What’s happening @InterConnect2017 with Mobile

I'm excited to let you know about the extensive set of activities the IBM Mobile team will be delivering at the event to capitalize on the key role mobile plays in pretty much everything.

Query many data sources as one: IBM Queryplex for data analytics

Queryplex runs advanced analytics (SQL, Python, R, PySpark, etc) across many devices and data sources as though they are a single consolidated data repository. The technology can be used to erase data silos of multiple databases (e.g. Oracle, DB2, PostgreSQL, Netezza), or compute analytics across tens of thousands of distributed Internet of Things devices where data may be stored in smaller repositories (text files, Excel spreadsheets, Informix, MySQL). Queryplex let's you query many data sources at once with a single statement, whether they are large repositories, small devices, or any combination of them.

IBM Mobile Application Content Manager Service Retirement

We’d like to inform you that we are retiring the Mobile Application Content Manager (MACM) service on February 28, 2017. As of March 30, 2017, MACM will be replaced with IBM Watson Content Hub, our new SaaS Omni-channel content management solution, which will also support content for mobile applications.

Bluemix mobile projects integrate backend apps, generate SDKs

App developers take note! As you may know, using the IBM® Bluemix® Mobile Dashboard you can associate cloud native services (like security, push notifications, and analytics) with your mobile app, and then generate a downloadable package which contains client code along with microservice SDKs. As a developer, this alone can save you a ton of time. But now, you can reduce development time further and radically simplify your mobile app code. All by adding custom backend apps to your Bluemix mobile project, and then automatically generating SDKs for them.
