Persistent Announces STAMP Mobility Framework for Development of Premium J2ME Mobile Applications

Launches First STAMP-Based Application on BlackBerry App World

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - October 22, 2009) - Persistent Systems, a leader in software product development services, today announced SmarTphone Application Mobility Platform (STAMP), a mobility framework for developing rich and user-friendly mobile applications for JAVA-enabled phones.

Persistent's STAMP framework enables faster end-to-end mobile application development ensuring optimized performance, consistent user experience and exceptional quality. J2ME is the most ubiquitous mobile application platform available today. By leveraging J2ME common features into its own development framework, STAMP offers an innovative approach to help mobile ISVs save up to 60% on development efforts. With over 18 months of development behind it, the STAMP framework enables rapid porting to new devices, allowing developers to easily cover a wide range of J2ME-based phones and Smartphones.

The recent Gartner report on worldwide Smartphone sales indicates that 86.3% of the Smartphone market consists of Java-enabled phones (Symbian, RIM, Windows and Palm). The exponential growth of this industry has turned it into a breeding ground for innovation, with new applications being released to consumers almost daily.

"Persistent recognizes the need for a framework that would allow mobile application providers to focus on application feature development without having to worry about portability, interoperability, and certification issues and maintenance overheads," said Hari Haran, president, Persistent Systems Inc. "With Persistent's innovative and well-tested STAMP framework, mobile application developers and carriers can easily build and deploy applications on an array of devices and systems, enabling providers to get their products to market faster and with higher quality. This kind of breakthrough solution accelerator is a result of Persistent's nearly two decades of exclusive focus on application development."

Persistent also recently launched the company's first STAMP-based application, "StockFolio" on BlackBerry App World. StockFolio, built on the JAVA-based platform, earned rapid approval from RIM and is available for download for over 17 BlackBerry models.

Persistent's mobility practice has considerable experience in developing native applications using the STAMP framework. Key STAMP benefits include:

--  Faster time to market - reusable components - save up to 60% of
    engineering efforts.
--  Release a stable application - better ROI with reduced maintenance
    costs. STAMP has already been tested on a variety of devices.
--  Broader set of services, technologies and application programming
    interfaces compared to other platforms. Ease in mobile app development for
    developers with no experience in this domain.
--  Improved device footprint which covers most of devices in market with
    a single solution to handle a broad array of mobile devices.
    

With more than a decade of experience in mobile application development, Persistent also has the expertise in all major mobile platforms, including BlackBerry, iPhone, J2ME, BREW, Windows Mobile, Symbian, Palm, Embedded Linux and partnerships with Android Open Handset, BlackBerry, Nokia Trolltech and Motorola Symbol. Persistent's mobility domain experience also includes the development of carrier-grade/enterprise class applications, including push-email, social networking, enterprise mobility and PIM services.
