DragonRAD™ 4.0 delivers the power of a Mobile Enterprise Application Platform and eliminates the cost of runtime licenses
OTTAWA and SAN FRANCISCO – MobilityWire® – September 27, 2010
Seregon Solutions Inc., a provider of Mobile Enterprise Application Platform software, today announced the availability of DragonRAD™ 4.0 – a rapid application development environment that simplifies and reduces the time and cost of developing enterprise applications for BlackBerry® smartphones. DragonRAD 4.0 is an evolution of SeregonMAP that adds many new features to the popular drag-and-drop enterprise application development platform. Using DragonRAD, enterprise application developers can build complex mobile applications in a fraction of the time of traditional development and deploy them royalty free to an unlimited number of users.
“High cost and technical complexity are often cited as the biggest impediments to the development of mobile enterprise applications”, said Julian White, founder and CEO of Seregon. “DragonRAD combines the power and flexibility of a Mobile Enterprise Application Platform, but without the cost of runtime licenses that are incurred every time an app is deployed to a new device. With DragonRAD, you can literally ‘build an app in 30 minutes’ and deploy it royalty free to an unlimited number of users.”
DragonRAD simplifies the integration and synchronization of backend systems with the built-in functions of the BlackBerry Application Platform, like contacts, calendars, payments, location-based services, maps, camera, media players, and other native device functions. Key features of the DragonRAD mobile development platform include:
- Easy-to-use drag and drop design environment;
- Flexible multimedia screen layouts;
- Support for all BlackBerry smartphones, OS releases (4.3 and later), and screen resolutions;
- Camera-based barcode scanning;
- Seamless integration with all SQL databases and Web Services (using custom data connectors);
- One-button publish for over-the-air delivery;
- Powerful data triggers, event handlers, and push notification.
“DragonRAD’s ability to create mobile apps quickly and economically solves a major dilemma in the enterprise mobility market,” said Bruce Murchie, CEO of Xenium Solutions, an international provider of business software solutions for BlackBerry smartphones. “Enterprises can now deploy pilot solutions and begin to experience the benefits of enterprise mobility with minimal cost and technical complexity.”
