Mobile app platform

Mobile app platform addresses the difficulties of developing mobile software by managing the diversity of devices, networks, and user groups at the time of deployment and throughout the mobile solution’s lifecycle. Unlike standalone apps, a Mobile app platform provides a comprehensive, long-term approach to deploying mobility. Cross-platform considerations are one big drive behind using Mobile app platform. For example, a company can use a Mobile app platform to develop the mobile application once and deploy it to a variety of different mobile devices (including smartphones, tablets, notebooks, and ruggedized handhelds) with no changes to the underlying business logic.

Mobile app platform solution is generally composed of two parts: a mobile middleware server and a mobile client application. A middleware server is the solution component that handles all system integration, security, communications, scalability, cross-platform support, etc. No data is stored in the middleware server – it as its job is to manage data from the back-end system to the mobile device and back. Most mobile app platforms also come with a mobile configuration/development toolset that allows companies to create and adjust mobile solutions.
