Developing Mobile Apps for iOS and Android | @CloudExpo #API #Cloud #Mobility

The issues and challenges involved with the developing of mobile apps

Developing mobile apps has never been an easy task. Creating a mobile app for iOS means owning strong programming skills about Objective-C or Swift and knowing their APIs. Android-based apps are not so different: you have to know Java and the Android Platform and its API.

The learning curve is not fast and it includes how to create nice and interactive user interfaces, connecting embedded features like GPS, camera, showing maps, images and so forth.

To make it more complex, it is pretty common to connect the app with a server where central data is saved or fetched and where other services must be connected, like a central database, documents repository or other information systems.

Consequently, creating a mobile app requires a team of experts able to work with a variety of different technologies, including mobile app development, networking, server-side technologies, data integration tools.

An alternative solution to the availability of all these skills in-house or through a third party, is choosing a unique tool which can fit all these requirements and reduce the complexity involved with the mobile development.

Such a tool should replace the programming in a computer language with something more visual. To decrease the technical skills, the development should follow a model driven approach, where the focus starts from a human-elaborated model which represents an abstract representation of the domain and through a forward engineering process, produce the application, in terms of user interface, events management, business logic, data storage.

There are several low code programming tools available, but a few can cover efficiently all the issues reported above, like the synchronization of data and documents with a central repository.

4WS.Platform is a low code development tool, used to quickly create multi-channel applications, including web and mobile applications, for iOS and Android mobile platforms.

These mobile apps are native apps, the only way to ensure the maximum efficiency in terms of performance and the best integration with the local components of mobile device.

The key feature of this platform is the creation of applications without the need for coding them with traditional tools, such as an IDE or other advanced editors. Apps can be configured graphically, using the App Designer: a web application where the focus is on the  application configuration instead of writing code.

No iOS or Android programmers are required if you have to create mobile apps, since these applications can be configured without any specific knowledge of these areas.

The main benefits of this solution is the reduced time-to-market and reduced costs involved with the creation of applications, since they can be realized without programmers, without technical knowledge, and without a need to be maintained.

4WS.Platform is released as software-as-a-service, on the Google Cloud Infrastructure, it is easy to maintain, install and includes all the features you need, in terms of security, base software and hardware infrastructure and reliability.

Creating a list of products with an image preview or a list of customers and its detail with a google map are features which can be realized in minutes, even by people who do not have any technical skill.

Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises are using some form of XaaS - software, platform, and infrastructure as a service.

With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing Cloud strategies, now is the perfect time to attend and learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is on the right path to Digital Transformation.

Every Global 2000 enterprise in the world is now integrating cloud computing in some form into its IT development and operations. Midsize and small businesses are also migrating to the cloud in increasing numbers.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
