Unisys Agile Business Suite is a unique Model Driven development environment for mission critical solutions. It helps you capitalize on change rather than simply respond to it. It supports design, development, generation, and ongoing maintenance of high-performance, highly available, enterprise-class applications.
Agile Business Suite provides a development environment in which business and technical professionals truly collaborate, directing changes and designing new capabilities at the business level. It encourages people to focus on what an application should do and not worry about how it should be coded or deployed.

Agile Business Suite integrates state-of-the-art development tools from Unisys, Microsoft®, and others.
"Our changing business environment introduces the need for additional information to be captured and processed, as well as the need to enable process changes and enhance how we interact with business partners and clients. EAE and AB Suite allow us to respond to these requests in a more efficient manner."
— Scott Minkel, Vice President of Information Services, United Fire Group
