Softricity Inc., a Boston-based application platform vendor, today announced the launch of the .NET version of SoftGrid, its application deployment and management software.
This latest version of SoftGrid is designed to allow customers to manage existing Microsoft Windows-based applications as XML .NET services over corporate networks.
The new platform was shown at the Microsoft .NET Solutions Pavilion at the New York New Media Association Technology Showcase.
“The Microsoft’s .NET Solutions Pavilion is the perfect setting to launch the .NET version of SoftGrid, the first tangible result of our three-year agreement with Microsoft,” said Harry Ruda, CEO, Softricity. “Customers can now make existing Windows applications .NET compliant.”
SoftGrid is designed to transform existing Windows applications into network services without requiring changes to source code, providing access to applications across an enterprise to both Windows Desktops and Terminal Services and Citrix MetaFrame servers.
This new version of SoftGrid is designed to integrate Microsoft .NET connected technologies to enable automated features such as application discovery and provisioning, and user authentication through Microsoft Passport to applications outside a corporate firewall. By employing Microsoft .NET Alerts, according to Softricity, IT administrators can use the SoftGrid Management Console to automatically send messages to clients when application services are changed or added.
SoftGrid also reports that integration with Microsoft SQL Server and BizTalk Server will allow provide IT administrators with real-time data about application performance and usage.
