Dexterra., a leading innovator of mobile business software, today unveiled the latest version of their flagship product, Dexterra Concert 4.0, the first complete SOA-based distributed computing platform that provides an enterprise with everything they need to effectively mobilize their distributed workforce quickly, efficiently and economically.
With Dexterra Concert 4.0, any business can develop mobile applications, connect them to their existing back office systems and deploy to devices in the field in record time. An extensive library of out-of-the-box industry-specific Dexterra TransAppsTM is available, targeting precise business needs and speeding the process of developing and delivering mobile business solutions. Dexterra removes the complexity normally associated with a wireless solution by including the necessary security protocols and management capabilities to ensure safe and secure business transactions in the field.
Delivering on the promise of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), Dexterra Concert 4.0 allows rapid response and adaptation to business change without the high cost normally associated with such challenges. “In order for adaptive mobility to be successful, it is critical for organisations to deploy solutions rapidly, without disruptions and in a manner that delivers considerable value to both the mobile user community, line of business executives and to IT departments,” said Stephen Drake, program director for Mobile Software at IDC, a leading provider of global IT research and advice, in their August 2005 Vendor Spotlight.
“Dexterra has greatly advanced the mobile software landscape with their approach to SOA," said Sandy Carter, vice president IBM WebSphere Software. "Using Dexterra Concert 4.0 with IBM WebSphere software and the new IBM SOA Foundation customers can further extend the business benefits of Service Oriented Architectures to the distributed workforce.”
Dexterra Concert 4.0 captures the true essence of adaptive mobility with two dynamic development and management tools, Dexterra Composer and Dexterra Orchestrator.
Dexterra Composer is the latest revolution in Dexterra application development tools extending such popular integrated development environments as Microsoft Visual Studio and Eclipse. With Dexterra Composer, developers can assemble applications in hours rather than days, utilising an extensive suite of pre-existing TransApps, modules, components and controls optimised for specific devices and form-factors. These reusable components are the result of the gathering of best practices across a wide variety of industries, all brought together in one cohesive, manageable toolset. Dexterra will continue to release additional controls, components and TransApps for Dexterra Composer to expand its capabilities across industries and devices.
Dexterra Orchestrator provides integrators with the ability to access, map and manage a family of vendor-certified Dexterra Adapters; easy to use out-of-the-box integration components for use with a number of enterprise systems, middleware and databases including SAP, Oracle, Microsoft, and Remedy. Dexterra Orchestrator, combined with any Dexterra Adapter, allows the fast and easy auto-discovery and mapping of changes in these backend systems to applications developed in Dexterra Composer. Together they form the most responsive, secure and complete method of developing and managing a wireless business solution available on the market.
“With a SOA-oriented wireless solution, Dexterra gives us the ability to provide our global clients the most powerful and effective solution available for the mobile workforce right out-of-the-box,” stated Andy Mulholland, global chief technology officer for Capgemini. “With that, Dexterra Concert 4.0 also delivers the ability to be flexible, and in this market, to meet varying customer demand, the more flexible you are, the more successful you will be.”
“Working closely with our customers and partners, the Dexterra product team has truly delivered a new paradigm in mobile business solution delivery,” says Rob Loughan, CEO of Dexterra, “one that allows them to develop and reuse applications and components in a faster, more predictable manner. With the unprecedented power in Dexterra Concert to assemble an application rather than to write code, coupled with the ability to easily adapt rather than to integrate to a host of popular ERP and CRM systems, Dexterra continues to raise the bar by taking the high cost and risk out of deploying wireless business solutions.”
