Announcing DevExtreme Tools to Enable Multi-Channel Experiences
Glendale, California — September 17, 2012 — DevExpress, a leading global software development company, announced today the next release in the DXv2 generation of software development tools, DevExtreme ENTERPRISE, an innovative suite of tools and solutions for developers who want to create stunning, multi-screen applications across platforms and devices. DevExtreme is available in limited preview today and will be released to market on December 3, 2012.
“The technology landscape has changed and developers are faced with the unenviable task of creating unified digital experiences across multiple platforms and multiple devices,” said Julian Bucknall, Chief Technology Officer at DevExpress. “DevExtreme tackles that challenge head on and helps developers build the modern, multi-channel, touch-enabled applications for Windows 8, iPad and iPhone and Android using their existing skills and resources.”
Empowering developers to begin building these modern applications today, the company also announced the EXTREME offer. Every customer with an active product subscription on the day of the next product release (version 12.2 on December 3rd, 2012) will receive all or part of the new DevExtreme toolset at no cost. Terms and Conditions of this offer are available online at www.devexpress.com
"We are at the beginning of an exciting, revolutionary shift in our industry," said Julian M Bucknall, CTO of DevExpress. "The EXTREME offer allows us to support our loyal customers by giving them a head start with the tools they need to create stunning, modern applications while leveraging their existing skillset."
With DevExtreme developers can create a single Visual Studio solution with one code base that crosses platforms and devices without the need for the iOS or Android SDK. With an integrated project, it’s easy to reuse content assets and application code across all target applications. Built-in Visual Studio support enables developers to preview their application while building it with visual designers for iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows 8 and the Web.
If developers want to run touch-based applications natively on all target devices, DevExtreme offers Apache Cordova (PhoneGap) support. They can even submit their applications to the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store. Best of all, developers can delight their users by creating apps in the platform they are most familiar with that feel as though they were designed expressly for the device.
DevExtreme will also have built-in social media functionality, including support for Facebook, which enables developers to focus on building applications without having to worry about authentication and user management. What’s more, getting data from the web means accessing information from various types of web services and APIs like OData. DevExtreme makes it easy to reach across the web and integrate information into all applications – just plug it in and go.
“With DevExtreme, multi-channel means building applications that span devices and optimize the best parts of each platform using your current skillset,” said Ray Navasarkian, CEO at DevExpress. “The reality is we live in a world where end users demand a unified digital experience across multiple devices and they expect to be delighted. With DevExtreme, developers can give them what they want and more.”
