Forrester on Enterprise Mobility
Enterprise mobility is the manifestation of a
much broader shift to new systems of
engagement.
These new systems help firms empower
their customers, partners, and employees
with context-aware apps and smart
products.

Gartner Recommends a Hybrid Approach for
Business-to-Employee Mobile Apps
HTML5-based web apps and native apps, will be
used in more than 50 percent of mobile apps by
2016
"Predicts 2013: Portal and Web Technologies."

a more powerful customer experience
 Extend the Power and Reliability of an OpenEdge
Application
• Bring Business Entities from your “System of
Engagement“ application
• Surround your existing OpenEdge Application with
mobile applications to address gaps/expand the power
of customer engagement

OpenEdge Mobile Apps = “The Best Of Both Worlds”
Hybrid App (Native Wrapper + Web App)
• Standards-based solution
• Write the UI code once, deploy to multiple devices
• Native container provides support for App Store and
HTML5 limitations
By 2015, 80% of all mobile
web applications developed
will be hybrid or mobile web.

Mobile Applications in OpenEdge: Dual Approach
 OpenEdge REST Adapter
• Loosely-coupled architecture
• Any client
• Define Service Interface using annotations
• HTTP/JSON
 OpenEdge Mobile
• Tightly-coupled architecture - prescriptive
• Mobile App Builder using jQuery Mobile and Cordova
• Business Entity support as well as service interface annotations
• HTTP/JSON but prescriptive content
19

Development: Integrated Development Environment
 Developer Studio for OE
• Define and build Mobile services
• JavaScript Data Object (JSDO) catalog
• Build native mobile apps
• Deploy Mobile services, Mobile web apps
• Run in emulator
21

 Mobile App Builder
• Drag-n-drop UI designer
• Tight data binding to OE data using JSDO
• Build and export native mobile apps for
deployment
• Integrated emulator
Quick Start - Express Mobile App
 Select a database table
 Automatic check of system configuration
 Wait while App is built and deployed (~3 minutes)
• Fully functional CRUD Mobile App with login screen
