Syware, Inc. has released mEnable 2.0, to provide mobile users with wireless access to enterprise data and run database applications on handhelds and connect to ODBC-enabled databases in real-time at any time or place. mEnable complements the company’s Visual CE software product line, a software that allows users and developers to rapidly create database applications, without programming, that can be deployed on Windows Mobile devices.
For those who cannot rely on a continuous connection to server data, Syware offers mEnable Occasionally Connected and Visual CE. When the network is available, users read from and write to the enterprise server. When coverage is lost, they work locally. When coverage is restored, the local and server databases are synchronized and users resume working with the server.
"By combining mEnable and Visual CE 9, users can trade in dated, paper-based systems and processes for an easy-to-implement wireless solution that enables people to: collect data remotely and view critical information locked in back-end servers; have organization-wide automated reporting to make key decisions and stay ahead of the competition; and have better communication between the office and representatives in the field. All of this can be accomplished, with virtually no programming, using Visual CE and mEnable. Support for TCP/IP allows mEnable to work on any LAN, WAN, or Internet connection using the TCP/IP protocol. The network can be based on local Ethernet, Internet protocol, 802.11 wireless LAN, GPRSM, or Bluetooth." says the company
The latest release of mEnable supports the Visual Basic .NET and Visual CE communities. Developers can leverage their knowledge of VB .NET to create VB .NET applications. Additionally
The software is priced at US$499 for the 15383 mEnable SDK plus 10 run-time licenses. mEnable single user license: US$99; owners of Visual CE Personal Edition can get mEnable for $69. The mEnable SDK packaged with 100 run-times is US$1999.
