Raima Database Manager enables the mobile and remote work force to take better decisions by being able to integrate more data sources using Raima Database Manager locally.
Today’s mobile application developers demand data from multiple technology stacks and in real time to deliver a 360-degree view of the customer, product, employee, or business. For example, a mobile application might deliver a dashboard that tracks investments from multiple sources in real time. Raima offers, with RDM 14.0, new APIs supporting the mobile computing industry where our clients will be able to support integrated data for mobile apps and provide faster data access with RDM from the IOT device to the cloud.
Key features of RDM 14 for mobile devices include full multi-core support, multiple indexing methods, and pure and hybrid in-memory database operation. RDM 14 mobile efficiently allocates transaction processing to take advantage of multi-core systems in smart phones and tablets for optimal speed, boosting performance across the board and by over 50% – 200 % under certain read and write scenarios.
The database supports multiple indexing methods including B-tree and hash indices, configured to optimize application and performance requirements.
RDM 14.0 mobile can be configured to run on-disk, in-memory or a hybrid of the two, combining the speed of an in-memory database with the durability of on-disk in a single system.
Raima CEO Steinar Sande comments: “The power and flexibility of today’s smart phones and tablets makes them viable platforms for database applications with a sophistication not formerly considered possible. But taking full advantage requires a database solution that makes full use of these devices’ capabilities while recognizing their limitations. With RDM 14.0 for mobile devices, Raima has developed a high performance yet compact version of the powerful RDM application, specifically optimized for smart phones and tablets.
Magellan uses RDM Embedded within their MAPSEND GPS mapping software and all Magellan PC-based & Embedded Products. The Raima database generates and stores points of interest data and road names.
