Application objects are the entire set of program applications that have been written with standard programming techniques. Any application Object may be “wrappered” inside Visual World allowing these applications to be treated as virtual objects in the enterprise.
An example of this would be MS Office documents. Visual World allows you to store Office Documents documents on the server then automatically edit them with your local copy of Word, Excel, or Powerpoint. Visual World maintains a calendar of all the documents created and changed. You may link your documents to a customer Name Card or any other object in Visual World. For example you might want to keep a correspondence record written in Word for a contract or you may want to document company procedures then, using the Backpack, drop that Word document on a staff person’s desk giving them ready access to procedures.
This model allows for greater extensibility and interoperability of 3rd party components.
