Building on Connotateâsâ award winning platform and patented, visual abstraction technology, the âDeveloper Editionâ enables individual developers and development teams to âget under the hoodâ of Agent creation and complement Agents via a high degree of programmatic control. Developers can directly add scripts, loops, or API calls to further customize Agents, adding granular skills, features and functions. The âDevelopers Editionâ makes it so that every web source is a target for quick and easy Agent creation.
âThe Developer Edition is a powerful combination of automatic Agent creation using machine intelligence, coupled with a high degree of programmatic control â itâs the best of all worlds,â comments Bruce Molloy, CEO of Connotate. âThis latest addition to our suite enables us to offer 100% coverage of the web universe, in addition to RSS, databases and other unstructured data sources. Other approaches require programming or HTML knowledge, take considerably longer to create and are much less reliable.â
Connotate offers the most reliable and scalable approach to monitoring and collecting real-time intelligence from the Web. And, with the ability to create and publish Agents in minutes â rather than in hours or days â the Connotate solution offers the enterprise a low total cost of ownership.
The Developer Edition leverages Microsoftâs award-winning Visual Studio IDE (integrated development environment) to ensure accelerated application development, delivery of breakthrough user experiences, and effective collaboration. Known for its fundamental enablement of developers to write code faster through a wealth of productivity-enhancing features, Visual Studio allows developers to create Agents that:
Build Connected Solutions and Streamline Business Processes â APIs and web services enable developers to easily connect Agent alerts, deliveries, and schedules to other systems or applications.
Focus on Real Business Challenges and Accelerate Solution Development â The productivity, performance, and scalability of both Visual Studio and the Developers Edition enable developers to create Agents in a fraction of the time that native programming tools would permit, creating synergies between the technical and business sides of the enterprise.
âWe are excited about the combination of Connotateâs award-winning Agent Studio with Microsoftâs Visual Studio environment,â says Sheila Gulati, General Manager, Application Platform and Developer Marketing at Microsoft. âWe feel Connotateâs customers will gain greatly from leveraging the most powerful integrated development environment (IDE) on the market.â
