MobileFirst-Logo-500x326Mobile development increasingly becoming the norm for businesses. According an IBM Institute for Business Value study, 77 percent of executives plan to undertake at least five enterprise mobile initiatives over the next year.

As more and more enterprises take advantage of cloud computing, it only makes sense that mobile development and cloud technology should work together. That’s why the IBM MobileFirst development platform has given users the option to use a toolset provisioned through IBM Bluemix.

Michael Gilfix, vice president of IBM MobileFirst and Smarter Process, put it this way: “We see this release as being the fusion of the infrastructure that enterprises need for safe, secure application development with speed and married with cloud.”

MobileFirst was previously only available in an on premises capacity, but security improvements and new features have helped make including a cloud option possible.

Gartner ranked IBM as the leader in mobile application development platforms in its recent Magic Quadrant report.
