At build-time, the client code is pushed to a build farm where the native binary is created; the server-side code is staged with a single command to the FeedHenry cloud (or to any public or private cloud supporting Node.js). The mobile application platform automatically synchronizes the app client with the Node.js backend and provides scaling as well as built-in redundancy, lifecycle management, and reporting.
"As enterprises mature with their mobility initiatives and start getting into more sophisticated apps where they need complex integration with the backend and the cloud, the play will shift to the server side," said Cathal McGloin, CEO, FeedHenry. "The server side will become a crucial part of every mobile initiative as enterprises see how much more they can do with apps to increase revenue and boost employee productivity. Apps are fast becoming the new tool within organizations, but with that there's the headache on the server side with security, scalability, performance, and management. With Node.js, FeedHenry's mobile application platform offers an easy way to build mobile app solutions for the enterprise that takes care of the server side functionality."
