JADE 7.1: Faster, easier, better

Now you’re ready for big data, commoditized devices, and cloud deployment

We’ve seen how software development is changing today. Big data is multiplying the scale that systems need to operate at. Everyone’s using commoditized devices, and expecting full functionality no matter which screen they choose. More and more systems are being deployed in the cloud, even as a brighter spotlight shines on security.

The enhancements in JADE 7.1 keep your development environment ahead of all of these major trends.
