TurboWorx today announced its applications for Mac OS X. The suite enables academic research organizations to create components of proprietary, internally developed, and open source programs: "Once a vendor develops TurboWorx 'wrappers' for its applications, libraries of these components can be assembled and made accessible throughout a university, to companies, and around the world. Constructing workflows is now a matter of pulling together those components needed to run that particular process, enabling workflow collaboration and creating efficiencies in the discovery process. It is available in Builder (component/developer environment), Group (single-user with five workers), and Enterprise (with web services) editions.
