"We really want people to invest in learning our products, so we offer fully functional Personal Editions free. We're confident that once people try them, they'll want to deploy our products within their organization."

FlowSpace, enables end-users to automate functions on their desktops, and create workgroup- and department-wide automations that can run anywhere in a Nouveau Alliance collaboration grid. Users graphically draw and connect steps, then automate them by adding activities from an extensible library. Activity "building blocks" are easy to combine and customize, virtually eliminating the need for programming. FlowSpace includes an advanced debugger that enables users to monitor and modify workflows as they are running, anywhere in the grid.

"FlowSpace is the ideal workflow development environment for anyone from desktop users, to distributed organizations and those who outsource work to remote locations," according to Mr.Gust.

The latest version of FlowSpace includes a new Universal Scripting Framework. Users can now create activities in over a dozen languages, including Java, JavaScript, Perl, Ruby, and Python, as well as VBScript on Microsoft Windows, and AppleScript on Mac OS X.

Using FlowSpace, domain experts without advanced programming skills can now directly contribute their expertise to IT developed applications, eliminating the traditional disconnect between IT and end users.

DerbyDB, a full-functioned RDBMS is pre-integrated and ready to use at no additional cost. Finally, the Department Edition includes WebStart, a unique technology that enables users to launch FlowSpace directly from their web browsers.
