New Landmark in business change

Lawson Software has unveiled a new standards-based business applications platform designed to increase overall software quality, and help organisations quickly modify their business processes for rapidly changing business or technology needs.

Codenamed ‘Landmark’, the new technology environment has been under development by a team spearheaded by company founder Richard Lawson for more than three years. It addresses the source of application complexity, reducing the coding required to develop new business software. Lawson says this will result in virtually error-free, consistent Java code.

Landmark-developed applications and web services will be rolled out gradually and will share the same data repository as users’ existing Lawson applications. This means users need only perform an upgrade, not a migration or new implementation.

Based on a service oriented architecture, Landmark is designed to enable Lawson and its customers to quickly modify and customise business processes. The significant reduction in code and errors and move to open standard technology will also help reduce implementation times and total cost of ownership.

“Landmark enhances the entire product lifecycle experience for our clients, epitomising the spirit of our ‘Manifesto for Change in Business Applications Software’,” said Harry Debes, president, chief executive officer and director of Lawson Software. “Everything from rapid builds and deployments on J2EE environments, to versioning, automated patching and upgrades become faster, simpler, easier and more reliable. It promises major gains in reducing total cost of ownership and increasing return on investment.”
