Explore the need for easy integration of mobile applications with data stored on object stores. Cloud storage enables users and applications to store data remotely and access it from anywhere, at any time, and from any device. For large-scale data items in this type of paradigm, object storage like IBM Spectrum Scale Object (based on OpenStack Swift) is ideal for software-defined storage. On the other hand, IBM MobileFirst is the platform of choice for disruptive mobile app development, with various features for developing end-to-end, mobile-based business solutions.

This article provides an overview of IBM Spectrum Scale Object, a state-of-the-art object store offering, and IBM MobileFirst, a popular platform for developing multi-platform mobile applications. It includes a custom-built MobileFirst adapter that can be used to develop mobile apps with easy access and integration with the data stored on the IBM Spectrum Scale Object store.
