REBOL IOS Enterprise Advantages
- Dynamic, ad-hoc groups
Anyone can create and run a group with ease. Creating or joining a group is as simple as installing a small desktop client (500K) and logging in. IOS restores user workspaces within minutes and ensures that they have the most current applications, files, and data. When a user goes offline, IOS continues to operate with the most recent workspaces. When a user reconnects, IOS maintains the workspaces by downloading changes. The IOS client includes all of the administration tools needed to create new groups, add new coworkers, and establish user privileges.
- Immediate access to data
Coworkers have the most current information - precisely when and where they need it. IOS dynamically replicates applications, data, communications, and icons on each user's computer enabling instant viewing and response to ad-hoc queries. Access to the most up-to-date information is guaranteed. Employees, partners, or coworkers always have the data and applications where they need them, when they need them - secure and noise free. More powerful than personalized Web pages, IOS enables services and data to be targeted at individuals, through shared workspaces or even by individual tasks.
- Client-side functionality and performance
The click-and-wait syndrome of Web-based applications is a relic of the past. IOS applications execute locally, providing instant response for greater user satisfaction. Application data is stored on the local computer as required, eliminating the need to go back to a server for every user action. Critical tasks are more efficient since they no longer require the sharing of a Web server with hundreds or thousands of other "dumb" clients. Local file sandboxes, encryption, and data compression are built into IOS to help manage and protect data.
- Built-in collaboration across platforms
Organizations can easily provide the cross-platform services they need to support today's collaborative workflow. IOS includes the commonly needed communication services integrated right into the base platform. This saves the effort and cost involved with integrating products from a variety of different 3rd parties. IOS applications operate identically across all major platforms including: Windows (NT, XP, 95, 98, 2000), Solaris, SGI IRIX, HP/UX, Linux, BSD Unix, Free BSD, Open BSD, and others. IOS applications written for one run on all.
- Efficient development, customization, delivery, and maintenance
To maintain a competitive edge, high-value IT solutions must be securely and efficiently created, delivered and upgraded across the extended enterprise. IOS enables the creation, customization, and delivery of highly-targeted IT solutions through a secure channel and across a wide variety of platforms, with significantly reduced expense and effort. Pre-built business application services can be mixed, matched, or customized as needed.
