Servoy has updated its SaaS platform, Servoy 4.13, that allows development of hybrid applications -- deployed as SaaS and on-premises through both a browser and a native client -- from a single code base.

Unlike other platforms, Servoy applications do not need remote video technology such as Citrix and Microsoft Remote Desktop to run over the Web. Servoy applications typically require up to 10x less server resources than applications deployed using Citrix and Remote Desktop.

“This is a major breakthrough,” said Jan Aleman, CEO of Servoy. “Running native applications over the Web without the need for third party technology is unique with significant cost savings -- not only licensing costs but also server and management costs.”

Additionally, Servoy addresses some of the problematic issues of Remote Desktop technologies -- mainly hardware access. “Printing and file system integration is always cumbersome and often requires additional tools and costs,” Aleman said. “Servoy's native client technology has built-in capabilities to access any type of connected hardware with direct access to the local file system. Even more, it is possible to enable native integration with applications that are running locally.”

Servoy has also recently released a free calculator to estimate redevelopment cost and total cost of ownership at Using the Servoy TCO Calculator, ISVs now can quickly estimate the potential savings of implementing Servoy.
