Moai Technologies Standardizes on InstallAnywhere(R)
Leading e-Sourcing Solutions to be Deployed Using Zero G's Industry-Leading Multi-Platform Deployment Solution
SAN FRANCISCO, May 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Zero G Software®, the leading
provider of Java-based, multi-platform application infrastructure solutions,
today announced that Moai Technologies has standardized on InstallAnywhere®
4 to deploy its LiveExchange(TM) 4.0 and CompleteSource(TM) Enterprise online
negotiation software for e-sourcing. InstallAnywhere's flexible and intuitive
deployment solutions enable Moai to deliver its world-class technology to
customers anywhere, on multiple platforms.
Moai's award-winning LiveExchange and CompleteSource online negotiation
solutions provide corporations, government organizations, and net market
makers with the technology and expertise to power highly branded auctions,
reverse auctions and structured negotiations for online strategic sourcing.
LiveExchange and CompleteSource enables companies to improve their sourcing
processes, manage inventory, and create new sales channels.
``Zero G's(TM) multi-platform installer technology is a natural fit with
our Java-based products,'' said James Talbot, Moai's vice president of
engineering. ``InstallAnywhere enables us to use a standardized solution for
all platforms instead of having to develop and maintain semi-custom batch
files and scripts for the Windows and UNIX platforms.''
Moai has integrated InstallAnywhere's ability to deploy applications in
console mode into its quality assurance process. ``InstallAnywhere's console
mode functionality has helped us to streamline testing,'' added Talbot. ``We
create nightly builds of our software and send it to QA for testing. Before
InstallAnywhere, we had to install our enterprise-class software manually onto
each of three platforms. Now, with InstallAnywhere 4's silent command-line
functionality, we deploy to QA by executing just a few commands, saving many
man-hours and speeding our time to market.''
``Moai Technologies created the category of negotiation software, powering
the way that companies do business across the enterprise,'' said Eric Shapiro,
co-founder and CEO of Zero G. ``They can't afford to standardize on a solution
that provides anything less than world-class multi-platform functionality.
Moai needed transparent, seamless deployment, and InstallAnywhere delivered.
As visionary software companies like Moai move toward a software distribution
model that can accommodate the multiple platforms used by their enterprise
customers, they will continue to look for application infrastructure solutions
such as InstallAnywhere.''
