Applix, which develops the Anyware Java office suite, stepped up its Java initiative last week.
The initiative, called Anyware Now, is designed to accelerate Applix's Java marketing, research and development programmes. The company hopes to reconfirm its commitment to shipping software that complies with JavaSoft's 100% Pure Java initiative.
Mike Smith, European marketing manager at Applix, said: "We believe the true value of Java-based computing is founded on the ability to deliver applications just-in-time to the user, with virtually no advance preparation.
(With) our Anyware Now programme, we are further extending our Java leadership to ensure that customers (get) the most effective business solutions."
Barry Burke vice president of product marketing at Applix commented: "The major thing is we are refocusing all our business on the Java platform."
Burke continued: "We believe that the key value of Java is write-once-run-anywhere. This can only be achieved in 100% Pure Java."
Applix has three products which support Java: Applix Enterprise, TM1 and Anyware. Burke said that through the Anyware Now strategy Applix will extend its Java support by adding new Java products and providing closer integration between Java and Enterprise in 1998.
