As we simplify mobile development, this has led us to develop important new features with the new release of Oracle Mobile Cloud Service 2.0 such as Mobile Application Accelerator (MAX), a new location-based service, and security enhancements to our Mobile Backend as a Service platform.
Build Better Apps Faster with MAX
As innovation in mobile solutions grows at a healthy pace, traditional IT is finding it challenging to keep up with user demands for more apps. With MAX, our new Rapid Mobile App Development (RMAD) tool, “citizen developers” with no programming background can develop their own apps for iOS and Android platforms, without writing a single line of code. MAX lets employees connect with their data by building simple, elegant mobile apps independently, thus freeing up IT for more complex pursuits.
Increase Engagement with Location-Aware Apps
Marketers today increasingly use mobile apps to provide context-rich information, making apps more relevant and useful than ever before. To extend the value of those apps, Oracle Mobile Cloud Service is now adding location-awareness to the mix. Our declarative framework, complete with an intuitive admin UI, helps define places, devices (such as beacons), and assets, and boasts a Locations API to help query these entities and the relationship between them. Now mobile app developers can obtain location-based contextual information on places and assets, and target mobile app users using
Security Remains our Top Priority
Security has always been a first class citizen as far as Oracle Mobile Cloud Service is concerned. With our focus on user roles, policies, and credentials, we strive for an airtight yet worry-free development experience. To facilitate PaaS-SaaS integration projects, today we announce support for JWT token and OAuth policies for REST connectors to streamline building mobile apps to Sales and Field Cloud Services. In addition, now mobile users can log on to their apps with external identity providers such as Microsoft Azure Active Directory, joining our enormously popular Facebook social login feature.Check out this recent interview on LinkedIn, where invited Denis Tyrell and Liza Broadbent, the product manager and user experience leads respectively, talk about their new baby Oracle Mobile Application Accelerator (MAX), Oracle's mobile development product aimed not at developers, but what Gartner coins citizen developers.
