Longjump yesterday launched two new services, Javelin and Relay, to bolster its cloud platform. Relay will provide a social interface to business apps and Javelin will turn these apps into standalone mobile apps without coding.
Longjump is the first platform-as-a-service provider to offer a social and mobile integrated platform, enabling business to take advantage of cloud, social networking, and mobile technologies. "With Longjump, users can follow business data like they are following a friend on Facebook," explains Pankaj Malviya, founder and CEO of Longjump. "It's a social interface for business data exposing back office data to the front office and making it interactive."

- Native mobile experience: Customers will have access to database records over an optimized interface for smartphone and tablet touch screens.
