HTML5 Future-Proofs Applications and Builds Bridges to Technology Islands
DN2K (http://www.dn2k.com), developers of advanced machine-to-machine (M2M) remote monitoring and management systems, today announced the use of HTML5 as one of it’s core technologies in its business and industrial application platform.
Developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and the Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group (WHATWG), HTML5 is a core technology of the Internet. Microsoft has announced that Windows 8.0 will be based on HTML5 and many developers such as Apple, Google and Pandora Internet Radio have also announced their commitment to the technology. In addition to supporting major mobile devices such as Android, iPhone and iPad, HTML5 offers superior graphics, video and audio performance while enabling cross-platform portability.
“There’s a storm of new advanced applications and systems that are using HTML5 as the core technology,” said Vince Cook, retired IBM Corporate Officer and industry consultant.
“By using HTML5, DN2K’s solution offers cross-platform flexibility for business and industrial applications. Previously, these applications required companies to rewrite a significant portion of their software to run on new systems.”
DN2K’s solution can securely extend the functionality, user interface and controls of business applications to secure mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. This opens up large opportunities in new markets for application developers, without the need to rewrite application code. For instance, Gartner projects that the number of tablets shipped worldwide will be over 100 million by the end of 2012, and will increase to 394 million tablets by the end of 2015.
“DN2K has committed to HTML5 for one of our key technologies and we are expanding our development team with HTML5 experts,” said Susan Lambert, President and COO of DN2K.
“Our solution will offer any business or industrial application provider a way to future-proof their native applications by enabling functionality on virtually any device, including the new wave of smartphones and tablets.”
