Built for Accelerating Mobile App Development

TethrOn’s Device Component performs the heavy lifting related to synchronization, conflict resolution and event dispatching. These functions form the higher performance of native components, (3-5X from our testing).

The remaining 20% of app building is the mechanics of presenting the user interface. Not the complex code related to how the sync works or orchestrating across multiple enterprise systems.

TethrOn’s quick start apps accelerates development even more.

Consistency and Abstraction

TethrOn’s Device Component provides an API for mobile app development that is consistent for online or offline, any backend system and platform. The same API is used for iOS, Android and Cordova plug-in, with only the small semantic differences between platforms.

This way app builders don’t have to worry about where the data comes from, or what data goes to each user. Instead they can use their time crafting and polishing a great UI/UX.

TethrOn Device Component

Granular Change and
Conflict Detection

The TethrOn Mobile SDK uses field-level synchronization for all data changes and conflict detection, transmitting only relevant data to the server.

Alternate approaches of using record “revision number” or “last updated” comparisons results in a number of false conflicts. Any update to any of 100’s of enterprise backend fields block updates to unrelated changes by mobile users.

Highly Secure Data Encryption, 
Wherever Your Data Goes

TethrOn supports multiple options for encrypting both on-device and transmitted data. All on-device data is stored in a SQLite database and encrypted using SQL Cipher transparent 256-bit AES encryption. All transmitted data can be sent over HTTPS with the option to use a corporate VPN.

Efficient Bi-directional Sync

The TethrOn Mobile SDK uses field-level synchronization for all data changes and conflict detection, transmitting only relevant data to the server.

A robust set of packaged events is included, along with working implementations in TethrOn’s quick start apps. This provides full sync flexibility.

Built-In Usage Logging

The TethrOn Device Component provides built-in support for capturing app usage and user action statistics. This data can then be analyzed for app engagement and adoption optimization.

TethrOn Server

Enterprise-Grade Synchronization

TethrOn’s intelligent sync engine helps ensure an optimal user experience by minimizing sync times, supporting thousands of records per second (bi-directional incremental sync) and up to 350,000 records per minute.

The sync process executes as efficiently as possible, transmitting only the differential changes needed for each device, with no duplication of data across users.

The TethrOn device component has taken care of optimizing complicated sync processing and special cases, including field-level conflict detection, broken sync  and sketchy connectivity.

TethrOn’s intelligent sync engine enables the delivery of enterprise-grade apps that work anywhere, anytime, and frees app builders to focus on delivering a great UI/UX.

We’ve Solved Sketchy Connectivity,
Ensuring Data Integrity

Most offline solutions are plagued by data divergence over a period of time due to inadequate protection against sketchy or dropped connectivity during sync. Often the only solution is for the user to completely refresh the local data.

TethrOn has built-in protections and recovery from sketchy or dropped connectivity and has a model of periodic reconciliation of data, ensuring that your users do not experience data divergence.

Dashboards and Alerting

The administration console includes a dashboard and monitoring tools to help administrators understand how the system is running and how employees use it.

Administrators can quickly monitor synchronization frequency, history and data volumes, as well as what employees are doing on their mobile devices.

The console displays proactive alerts triggered from critical events that require attention. You can also receive alerts via email.

Mobile Data Management 
by Subscription

TethrOn allows administrators to precisely tailor the amount of information that is distributed to each user’s device – all in business-friendly terms that map to your enterprise data model.

The subscription model and rules are declared through the web-based admin console. This method enables fine-grained control for distributing relevant data to devices based on the information users need to do their jobs anywhere, anytime.

Proactive Pull and Push Change Monitoring

TethrOn’s Mobile Cache Server supports huge data volumes and manages offline device data without programming.  It monitors the enterprise systems (pull, push, or both) and maintains a mobile data cache of all changes needed, for all users at any time

  • Pull – The TethrOn server queries systems for relevant information on a configurable scheduled  interval, pulling the information forward into its data cache.
  • Push – The TethrOn server listens for and receives pushes, or streams of information from systems as changes are made.

Conflict Resolution Resolved

TethrOn provides built-in support to minimize conflicts wherever possible through field-level synchronization for conflict detection and handling. If a conflict is detected, users are empowered to resolve them on their own, with administration intervention.

Mobile-optimized Data Cache Delivers an
Optimal Offline Experience

For an optimal always on, always fast user experience, user syncs are served out of TethrOn’s mobile-optimized data cache. This pattern of managing synchronization on the server has several benefits:

  • Synchronization is significantly faster than alternative methods. For example, syncing directly between devices and backend systems.
  • The server can proactively decide what data should be removed from devices.
  • The heavy lifting where processing power and connectivity is the best.
  • Load spikes during high sync load periods such as territory re-alignments or Monday morning are avoided.

TethrOn’s server data cache ensures all enterprise data that is to be mobilized is kept current with systems of record, as well as securely stored and transmitted to devices.

Versioned Configuration Management for
the Complete Digital Lifecycle

The TethrOn Server manages configurations through a versioning and release mechanism, keeping work-in-progress changes distinct from what is currently effective.

Active configurations can be exported from a source environment and imported into another, all through the web-based admin console without requiring compiles, server restarts or system downtime.
