XForms technology under the hood

The basis for XForms Cx is XForms, a mobile forms platform consisting of core APIs, a NoSQL cloud datastore, a mobile app framework, web app components, and a form template designer.

XForms Cx uses these building blocks as the foundation for the product, and further adds additional APIs and components to support device lists, device type hierarchies, automated % complete calculations, and separate mobile and web apps.

As the XForms core technology improves to support other verticals, the XForms Cx product benefits, providing an ever-improving product.
