Synactive announces availability of GuiXT Server

GuiXT Deployment Made Easy – New Deployment Mechanism

Burlingame, CA (01/21/03) -- Synactive today announced the release of GuiXT Server that enables GuiXT deployment without having to install the software on the client machine. The GuiXT Server will emulate the functionality of SAPROUTER, making it possible to massively deploy GuiXT without the need to configure each and every client machine.

GuiXT is a standard component delivered by SAP for the Gui Frontend. It is used to simplify, streamline, and combine multi-screen R/3 transactions into one. Typically, GuiXT is installed on the client machine during the installation of SAPGUI. With GuiXT server, installing GuiXT on every machine is now purely optional. End-users will be able to gain GuiXT benefits by simply configuring a SAPROUTER string in the server properties box in SAPGUI that points to the GuiXT server.

With this capability, GuiXT can now be deployed with ‘zero-footprint’ on the client machines. This not only simplifies deployment, it also simplifies management.

"We are providing more granularity and flexibility for our customers to access the full benefits of GuiXT. With GuiXT Server, GuiXT technology has been extended from SAPGUI and ITS to SAPGUI for Java and SAPConsole. So this is more than simply a deployment technology, it is also an enablement technology," said Thomas Ewe, CEO of Synactive LLC.

"Companies are always looking for ways to improve productivity and usability. Often times, these improvements cost upfront investment of resources to deploy. With GuiXT Server, we’re lowering this barrier of entry into GuiXT technology, already currently deployed in over 200 companies worldwide."
