Nsite Launches No-Coding Development Environment

Software-as-a-service (SaaS) company Nsite, which has historically offered products that extend customer relationship management (CRM) platforms, will launch Tuesday a browser-based development environment that lets users build new applications.

Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (Ajax) and open-source technologies, such as LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, P for PHP, Perl and Python), enables the drag-and-drop development environment in the browser. There's no coding required; nor plug-ins or downloads.

Nsite also built in a "Web-services Wizard" that integrates with both Salesforce.com and Siebel CRM "in about one minute with no coding," said Rosie Hausler, Nsite vice president of marketing. "A guy on my marketing staff, a non-programmer, built an HR application in about 20 hours."

Hausler said the prior Nsite version offered the Web-services Wizard, but users could only pull data from Salesforce.com, but couldn't push data back in. "You could build a Web-services Wizard into Salesforce.com that can both push and pull data back and forth," she said.

Nsite 6.0 introduces enterprise objects, pieces of code that are reusable, as well as data links and workflow capabilities to help build more advanced enterprise application.
