As our customers deploy increasingly diverse applications to corporate users and consumers, the need to support more devices and provide a high level of user experience becomes paramount
Hoffman Estates, IL (PRWEB) July 13, 2011
Syclo announced today the release of Agentry 6, the newest version of its acclaimed mobile enterprise application platform (MEAP). Unveiled at the 7th annual Syclo Mobile Conference, Agentry 6 lets companies quickly create intuitive, cross-platform mobile apps for their workforce and their customers.
One major area of improvement with Agentry 6 is was the ability to deliver a more intuitive, native user experience on the widest range of mobile devices. Syclo achieved this by redesigning its client applications for Windows, Windows Mobile, Apple iOS and RIM BlackBerry, and adding full support for Android. With Agentry 6, software designers get increased flexibility in configuring user interfaces to ensure that each application looks and behaves exactly as expected on each operating system.
“With Agentry 6.0, we had to achieve two major goals,” said Paul Chiapuris, Syclo EVP of Software Engineering. “On the one hand, we had to make it easy for our customers and partners to create the high-featured, complex mobile applications that Syclo is known for. On the other, Agentry needed to offer an easy-to-learn, repeatable environment for development of lightweight productivity and consumer apps that our customers now need. I think we’ve hit both these goals with this release.”
Syclo’s other area of focus for Agentry 6 is the Agentry Editor, a mobile development environment in use by over 2,000 developers worldwide. The toolset received major updates aimed at improving ease of use and developer productivity. Some of the new features include improvements to the rule editor, faster Editor storage layer and better team configuration capabilities. The latter allows teams of developers to efficiently collaborate on creating and configuring large-scale, complex mobile solutions.
“As our customers deploy increasingly diverse applications to corporate users and consumers, the need to support more devices and provide a high level of user experience becomes paramount,” said Rich Padula, Syclo President and CEO. “Agentry 6 meets that need by natively running on every major mobile platform to support all other devices on the market. By giving our customers native applications without the need to maintain separate code sets for each device, Syclo has solved one of the greatest challenges of today’s mobile enterprise.”
Agentry 6 is now available to Syclo customers and partners as part of Syclo’s Early Access Program. The release will be generally available in Q3 2011.
