Realm provides a set of tools and platform technologies designed to make it easy for developers to build apps with powerful features — things like realtime collaboration, augmented reality, live data synchronization, offline experiences, messaging, and more. The core of the Company's product line is the Realm Mobile Database. A true object database, it transforms how developers work: live objects update automatically, run code in response to changes, and persist easily. The database fully replaces the old-fashioned SQLite-based databases that are the alternatives for iOS and Android developers today. The Company's flagship product, the Realm Mobile Platform, extends that core with realtime data synchronization and event handling on the server side, all seamlessly connected to the apps. Developers use the platform to build apps with powerful functionality like messaging, collaboration, and offline-first capabilities. The platform is also ideal for mobilizing existing APIs, making it easy to build highly responsive and engaging apps connected to legacy systems and services.
