Worklight: A Mobile Solution from IBM

with 2 comments

Recently I blogged about my first pass at this technology on our Corporate blog, Technically Speaking.  I took a brief tour on my Macintosh because of my interest in Apple’s iOS and because I wanted to see how much of a hassle it would be to install. It really wasn’t difficult at all. Yes, it took more work than most end user apps but it was easy.

On a related note, the app touts its ability to create hybrid apps. I am still sorting this out. What, exactly, does this mean. Does it simply mean that there are ‘native’ components and ‘web’ components or is this something more sophisticated. In my view it is the latter.  The Worklight server provides the plumbing by which the native app, through the Worklight API, can access enterprise data.

This could mean that an organization can deploy apps that integrate corporate data into their mobile environment with relative ease and with the additional assurance that the data is managed securely.

Need to think about this some more but it looks very interesting.
