||Onyschuk and Associates Inc. announced they are shipping GlyphiX for MacOS X Server. GlyphiX is aimed at businesses needing to draw charts, diagrams, and other business graphics. According to the company:
GlyphiX is a business and technical drawing tool used to draw charts, E-R diagrams, object diagrams, flowcharts, and annotated GUI documentation. It features a lightning quick 2D graphics engine, extensive libraries of drag-and-drop shapes, and smart tools that make drawing even the most complex diagrams quick and easy.
With GlyphiX, users draw by dragging-and-dropping pre-drawn shapes and symbols onto a document canvas. Shapes can be joined together using smart connectors that adjust as drawings grow. Both shapes and connections between them can be annotated with smart labels that follow along when lines are moved, or shaped are resized.
The application, which runs as a document reader when unlicensed, can be fully enabled with an activation key. Keys can be purchased for just $199.95, directly from OAAI by calling toll-free 1-877-367-7815, or from the OpenBase store at www.openbase.com. OAAI also offers substantial discounts to students and educational institutions. GlyphiX can be downloaded from the company's web site.
The Mac Observer Spin: MacOS X Server has so much promise for the business market and GlyphiX represents some of that promise. Hopefully we will be seeing more apps like GlyphiX being announced during the next few months. If so, the Apple sales force will be armed with plenty of ammunition when talking to businesses. Net-booting, powerful processing, excellent networking, security.... The only thing missing is a critical mass of application support. That is starting to fall into place.
