SILICON OFFICE consists of a sophisticated word processor,
data base management system, application interface designer, and calculator, all totally
integrated in a single package, with programmability in a simple high level language.
These combined features are designed to allow average
non-technical users and professional developers to develop and maintain their own
application systems, for deployment over the internet or local windows based machines.
The SILICON OFFICE 2001 family of products consists of:
- The SILICON OFFICE Application Publisher software, provides
application developers with the neccessary tools to develop applications quickly and
easily, at minimal cost. The finished application can be distributed dynamically to end
users, to reduce maintenance and simplify deployment.
- The SILICON OFFICE Application Browser software, installed
on client machines is used to execute finished Silicon Office applications. The
Application Browser software, ensures all application data, programs and user interface
are served dynamically and independently of each other, which provides end users with
feature rich, fast and easy to use application systems, even over slow modem connections.
The combination of rapid application development, multiple
deployment options and client side application browser software, can be used for
developing web based or local application systems.
Intranets, extranets and the internet sites, which are
typically static, slow, feature restricted and costly to develop, are replaced with fast,
dynamic, user friendly application systems.
Local deployment options to standalone windows based
desktops or shared servers on local area networks, gives ultimate flexibility for an
organisation developing traditional in-house database application systems.
