Products[edit]

Tom Sawyer Software offers API library-based Software Development Kits (SDKs) and graphics-based design software (IDEs) to provide application development teams with a high degree of flexibility[citation needed] .

The API-based products include Tom Sawyer Visualization, Tom Sawyer Layout, and Tom Sawyer Analysis. These products are available on several software platforms and enable extended customization[citation needed] .

[Tom Sawyer Perspectives, a graphics-based product, exploits a project-based approach to facilitate design sharing and reuse[citation needed], isolation from technology change[citation needed], independence from software platforms[citation needed] , and decoupling from data sources for greater flexibility[citation needed].
