Building a "Unified Mobile App" Using Mobile Cloud Service

Oracle Partner RapidValue Solutions just released a whitepaper that discusses how to create a “unified mobile app,” integrating Oracle E-Business Suite, Taleo, Salesforce, Microsoft Outlook, and Kofax applications into one mobile solution.  In this sample integration, RapidValue used Oracle Mobile Application Framework (MAF) and Oracle Mobile Cloud Service (MCS) to build, connect, and deploy a unified mobile app for Oracle customer Brocade.

Brocade, a data storage and networking products company, was running a customized version of Oracle's E-Business Suite, making it difficult and untimely to run out-of-the-box EBS apps, and the company needed an integrated solution for its sales force, who relied on both Oracle and non-Oracle applications to perform in both the office and in the field.

RapidValue built this "unified mobile app" using MAF, and then used MCS to both integrate the app with Brocade's backend systems, including non-Oracle applications, and to support the app with MCS' Mobile Backend as a Service (MBaaS) features. Some of these features included creating custom REST APIs for webservice orchestration within MCS, using engagement features like push notifications to reach employees more effectively, and authenticating users through MCS' SSO feature.

In the whitepaper, RapidValue states that it can implement a unified app like that within six to eight weeks, as opposed to the estimated 22-24 weeks it would take if the work was completed using a native approach!  Once Brocade's solution was up and running, the company saw expense approval time cut dramatically, and transaction cycle time was reduced considerably.  Using an app like this not only helps to improve company productivity, but it also can be rolled out very quickly, saving companies valuable resources and development time.
