InterSystems Zen Mojo Simplifies Development of Web-Based Enterprise Applications for Mobile and Desktop
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. --(Business Wire)--
a global provider of advanced technologies for breakthrough
applications, today announced InterSystems Zen Mojo, a new technology
for faster and easier development of Web-based applications for mobile
and desktop environments. InterSystems Zen Mojo simplifies the
development of data-rich, enterprise-class Web applications that
leverage the innate functionality and highly responsive user interfaces
of mobile devices. The open source plugin framework allows rapid
adoption of new and rapidly evolving client libraries.
An evolution of InterSystems' existing Zen technology, Zen�Mojo is a
the current state-of-the-art format for Web client/server communication.
The Zen Mojo technology is embedded in InterSystems
Cach�®, an extremely fast and massively scalable
database, used worldwide in the most demanding Big Data applications.
"Zen Mojo enables us to more rapidly adapt our laboratory management
solutions for mobile technologies," said Marcelo Lorencin, President of
Shift Consultoria, a Brazilian software company and an InterSystems
partner. "Our solutions now provide medical teams with quick access to
laboratory test results and electronic patient records from ay device.
Our strong partnership with InterSystems has helped us increase agility
and efficiency for hospitals and healthcare facilities, while also
fostering greater patient engagement. Patients can now view their own
lab results and, with the right permissions, the results of family
members from mobile devices."
"We developed Zen Mojo in response to customer demand for a faster, more
efficient way to create cross-platform Web-based applications for both
desktop and mobile environments," said Robert Nagle, Vice President,
Data Platforms, for InterSystems. "Web application development is
evolving very quickly, and the world has moved on from server-generated
HTML. The open framework of Zen Mojo allows developers to easily
integrate their UI library of choice."
How It Works
Zen Mojo applications are Single-Page Applications (SPA), a popular and
efficient approach that reduces back-and-forth communication with the
server. Instead of generating HTML that is shipped from server to
client, the server transmits metadata necessary for the client to render
new content. This metadata drives the layout of the page and includes
all the display data as well. The result is a fast, lean approach for
developers, while giving users engaging UIs with full access to
enterprise data from any device.
Zen Mojo uses a plugin interface for easy integration of
Mobile or the Dojo Toolkit. This approach enables developers to select
new client functionality for Zen Mojo as soon as it arises. The
technology can also be easily used with frameworks such as PhoneGap for
quickly building cross-platform mobile apps.
Zen Mojo is available immediately and can be used with 2013 and 2014
versions of InterSystems Cach�. Additional information may be found at www.intersystems.com/our-products/embedded-technologies/zen/.
