FeedHenry has just launched its Mobile Application Platform on the Cloud Foundry open Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). The company wants to address the reality we now see where the majority of new application development is being done "mobile-first".
However, says FeedHenry, developers are building mobile frontend applications separately and then integrating them with backend services manually. To leverage the benefits of PaaS for mobile applications properly, developers need an easy way to develop cross-platform applications on the PaaS.
"We are seeing a shift to mobile-first development within enterprises, which requires their PaaS solution to provide an integrated mobile development and deployment platform," said Jerry Chen, vice president of cloud and application services at VMware. "FeedHenry's cross-platform mobile development solution can make it easier and faster for Cloud Foundry developers to build and deploy these applications."
