Novalys and Appeon announce partnership to distribute Appeon Mobile worldwide
Paris, March 7, 2012--- Novalys SAS announced today it has entered into a strategic partnership with Appeon Corporation to distribute the first-ever mobility solution for the Sybase PowerBuilder community. Leveraging Appeon’s decade of experience in PowerBuilder deployment and its core technology platform, Appeon will develop a mobile deployment solution for PowerBuilder – Appeon Mobile. Appeon Mobile will offer the simplest, fastest, and lowest-cost mobile development option for the PowerBuilder developer community. Under the agreement, Novalys will market, sell, and support Appeon Mobile worldwide.
In response to growing demand from the PowerBuilder community for mobility, Appeon Mobile will enable developers to rapidly build mobile applications exclusively with the Sybase PowerBuilder and using only existing programming skills. This empowers developers to leverage existing investments in PowerBuilder and the unbeatable productivity that PowerBuilder offers. For example, line-of-business mobile applications can be built in just weeks instead of months. Moreover, it will no longer be necessary to use different tools, programming skills, and build multiple projects for each platform, such as Objective-C for iOS and Java for Android.
"Appeon Mobile is really exciting for PowerBuilder; it allows developers to meet evolving business needs, as mobility becomes a necessity” said Christophe Dufourmantelle, CEO of Novalys. "Now, PowerBuilder developers can build data-driven enterprise apps without the productivity loss and headaches inherent to using standalone tools like Xcode."
From the PowerBuilder IDE, Appeon Mobile will automatically generate native mobile applications that deploy universally to all supported mobile devices, including iPhones, iPads, Android phones and tablets. DataWindows, nested reports, and many rich PowerBuilder functionalities previously unimaginable on mobile devices will be at users’ fingertips. These rich mobile applications are database-driven, powered by either a Java or .NET middleware that is compatible with leading commercial databases, including Sybase, Microsoft, Oracle, and IBM. Server-side integration is supported with Java, .NET, Web Services and/or Sybase Unwired Platform (SUP).
"Novalys is the best source of PowerBuilder companion products, offering high-value-add solutions, such as VisualExpert, VisualGuard, and Customization Studio," said Armeen Mazda, CEO of Appeon. "Appeon is excited to have Novalys as our PowerBuilder mobility partner."
