Lawson Introduces Lawson Mashup Designer

New user productivity tool from Lawson helps organizations combine Lawson and non-Lawson data into a single application

ST. PAUL, Minn. (April 04, 2011) – Lawson Software (Nasdaq:LWSN) today introduced Lawson Mashup Designer, a new tool that helps Lawson customers build their own composite applications from multiple data sources, on-screen views and business intelligence reports. Lawson Mashup Designer allows individuals to create their own mini-applications without having to write software code themselves. Lawson Mashup Designer is currently available for the Lawson M3 Enterprise Management System and is scheduled to be generally available for the S3 Enterprise Management System in May 2011. Customers will access the new tool via their Lawson Smart Office user environment. Lawson introduced the new offering during the 2011 Lawson Conference and User Exchange (CUE), which opened today in Boston.

Lawson Mashup Designer allows users to combine data and information from a wide variety of Lawson and non-Lawson data sources and applications. By bringing together information into a single user-created application, Mashup Designer can help simplify a wide range of business processes and individual tasks. Ultimately, this helps users of Lawson enterprise applications be more efficient and effective in their specific roles.

Geared primarily for Lawson power users, system administrators or programmers, Lawson Mashup Designer was created to bring even more power and versatility to the Lawson Smart Office user environment. It allows software users to work beyond the constraints and boundaries of a single form or screen by allowing a mashup of multiple screens, views and applications. This helps bring greater relevance and context to the information being accessed and used within Lawson and non-Lawson systems.

“Quite simply, Lawson Mashup Designer is a new way for our customers to build better applications that they can use every day,” said Matthew Allbee, product management director for Lawson. “By combining forms, processflows, data views, reports and business intelligence content into a single user-created application, we’re now offering a new level of user customization. But most important, this does not require advanced programming skills. Instead, people who use Lawson every day can quickly start to create their own task- or process-specific applications.”
