Altova MobileTogether Lets You Design Powerful Mobile Solutions in Record-Time and Deploy Them to All Device Platforms

Altova® (http://www.altova.com) today announced the upcoming release of Altova MobileTogether®, a unique cross-platform mobile solution that enables companies to easily put relevant data at the fingertips of their employees, wherever they are. Using MobileTogether, companies design custom enterprise mobile solutions that are accessible on any mobile device, with native support for Android, iOS, Windows Phone 8, and Windows 8 smartphones and tablets, as well as any other device via a browser-based client.

The proliferation of mobile devices has gone from prediction to reality. Never without their smartphones and tablets, today’s information workers are constantly connected to their touch screens – yet when it comes to true business productivity, these devices still only provide email and calendar connectivity, and not much else.

MobileTogether finally changes all of that. It brings control of mobile data in-house, where your team can create, test, and deploy mobile solutions quickly, moving from business requirement to live mobile solution within hours. Your organization retains full control of your data, user security, access control, and the entire development cycle.

“We are excited to introduce MobileTogether – a revolutionary platform for building mobile solutions for all devices in record-time. Instead of cumbersome and time-consuming native app development tools, MobileTogether unifies the development experience and provides a visual designer, a powerful simulator, and a stream-lined deployment process. MobileTogether works for companies of all sizes, across all verticals. Whether you need to create BI reports, enterprise forms, department-specific dashboards, or something else altogether, MobileTogether makes it easy,” said Alexander Falk, CEO of Altova. “In fact, we’ve been using MobileTogether in house for several months, and it’s already proved indispensable for providing new insights into important analytics and performance data. Best of all, creating and deploying a mobile solution in MobileTogether takes a matter of hours – rather than weeks or months.”

Altova, a long-time leader in the XML and data integration tools space, is known for providing easy-to-use development tools that are both powerful and affordable to its millions of global customers. A pioneer in the mobile space, Altova began developing solutions for mobile phones as early as 1999, and continued to add support for mobile standards in its XMLSpy IDE throughout the years.

It only follows that Altova continue its lead with cross-platform developer products tailored for today’s mobile development space, giving organizations all the tools they need to deploy cutting-edge mobile solutions in-house, on time, and under budget.

MobileTogether consists of three components:

  • The MobileTogether Designer is a sophisticated mobile development tool that lets your in-house development team connect to backend systems and use drag and drop functionality to create mobile solutions, including sophisticated BI dashboards, dynamic enterprise forms, business analysis reports, and more.
  • Mobile solutions are deployed to the high-performance MobileTogether Server, which handles security, workflow logic, and integration with database back-end systems.
  • Employees access your mobile solutions on the server via the native MobileTogether Mobile Apps, which will be available free of charge in the Android, iOS, Windows Phone 8, and Windows 8 app marketplaces. There is also an HTML5 browser-based client for any other device.

Unlike third-party app development services, MobileTogether is designed to be affordable for firms of all sizes. The MobileTogether Designer and MobileTogether Mobile App will be free – so teams can get to work immediately. When they’re ready to deploy custom mobile solutions more widely, the MobileTogether Server provides powerful data processing and affordable scalability.

Cross-platform support for any smartphone or tablet makes MobileTogether perfect for today's ubiquitous BYOD scenarios and provides for easy adaptation to changes. Companies can now capitalize on the benefits of BYOD, rather than being restricted by solutions that only work on one mobile operating system.

Availability:

Altova MobileTogether will be debuted at the Microsoft ® Tech Ed conference in Houston, Texas, this week, where attendees can view a live demo of the product on various mobile devices. Altova plans to make a public beta available to interested customers in the weeks following Tech Ed, with full commercial availability expected this fall.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
As more and more data is generated from a variety of connected devices, the need to get insights from this data and predict future behavior and trends is increasingly essential for businesses.

It features built-in integration with Azur...
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market. But the lack of a standard development platform threatens to slow growth and make application development more time consuming and costly, much like we’ve seen in the mobile space. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner, Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., discussed the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conducted a live demonstration of how quickly application development can happen when the need to comply wit...
