An exciting blend of Technical and Commercial benefits

We truly believe that Superbase NG offers an exciting blend of technical and commercial benefits:

  • We provide you with a complete development environment for building data-intensive applications, including one of the most powerful yet compact single-user micro database engines in the industry, and our simple Drag and Drop prototyping tool Superbase NG Personal.
  • Superbase NG is an ideal solution for multi-user applications, allowing peer to peer database sharing within workgroup settings without the need for a dedicated server. And an ODBC client allows scalable deployment between standalone and workgroup deployments and larger data centres.
  • Superbase NG is a true “write-once, run-anywhere” environment, meaning you can create applications that will run immediately on Windows, and Linux without compromising on the quality of the user experience, with Mac OS-X and mobile device support planned for the future.

More than just a technology

As a software development professional, choosing a development platform is more than choosing a technology: It is also a question of choosing a business model. Here Superbase NG also offers a number of benefits:

  • Superbase NG libraries and database engines can be distributed freely in feature-restricted or time-limited formats to facilitate seeding and freeware distribution while offering software vendors the opportunity to build a complementary revenue stream from SIMPOL upgrades (see Building a Development Business on SIMPOL).
  • The SIMPOL Developer Support programs exist to give corporate developers, professional developers and software vendors privileged access to the developers of SIMPOL.
  • Our community forums provides access to a broad range of like-minded developers with active discussions and a forum for sharing information and even code.
