10 Reasons why Omnis

Powerful, productive, performant, proven – there are many reasons why Omnis Studio is the smart choice for application development.

You have a question?

Why you should choose Omnis Studio…


1. Cross platforming for real flexibility

Do you really want to spend time on developing the same solution twice for different platforms rather than being able to focus on the concept and logic of your solution and an attractive UI? With Omnis Studio you can create your application on one platform and deploy it to any other platform, including Windows & macOS desktop computers, on the web in any browser, or on any mobile device on Android or iOS, all from the same code base.

That means you are not tied to any platform and can adapt to changes in the IT market place, now and in the future.

Doug Easterbrook, Arts Management Systems, Calgary, Canada“Most of all, we have always been cross-platform which is perhaps one of the single greatest features provided by Omnis Studio. The Omnis support team is fantastic to work with because they are so willing to add enhancements. I could go on…”

Doug Easterbrook, Arts Management Systems, Calgary, Canada


2. High productivity saves time & money

Omnis Studio lets you build desktop, web and/or mobile apps in less time and with fewer resources than with most other tools. It provides a complete, integrated development environment with a powerful method editor and a debugger that let you write and edit code quickly. So applications can be ready for deployment within weeks, not months.

Therefore developing with Omnis Studio supports hyper-agile development, shortens the time to market drastically and saves significant resources. This is an important advantage given the current shortage of developers in the market.

Sten-Erik Björling- Enviro Data, Sweden“I only need to use one single tool [Omnis Studio] for creating different solutions: stand-alone, client-server, html-based systems, web-services and web client-based systems… …This saves a lot of time and effort for me, allowing me to concentrate on developing the concepts, strategies and total solutions.”

Sten-Erik Björling– Enviro Data, Sweden


3. Connectivity and integration without borders

Whether you want to access WSDL or REST based Web Services or publish your own ones, whether you want to create your own JavaScript components using JSON or Java Objects or whether you want to keep using existing legacy systems and add web or mobile functionality – Omnis Studio integrates them all. Connectivity and integration is one of Omnis‘ biggest strengths and has been proven in thousands of applications for all types of businesses.

Sandro Pizzolato, Sales Manager of 888 Software Products S.r.l.“Omnis Studio technology allows us to optimize our development time, and rapidly update Matrix to comply with all the changes in regulations required by building contractors. This has allowed us to create one of the most successful ERP solutions for the construction industry.”

4. Multi database connectivity

Omnis Studio allows native connections to all leading databases, including Oracle, MS SQL Server, Sybase, DB2, MySQL, and PostgreSQL, as well as many JDBC and ODBC compliant databases, so you can connect to virtually any data source and transfer data from one to another. Omnis also supports SQLite which you can use for smaller projects, and is used in the tutorial.

Rudolf Bargholz, Chief Software Developer and joint Managing Director of Online Travel Services AG, Zurich, Switzerland.“No development environment is perfect, but Omnis Studio comes pretty close when it comes to creating database frontend applications.”

5. Outstanding technical support

Reliable and knowledgeable technical support can be key to the success of your project. At Omnis, you won’t be stuck in a waiting loop and your questions won’t be handled by automated systems, but you will always talk directly to dedicated and knowledgeable support engineers. Our consultants can provide all the help you need to build and maintain your application. The Support team works closely with the core development team, so you know you will always get the best possible technical help.

Daniel Herbert, JOVIS enterprises ltd, Switzerland“I have been developing applications in Omnis since 1989, and to date I haven’t seen any other development software that could match the efficiency of Omnis… Added to this, the support from Omnis is simply phenomenal: many other vendors should take this as the standard!”
