    4. 4. Native Apps
    5. 5. Native Approach Challenges • Must know device specific development language skill set • Can’t port over to other devices • Costly • Have to go through app store or direct distribution • Potential for large device footprint • High maintenance Advantages • Leverage full device capabilities • Full offline device storage • Best performance • Richest UI • Must go through app store or direct distribution • Gaming capabilities • Plethora of app developers • No limits

    9. 9. Platform
    10. 10. Platform Apps
    11. 11. Platform Approach Challenges • Unsupported features • Restricted use of personal tools • Possibility of slow performance • Vendor lock / restrictions • May not be as UI rich • Not every feature is cross-channel Advantages • Ease of use • Re-usability of code • Easy availability of plugins • Fastest to market • Lower total cost of ownership • Support for cloud services • Single code base across all devices • Security / Authentication • May support other elements of SDLC • Build native, mobile web, hybrid and mixed mode apps • Future proofing
    12. 12. • Operating system developed by Samsung, Intel and Linux Foundation • Covers usage in Mobile Devices, Camera, SmartTv, In-vehicle Entertainment • Too much dependent on Android • BadaOS & Meego failure to compete with Google and Apple • Huge profit contributed by Samsung Well – know product to Google • Opportunities in IVI industry • Samsung’s own products are some of the largest selling products in the world What? Why?
    13. 13. Tizen Architecture (for Mobile) Applications Web Applications Web Framework W3C/HTML5 Device APIs Web Runtime Core Application Framework Graphics & Input Multimedia Web Messaging Location Security System Base Connectivity Telphony PIM Kernel Linux Kernel & device drivers
    14. 14. Benefits and challenges • Samsung brand already well known and also one of the biggest electronic manufacturers • Joint cooperation with Intel and Linux • Blue Ocean market for SmartTv, Camera, IVI • Samsung can apply Tizen to all its products • Support from NTT Docomo and Jaguar • Similar concept with Android • Late comers in Mobile OS Industry • Samsung products already closely related with Android, Threat of loosing trusts • Previous failure in Bada and Meego Project • Late entering the market for Mobile OS Strength Weakness Opportunity Threat
    15. 15. Mobile Backend Services (MBaaS)
    16. 16. The Developer View Extensive time spent on back-end development Enterprise-grade back- end services No scalability Elastic scaling Silo development Open Standards Vendor lock-in Freedom & Flexibility
    17. 17. Mobile Backend-As-A-Service (MBaaS) Enterprise-Grade Cloud Services Create rich app experiences without having to worry about back- end functionality Identity Integration Orchestration Messaging Sync Storage
