Smart development, database, and integration platforms for high-performance business systems

A faster, clever way to build software

For more than 30 years, JADE™ technology platforms have made it easy for software developers to build clever software in Windows environments. Few, if any other technology systems make it easier to create and move database objects. JADE removes the impedance mismatch, and in the process accelerates software development, so your products and services get to market faster.

JADE 2018: Why Upgrade?

Speed isn’t all. JADE is based on industry-standard technologies and security protocols that integrate with almost any technology stack. From New Zealand’s first internet banking system to systems for milk and timber processing, finance, health, and hundreds of other business systems in between, Jade Technologies makes the business world go round.

Stay connected to what’s happening with the JADE product, events, and the wider community.
