Mobile enterprise application platform (MEAP) is a broad spectrum suite of products and services with which mobile applications are developed. The term â€˜MEAPâ€™ is unveiled in a Gartner Magic Quadrant report in 2008 when they renamed their multi channel gateway market.
MEAP talks about the difficulties of developing mobile applications and propose solutions by management of mobile devices, networks and user groups throughout the mobile application lifecycle and at its deployment.
With the help of MEAP, any company could develop a mobile application once and deploy it to a wide variety of mobile devices that include smart phone, both android and iphone along with android tablets along with no changes in the business logic behind the app development. MEAP is a comprehensive and long term approach towards mobility of mobile phone applications. If you are considering cross platform application development, then MEAP is the wisest decision to go with.
MEAP is a mobile application platform that not only simplifies, but also speeds up the mobile application development process and that requires considerably less programming knowledge. It is also essential for companies who want to develop more than one mobile application on the same infrastructure with the resources that they have.
Any MEAP solution consists of two parts:
1) A middle ware server
2) Mobile application client
A middle ware server is a mobile application development component that handles system integration including security, scalability, communications and cross platform support. It also doesnâ€™t store any data in it, all it does is manage the data flow form back end server to the mobile device and repeat.
Features of MEAP:
â€¢ A separate set of codes is not required for supporting multiple types of mobile devices and operating systems.
â€¢ A mobile middle ware server is used for integration, connectivity and security of the mobile application.
â€¢ 4GL techniques are used which makes writing custom app extension very easy. No separate coding is required.
â€¢ In order to leverage service oriented architecture (SOA) services from backend, MEAP can integrate with multiple data servers at one time.
â€¢ Enhance existing business platforms by making them accessible to users anywhere, at any time.
