Artificial Life has worked for several years on the development and distribution of cutting-edge mobile games and applications for many mobile operating systems and platforms, having developed a vast catalogue of proprietary tools, technology, and mobile products. OPUS-M is a culmination of Artificial Life's experience, expertise, and insight regarding customers' needs for an m-commerce platform that will drive sales and facilitate mobile integration.

OPUS-M's architecture enforces a modular and very flexible format made up of client selectable components catered to the specific needs of each customer, whether that be increased security, massive transaction support, fancy mobile features or enhanced application browsing. OPUS-M's components are separated into the 3 layers outlined below: the Core, the Service Layer, and the Application Layer.
