RESTON, Va., Dec. 20, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ScientiaMobile added a new product to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace making it the first product on the marketplace to offer device detection. ScientiaMobile’s WURFL Microservice enables companies and public sector organizations to improve their web optimization, advertising, and analytics. WURFL Microservice delivers highly accurate device intelligence to enterprises embracing a microservice architecture. Not only is WURFL the most accurate solution in the industry (more than 99 percent accurate) with weekly updates, but it also has the most complete library with over 54,000 devices. WURFL delivers fast performance that effectively scales on multi-core EC2 processor servers.

“Many large organizations are looking to or adopting a microservice architecture. Embracing the new paradigm was the obvious route to follow for ScientiaMobile, so we followed it,” said Luca Passani, chief technology officer, ScientiaMobile. Adding, “WURFL Microservice provides a quickly-deployable device detection subsystem that allows other components in a microservice architecture to obtain device properties. While WURFL Microservice uses REST under the hood, customers will use their favorite programming languages and enjoy performances on par with our traditional in-memory APIs. We believe this to be the best of both worlds.”

WURFL Microservice is available for purchase in Basic, Standard, and Professional plans developed to provide device intelligence to organizations interested in web optimization, advertising technology (AdTech), and device analytics. Basic is geared to for firms looking to improve their web optimization, Standard is suited for advertising use-cases, and Professional would be ideal for analytics utilization. WURFL Microservice has support for five different programming languages including GO (Golang), Java, .NET (C#), Node.js, and PHP.
