EarlySail JumpStart Program for RIM BlackBerry Application development is a packaged service to ISVs and System Integrators who need help getting started with their application development.

Although most mobile platforms provide IDEs to create basic applications, any real-life mobile application must account for

  • Vagaries of the wireless networks
  • Battery, CPU, Screen real-estate and Bandwidth constraints
  • Usability issues and seamless user experience using device specific native UIs, navigation techniques, persistence, and boot-up behavior .
  • Finally, the enterprise oriented developer must understand the difference in use of BlackBerry Enterprise Server/MDS vs. Carrier gateways as well as deployment and security models

EarlySail has developed a reference architecture and a software platform for development of robust and scalable enterprise applications on the BlackBerry. Products based on this architecture include instant messaging clients, RSS news readers, Urgent Messaging applications for Business Continuity and Time Tracking applications that are in use in over 50 large customers.

The JumpStart program offers consulting, architecture analysis, and prototype code as required. EarlySail also offers full life cycle product development for BlackBerry and other mobile platforms.
