A new user productivity tool from Lawson helps organisations combine Lawson and non-Lawson data into a single application.
Introduced by Lawson Software during the 2011 Lawson Conference and User Exchange (CUE) held in Boston, USA recently, Lawson Mashup Designer is a new tool that helps Lawson customers build their own composite applications from multiple data sources, on-screen views and business intelligence reports.
Lawson Mashup Designer allows individuals to create their own mini-applications without having to write software code themselves or needing advanced programming skills.
Geared primarily for Lawson power users, system administrators and programmers, Lawson Mashup Designer brings even more power and versatility to the Lawson Smart Office user environment.
Currently available for the Lawson M3 Enterprise Management System, Lawson Mashup Designer is scheduled to be generally available for the S3 Enterprise Management System in May 2011.
Customers can access the new tool via their Lawson Smart Office user environment.
Key features of Lawson Mashup Designer:
- Allows users to combine data and information from a wide variety of Lawson and non-Lawson data sources and applications
- Simplifies a wide range of business processes and individual tasks by bringing together information into a single user-created application
- Helps Lawson enterprise application users increase efficiency and effectiveness in their specific roles
- Allows software users to work beyond the constraints and boundaries of a single form or screen by allowing a mashup of multiple screens, views and applications
- Helps bring greater relevance and context to the information being accessed and used within Lawson and non-Lawson systems
According to Matthew Allbee, product management director for Lawson, Lawson Mashup Designer is a new way for their customers to build better applications that they can use every day.
He adds that the tool enables a new level of user customisation by combining forms, process flows, data views, reports and business intelligence content into a single user-created application without any need for advanced programming skills.
