  • 3 years ago, Mitchell Kertzman, the creator of PowerBuilder, called me into his office and said “Chris,
  • What Is WaveMaker?
  • What can you do with WaveMaker? Wavemaker allows anyone to build great-looking web apps and deploy them anywhere they want.
  • WaveMaker’s development studio runs in a browser and looks like PowerBuilder or MS Access. Use drag and drop to assemble your application, deploy to your desktop a data center or a variety of clouds with a single click, and maintain your application easily using WM
  • Developing applications visually has a huge productivity payoff For SAIC, we cut the time to get new developers productive on Java from 2 years to 2 months For National City Bank, we reduced the amount of code needed to build a customer management system by 98% For KANA, we helped them reduce maintenance costs for their customers by over 75%
  • WaveMaker is in use at a who’s who of Government Agencies, Fortune 500 enterprises, Systems Integrators and Software Vendors WaveMaker is integrated with the Nationwide Health Information Network and is being used by the Federal Health Architecture group to build electronic medical records apps WaveMaker is being used by the CDC to build worldwide disease surveillance systems WaveMaker is being used by Malaria researchers funded by the Gates Foundation to build applications that will help eradicate Malaria Just as importantly, WaveMaker has been enthusiastically adopted by the open source community and is in use today by over 15,000 developers
  • Gartner recommends WaveMaker as the only open source RAD tool for cloud computing Definition: Gartner defines a 4GL as "a visual programming model or some higher level of definition beyond pure specification of procedural code, possibly via declarative design specification."
  • The WaveMaker platform is based entirely on open source components like Spring and Hibernate. WaveMaker consists of 4 components: 1) the drag and drop developer studio, 2) the runtime, which provides security and cloud management; 3) a set of prebuilt application templates that enable drag and drop assembly of business applications and integration with collaboration services like email, document sharing and contact management
  • As an open source product, getting started with WaveMaker is incredibly easy. You can download WaveMaker or go to to access our cloud-based development studio. Next, join our fanatical developer community to get help and support for your project. Finally, contact Wavemaker to get training, services and support.
