Resources to help you develop feature-rich mobile apps for multiple platforms

Concepts are just talk until you develop the mobile apps that bring them to life. Complications can arise at any time and come from any direction. IBM can help you design, develop and integrate mobile applications for your enterprise faster and with fewer surprises.

Here are downloads, demos, and white papers to help you stay ahead.


Help with your app design

You're jumping through three hoops at once — aligning the interface, data, and security layers. How do you make sure your app is secure? Build cross-platform apps to reach the most customers? Identify mobile users and determine permissions? Get the most our of your mobile device management (MDM) software?

IBM can help you with mobile website design and development, app design, and data access and security.

Help as you integrate

Your mobile app can't live in isolation — it must connect securely to external data sources located within the enterprise or in the cloud. How do you quickly integrate your mobile app with the enterprise without compromising requirements around response times, low battery use, and bandwidth restrictions?

IBM can help you synchronize, connect and secure to deliver true mobile cloud computing.
