RhoMobile Suite is Motorola Solutions modern platform for enterprise mobility. It includes the RhoElements mobile app development framework, the RhoConnect mobile app integration server, the RhoHub cloud mobile development services and the RhoGallery mobile app management server. The general theme of the RhoMobile Suite is a “clean sheet of paper” for enterprise mobility: applying the best modern development practices, web techniques, open source and the power of the cloud to helping enterprises mobilize their apps faster and better.
This week we officially released the most exciting release of RhoMobile Suite ever: RhoMobile Suite 4.0. The biggest advances and most exciting news in RMS 4.0 centers on the cornerstone of the suite: RhoElements.
RhoElements is the industry’s leading enterprise mobile app development framework. It applies the best of modern development practices to the hard problems of enterprise mobility. It is the only mobile framework with a Model View Controller pattern and Object Relational Mapper for complex, information-centric apps. It is the only one of the MEAP/MADP enterprise platforms (such as Sybase and Antenna) to let you use HTML5 and your web skills to write rich native apps. And it is the only modern smartphone framework (as compared to PhoneGap and Appcelerator and the like) with out of the box data synchronization and enterprise backend integration capabilities.
Windows Phone 8
RhoElements has always had the broadest operating system support. In addition Motorola Solutions has always enjoyed a close and collaborative relationship with Microsoft. RhoElements is the only modern smartphone framework with support for Windows Mobile and Windows CE devices. RhoElements 4.0 adds Windows Phone 8 support to the set of supported operating systems. In addition RhoElements will allow development via Microsoft’s Visual Studio development environment.
Other RhoMobile Suite Updates
Other components of the suite will also be garnering major updates in the 4.0 release.
RhoGallery is a service available on RhoHub. In the RMS 4.0 timeframe (June) RhoGallery will offer integration with the Apple Store’s corporate Volume Purchasing Plan. It will also be made open source. As such it is a great example of good usage of RhoConnect and RhoElements.
Please download the release from here and start building your enterprise mobile apps faster and better.
