Mobile Enterprise Application Platform

A mobile enterprise application platform (MEAP) provides a comprehensive set of capabilities that enable the rapid development and delivery of mobile applications such as hybrid mobile apps. The right mobile enterprise application platform removes the technical challenges of developing mobile apps that work across mobile platforms and devices while integrating seamlessly with back-end systems and processes.

Core components of a mobile enterprise application platform

A mobile enterprise application platform (MEAP) is a subcategory within the platform as a service layer. Also known as a mobile application development platform (MADP), these solutions are ideal for organizations that need to deliver multiple mobile apps quickly but lack the resources and expertise to develop standalone apps for multiple platforms and device types.

There are two core components within a mobile application platform:

  • While many platform as a service providers simplify mobile application deployment, few deliver the necessary abstraction and automation across the entire application lifecycle. The right application platform will offer a complete solution to speed the design, development, deployment, management and iteration of mobile apps. Moreover, they will enable any developer to rapidly build cross-platform mobile apps without any specific mobile development skills.
  • In addition to speed of delivery, a mobile application platform is tailored to the unique challenges associated with mobile application development. Make sure that your vendor provides cross-platform support and middleware services that allow you to build an app once and deploy it anywhere; leverage native device functions; and seamlessly integrate with back-end systems and processes.
