Rural Opportunities in India; MobiTop Launch
Topic: Rural Economic Opportunities in the Mobile Space by Sriram Raghavan, President, Comat Technologies.
“Several governmental and private initiatives in India in the last few years have aimed at creating economic frameworks in rural areas for businesses to operate in. This talk isn’t about mobile, per se — it’s about the creation and stabilisation of new markets, of why these weren’t viable before, of how economic growth and policy change is affording their viability, and of how they may be accessed. Mobile entrepreneurs may have an easier time than most, since they provide a critical foundational layer for better integration with the larger economy.”
Demo: MobiTop platform by Mobisy.
“MobiTop, is a mobile phone application development platform with which application developers, device manufacturers and operators can easily develop and deploy new breed of applications with Web 2.0 features. Key challenges faced by today’s mobile application developers are, “Device incompatibilities” and “Ineffective application delivery platforms”. We @ Mobisy are trying to address these major issues by providing a platform to develop applications quickly in standard web technologies like AJAX and limiting the porting issues only to browser, e.g. standard Web 2.0 applications. Further, we are enabling Internet based deployment of applications, which provides security at the same time avoiding complicated and lengthy, signing procedures. We also provide native device access capabilities(like Call,SMS, Contacts), offline mode and many other key features to watch out for.”
