ARMONK, N.Y. - 21 Feb 2013: IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced that Daegu Health College, a health training college located in Daegu, South Korea, is using IBM MobileFirst solutions to design and deploy mobile apps to meet the growing mobile demands of its students. Now, students benefit from quick, reliable and secure access to a range of academic resources that improve the campus community experience.

Research shows that there will be 48 million smartphones in use in South Korea by 2015.1 Considering that the nation's population just surpassed 50 million in 2012², South Korea is now recognized as one of the most wired societies. Consequently, it is critical for organizations to offer mobile apps and services that better target users' preferences and communications expectations. Using IBM Worklight, part of the IBM MobileFirst Application and Data Platform as an underlying solution, and FAS, a system integrator and business partner of IBM, the college deployed "Smart DHC," a suite of mobile apps. Now, its 7,500 students can manage common academic inquiries from their mobile devices including verifying class registration, checking grades, viewing class schedules and searching library materials.

"In order to provide the same services across different platforms and devices, there are a lot of matters that must be considered," said Jae-Do Lee, head of the Academic Information Center, Daegu Health College. "By using IBM MobileFirst solutions, we have the ability to achieve integrated management for all of our mobile apps, enabling students to benefit from the apps regardless of device or platform."

Using IBM MobileFirst, the college shortened the application development lifecycle. Additionally, with a single development process for multiple devices, Daegu reduces the time and costs associated with developing for multiple operating systems. By improving time-to-market, Daegu can quickly deliver valuable services to students and staff, improving student and employee satisfaction.

"IBM recognizes that mobile is a global opportunity and we are committed to putting the right tools in the hands of our clients and partners to capitalize on it," said Marie Wieck, general manager, application and integration middleware, IBM. "The IBM MobileFirst portfolio gives companies access to the software, consulting, services and partnerships they need to successfully execute on their mobile strategies and better meet the needs of their customers."
