Mountain View, Calif., March 31, 2010 — Caspio, Inc. (www.caspio.com), the leading cloud database platform, today announced the availability of Section 508-compliant web applications to enable government and corporate websites to meet the latest web accessibility standards. Every application built with Caspio since March 2010 is automatically Section 508-compliant and accessible to people with disabilities. The company is the only cloud platform to offer Section 508-compliant application deployment without coding.
Caspio’s technology for rapid application development has been deployed by a growing number of federal, state and local government agencies to address Open Government, Gov 2.0 and eGovernment initiatives. These organizations include the United States Postal Service, California Department of Health, Indiana.gov, Georgia.gov, and the City of Chicago.
Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act obligates Federal agencies to make all of their electronic and information technology accessible to people with disabilities, in a manner that is comparable to access available to others. For more information about Section 508, visit http://www.section508.gov.
Prior to Caspio’s Section 508-compliant application technology, the programming of database-driven applications typically required a thorough understanding of the Rehabilitation Act as well as additional expenses for development and testing. Now, Caspio’s point-and-click platform eliminates the need to code applications from scratch and allows clients to invest their time and resources into more mission-critical activities.
Today, Caspio powers over 300,000 applications for government agencies, universities, small-to-medium sized businesses, Fortune-500 companies, and over 80% of the largest American newspaper websites.
For more information on how to launch Section 508-compliant apps and eGovernment initiatives cost-effectively using Caspio, contact Caspio Government Services at www.caspio.com/government.
