Realm Launches Realm Mobile Platform Professional Edition to Drive Collaborative Realtime Applications


Realm, the mobile database powering the world’s most responsive applications, today announced the Realm Mobile Platform Professional Edition, a new solution built on the company’s core technology, that empowers mobile application developers to build highly engaging, realtime apps. Available immediately, the Realm Mobile Platform Professional Edition includes key features for mobile development teams such as realtime data synchronization, event handling, and business-level support SLAs (response within one business day), plus critical patches and upgrades. With the release of the solution, Realm is providing professional development teams at small- and mid-sized companies with a breakthrough new approach for building responsive and high quality applications that were previously only possible for companies with large development teams and huge budgets.

In conjunction with the launch of Realm Mobile Platform Professional Edition, Realm also announced the availability of Realm Scanner, a new open source mobile demo application built together with the IBM Cloud and Mobile team. Realm Scanner integrates the power of Realm with the IBM Watson Visual Recognition API on Bluemix to allow users to send a photo of anything for quick analysis and identification. The user then gets realtime results thanks to Realm Mobile Platform Professional Edition’s two-way instant synchronization and event handling technology. The app demonstrates capabilities applicable for a variety of applications, including location identification for VR applications, face recognition for security, categorizing images for industrial and scientific applications, reading labels in retail applications, and much more. The demo application and all of its code is available on GitHub as a free open-source project for developers to use, starting today.

The Realm Mobile Platform Professional Edition is available today for purchase and as a 60-day free trial. Pricing starts at $1500 per month. The Scanner demo app is available as a free open-source project on Github.
