" Oracle is uniquely positioned to bring new developments to its MADP solution first and best — an advantage that could be profound in the months and years to come."  - Rich Morrow, GigaOm Analyst

GigaOm analysts Rich Morrow recently covered cross platform mobile development, a hot topic given the effort it takes to develop enterprise apps that fulfill  the needs in a BYOD world, and Oracle is helping to fulfill the needs end-to-end needs for enterprise mobile development. 

Areas covered include:

▪ Write once, deploy to several native codebases

▪ Tight integrations to back-ends or middleware

▪ A focus on specific use cases

▪ Consistent “app identity.”

There’s an excellent DZone article titled: 2014 Guide to Mobile Development. It’s loaded with excellent information including some results from a mobile related survey to more than 1000 IT professionals. Without giving away too much, these highlights should convince you to read the entire article. 


Web and Hybrid apps are gaining tons of traction particularly in the enterprise. If you want to better understand the differences between Web, Native and Hybrid, this article has you covered.

Enterprise developers are increasingly more interested in cross platform tools. Makes sense right?  I mean, unless you have infinite resources (e.g. Facebook) and can afford to write native apps to every platform, finding something that can meet your needs for iOS and Android makes sense.  And toss in the possibility of Windows Phone …and oh, just to be current, the addition of Apple’s new mobile language, Swift, to add to Objective C.. and oh boy.  Why not check out cross platform tools? BTW, don’t  forget testing on each platform, and maintenance and the next versions of the app. It’s not one and done. If you’re successful, you’re never done.

Various mobile vendors are represented and many provide some great information.  Oracle's own Suhas Uliyar, VP of Mobile Strategy, represented with some great insights into the challenges of mobile back end integration (SOA, mBaaS, etc.) and moving from "mobile first" to a "mobile plus" world. BTW, Suhas was recently named Top 100 Wireless Technology Experts for 2014 by Today's Wireless World magazine. 

And if your not yet convinced, DZone did a very nice job with their mobile infographic stylized after the insanely popular series, Game of Thrones.  Even though there were no dragons illustrated, worth the price of admission just for that.
