Syclo Announces Agentry 5.1 at Its Fifth Annual Mobile Conference

Share Article

Syclo builds more resiliency, ease of use into the new version of its Agentry mobile application platform.

For many, mobile applications are no longer a 'nice-to-have,' but a mission-critical tool that must be always available, easy to scale and inexpensive to manage. We've done a lot of work lately to ensure Syclo meets these objectives.

Syclo announced today the new release of its highly acclaimed Agentry mobile enterprise application platform. Supported by a growing global user base and diverse partner community, Syclo continues to invest heavily in making its flagship product more scalable, resilient and easier to use. With 5.1, the Agentry platform is gaining powerful mobile device management capabilities, better server clustering, and multiple enhancements to the development environment, testing tool and on-device application behavior.

Some of the new features, like mobile device management (MDM), aim to reduce day-to-day management costs for large mobile deployments. With capabilities including mobile asset management, update and patch management, and remote troubleshooting, Agentry MDM helps companies minimize employee downtime and get the most out of their devices through better use, simpler deployment and easier support. Other improvements such as better server clustering target higher performance and business continuity through use of multiple or redundant 64-bit Windows, Unix and Linux servers. Another set of enhancements made the on-device application more versatile and easier to use. This was accomplished by better navigation, easier incorporation of data from on-board peripherals into the mobile application and providing an open client framework for tighter, more seamless integration with third-party applications like GIS.

"We're seeing a big shift in how our customers think about mobility," said Rich Padula, Syclo founder and CEO. "For many, mobile applications are no longer a 'nice-to-have,' but a mission-critical tool that must be always available, easy to scale and inexpensive to manage. We've done a lot of work lately to ensure Syclo meets these objectives."

Syclo's other area of major investment is in enhancing its development and testing environments to meet the needs of the many customers and partners who use Agentry to develop mobile applications. By providing deeper integration with the Eclipse development framework and new ways to build and test complex business logic, Agentry 5.1 speeds the entire application development cycle - resulting in quicker times to market and greater flexibility.

"Our focus at Syclo continues to be on providing easy-to-deploy, high-ROI mobile applications for our target markets," said Paul Chiapuris, Syclo EVP of Development. "Making Agentry a more powerful development platform drives this strategy by letting Syclo and our partners develop, test and configure these applications quickly, cost-effectively and reliably."

Syclo's fifth annual mobile conference went virtual this year, drawing thousands of attendees to an online event for several weeks of learning, networking and show-and-tell on the latest in mobile technology and applications. The conference includes a community-style forum, multiple on-demand sessions and sponsor showcase, and will remain available to Syclo users and partners through August 1st, 2009. Agentry 5.1 will be generally available at the end of August 2009.
