Strong market and outsourcing trends
The market for eXtropia's products - turnkey web applications and
web application development tools - is substantial and has strong
indications for accelerated growth.
Morgan Stanley Dean Witter estimates the web applications market
will grow from $30 million to $100 million between 2000 and 2004
in Asia alone. UBS Warburg puts the global enterprise web applications
market at $800 million in 1999 and growing to $9 billion by 2004.
With an exceedingly high cost for the development and ownership of
applications, the trend towards outsourcing web applications has
been steady and is on the rise. Morgan Stanley Dean Witter reports
that 44% of CIOs they interviewed reported that they are considering
outsourcing application services.

Products support other languages
eXtropia products are multilingual by design. Over the
last seven years, third party developers have found it easy to
translate our applications into Chinese, Korean, Japanese,
Thai, Spanish, German, Russian, Austrian, French, and
eXtropia applications support and easily plug into
enterprise legacy systems including databases, directory
systems, public key infrastructures, firewall-security
platforms, enterprise servers, and XML.
eXtropia applications are built with an extra layer of
encryption for added security. In addition to the basic SSL (Secure
Socket Layer), which protects communications between the
browser and the server, eXtropia applications support the use of
PGP (Pretty Good Privacy), which protects email communication between the
server and the web administrator. Furthermore, all of our applications
eXtropia applications can scale up according to business needs
or usage without a loss in speed or disruption to operations.
eXtropia applications can be adapted to changing business
requirements without the need to rebuild its construction or
affect the company's IT infrastructure.
Making websites easy to build and maintain
Website development is accelerated and site management
streamlined by using assembly line methods. Though each
component contains blocks of complex programming code, programmers
do not need to understand the complex code within.
They just need to know enough to plug the components together
- just like assembling Lego blocks - in order to build a
comprehensive interactive website or expand on existing IT
infrastructure. All of this results in a faster response to
Simple tools can make complex structures
Since our tool kit is so extensible, an advanced
programmer also has the option to configure each component
from within, and also scale up the applications for large
volume transactions. The tool kit also integrates easily with
other programs, such as Oracle and Sybase.
eXtropia offers a less disruptive way of implementing as well as
maintaining an e-commerce strategy, allowing for a
flexible web architecture that adapts to changing market
demands with Lego-assembly ease. For example, our clients can
easily switch from Sybase to Oracle with little disruption as
applications built using our toolkit work interchangeably with
all major systems. Time spent troubleshooting is minimized,
and new staff can learn how to use the toolkit within days.
Ready to install
For convenience and speed, eXtropia also provides
pre-built web applications such as a web database and a web store that
leverage these components. Thus, someone who knows only HTML
can use our pre-built applications to build an interactive website very quickly.
Tried and tested across platforms
eXtropia products work on all major platforms, including UNIX,
Windows and Macintosh. They also integrate easily with
most enterprise software such as Oracle, Sybase, or SAP. Our
products have been continuously developed, tested and have
been in use at thousands of web sites the world over
eXtropia provides many published books and online
tutorials giving extensive explanations of how the code works.
Not only will the eXtropia applications continue to expand
and improve, but a vast network of freelance developers will
always be available to support clients because of the open
source community already built around eXtropia.
Built on eXtropia eXconnect™ technology
All eXtropia applications are built on top of the eXtropia
Application Development Toolkit (ADT). The ADT (over 250
interfaces and drivers) assures that applications work
together seamlessly (in terms of single sign-on, data access
and sharing, and user profiling) both on a single site and
among many sites.
