Why Read This Report?:
In the latest installment in our “hands-on mobile” series, we rebuild and deploy the simple mobile application we built last fall with the KonyOne mobile middleware platform. The KonyOne platform allows developers to build and deploy apps in a variety of mobile configurations, including apps that run natively on Android, iOS, and Research In Motion (RIM) devices. In the process, we install the KonyOne platform and use Kony Studio to define mobile forms, wrap web services, and map RESTful payload data into form fields as well as deploy the app as a native app and a web app to multiple mobile devices.
