As line of business managers begin to take over more of the responsibility for developing enterprise mobile strategies away from the overworked IT house, the pressure is on to simplify the process of developing, deploying and managing the applications that support those strategies.
In response, application development vendors are looking for ways to package and streamline what they bring to market.
Mobile application developer Kony has released a new Mobile Backend-as-a-Service (MBaaS) and a new set of “packaged” mobile applications. The company also made a series of enhancements to its Multi-Channel Experience Cloud application development, deployment and management portfolio. Kony is based in Orlando but also has an office in Toronto.
Kony’s senior vice-president of products, Burley Kawasaki, shared the news with IT World Canada, sister publication of Computer Dealer News, in a pre-release briefing.
Taking centre stage was the release of Kony MBaaS, which has been developed from the Kony Experience Platform. MBaaS consists of an open set of integrated, enterprise-grade cloud services that Kony says can reduce the cost and complexity of building enterprise mobile apps.
