DataArt Develops Cutting-Edge Mobile Search & Push Technology for Wagumo Ltd.
March 9, 2010 – LONDON & NEW YORK- DataArt, a high-end software development company with headquarters in New York and R&D centers in Eastern Europe today announced the release of a new range of Wagumo mobile software products for London-based Wagumo Limited.
Wagumo is designed to revolutionize the way people retrieve and receive information by searching online and corporate content repositories, organizing results into meaningful groups and themes and presenting them in a dynamic and visually stunning interface on a PC or a smart phone.
DataArt has been responsible for engineering the technology for optimizing performance and building a server based infrastructure to support the mobile platform, specifically developing a mobile iPhone application to represent search results in a comprehensive and visually intuitive manner.
DataArt also developed technology for embedding Wagumo into a corporate Microsoft SharePoint server, so that when documents or data are modified, Wagumo alerts are instantly pushed to the user’s smart phone to view the change.
“We intensively researched the development community for best of breed resources to help produce our exciting range of technologies,” said David Morgan, CEO of Wagumo Ltd. “We were determined to work with people who shared our vision and excitement, who could demonstrate a breadth of innovative and first rate technical skills, and who had a track record of delivering high quality software on time. I have experienced many development teams over the years and I have been astounded by DataArt’s capabilities.” The difference between traditional search engines and Wagumo is intelligent clustering. While a search for “Apple iPad” on Google will return roughly 26.2 million results, Wagumo will present about 30 clusters of intelligent groups such as “Reviews”, “Launch” and “Accessories” which a user can select for viewing, open one of the corresponding Web sites and electronically link his own comments before e-mailing to a friend.
“Working with Wagumo allowed DataArt to perform on the cutting edge of mobile technologies,” said Dmitry Bagrov, Senior VP of European Business Development at DataArt. “It’s gratifying to work with a young company which has truly innovative products and a clear vision for their implementation.” The first commercial version of the software for iPhone will be available in a few weeks, with versions for other smart phones to follow. Corporate customers may obtain Wagumo through reseller channels.
