InterSystems Zen Mojo Simplifies Development of Web-Based Enterprise Applications for Mobile and Desktop

InterSystems, a global provider of advanced technologies for breakthrough applications, today announced InterSystems Zen Mojo, a new technology for faster and easier development of Web-based applications for mobile and desktop environments. InterSystems Zen Mojo simplifies the development of data-rich, enterprise-class Web applications that leverage the innate functionality and highly responsive user interfaces of mobile devices. The open source plugin framework allows rapid adoption of new and rapidly evolving client libraries.

An evolution of InterSystems’ existing Zen technology, Zen Mojo is a lean, efficient framework leveraging JSON (JavaScript Object Notation), the current state-of-the-art format for Web client/server communication. The Zen Mojo technology is embedded in InterSystems Caché®, an extremely fast and massively scalable database, used worldwide in the most demanding Big Data applications.

“Zen Mojo enables us to more rapidly adapt our laboratory management solutions for mobile technologies,” said Marcelo Lorencin, President of Shift Consultoria, a Brazilian software company and an InterSystems partner. “Our solutions now provide medical teams with quick access to laboratory test results and electronic patient records from any device. Our strong partnership with InterSystems has helped us increase agility and efficiency for hospitals and healthcare facilities, while also fostering greater patient engagement. Patients can now view their own lab results and, with the right permissions, the results of family members from mobile devices.”

“We developed Zen Mojo in response to customer demand for a faster, more efficient way to create cross-platform Web-based applications for both desktop and mobile environments,” said Robert Nagle, Vice President, Data Platforms, for InterSystems. “Web application development is evolving very quickly, and the world has moved on from server-generated HTML. The open framework of Zen Mojo allows developers to easily integrate their UI library of choice.”

How It Works

Zen Mojo applications are Single-Page Applications (SPA), a popular and efficient approach that reduces back-and-forth communication with the server. Instead of generating HTML that is shipped from server to client, the server transmits metadata necessary for the client to render new content. This metadata drives the layout of the page and includes all the display data as well. The result is a fast, lean approach for developers, while giving users engaging UIs with full access to enterprise data from any device.

Zen Mojo uses a plugin interface for easy integration of state-of-the-art JavaScript user interface (UI) libraries, like jQuery Mobile or the Dojo Toolkit. This approach enables developers to select new client functionality for Zen Mojo as soon as it arises. The technology can also be easily used with frameworks such as PhoneGap for quickly building cross-platform mobile apps.

Zen Mojo is available immediately and can be used with 2013 and 2014 versions of InterSystems Caché. Additional information may be found at www.intersystems.com/our-products/embedded-technologies/zen/.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
