Supercharge your app development: Introducing Omnis Studio Now

We’ve got some electrifying news to supercharge your development experience – introducing Omnis Studio Now!

What is Omnis Studio Now?

With Omnis Studio Now you can download the most recent revisions of Omnis Studio at any time rather than having to wait for general releases. So you can make use of new features and bug fixes earlier than being outside the program.

Picture this: Brand new features and enhancements will continuously become available for you – no waiting for general releases, no twiddling thumbs. With Omnis Studio Now, you’re the first to feast on the freshest revisions of Omnis Studio. It’s like getting VIP access to the code party! But that’s not all – our new service ensures you’re armed with the latest bug fixes, making your coding journey smoother than ever.

And here’s the cherry on top – zero extra cost! That’s right, Omnis Studio Now is our gift to you, bundled up with the Omnis Developer Program (ODPP) and Runtime Maintenance Service (RMA). We believe in giving you more bang for your buck without actually asking for more bucks!

How can you make use of Omnis Studio Now?

Now, let’s talk membership. To join the Studio Now service, you have to be in the club – Omnis Developer Partner Program (ODPP), that is – and you need to put your client licenses on Runtime Maintenance (RMA) if you haven’t done so already. It’s like having a backstage pass to the coolest coding environment!

What is Runtime Maintenance and how does it work?

The Omnis Studio Runtime Maintenance (RMA) is your key to an effortlessly streamlined, always-up-to-date environment for your Omnis applications. These are your RMA benefits in detail:

  • Update when it fits into your release cycle 
    Timing is everything. With RMA, you’re the maestro of your release orchestra. Update when it suits your rhythm, ensuring a smooth transition without missing a beat in your development process.
  • Stay always up-to-date and one step ahead of your competition
    In the fast-paced world of software development, staying ahead is not a luxury – it’s a must. RMA ensures you’re always up-to-date, giving you that competitive edge that makes all the difference.
  • Simply include the RMA costs in your maintenance charges to your clients 
    Billing shouldn’t be a headache. Seamlessly include the RMA costs in your maintenance charges to clients. It’s transparent, straightforward, and keeps everyone on the same page.
  • No need to explain Omnis technology and release information to your customers
    Why burden your customers with tech jargon? With RMA you don’t need to explain why they have to pay for an Omnis Studio client license upgrade while they just want to work with your application.
  • Migrate all customers at once as there are no extra costs
    Say goodbye to the headache and costs of managing multiple releases. RMA cuts costs and reduces your workload by consolidating support efforts. It’s efficient and cost-effective.
    As you don’t have to ask your clients for extra expenses, RMA lets you bring all your customers to the latest version simultaneously, without burning a hole in your pocket. It’s not just an update – it’s migration made easy.
  • Calculate and budget with a fixed RMA service amount each year 
    No surprises: with RMA, budgeting becomes a breeze. Calculate and plan with a fixed RMA service amount each year, giving you financial predictability and peace of mind.

And here is how RMA works: RMA is an exclusive benefit for our ODPP customers. If you put your deployment licenses on RMA (which is possible from Studio version 10.x onwards) you commit for a minimum term of three years, i.e. for our approx. major release cycle. After the initial period RMA will renew always for another 12 months period.

And in case you haven’t upgraded to our latest release Studio 11.0 by now, now is the perfect time to do so by purchasing RMA.

The RMA price is 20% of your individual license purchase price (i.e. inclusive of ODPP and, if applicable, volume discount) per year and RMA costs can be paid either annually or per quarter. Embrace it, and let the future begin!

Conclusion – don’t wait any longer

Omnis Studio Now is our way of saying thank you for being part of the family. If you have any questions or need help to calculate how you could best implement RMA, please contact your Omnis sales team:

In a nutshell, Omnis Studio Now is not just a service; it’s a ticket to the fast lane of development. So why wait when you can code at the speed of NOW?

Upgrade your coding experience, unlock new possibilities, and stay ahead of the curve with Omnis Studio Now! Happy coding!
