Unisys Adds DevOps Features to AB Suite App Development Software
December 14, 2016

Unisys ​Corporation announced Release 6.1 of its AB Suite application development software for both the ClearPath MCP operating environment on Unisys ClearPath Forward systems and Microsoft Windows platforms.

AB Suite uses a model-driven approach, so programmers can automatically generate complete high-volume, business-critical applications from a set of business specifications.​

Available December 16, the new release incorporates features for DevOps to speed implementation of business-critical solutions. It also provides new ease-of-use and developer productivity capabilities.

"This latest step in the evolution of AB Suite exemplifies Unisys' ongoing commitment to helping clients redefine their data centers from hardware-centric facilities to integrated, flexible application software environments," said Tarek El-Sadany, SVP, Technology, and CTO, Unisys. "This application-centric approach enables clients to deploy digital business models that make them more agile in seizing market opportunities and more responsive to their customers' needs."

Following are key highlights of AB Suite Release 6.1:

- New DevOps capabilities for users on Windows systems enhance build automation across different test, acceptance and production environments for faster, more efficient application deployment. Release 6.1 also supports XML Framework, tying together data generated by applications from different vendors and domains, saving developers time and money in creating a heterogeneous yet consistent application environment.

- AB Suite Developer now includes powerful features of Microsoft Visual Studio® Editor, so new generations of developers can use contemporary tools to deploy ClearPath Forward applications. Intellisense capabilities that automatically flag potential errors enable developers to create programs with greater confidence and accuracy.

- Updates and enhancements to the DMSII database, which is widely used on MCP-based systems, improve interoperability and continuity with existing application environments. New capabilities that increase the database's scalability and flexibility facilitate upgrading to AB Suite of applications written with the predecessor Unisys Enterprise Application Environment (EAE) development system.
