Convertigo Unveils New Back-End Integration Platform for Rapid Mobile Application Development

Convertigo Mobilizer Gives Instant Access to Any Application, Data and Business Logic in the Enterprise; Reduces Development Times and Budgets by up to 90%

PARIS and SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 6, 2011) - Convertigo announced today a mobile enterprise application integration platform called Convertigo Mobilizer, which makes back-end application and data integration with mobile devices up to 90% more efficient when compared to traditional point-to-point methods.

With Convertigo Mobilizer, it's never been easier to build innovative applications that connect rich enterprise information sources with the latest mobile phones and tablets with features such as GPS, camera, 4G, etc. In a typical organization, mobile application integration needs quickly evolve from a simple scenario, such as connecting one device to one web data source, to a 'many-device-to-many-asset' integration scenario. And that's when a painful back-end bottleneck occurs -- IT professionals are then faced with integrating various device platforms, security protocols, enterprise applications and data sources -- many of which have no API.

Unlike most integration software platforms on the market today, Convertigo can instantly access (in read- and-write mode) any data and business logic from any enterprise data source or application. This means:

  • There is no need to rewrite legacy applications to fit the modern infrastructure. They can be used as is, non-intrusively.
  • The most valuable enterprise business logic assets can be reused instantly as well.
  • Developers have immediate access to any enterprise information resource.
  • New business logic and processing can be added to existing assets.
  • All mobile development and back-end integration is done through a single integrated Eclipse-based IDE.

With these capabilities, projects that used to cost millions and take months or years now can be delivered at a fraction of that time and money.

Cross-platform Benefits for Developers

Mobile application development professionals are consistently amazed by the productivity gains made possible by Convertigo Mobilizer. They include:

  • The ability to write applications in HTML5 JavaScript instead of complex languages and seamless connections to all enterprise back-ends and web applications.
  • Native application support for all major mobile operating systems -- iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Symbian.
  • The ability to use and leverage industry standard development tools and open source mobile frameworks -- Sencha Touch, jQuery Mobile, PhoneGap.
  • Support for SQL, web services including SOAP, REST and JSON.
  • Powerful server-based business logic assembly, and the ability to add existing business logic as needed.
  • Convertigo does not hold any business logic in the mobile application; it stays on the Convertigo server. This ensures seamless reuse for different applications.
