RIA Update: Nexaweb and Hitachi Partner On Deploying Rich Internet Apps

"Extended Struts for Nexaweb" Is Born

Nexaweb has been seeing rapid RIA adoption in Japan, particularly in the financial industry, and so has entered – via its wholly owned subsidiary, Nexaweb Japan K.K. – into a strategic alliance with Hitachi Systems and Services, Ltd. (Hitachi Systems), one of the largest providers of systems integration services in Japan.

"We expect this movement will continue to spread across various market sectors,” said Brian Murphy, SVP worldwide sales and services of Nexaweb. “We look forward to working closely with Hitachi to ease the development and migration pains of deploying enterprise-caliber Internet applications and we are committed to their success by arming customers with next-generation RIAs,” he added. 

As a member of the Nexaweb SI Partner Program, Hitachi Systems & Services will leverage the Nexaweb Platform to build and deploy enterprise-class applications over the Web, Murphy said. The new offering will be jointly marketed and sold, he continued.

Through the alliance with Nexaweb, Hitachi Systems will offer “Extended Struts for Nexaweb,” an application framework enabling faster and more reliable RIA development.

Hitachi Systems has already taken a leadership role in RIA development in Japan by successfully deploying several large-scale enterprise Web applications using the Nexaweb Platform, Murphy said.

Moving forward, Hitachi Systems & Services is expected to focus on developing and migrating business-critical Web applications for major Japanese financial institutions; previously, such applications were extremely difficult to implement on the Web due to security concerns and transaction-intensive requirements.
