In an IDC white paper, Al Hilwa, program director for application development software for the market research firm, said, Wakanda is a well-designed end-to-end application platform that comes complete with a graphical development environment catering to modern developer requirements ¦ The application development approach supported by Wakanda abstracts much of the complexity in developing enterprise applications rapidly and productively.
The Wakanda solution is built on 25 years of business application experience along with the support of an active developer community. The new development environment can be extended with third-party widgets, libraries and server modules. In addition, Wakandas open-source environment supports developers in adding connectors to their preferred databases. The entire Wakanda solution supports full industry standard compliance, including JSON, REST/HTTP, and CommonJS.
The Wakanda production release will be available in June in both community and commercial versions. The community version of Wakanda will be free. Monthly subscriptions for commercial licenses and developer support will start at $35 per month for one developer and will include a royalty-free unlimited deployment right.
