Advantages of RAMP
RAMP significantly reduces the skill set and team size required for secure mobile application development. Development time is reduced to a few months
with the required skill-set and team size reduced from several teams
with specialist skills to a couple of developers or web designers.
Updates or maintenance of the mobile application is limited to one development
area, instead of several platform specific development areas.
Devices from Midp 1.0 onwards are supported on RAMP. A single
development effort runs on all supported devices and platforms without
the development team having to be concerned with specific device and
platform issues. RAMP manages the mobile device fragmentation and addresses all issues.
As new mobile devices and platforms are released the RAMP platform will be
updated to accommodate the devices.
All security algorithms supported on the RAMP platform is NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) validated.
The RAMP mobile enterprise application platform allows for a stateful client. This enables the platform to
ensure transaction reliability in an unstable network environment.
Should connectivity be lost during a transaction the RAMP platform will
be able to inform the user whether the transaction was completed or not.
RAMP application size
RAMP has a fixed JAR size of 63 kB for MIDP 1.0 and 113 kB for MIDP 2.0
devices.This ensures compatibility on a very large mobile device base in both
emerging and developed economies.
Changes made to mobile applications on the RAMP platform will automatically
reflect when users login to their applications. On login RAMP checks if
any updates or changes have been made, if it detects a change the new
version is automatically downloaded without the client having to
re-download the application.
The required changes only have to be made in one location on the RAMP
platform for it to reflect on all mobile devices and platforms.
