Glue42 Rolls Out New Platform
Posted by Colin Lambert. Last updated: July 26, 2021
Integrated desktop provider Glue42 has rolled out a new version of its Enterprise solution, which reacts to “the demise of the app”. The new release, the firm says, focuses less on individual applications and extends the workspace concept with an enterprise store that allows users to search for business solutions with best outcomes.
It adds that desktop integration is “going mainstream” and says financial institutions are looking at how they can fast-track the delivery of the best possible user experience, leveraging existing resources and technology. At the same time, they need to consider that traders rarely perform their tasks within a single application and instead are the human glue between different data silos and systems, it adds.
The new features enable the curation of an individual user experience accessible through a new launch pad. An upgraded global search engine capable of locating multi-app workflows, multi-screen layouts, business functions and business data, provides traders with answers in form that can be actioned immediately, Glue42 says. It adds that new server-side support enables firms’ development teams to configure trader specific profiles that provide levels of customisation not previously possible.
“It’s all about making traders and IT departments that support them more efficient,” says James Wooster, COO, Glue42. “Quite often our clients need to build back-end infrastructure services to handle personalization, permissions and security. This takes time and can delay go-live.
“The new functionality is a natural evolution of the Glue42 Enterprise platform,” he continues. “It follows client demand to move away from app-centric desktops into hyper-personalised experiences based upon micro-applications, workspaces and user-aware enterprise stores.”
