Backbase to Deliver the First AJAX SDK for Apple's iPhone

AJAX developers will be able to develop and deploy RIAs for iPhone using Backbase Enterprise AJAX Framework

The AJAX Company Backbase announced that its Enterprise AJAX software suite will support Apple's long-anticipated iPhone. Aligning its development with Apple's unfolding strategy for the sexy new device, Backbase has added support for the new platform, including Apple’s Web browser for iPhone, Safari 3, and the code-named Leopard operating system. The Backbase SDK enables developers to bring Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) and rich user interfaces to the iPhone.



Apple officially announced the choice of AJAX as the iPhone SDK at the recent Worldwide Developer Conference in San Francisco. “Developers and users alike are going to be very surprised and pleased at how great these applications look and work on iPhone,” said Apple CEO Steve Jobs. “Our innovative approach, using Web 2.0-based standards, lets developers create amazing new applications while keeping the iPhone secure and reliable.”

In coming months, Backbase will also deliver Widgets and components designed to take advantage of iPhone specifications.

“As the leader in the AJAX space, we want to make sure that our technology supports new platforms,” said Mark Schiefelbein, VP Research and Development at Backbase.  “With Apple selecting AJAX as the only SDK for its iPhone, the decision to support the new platform was an easy one for us.”

“Because of our AJAX dedication and focus, support for the iPhone will reinforce Backbase's technology leadership role in the AJAX space,” said Backbase President and CEO Jouk Pleiter. “It ensures that customers developing websites and Web applications using our technology can fully leverage Apple's iPhone and OSX platforms.”

In addition to its Enterprise AJAX Framework, Backbase provides a set of development tools designed to significantly improve developer productivity.  With its recently introduced AJAX 360 service, Backbase is a full solution provider with a comprehensive set of services complementing its software.  Customers can rely on Backbase for AJAX-based RIA architecture expertise, AJAX Training, Professional Development Services and Enterprise Premium Support.  Backbase also works closely with standards organizations and strategic technology vendors to ensure that enterprises get maximum value from their AJAX investments.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
