Mobile applications are becoming more and more important - also for businesses. As a mobile developer you will have to adapt to different platforms and you have to ensure security when it comes to data storage and data transport between device and backend. Last but not least you need a system to handle the transactions between your app and backend systems. This increasing complexity and need for cross-platform availability results in higher cost in all phases of the application life cycle. Large enterprises leverage Mobile Enterprise Application Platforms (MEAP) to reduce cost and complexity of mobile app development significantly. Frank Fischer, Chief Evangelist and Head of Platform and Technology at Deutsche Telekom's Developer Garden, shows how everybody can leverage the cloud to efficiently develop and run mobile cross-platform applications and the necessary backend without large investments.
