Project Siena Enables Business Users to Create Mobile Apps for the Enterprise

Microsoft has announced the availability of the beta release of Project Siena.

Project Siena is a beta Windows 8 app that lets anyone (particularly business experts, business analysts, consultants, and other business users) create powerful business apps in just minutes, via a Windows 8-style interface, for today's mobile devices. Using little more than PowerPoint- and Excel-level skills, non-technical business users can create a whole new category of powerful apps for the device-first and cloud-connected world, with the potential to transform today’s business processes and customer interactions.

Siena provides an easy document editing experience: put your information on the canvas, compose and style it, and add custom logic and interactivity using the power of Excel expressions. It works well with corporate and web data: SharePoint lists, Excel and Azure tables, RSS feeds and REST services. The authored apps are IT-friendly. Since the output is just HTML/JavaScript, developers can also open up and extend them in their favorite HTML/JavaScript programming tools, if needed.
