IBM and AT&T to provide software developers with set of new tools
Mar 06, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
IBM and AT&T Inc., a provider of telecommunications services, have announced an expanded relationship to provide software developers with a set of new tools to create and deploy next generation mobile apps.
AT&T has been expanding its network capabilities and increasing access to research from AT&T Labs across a range of mobile development platforms, including IBM Worklight.
Part of the IBM MobileFirst Application and Data Platform, IBM Worklight is a mobile app platform for mobile devices. Now, the AT&T API Platform, featuring IBM Worklight Adapters, will enable the more than 31,000 members of the AT&T Developer Program to create and deploy enterprise apps.
With these adapters that support AT&T's ecosystem of APIs including those for speech, SMS, device capabilities, notary management and payment, developers can quickly and securely create rich, business-ready apps across a variety of platforms including iOS, Android and Windows.
"As the business opportunities associated with mobile technologies move beyond the device to the enterprise, we must continue to invest in tools and resources that enable developers to create apps that meet changing demands. Our partners at AT&T share this commitment to building out the mobile development ecosystem and driving more value from mobile technologies," said Phil Buckellew, vice president, mobile strategy, IBM. "With access to some of the most powerful development tools in the industry, developers will now be better able to help organizations accelerate and monetize their mobile strategies."
