Data2go Achieves Microsoft Partner Product Certification for 'Rapport'
May 01, 2007, Press Dispensary. The 'Rapport(TM)' Windows Mobile application development platform from Data2go (http://www.data2go.com) now has full Microsoft product certification after independent testing by VeriTest. The certification means Rapport (TM) meets Microsoft’s partner product standards and customers are assured of the high quality standards to which Rapport (TM) is developed.
Rapport(TM) is a highly productive development environment that helps customers build mobile applications against any existing business application, making it fully interactive over a Windows Mobile device, such as a PDA. The technology is designed to give customers rapid payback because there's no need to modify the underlying business application at all.
Rapport’s(TM) technology is based on Microsoft’s latest mobile architecture and modern communication standards so customers have an open platform for future growth. Data security is assured through password protection, user profiles and integration with customers’ existing network security methods.
Rapport(TM) can be applied across various industry sectors. Data2go will release a series of accelerators designed to pre-configure the system ready for many common business applications.
Antony Perrett, managing director at Data2go, comments: “Rapport(TM) achieving Microsoft certification demonstrates our commitment to product quality and underlines our relationship with the Microsoft development environment. Demand for mobile applications is increasing rapidly as businesses feel the need for employees to become more productive while working away from their office systems. Providing a way to do this securely will be one of the main challenges facing IT directors over the next decade."
He adds: "Our customers can achieve this goal because Rapport(TM) is quick to deploy and builds on existing IT systems without the need for redevelopment work. The alternative is complete system redevelopment. In many cases, this is prohibitively expensive and totally unnecessary.”
