Aspirational Framework. MAIN POINT: A DevOps approach to delivery of mobile applications is crucial. DevOps and its set of principles and best practices enables mobile teams to rapidly deliver quality mobile applications that fully engage the end-user, integrate seamlessly with back-end systems of record, and interact with their environment and the systems of operation.This is an aspirational framework – not all teams will undertake all of these activities for each project. But it’s a way of thinking about continuous delivery of mobile apps, and applying the same discipline to this lifecycle as you do any business-critical process.Let’s look at the steps in this lifecycle:Design We start with designing the user experience, optimally using an outside-in approach. (Worklight)Develop We design the architecture and develop the application, using a cross-platform development approach that will maximize code reuse. (Worklight)Instrument We instrument the application for your application for analytics, security, and management control. (Tealeaf)Integrate –We integrate with back-end data, systems and cloud services. (Worklight, Cast Iron)Test –We test the application (Rational Test Workbench)Certify – We use a vulnerability analysis tool scan, evaluate, and certify your application (AppScan)Deploy -- We distribute the applications –using a combination of internal and external App Stores( to Worklight and back-end servers with UrbanCode Deploy; to managed devices with Endpoint Manager; Worklight’s integrated catalog for unmanaged devices, and external App Stores)Manage – Using the Worklight Application Console, we manage authentication, enforced updates, and versions.Obtain Insight – We analyze and improve the effectiveness of your application design by viewing detailed customer usage patterns (Tealeaf)And of course this understanding influences the next iteration of our product design, closing the iterative circle.
