  • Combining existing capabilities as well as the newly acquired capabilities from Worklight, IBM can now provide our customers with a comprehensive solution for building enterprise mobile applications that connect to backend applications and information systems.Our comprehensive solution allows customers to develop mobile applications using several different programming models (native, hybrid, web). The hybrid and web programming models are inherently cross-platform, allowing the applications to run across the different device ecosystems (e.g. iOS, Android, Blackberry and Windows).Enterprise mobile applications are nearly always multi-tiered applications. Leveraging IBM’s deep expertise in enterprise systems, our mobile development solution and runtime components allow developed applications to optimally integrate with backend applications and information systems.Moreover, IBM Rational’s collaborative lifecycle management capabilities are integrated with the development tools. By governing the development process, customers can accelerate their mobile application development to fulfill fast time-to-market requirements that are typical of mobile applications, and rapidly release new updates to these applications to respond to user demand. Also, by aligning business and technical stakeholders within the lifecycle, customers can deliver applications with high quality user experience that meets business objectives. Key IBM Capabilities in this area:Develop mobile apps (native, hybrid, web)Traceability and collaboration across requirements, code and testingTest across multiple devicesPublish / Package for app storesMobile Software Dev Lifecycle (SDLC) toolsConnect mobile apps with optimized dataIntegrate with enterprise data and appsIntegrate with device capabilitiesPush notifications
  • With Rational: Rational Collaborative Lifecycle Management implements ALM best practices that accelerate mobile application development.By providing traceability across the entire project lifecycle from inception to delivery, customers can break down siloes between the different practitioner domains (e.g. requirement analysts, developers and testers). This improves collaboration, reduces errors that occur during hand-offs, reduces rework and improves the velocity of progress.With real-time planning that is consistently accurate and up-to-date, customers gain visibility and intelligence into the actual state of project health. This facilitates decision making and allows remedial actions to be identified and implement as soon as possible.These and other lifecycle capabilities such as in-context collaboration and continuous improvement are integrated with mobile development tools both from existing IBM capabilities and Worklight. Indeed, Worklight provides a “Ready for Rational”-certified integration before the acquisition. Customers can store their code on centralized code repositories and perform distributed builds targeting different mobile platforms remotely. In addition, the integration to IBM’s existing test management system can help manage test suites and test cases to ensure the quality of the development applications.

    1. 1. BRINGING COLLABORATIVE LIFECYCLE DEVELOPMENT TO MOBILE SOFTWARE Leigh Williamson, IBM Distinguished Engineer Miku Jha, Senior Solutions Architect Johannes zu Eltz. Global Offerings Executive, IBM Mobile Enterprise Service 1© 2012 IBM Corporation
    2. 2. Realizing “TOUCH” in MobileFeel’ the texture of an Apparel in a Retail Store - Shirt sizes - Availability - Colors - Cost - Frequency pattern [Frequency for the vibrator on the mobile Retail Store phone When customer wants to feel the Subscriber cloth material] - Texture of a fabric is assigned with a specific Frequency pattern - A frequency pattern is distinct for each of the fabric for e.g., Medium – Cotton, Slow – Wool etc - Customer selects a shirt from the menu displayed - Along with the shirt related information the vibrating frequency pattern is pushed to the client 2© 2012 IBM Corporation
    3. 3. Specific challenges in building a mobile application Imperatives from line of business & customers • Strong demand by Line of Business • Customers expect higher quality of user experience with mobile apps • More direct involvement from users/stakeholders in design Fragmentation of technology and platforms • Highly fragmented set of mobile devices and platforms • Native programming models not portable across devices. • Very large number of configurations of devices, platforms, carriers, etc. to test How do you develop for and test Urgent time-to-market, rapid pace of against multiple platforms innovation effectively? • Mobile landscape evolves at a much faster pace How do you align business and • More frequent releases and updates for apps with development? more urgent time-to-market demands • Lack of best practices guidance on how to deliver How do you gain control of your mobile applications development process and accelerate time to delivery? 3© 2012 IBM Corporation
    4. 4. Mobile Software Development is a Team Sport•Many disciplines are involved – stakeholders, variousdeveloper specialists, testing, documentation, projectmanagers• The most effective teams have clear visibility to whateach team member is expected to be working on, andhow each member is progressing with their part of theshared effort. •As work progresses, efficient communication is key – coordinating between team members allows the most effective execution. • The tools used in a team’s software development can facilitate such communication or they can create barriers between team roles. • Really effective agile teams use tools that are as integrated as the team members are. 4© 2012 IBM Corporation
