Telerik Shoots Down Silver Bullet Frameworks

The new Telerik app platform spans web, hybrid, and native development as a modular offering composed of UI tools and cloud services.

CEO of Telerik Vassil Terziev says that the days of trying to deliver mobile app strategies in isolation with "silver bullet" frameworks are over and that Telerik supports a modern adaptive development strategy.

"Unlike competing offerings, it allows developers to integrate a single module into their existing infrastructure and adopt the complete platform as their needs grow," he said.

So Telerik offers web, hybrid, and native on any OS: iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Windows, and Blackberry. This extends to any device; i.e., desktops, tablets, smartphones, and on what the company calls any technology: .NET, JavaScript/HTML5, Java JSP, and PHP.

"The Telerik Platform provides a single, unified interface to facilitate streamlined development, deployment, management, and maintenance of cross-platform applications, regardless of the approach taken. It is standalone but also built to integrate with third-party products, so developers can continue to use their existing tools and services, while making it easy to integrate into any development workflow," said Terziev.

A set cloud services is integrated with the entire suite of the Telerik Platform to optimize design, delivery, management, and real-time analysis of apps across all screens.

There are services here for development (including IDE, UI libraries, and APIs), debugging, automated testing, deployment, management, measurement, and collaboration.
