Kony Makes Write Once, Run Everywhere a Reality with next Generation Mobile Application Platform

Kony, a mobile applications platform provider with Write Once, Run Everywhere technology, today unveiled the Kony platform, the most open, flexible, scalable technology for developing and running native mobile applications. The platform offers an easy-to-use integrated development environment (IDE) that integrates with back-end systems, provides state-of-the-art mobile security, and generates mobile applications and clients for all mobile devices and operating systems, including Apple iPhone, RIM BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, Google Android and Palm.

Delivering on our vision of mobile faster, better, and at lower total cost of ownership, the Kony platform uses a single‐code base to develop rich native mobile applications, device‐optimized mobile websites, and extensible clients including SMS/MMS and gadgets. This patent-pending Write Once, Run Everywhere technology optimizes the functions and user experience of each device’s native capabilities to deliver a differentiated, hosted, and managed mobile solution. Kony’ comprehensive mobile offering, from identifying an enterprise’s mobile opportunities, through application development, to hosting the mobile services and ongoing support, removes the complexity and cost prohibited nature of mobile programs. “Driven by specialized mobility requirements of Fortune 500 companies, Kony has delivered a unique technology to address the challenges of building mobile products for all types of devices and executing multi-channel strategies,” said Raj Koneru, founder and CEO of Kony. “Our mobile application platform enables the application to be designed and developed, just once, in a device independent manner and then delivered across all of device operating systems, enabling enterprises to accelerate deployments, reduce overall costs, and increase profits and productivity.”

Key Benefits
