Serena offers mashups on demand

Users can deploy mashups faster without having to install software or manage infrastructure; the company also is boosting agile programming

Serena is offering on Wednesday its Serena Business Mashups via an on-demand format, enabling users to blend consumer widgets with enterprise data and business processes.

With the SaaS deployments used with Serena Mashups On Demand, users can deploy mashups faster without having to install software or manage infrastructure, Serena said. Mashups are intended to solve simple business problems and enable users to be more productive, the company said.

Serena has integrated its "Rich Interface Mashups" into the on-demand platform, allowing users to drag and drop widgets, RSS feeds, Flash components, and other types of consumer data into mashups.

"Serena Business Mashups allow knowledge workers around the world to automate processes to solve their everyday business problems," said Rene Bonvanie, a senior vice president at Serena, in a statement released by the company.

Mashups On Demand is available through a subscription price plan starting at US$15 per month. The company is announcing the mashup effort at its Tag conference in the US.

Also on Wednesday, Serena announced intentions to offer a SaaS-based program covering agile software development practices. Serena Agile On Demand is intended to enable software development teams to add agile to their portfolio and support global teams working on several projects, Serena said.

Agile On Demand assists with adoption of agile practices by coupling the developer tool with agile adoption and training from Valtech. Virtual training is intended to boost team collaboration.

Also part program are video instruction and live coaching. Work management capabilities enable tracking of time and work status as well as management of impediments and allocation of resources.

Other features include sprint planning, release planning, reporting and dashboarding, and collaboration. Users also can integrate with the Serena Business Mashup Platform.

Serena Agile On Demand is due to be available by the end of the year.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
