Seregon Supports App Dev on PlayBook

— January 19, 2011

Seregon Solutions Inc., a provider of mobile enterprise application development software, is supporting for the BlackBerry PlayBook. Developers worldwide already use DragonRAD to quickly and easily build native enterprise applications for BlackBerry, Android, and Windows Mobile devices. With the announcement, Seregon expands its cross-platform mobile application development solution to include the highly anticipated BlackBerry PlayBook.

“We believe the Playbook will be a game changer in many industries,” says  Julian White, CEO of Seregon. “Our decision to support the PlayBook demonstrates our level of commitment to the BlackBerry platform. With the upcoming launch of the DragonRAD beta program, developers will be able to quickly and easily build native applications for the PlayBook, in addition to other popular mobile platforms.”

DragonRAD is a mobile enterprise application development platform that allows developers to seamlessly connect with backend enterprise systems and build powerful, data-driven applications across a variety of devices and operating systems. DragonRAD simplifies backend integration, allowing developers to quickly pull enterprise data from virtually any database or web service and create and deploy native business applications. An easy-to-use design environment allows for rapid application development without the need to write Java or C# - the languages required for Android, BlackBerry, and Windows Mobile development.

A significant number of Seregon's customers including Xenium Solutions Limited, a provider of business software solutions for BlackBerry smartphones, have expressed their interest in leveraging DragonRAD to build applications for the BlackBerry PlayBook.

“DragonRAD's thick client architecture and backend synchronization were critical features for the development of mobile enterprise applications,” says Bruce Murchie, CEO at Xenium. “Despite the predominance of BlackBerry Bold and Curve smartphones in the marketplace, we anticipate that many enterprise customers will be eager to extend deployment to the forthcoming PlayBook, provided that the same architecture will be supported. With this announcement, we know we will be able to satisfy that requirement.”
