Macrovision releases 2nd generation Java version of FLEXlm.
"Java technology has become increasingly important in enterprise IT systems as a development and deployment platform for the Web," said Steve McHale, vice president of research, Software Partnering and Alliances at International Data Corporation ("IDC"). "With FLEXlm 9.0, independent software vendors ("ISVs") and enterprises get the ability to apply Java technology to the delivery and management of software assets. This should help ISVs create new and more compelling business models, while customers can improve productivity and better manage their software."
FLEXlm 9.0 eliminates a major limitation of Java applications. Now Java applications can enjoy the same breadth of pricing and licensing models enjoyed by traditional applications. To support the growth in enterprise Web application development and the needs of Java developers, enterprise IT, and software vendors, FLEXlm 9.0 allows software developers to specify customer usage rights for any type of software and software delivery method.
"As a leader in digital rights management, we are committed to providing the world's most advanced electronic licensing management solutions to support virtually any development platform," said Daniel Greenberg, vice president of marketing at Macrovision's Enterprise Software Division. "FLEXlm 9.0 offers substantial gains in productivity and flexibility to both ISVs and corporate end-users. With this new release, Java developers can easily manage software licensing and distribution policies while also opening the door to new revenue opportunities and significant increases in profitability."
General availability for FLEXlm 9.0 is scheduled for March 31, 2003.
