The answer? A bi-modal strategy: maintain your core business investments, while simultaneously innovating and differentiating your company with new technologies. This is where OpenFin and Infragistics come into play.
With information being shared over the OpenFin InterApp Bus, Infragistics components really excel. The secure model — a local pub/sub between parent and child windows using just a few lines of code — works both for new web and mobile technologies, as well as with desktop applications.
This bi-modal solution allows for app communication in three key scenarios:
• Scenario 1: HTML app talking to HTML children windows through a secure bus between the windows
• Scenario 3: SignalR talking with the OpenFin bus so you can have desktop, web, and mobile apps across Xamarin
For more information about building responsive web applications that work with the OpenFin operating layer, read Infragistics’ blog, then watch this deep-dive video showing the details of how this demo works.
