Appeon Web: Appeon Web, also known as Appeon for PowerBuilder, automatically converts SAP PowerBuilder business applications into Web applications. A typical Web conversion takes just a few months or even weeks instead of years. The original User Interface (UI) and behavior is faithfully preserved, avoiding retraining and possible user rejection. Currently there is no faster, scalable approach to Web-enable SAP PowerBuilder business applications.
Appeon Mobile: Appeon Mobile is the best way to build native mobile apps that are cross-OS (iOS and Android).? It enables SAP PowerBuilder developers to rapidly and easily develop mobile applications that are powered by native mobile technology (C++), and deliver high-performance and feature-rich applications to end-users. Currently, there is no product on the market that delivers as high productivity, rich user experience, MDI multitasking, ease of reusing existing PowerBuilder code, and ability to natively deploy across all leading mobile OS.
