SEER MOVES TOOLS OVER TO COMPONENTS WITH LIGHTSPEED

By CBR Staff Writer

Cary, North Carolina application development house Seer Technologies Inc is moving its tools from a three-tier applications partitioning architecture over to a components-based system, following in the footsteps of competitors such as Dynasty Technologies Inc and Compuware Corp. By 1999, Seer says it will be marketing libraries of application components, vertical industry business models and customizable software building blocks under the LightSpeed name. Five vertical markets will be addressed: financial services, insurance, telecommunications, transportation and energy, much the same user base as that using the company’s current HPS application development system. The first component product, LightSpeed Financial Model, has been released and the company claims it includes close to 80% of the data requirements in the banking, brokerage and insurance areas. Eventually, it hopes to build up a complete customer relationship management system, targeting all five vertical market areas, and building or acquiring components to fit into its CRM Framework. Middleware will identify and retrieve components from a central repository. This is not a radical switch from its current HPS offerings, insists Seer, as it utilizes existing middleware from its more traditional application environment. In March last year, after reporting three consecutive quarters of losses, the Seer board appointed Thomas Wilson, formerly chief executive officer of Xerox Corp subsidiary LiveWorks Inc, as president and CEO to boost its sales and marketing efforts.
