  • While the opportunities mobile presents are significant and mobile has become an enterprise requirement, there are a number of challenges clients face: First, at a business level, the basic models are changing in the way the business interacts and transacts with customers, employees and partners. Full business transactions need to be enabled with low latency request/response characteristics 24x7 from anywhere in the world at anytime. Knowledge of location can be important and utilized as part of the interaction. Social business interactions add opportunities and complexity to the space. Second, as we mentioned earlier the app development lifecycle is more complicated. In addition to being faster and more iterative, you have to deal with multiple device platforms and development styles. You have to securely integrate into back-end enterprise services and cloud and be ready to scale appropriately – even when demand occurs in less predictable patterns. On top of all that you have unique mobile requirements like a user interface that has significant restrictions in terms of real-estate. Third, you need to figure out how to protect your confidential information and the privacy of the participants – all while you are enabling connection through devices owned privately by the participants themselves and not controlled by the enterprise. You also have to figure out how to manage all the elements effectively from the device to the back-end platform. These are real challenges. Our recent Tech Report indicated the top three mobile adoption concerns: security/privacy, cost of development, integrating with cloud.
  • IBM Mobile Foundation delivers a range of app development and management capabilities that support a wide variety of mobile devices and mobile app types, while leveraging existing web technologies skills and investments. The IBM Mobile Foundation family of products includes: IBM Worklight:   to build, run and manage cross-platform mobile apps WebSphere CastIron: to connect mobile apps to a variety of Cloud and back-end systems IBM Endpoint Manager: to control and manage end-user mobile devices
  • The Worklight mobile platform consists of four main components: The Worklight Studio – the platform’s IDE The Worklight Server – a secure gateway between apps, back-end systems and cloud services Worklight’s Device Runtime Components – complementing the Server with client side functions The Worklight Console – a web-based administration interface.
  • The Worklight Studio is an Eclipse-based Integrated Development Environment (IDE) that allows developers to perform all the coding and integration tasks that are required to develop rich employee- and customer-facing applications. The Studio augments the familiar tools of Eclipse with a wide variety of enterprise-grade features that are delivered by the Worklight Plug-in, enabling it to streamline application development and facilitate enterprise connectivity. Worklight’s Java-based Server is a secure and scalable gateway between apps, external services, and the Enterprise. The Server facilitates secure connectivity, data manipulation, authentication, analytics and operational management functions. The Worklight Console is a web-based user interface dedicated for the ongoing administration of the Worklight Server and its deployed apps, adapters and push notification services. Worklight provides client-side run-time code that services HTML5, hybrid, or native application. Access back-end data and transactions : API for the invocation of Worklight services, retrieval of data and execution of transactions against back-end systems. Authentication and security : API and code for managing the authentication sequence and securing the application data and its link to the Worklight Server. Application Management : API and code for applying new application versions disabling applications according to policies defined in the Worklight Console. Troubleshooting : Code for detecting run-time connectivity problems in the app and collecting troubleshooting info about the app and the device Usage reporting for audit and analytics : API for collecting built-in and custom data from applications, to be recorded by the Worklight Server for audit and analytics purposes. Cross-platform compatibility APIs : Uniform API for device features and useful user interface tasks, hiding the differences across different environments. Application of skins: Allowing developers to adjust the look and feel of the app to the device's form factor in run-time, thus optimizing it for different versions of the same device family. The run-time client environment consists of the following components: JavaScript libraries : A set of JavaScript libraries implementing the JavaScript APIs. These libraries are available in all run-time environments (with the exception of native iPhone and Android apps which are written in Objective-C and Java respectively and do not require JavaScript libraries). Native libraries for hybrid apps : A set of native libraries (for iOS and Android) that provide access to device-specific features. Apps written in JavaScript do not access these libraries directly, but through the relevant JavaScript APIs. In some cases, native code runs the web code provided by the developer. Native libraries for native apps : A set of native libraries for iOS and Android that provide access to Worklight Server functionality for natively written applications. Native code templates : For iOS, Android, BlackBerry, and Windows Phone devices, native code templates encapsulating a browser that runs the web code provided by the developer.
