Tools to ease mobile app development woes
Sponsored by IBM
This chapter is included in the Intro to enterprise mobile app development E-Book.
Building mobile apps is hard, but modern mobile app development platforms, mobile backend as a service (MBaaS) offerings and other products can make it easier. Companies must first decide what kind of applications they will build and which operating systems those applications will run on. From there, it should be easy to find an application development product that meets the needs of businesses and developers.
There's no shortage of tools available for simplifying application development. The right integrated development environment (IDE) or mobile application development framework (MADF) can be instrumental in improving efficiency and reducing developers' and administrators' efforts. And the right mobile application development platforms (MADP), MBaaS or refactoring product can help free up devs and admins so they can focus their attention on projects that take priority.
