In a cloud computing system, there's a significant workload shift. Local computers no longer have to do all the heavy lifting when it comes to running applications. The network of computers that make up the cloud handles them instead. Hardware and software demands on the user's side decrease. The only thing the user'scomputer needs to be able to run is the cloud computing system's interface software, which can be as simple as a Web browser, and the cloud's network takes care of the rest. There's a good chance you've already used some form of cloud computing. If you have an e-mail account with a Web-based e-mail service like Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail or Gmail, then you've had some experience with cloud computing. Instead of running an e-mail program on your computer, you log in to a Web e-mail account remotely. The software and storage for your account doesn't exist on your computer -- it's on the service's computer cloud. Our industry experience extends to providing solutions to information intensive businesses and includes service methodologies that have received the highest ratings in the industry. At GIS, we employ an integrated on-site/offshore methodology to rapidly deliver top quality, cost-effective IT integration solutions. By basing our development centers in India, we can tap into a large pool of highly skilled IT professionals with which to service clients on a cost basis significantly lower than that of the US or Europe. In addition, we can accelerate delivery time by offering a 24-hour per day, 7-day per week service, made possible by the time difference between North America and India. Over the years, we have perfected the processes, methodologies and infrastructure needed to overcome the challenges of operating with a project team that spans continents.
Android, iOS, BlackBerry, HP webOS, Symbian OS, and Windows Mobile support typical application binaries as found on personal computers with code whichexecutes in the native machine format of the processor (the ARM architecture is a dominant design used on many current models). Windows Mobile can also be compiled to x86 executables for debugging on a PC without a processor emulator, and also supports the Portable Executable (PE) format associated with the .NET Framework. Windows Mobile, HP webOS and iOS offer free SDKs and integrated development environments to developers. Machine language executables offer considerable performance advantages over Java.
