United Planet Offers Increased Flexibility via Intrexx Business Adapter 1.0

Intrexx is an easy-to-use software suite for the creation and operation of Web-based applications. With a number of powerful and useful tools, Intrexx supports enterprises, administrations and organizations in the construction and running of portals of all types – employee, customer or Internet.
United Planet, a Europe-based developer of enterprise portal software, announced the availability of Intrexx Business Adapter 1.0, a generic development environment for SAP NetWeaver Gateway (News - Alert) Technology.
"Previous solutions have always been limited to a very precisely specified and implemented service, for example, business partner addresses. With the Intrexx Adapter for SAP (News - Alert) NetWeaver Gateway, we have taken a different path. Thanks to the generic approach, every user is able to choose which services or data they wish to include in their applications or portal. This provides increased flexibility in a much more simplified way," Axel Wessendorf, chief executive officer at United Planet, said in a statement.
As indicated, Intrexx Business Adapter 1.0 allows users to quickly and easily integrate their SAP data into any compiled Web application, using the Open Data protocol (OData). Using the interface in conjunction with SAP, NetWeaver Gateway enables users to exploit the new licensing models offered by SAP specifically for SAP NetWeaver Gateway.
OData enables the easy integration into and processing of data on the majority of technology platforms and development environments.
These properties are made available to the user via the new functionality provided by the Intrexx Business Adapter 1.0. The adapter was certified by SAP AG in September 2012.
Users can now benefit from a new, cost-effective and usage-dependent licensing model from SAP AG. Another advantage for the user is access to the "Mobile Assistant," which has been integrated into Intrexx.
This enables applications with SAP data to be conveniently delivered to all mobile devices, enabling users to simply access all relevant information in their SAP backend systems via Intrexx and SAP NetWeaver Gateway.
Recently, United Planet introduced a graphic "Relationship Designer" module that links data from all software systems operating within an organization to the latest release of Intrexx 6, its intranet and portal software.
