ME utilizes the mobile web browser as the client delivery platform thus making it, by nature, cross-platform. Because they live 100% in the application tier, your mobile applications have access to all the same enterprise resources as your custom web parts
or other LOB applications. Mobile applications built upon the ME framework are developed in Visual Studio as SharePoint Features. They can even be included in the same Visual Studio projects as your custom web parts or workflows. By taking advantage of the
tools that SharePoint developers are already familiar with, the learning curve for developing on the ME platform is very short. There is an emphasis on best practices for custom development for SharePoint. Mobile Entrée as a product fits in by being installed
and managed centrally as a SharePoint Solution. Mobile applications built upon the ME framework are also installed and centrally managed as SharePoint Solutions and Features.
