A developer will no longer have to chose which mobile platform to develop apps for, as they can develop for all in one go. All phones become one.
Istanbul, Turkey (PRWEB) October 8, 2009
Turkey, an emerging leader in the deployment of electronic and mobile applications for government services, has chosen Aradiom to roll out a wide array of citizen services for mobile phones. The Turkish President Abdullah Gül attended the unveiling today during the CeBIT Eurasia 2009 conference, trying out the application and asking questions of the developers. Aradiom Mobile Framework™, the proprietary platform behind its applications, was a natural choice because of the framework's unmatched flexibility: built to support more mobile devices than any other in the world, from smart phones to the simplest devices, Aradiom's framework means the applications will work across the widest possible variety of mobile platforms including iPhone, Android, Windows Mobile, Symbian and over 300 phone models from LG, Sony Ericsson, Nokia, Samsung and others. This unmatched device support allows the greatest possible connectivity between government agencies and citizens who need secure, yet easy, on-the-go access to their services.
Additionally, one of the most impressive features of the Aradiom Mobile Framework™, is that it maintains a modular device library to which new phone models are constantly added as they are released by their manufacturers, ensuring futureproof functionality for apps built today even on tomorrow's phones.
"At Aradiom, we solve the device fragmentation problem. None of the phone manufacturers wanted their phones to be commoditized like the PC, and as such made sure they were different with minimal cross compatibility. This of course stifled the development of apps. What we do is level that playing field of incompatibility, giving developers one creation environment and almost all phones as a potential market, not just a few selected brands or models," says Selahaddin Karatash, CEO of Aradiom. "A developer will no longer have to chose which mobile platform to develop apps for, as they can develop for all in one go. All phones become one."
Among the reasons why the AMF was chosen to deliver mGovernment services, was the security required, as SMS was not seen as secure enough, which is how such services have traditionally been delivered to the mobile. As such, an on phone application with authentication was paramount. The new mGovernment application incorporates extensive security including mSignature and differing levels of encryption. Additionally, there had to be as broad device support as possible. As a national service, one couldn't just offer convenience to those with iPhones and Blackberrys. It had to be democratized to make sure even citizens with the humblest of mobile phones can avail of such services. Aradiom also offered rapid deployment, the most extensive device support and the highest commitment to security with multiple layers for maximum effectiveness and ease of use.
The Aradiom Mobile Framework will be made widely available to the developer community later this year, via web based tools, along with the release of a number of high profile apps to showcase the strength of the platform, revolutionizing app design for mobiles as we know it. In particular, all Aradiom apps have the ability to integrate strong security with the option of built in 2 Factor Authentication (2FA) in the form of an embedded soft token. Aradiom (http://www.aradiom.com) is a privately held company founded in 2002, and operates out of offices in Turkey and Switzerland.
mGovernment was commissioned by the Turkish Ministry of Communication, and moves government services from the desktop to the mobile phone securely and efficiently.
