PROGRESS ANNOUNCES TELERIK PLATFORM FOR MOBILE APPLICATION
DEVELOPMENT IN THE ENTERPRISE
Single solution low code mobile application development platform
aligns developer/business user efforts; simplifies integration and
synchronization; and provides development and deployment flexibility
(NASDAQ: PRGS) today announced the latest release of Telerik
Platform, the cross-platform mobile application development solution
for creating mobile web, native and hybrid apps quickly and easily. With
the latest release, Telerik Platform includes key enterprise elements to
better enable low code development options for both the developer and
technical business user; enterprise mBaaS for simplified data
integrations and synchronization; and a native development framework to
provide complete development flexibility.
Enterprises now have an effective and easy-to-use solution (on-premise
or in the cloud) that leverages existing developer skills, coupled with
device-agnostic support, security, reliability, scalability and
flexibility. All of this comes from a trusted technology source backed
by a company with a 30-year history of customer and partner success.
“Enterprises need to adopt an enterprise-grade mobile platform that is
trusted by the development community, yet easy enough for the technical
business user to use,” said Karen Tegan Padir, President, Application
Development and Deployment, Progress. “Building on the decade-long
relationship Telerik has with its 1.7 million-strong developer
community, the developer-proven components of Telerik Platform are
already in use by more than 65,000 customers with 20,000+ apps deployed
Business User Participation in the Development Process
Many enterprises are exploring opportunities to mobilize their
businesses, but challenges abound. In addition to needing to mobilize
large numbers of business apps, quickly, organizations are looking to
deliver apps with attractive UI and which are flexible,
versatile, easy-to-use and integrated with the back end with real-time
data access and analytics. Until now, even the most talented development
teams were unable to meet this daunting challenge. As part of this
latest release, Telerik Platform now comes equipped with several new
components to round out everything an enterprise needs for successful
mobile app development and deployment, eliminating IT’s difficult choice
between easy-to-use and enterprise ready.
New components in Telerik Platform include:
Screen Builder: low code
development for developers and technical business users to work
hand-in-hand on mobile development efforts. Users of all development
skillsets can create and configure screens visually from a set of
pre-defined templates, as well as easily and securely connect to
enterprise data without the need to write custom code. With Screen
Builder, users can generate functional hybrid and native mobile apps
quickly. In addition, applications can be modified and extended at any
time through an integration with Telerik AppBuilder.
enables enterprises to release updates to in-production applications
without going through app store approval. Users now get immediate
updates, features and fixes in real-time without disruption.

Google Play and Windows stores.
real-time user analytics and integrates user feedback directly into
the development workflows within Telerik Platform. It offers custom
user reports and dashboards to ensure IT and development managers are
getting the right level of information when and how they need it.
Development Flexibility with an Open Source Native Development
There are use cases and places for any development approach – web,
hybrid or native. While native development is dominant in creating the
best user experience, it is a difficult and time consuming proposition,
a luxury many enterprise IT teams do not have.
With the release of NativeScript™,
and CSS, developers can leverage the benefits of native development with
the speed and agility of web development technologies. NativeScript
access to native device APIs.
In conjunction with the built-in support of Telerik Platform,
enterprises can use NativeScript framework with components such as
Screen Builder, AppManager and LiveSync to build and deploy a wealth of
apps, leveraging their choice of development approaches within a single
As an added benefit, the Telerik
Verified Plugins Marketplace, the definitive source for verified
Cordova plugins for hybrid mobile development, is expanding and will
soon support plug-ins for NativeScript.
Enterprise mBaaS for Simplified Data Integration, Offline
Enterprise mobility is much more than offering an array of services to
power an application. It is equally important to ensure easy access to
existing data stores, as well as the ability for applications to
function while offline. With this release, Telerik has expanded the
mBaaS capabilities within Telerik Platform by expanding on components
such as its offline sync engine to address a set of complex data
persistence and synchronization problems commonplace in mobile
application development scenarios.
Further, as a result of its acquisition of Telerik, Progress has
strategically integrated Progress®
DataDirect® connectors within Telerik Platform. By year end, Telerik
Platform will have more than 20 data connectors to enterprise systems,
including MS SQL, MySQL, Oracle DB, Postgre SQL, JDBC, SAP HANA, OData
for SAP, Salesforce and more.
Progress also expanded the rich ecosystem of components for Telerik
Platform with the addition of pre-built hybrid and native app templates.
The quick-start reusable templates will benefit the most common
scenarios for enterprise and customer apps--from SAP Sales Order to
Store Beacons App. The templates, available in the Mobile
Marketplace, are free for Telerik Platform customers. The
marketplace is also open to listings from other developers building
applications on Telerik Platform.
