Push continues to help app developers push past boundaries at Apps World 2015

Apps World Europe – London, UK and San Jose, Calif. – November 18, 2015 – Push Technology today announces Diffusion 5.6, the newest version of its Real-Time Messaging solution designed to enable innovation in today’s app economy.

This latest version of Diffusion has been enhanced to fully support all Apple (iOS & OSX) and Android devices via new developer SDKs. Along with improved client support, the software now offers new functionality such as the introduction of the Push Notifications Bridge – a simple mechanism to allow updates to be pushed to the end user, even when the client application is not currently running or connected. This latest feature development further improves the data efficiency and app experience that Push Internet Messaging has become known for.

Another area of improvement is Diffusion’s ability to scale across multiple nodes, and easily replicate data to each server. This “automatic fan-out” replication mechanism greatly simplifies deployment, by providing a robust out-of-the-box mechanism to distribute topic information to one or more secondary servers as capacity requirements grow.

Other features include, subscription control and enhancements to topic subscription processing – further reducing the memory footprint. Dr. Andy Piper, Chief Technology Office at Push Technology, said: “Diffusion 5.6 builds out the architectural vision that we embarked upon with 5.5 to bring significantly improved efficiency at lower cost. It serves to enhance app development and improve customer experience even further.”

Piper continued, “These new and improved capabilities ensure data is only distributed to end users based on the permissions they have within an organization, much like Diffusion 5.5, but at a more advanced scale. The reality is that many of us are stuck with ‘problem apps’ that deliver poor customer experiences. What’s needed is a way to exchange data efficiently and intelligently at scale across a variety of digitally connected devices. We want to arm organizations with the capabilities to deliver ‘dream apps’, and Diffusion 5.6 provides just that.”
