SANKHYA Announces New Model Driven Application Development Tools

Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India, Sunday, September 22, 2002 -- Sankhya Technologies today announced the launch of Web Varadhi and SANKHYA Translation Framework - (STF) at the launch pad of Connect 2002. SANKHYA Translation Framework (STF) is a completely novel framework (international patent pending) that can be used to automate a host of EAI activities like document and message processing, protocol conversion, data conversion, adapter development and natural language translation. STF includes a translation modeling language - the SANKHYA Translation Modeling Language (STML) and a set of tools that automatically convert information in one format to any other format described using STML. STML Translator (ST) is a model driven translation tool that can both parse information (document, message, data) in one representation and automatically translate the information to any other representation. For reversible transformations, ST can recreate the original document, message or data from the transformed document. This is extremely useful when converted documents are edited and the original document needs to be updated with the changes.

Web Varadhi is an application integration platform that provides enterprises a lightweight object request broker, a model driven HTML generator, directory and event services and an extensible application server. Platforms supported include Windows NT/2000, Red Hat Linux 7.2, and Solaris 2.7.

"These products bring the benefits of model driven application development tools and platforms within the reach of small and medium enterprises", said Gopi Kumar Bulusu, chief executive officer and vice president of engineering for Sankhya Technologies Private Limited.

Introductory pricing for SANKHYA Translation Framework starts at USD 999 (INR 47,952). Introductory pricing for Web Varadhi starts at USD 2295 (INR 110,160). STF and Web Varadhi will be commercially available in the quarter ending December 2002.
