Microsoft Sharepoint integrators and value-added resellers (VARs) have a new option for their clients interested in application development.
Quest Software, an Aliso Viejo, Calif.-based vendor, today announced its Development Studio for SharePoint. A release by the company touts the product’s drag-and-drop interface as a user-friendly way to build applications with SharePoint’s configurable Web parts — and save on development costs. And executives pledge to work with the channel on SharePoint projects.
Quest already offers a site administrator, public folder migrator, recovery manager and discovery wizard for SharePoint. Development Studio is based on the Developer Suite by Workplace Architects, a company whose assets Quest recently acquired. Its starting price is $15,000 per Web server.
We’ll have an upcoming story about channel opportunities in SharePoint, but in the meantime, Quest has this podcast, “Creating the Value in SharePoint.”
