Reconnecting on European soil

Craig Bennett, our Product Development Manager was fortunate enough to attend the Neptune Summit in Oslo last week. Craig commented: “Norway is a fantastic place to visit and it was a great event with a lot of buzz from the Neptune customer and partner community around their successful use of Neptune Software. It was also really great catching up with this community and meeting many in person for the first time after over four years of online communication”.

Enhancing technology to seamlessly deliver

The summit was a good opportunity for Neptune Software to formally launch the latest product Planet 9.The Planet 9 solution allows you to design and run applications in the Neptune DX Platform giving you the best of both worlds. A consistent, award-winning UX for your apps and a drag-and-drop, low-code platform that simplifies your development, deployment, and management efforts.

In summary Planet 9:

  • Enables developers to create and manage next-generation HTML5 based user Interface applications, and using many of the same technical skills as used in SAP specific Neptune development.
  • Provides the ability to build online browser or mobile solutions or offline mobile solutions.
  • Importantly while it can call and consume SAP services – it isn’t SAP centric. This means that you can make applications for your non SAP systems with the same look and feel as SAP Fiori
  • Is a high productivity application platform that can run on premise or on cloud.

The existing SAP based Neptune solution is still there but has been enhanced. Now you can create great looking applications with a common and consistent to look and feel for SAP and non SAP system and mix and match the data sources and processing

Having attended a technical workshop session on Planet 9, Craig is really enthusiastic about what he saw and the innovation value and potential for our customers.

Icing on the cake

The event was also a chance to connect with partners and business community face to face. It certainly was an invaluable visit and a memorable one with Soltius being awarded Channel Partner of the Year award. It was fantastic to win the award on the back of working with many customers to innovate SAP using Neptune Software and also highlights our promotion of our MyPM mobile plant maintenance solution internationally. Here’s to many more years of working with such a quality business with great people.
