Appeon 2013 - Product Release


** SUPER Hot News **

Appeon Announces General Availability of Appeon Mobile


Hong Kong - May 3, 2013 – Appeon® Corporation today announced the general availability of Appeon Mobile, the first cross-OS native-technology MEAP (mobile enterprise application platform) for SAP developers.  Appeon Mobile works with most SAP technology infrastructure products, including SAP PowerBuilder, NetWeaver, Afaria, SQL Anywhere, Adaptive Server Enterprise, IQ and HANA.  Unlike typical MEAP, Appeon Mobile is powered by native technology that delivers the best performance, memory management, application features, and user interface.  Appeon Mobile is also the first MEAP to deliver new multi-tasking user interface paradigm that empowers users to work with multiple screens of a single application in an intuitive and familiar manner.

“SAP PowerBuilder is the easiest and most productive IDE I have ever laid eyes on,” said Armeen Mazda, CEO, Appeon Corporation.  “We chose to leverage PowerBuilder for the design-time of Appeon Mobile so we could truly make building mobile apps a piece of cake.  This allowed us to focus our engineering efforts on the performance and features.  Our early adopters confirm that Appeon Mobile is superior in performance and features to popular mobile frameworks, such as Titanium, Phone Gap, and Sencha.”  Appeon Mobile enables SAP developers to rapidly build mobile applications with the PowerBuilder IDE.
 Existing programming skills as well as existing code and DataWindows can be leveraged.  Now mobile applications can be built in just weeks instead of months using one development tool for all popular mobile platforms: iOS, Android, and Windows Phone.
 

Appeon Mobile Features

From the PowerBuilder IDE, Appeon Mobile generates native mobile applications that deploy universally to all supported mobile platforms. DataWindows, nested reports, and many rich PowerBuilder functionalities previously unimaginable on mobile devices can be at the users’ fingertips. These rich mobile applications are database-driven, powered by either a Java or .NET middleware and is compatible with leading commercial databases, including SAP, Oracle, IBM, and Microsoft. Server-side integration is also supported with native Java or .NET technology.
  • Powerful Desktop-like Apps – Develop powerful data-driven business apps with virtually the same level of functionality as traditional desktop applications, plus take advantage of mobile functionality, such as GPS, camera, microphone, etc.
  • Codeless UI Resizing – Adapt applications, quickly and easily, to display properly on any mobile device without having to modify any code or perform any calculations.
  • Multitasking User Interface – Take advantage of the highly productive MDI multitasking user interface on mobile devices, which is uniquely offered in a familiar yet touch optimized manner.
  • Cross-OS Native Mobile – Deploy a SINGLE code set as native mobile apps to leading mobile OS (iOS, Android, Windows Phone), even if using the mobile device SDK (camera, GPS, printer, etc.).
  • Always Up-to-Date – Keep apps automatically up-to-date (including on iOS) without any additional client software or user intervention.
  • Cross-platform Server – Deploy to either leading Java or .NET application servers as well as leading public clouds powered by Amazon, Microsoft, VMWare or Rackspace.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
