choice for deploying live technical knowledge and applications
over the Web
MapleNet for enterprise-wide solution deployment
Maple has long been the environment of choice for engineers and
scientists who need powerful technology to solve complex problems
and to capture and manage the underlying knowledge. But for large
enterprises, solving the problem is often the easy part; the
greater challenge is to deploy the solution to the people who
can benefit from it.
That’s where MapleNet comes in.
Share technical knowledge with anyone, anywhere
Powered by the renowned Maple technology, MapleNet allows you
to embed dynamic formulas, mathematical models, plots and animations
as live knowledge within a standard Web browser.
Gone are the days of static reports and charts. With MapleNet,
your colleagues, clients, and peers can run the computations
in your technical analyses live over the Web, without needing
any extra software or plug-ins on their machines, including Maple.

program for pricing an option it has designed. The bank
deploys it as a MapleNet application for its international
branches to run using market data from their own
Deliver powerful computations
through the Maple Document, and custom user interfaces.
Deliver powerful computations through the Maple
Technical documents created in Maple can be easily published
as MapleNet applications, and are backed by the Maple math engine,
bolstering your analyses with the world's most powerful numerical
solvers and intelligent symbolic computation.
With over 3,000 high-level mathematical functions, MapleNet applications
soar above standard VB applications and Java™ applets,
which are limited to arithmetic operations and hand-coded
• With Maple, tasks like optimization, control simulations, and
signal processing are no longer expensive add-on packages;
they are built-in tools right on your desktop - and you can make them
freely available through Maple documents on your web pages.
… and custom user interfaces
Powerful computation doesn't compromise elegance. MapleNet also allows you to create your own user interfaces and applications using other development tools, including JSP, .NET, Perl, and PHP.
Users don’t need expertise in your field to benefit
from your MapleNet applications; MapleNet lets you
user interface and the level of detail to show.
Manage technical knowledge.
|A key success factor for any engineering
and scientific undertaking is the generation and dissemination
of technical knowledge. However, capturing that knowledge
in a reusable form has been a major challenge and it
is only in this decade that efficient tools have emerged
to manage that knowledge across companies with thousands
of employees, and along lengthy supply chains.
|Scenario: An engineering
consultant develops an algorithm in Maple for computing
the required dimensions and materials for the supports
of a bridge, given the load, wind and temperatures
the bridge will have to sustain. The consultant deploys
the algorithm as a MapleNet application, which their
client can run over the Web without needing to understand
the theory behind the algorithm or to install the application
MapleNet is such a tool:
New employees from different offices can be trained on your
company’s methods, applications, and designs.
• Your enterprise can archive designs and problem solutions as
MapleNet Web pages in a single knowledge base, enabling efficient,
enterprise-wide peer review.
Supported by MapleNet’s distributed computing across
multiple servers, large numbers of users can run a MapleNet
application at the same time without tying up server resources.
|Scenario: A research physicist derives
a new model for the orbit of a particle near a black hole.
He puts the model on his home page as a Maplet application
driven by MapleNet. His colleagues, students, and the referees
for the journal to which he has submitted his results can
visit his home page and see what the model would predict
under any set of conditions
