Syncfusion Launches Orubase Cross-Platform Mobile Application Development Tool for .NET Developers

Syncfusion, Inc., a leading provider of components for Windows development, today announced the release of Orubase, a cross-platform mobile application development tool that enables .NET developers to easily build hybrid mobile applications. Orubase includes native wrapper frameworks for the iOS, Android, and Windows Phone platforms. As a result, .NET developers can leverage their existing web development skills to produce powerful, 100-percent native mobile applications that work on a broad range of devices.

A recent survey by analyst firm IDC, sponsored by SAP/Appcelerator, found mobile application developers' biggest challenges included dealing with multiple operating systems, dealing with multiple device classes, learning many languages (such as Java and Objective-C), building a compelling user interface/user experience, managing many code bases, and integrating data sources. For enterprises with Microsoft-related assets, Orubase solves all of these challenges.

Using the Orubase Wizard, developers can effortlessly build starter projects. The Wizard creates a template with native navigation components for mobile web, iOS, Android and Windows Phone platforms. Generated projects are ready to run and can be customized easily within the respective IDEs.

“Orubase saves .NET developers time and makes their job easier by solving many of the challenges associated with fragmentation. It provides an extensive set of mobile web controls that can be directly used in web applications to produce stunning platform-specific user interfaces,” said Daniel Jebaraj, vice president of Syncfusion.

Key features include:

  • Truly native navigation—key navigation elements that control the user’s navigation experience are implemented with native code.
  • Complete bridge to native application programming interfaces (APIs) on each of the supported device platforms—common native APIs such as contacts, notifications, accelerometer, and camera are readily supported and work seamlessly with applications.
  • More than 18 well-tested mobile controls have been implemented and work exclusively with the standard Microsoft ASP.NET MVC framework. Automatic platform-specific rendering enables mobile controls to automatically render iOS, Android and Windows Phone interfaces from a single view.
  • Support for encryption—developers have access to advanced encryption support.
  • Leverages the Microsoft data-access stack to integrate data from any source including Oracle, SQL Server, SQL Azure, SQLite, enterprise ERP systems, web services, and more. Use language-integrated query (LINQ) or any other API available from within the .NET environment to access data.

The web components and hybrid layer of Orubase are provided by Syncfusion. Orubase does not contain third-party tools or components, and is backed by Syncfusion’s end-to-end technical support. Syncfusion recently used Orubase to build iOS and Android mobile applications for its online support system, Direct-Trac, which are now available at Apple's App Store and Google Play.

"Orubase enables us to deliver custom native apps within our DoctorDirect product line to our customers. We especially like how Orubase works with an MVC code base," said Dean Newton, Director of Business Development at NurseLineMD. "Syncfusion has an unparalleled track record when it comes to .NET development tools and their customer support team is a true partner when challenges present themselves."

As we enter the final week before the 19th International Cloud Expo | @ThingsExpo in Santa Clara, CA, it's time for me to reflect on six big topics that will be important during the show. Hybrid Cloud: This general-purpose term seems to provide a comfort zone for many enterprise IT managers. It sounds reassuring to be able to work with one of the major public-cloud providers like AWS or Microsoft Azure while still maintaining an on-site presence.
Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
In his general session at 19th Cloud Expo, Manish Dixit, VP of Product and Engineering at Dice, discussed how Dice leverages data insights and tools to help both tech professionals and recruiters better understand how skills relate to each other and which skills are in high demand using interactive visualizations and salary indicator tools to maximize earning potential. Manish Dixit is VP of Product and Engineering at Dice. As the leader of the Product, Engineering and Data Sciences team at D...
I’m a huge fan of open source DevOps tools. I’m also a huge fan of scaling open source tools for the enterprise. But having talked with my fair share of companies over the years, one important thing I’ve learned is that you can’t scale your release process using open source tools alone. They simply require too much scripting and maintenance when used that way. Scripting may be fine for smaller organizations, but it’s not ok in an enterprise environment that includes many independent teams and to...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
SYS-CON Events announced today that Dataloop.IO, an innovator in cloud IT-monitoring whose products help organizations save time and money, has been named “Bronze Sponsor” of SYS-CON's 20th International Cloud Expo®, which will take place on June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY. Dataloop.IO is an emerging software company on the cutting edge of major IT-infrastructure trends including cloud computing and microservices. The company, founded in the UK but now based in San Fran...
Monitoring of Docker environments is challenging. Why? Because each container typically runs a single process, has its own environment, utilizes virtual networks, or has various methods of managing storage. Traditional monitoring solutions take metrics from each server and applications they run. These servers and applications running on them are typically very static, with very long uptimes. Docker deployments are different: a set of containers may run many applications, all sharing the resource...
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and...
