solution set, and for several reasons,” said Samir Ghosh, CEO of WaveMaker. “Speeding app creation speeds innovation. Many enterprises need their apps to access private data and work with an increasing myriad of devices. WaveMaker’s Enterprise platform solves these and related challenges for the enterprise. But developers first want to quickly evaluate WaveMaker’s RAD capabilities on live data, and WaveMaker Desktop makes that very easy.”
“Also, we know that enterprises want to cultivate a thriving ecosystem of service providers around WaveMaker,” Ghosh added. “WaveMaker Desktop enables an extensive range of large and small SIs, VARs, and ISVs to thrive. Plus, we’re also seeing more SaaS ISVs, and ISVs wanting to move to SaaS, looking for an open-standard-based RAD solution to not only build their apps, but to OEM them as a UI customization option for their users.”

While WaveMaker Desktop provides a single developer an easy way to build apps that access data or APIs behind the firewall, WaveMakerOnline.com provides an easy way to try WaveMaker’s enterprise and team capabilities. WaveMaker Enterprise, which provides the best of both worlds, is available for installation and trial as a virtual appliance.
