The following guidelines are important when designing mobile application frameworks.
Reusable components, this is the key to develop mobile application frameworks which results reduction of overall development cost of mobile applications.Some of Auxenta’s reusable libraries are authentication, cryptography, themeing, scaling, caching, logging, auditing, internationalization, data synchronization, hybrid webview, compression, social media connectors, Bluetooth, NFC, barcode, security, network, storage, charts etc.
Mobile is driving the adoption of cloud in the enterprise: Make sure the framework architecture accounts for cloud-based data delivery, with the flexibility to run on public and private clouds.
Enable agility with security:Enterprise mobile developers need to build and launch apps quickly, while IT still needs the solution to be compliant with their governance needs. At Auxenta, we call this blend of agility and security the “developerization” of IT and use specialized tools/libraries to accelerate this process.
Need to mobilize legacy enterprise data and authentication systems:Securely connect mobile apps with on-premise systems that sit inside enterprise firewalls. Also we provide libraries for enterprise and consumer mobile authentication.
Ensure secure, compliant app use:To reduce risk and adhere to strict IT policies, a mobile architecture needs to monitor data on the network, ensure only authorized users have access to the app, every transaction is recorded for audit, and apps, users and data can be de-provisioned on-demand.
Hardware / Platform flexibility:Enterprises need to support new platforms all the time because their employees use all kinds of devices and OS platforms (BYOD trend). Apps need to run on all those platforms, and therefore, the mobile developer needs the freedom and choice to use the best SDK that fits the app experience required. Don’t lock them in.
