Stackato Goes Mobile: The FeedHenry Technology Collaboration and What It Means for Your Enterprise
Today, ActiveState announced a joint technology collaboration with FeedHenry. FeedHenry’s cloud-based mobile application platform simplifies the development, integration, deployment. and management of secure mobile apps for business. And that innovative mobile technology is now integrated with Stackato, providing a unified mobility solution for enterprises and developers looking to host mobile applications within a private cloud. An enterprise with Stackato’s private Platform as a Service (PaaS) can now rapidly develop and deploy mobile applications within the same private PaaS environment using FeedHenry.
The real-world enterprise needs to deliver, manage, and support mobile-ready applications, and Stackato with FeedHenry mobile technology now enables that enterprise to securely deploy and administer mobile-app server-side components within a Stackato private PaaS. And that ensures that mobile apps meet the same security and compliance criteria as private cloud apps. Even better, Stackato will enable IT administrators oversight over mobile and cloud applications via a unified management console view.
Today, most mobile applications developers build the app front-end first, and then connect the client to backend services (server) manually later, adjusting for production environment idiosyncrasies as they go. With FeedHenry now fully integrated into the Stackato ecosystem, developers can take a more integrated approach to development. FeedHenry plus Stackato lets those devs create their ideal front-end app while working with a simulated cross-platform production environment from the start: The back-end server can be deployed to the Cloud in a seamless manner directly from the FeedHenry IDE.
