iTechArt has been always working hard to get certifications and establish partnerships that are vital for supporting our clients and helping them launch best-in-class products. The recent IBM MobileFirst Platform partnership is aligned to our strategy of iTechArt status enhancement as a leading mobile application development provider for enterprise-level businesses.
The IBM MobileFirst Platform is standards-based mobile middleware, categorized as a mobile enterprise application platform (MEAP) and a mobile application development platform (MADP). The components of the platform are designed to address the full application lifecycle — integrating advanced testing and quality management, end-to-end security, seamless data access and scalability, and contextual experience support—to produce a more engaging and effective user experience.
With the IBM MobileFirst Platform one can collect in-app usage and crash analytics; apply sentiment analysis to app store ratings and reviews; more easily manage app iterations and release cycles. As for security, you can analyze app code for vulnerabilities; protect enterprise data from exposure to mobile exploits using advanced user authentication, app authenticity, local data encryption, and app scanning. Besides, it offers developing proximity-aware mobile apps to create relevant, contextual mobile experiences that connect insights from digital engagement and physical presence. You can also access and manage mobile data through the IBM Cloudant module, which empowers organizations to store, sync, scale and connect to data in enterprise systems.
IBM MobileFirst Platform supports a wide range of development approaches, including native, hybrid and web approaches. Therefore, you can identify the best approach for each situation, according to skills, time and functionality, without being limited by a specific approach to mobile application development. Developers can use the tools of their choice: the provided command line interface (CLI) enables integration with tools such as Xcode, Android Studio, Xamarin, and more.
