By far the majority of DevMan clients prefer and accept our more cost-effective cloud-based solution.
We take care of all the hardware and software needed for your own secure instance of DevMan.
Clients who prefer an in-house solution will need to provide their own hardware and software.
Although the DevMan application may run on less powerful hardware and operating systems, we do not believe it will be adequate for production work in these environments. Therefore we strongly advise high-end servers to reduce delays and maximise end-user buy-in.
As there is an application (front-end) and database (back-end) component, we recommend the database and application be installed on separate servers.
Network bandwidth also plays a very important role and needs to be matched with server performance to optimise user experience.
Where performance is poor you can upgrade the server with a faster processor and adding more memory.
Operating and database software must be kept up to date.
Our Support Team can provide a document with detailed specifications for the servers and client computers.
DevMan has been written and tested to run on the most widely used browsers:
We will ensure that the software runs on newer browser versions as these become widely used and stable.

Internet advertisers use popup windows or advertisement to display their messages.
In the case of DevMan the popup blocker prevents informational or “wanted” popups from displaying.
You will need to switch off the popup blocker. See How do I remove a popup blocker?
In Microsoft Internet Explorer select Tools > Internet options. If you are a new user you will find more information here.
Select the Privacy tab and then select Pop-up blocker > Settings
Add your DevMan URL into the Address box, and select Add.
Note: If the alert persists, then you may have another toolbar installed in Microsoft Internet Explorer that has its own pop-up blocker. Toolbars that have their own pop-up blockers include Google Toolbar, Yahoo Toolbar, MSN Live Toolbar and Desktop Search Toolbar. Find the Settings button on these respectively and turn off pop-up blocker.
If you have other toolbars such as a Google or Yahoo toolbar, these could also be blocking popups.
To disable the Google Toolbar popup blocker go to Settings > Options.
If the alert still persists uninstall all toolbars that were installed after Microsoft Internet Explorer was installed (you may need to consult your system administrator with this).
Popup blocker may display in different ways depending on such factors as operating system and browser. Here is one typical manifestation within the Microsoft environment.
Click on the message and you will be asked if you want to allow this popup temporarily or allow popups permanently from this site.
If you accepted the temporary option (which will occur every time) you will see ...
If you accepted the recommended option "Always allow pop-ups from this site" you will be prompted again ...
Click the "Yes" button to allow all pop-ups from within the Development Manager intranet and continue. This is a safe option and recommended since you will not be bothered again. Read more...
