Remedy Looks to Cure Firms’ Lethargy

Remedy Corp. Tuesday introduced its
latest shot-in-the-arm for companies looking to speed their move to the Web
with an application that adds new Web authoring capabilities and supports
thousands of concurrent users through a single server.


Remedy’s ARWeb® 4.0 provides access to applications across a company’s
intranet or via the Internet, but more importantly it . increases the speed
at which Remedy applications can be deployed across an enterprise.


Companies sector-wide are searching for the latest high-performance app.
With ARWeb, Remedy thinks it can deliver; the new tool features a
DHTML-based interface served up by Java Server Pages.


The familiar Web-browser interface reduces time and cost of application
roll-out, and dismisses the need to train users to use it. Because it does
not tax the network as much as other apps, ARWeb 4.0 is perfectly safe for
access over intranets.


Remedy administrators also gain added flexibility with the
new authoring capabilities because they can employ HTML editors, such as
Microsoft Front Page™, to modify Remedy ARWeb pages.


Remedy ARWeb 4.0 supports Microsoft IIS, IPlanet, and now — Apache.


“At Oracle, we have found many successful ways to boost productivity with
Remedy AR System™,” said Gary Roberts, vice president Americas IT, Oracle Corp. “With more
than 40,000 employees in more than 50 countries, Oracle uses Remedy’s system
to keep us in touch with employee needs and speed resolution of their
problems.”

Remedy said estimates show that enterprise applications, on average, take
more than nine long months to implement, but the firm desires to beat rivals
by getting such apps rolling faster.
