The RAD Multi-Device Application Platform
Mobile app development today often extends far beyond the device with the need to support real time communication and access to enterprise data and cloud services. RAD Studio's Multi-Device Application Platform makes it possible for developers to deliver truly connected mobile computing from the device through to back-end services on multiple client OS's and device form factors.
Rapidly connect your apps to your enterprise databases and services on-premises or in the cloud with FireDAC enterprise database connectivity, DataSnap n-tier middleware, and access to cloud-based RESTful web services through MBaaS providers.
High performance access to all your data sources
RAD Studio's FireDAC and dbExpress™ data access in Delphi and C++Builder enables your application to seamlessly connect to a wide variety of data sources while retaining vendor-specific database features and native performance. You get native high speed connectivity for Microsoft SQL Server, InterBase, DB2, Oracle, Sybase, MySQL, Firebird, SQLite, PostgreSQL and additional connectivity via ODBC. HTML5 Builder provides database connectivity to InterBase and other databases via PHP database connectivity standards. Learn more about FireDAC >
Build data and app services that everyone can use
Use Amazon and Azure Cloud services
RAD Studio's RAD Cloud components make it easy to use cloud services from Amazon and Microsoft Azure. Delphi and C++Builder support cloud data storage and access of blobs, queues of messages and tables on Windows Azure as well as Amazon Simple Queue Services, Amazon Simple DB, and Amazon Simple Storage Service.
Move your data and services to the Cloud
RAD Studio's RAD Cloud deployment enables you to easily deploy your VCL or FireMonkey data and application services to either Amazon EC2 or Microsoft Windows Azure. Once your services are deployed to the cloud they are accessible from virtually any platform or device from anywhere in the world.
