Web Support

Did you know that your favorite change management system now comes with a brand new Web Development environment. Our Web Framework is called Octo and with Octo we are geared towards a zero install development experience.

We still support our rich client and RDi, because these are still the best option for power users. Also the green screen and VSCode are part of the UI mix.
