DataEase is undergoing a complete transition from a lonely "wolf" to a team player. For a very long time, only one version of DataEase has been available - the full developer version. This has now changed!
You will see that DataEase will separate clearer and clearer between development tools and runtime/deployment tools.
We obviously need to start at the beginning, so our focus over the last 18 months (The DataEase for Windows team) has been on enhancing and moving the DFW development platform forward. We are beginning to see the end of the current stage of that, so we are now branching out into support/runtime/deployment/maintenance and data transport.
Group is what we in old money would have known as EXEC, but we have renamed it group because it will basically get a more and more flexible and dynamic role in the DataEase deployment environment. Traditionally an EXEC was only a full network version with the design tool disabled. In the current version, this is very much the same story but not for long.
As things progress we will bundle GROUP with PUMP, which will enable the user to be located anywhere in the world and synchronise is data and application with the "mother".
Needless to say, GROUP licenses will be much cheaper than the traditional FULL license so the affordability of DataEase will increase with the usability.
Standard GROUP is just the runtime environment to run any number of pre-developed DataEase 8 applications.
This is the Start-Pack version of DataEase 8. If you are not a group of Developers, you don't need a lot of full versions of DataEase 8. If you are one developer that develop for a group of users, this is the version for you.
You will get one full DataEase 8 Development License and 4 or 9 Group Licenses. If you need more than that, simply add standard GROUP licenses to the number you want.

Thinking Global acting Local...
This is the map over sales so far this year and it has been a very hectic year so far indeed. But what does it tell us? It tells us that DataEase is still a global brand with a global responsibility, but it also tell us that the strongest markets at the m...
The Story behind....
All the fuss at the moment is about DataEase 8 and that is as it should be as we gear up towards the release. But I can't help thinking that a lot of what is going to make DataEase 8 a great product, and the DataEase 8 product range the most productive Da...
Impressionism, expressionism or conservatism?
We have obviously spend a lot of time disecting both DFD and DFW over the last years when we worked on DG3 and DataEase 8. Our "balanced" view is that DFD is not as good as people like to believe (especially not in 2012 ;-) and that DFW is not as bad as...
