IBM Worklight のメリットと特長:
IBM MobileFirst Platform Foundation
The latest version of IBM Worklight can help your organization quickly and cost effectively deliver high-quality, high-impact mobile apps. Here is just a sample of some of the new features IBM Worklight delivers:
Expedite development of mobile apps that connect to back-end services
IBM Worklight wizards allow developers to explore available SOAP (exposed via Web Services Description Language) and SAP Netweaver Gateway back-end services and automatically generate integration code, helping to quickly deliver high quality mobile apps.
Reduce time-consuming manual test processes
IBM Worklight helps make mobile app testing a straightforward process with an integrated mobile app testing capability. Simply record a sequence of actions on a mobile device, and use this recording as the basis of an intelligent, resilient and code-less test case that can be played back on demand on any iOS or Android device within the same OS family—and even on emulated devices.
Gain insight on app usage and responsiveness by location
New customer experience analytics embedded in IBM Worklight provide user-centered views of performance and usage of mobile applications. Developers can instrument their mobile apps with an analytics framework that collects data as the app is being used. The results can be reported as IT diagnostics information—allowing organizations to track app usage and responsiveness by location. For example, a sudden drop-off or low rate of usage can pinpoint a software defect.
The instrumentation framework can be easily extended with IBM Tealeaf® CX Mobile to analyze mobile apps for greater marketing insight.
Collect geo-location data without exhausting mobile resources
Geo-location data is one of the most powerful differentiators of mobile apps. Yet because coordinates must be constantly polled to understand where a mobile device is located, the resulting stream of information is difficult to manage without exhausting resources such as battery and network.
With IBM Worklight, developers simply set policies for acquiring geo-location data and send it in batch only when needed to trigger business actions. The resulting apps can help organizations leverage geographic presence for business and operational insight.
IBM Worklight Studio is an Eclipse based IDE, allowing developers to perform coding, testing and integration tasks for web, hybrid or native mobile applications.
IBM Worklight Server is a scalable gateway between mobile application and enterprise or third party back-end and services. It acts as an auditable control point for mobile activities and contains strong security features such as multi-factor authentication and mobile applications authenticity checks. The IBM Worklight Server enables data connectivity with multi-source data extraction and manipulation, mobile application management, analytics and unified push notifications.
IBM Worklight Device Runtime Components consist of client-side runtime code compiled into final applications that embed functionality such as an off-line, encrypted and synchable datastore that interacts with the IBM Worklight Server.
IBM Worklight Application Center is a multi-platform private enterprise app store that helps organizations govern the distribution of any production-ready mobile apps across the enterprise with appropriate access control and role-based security, and elicit and organize user feedback. It can also be used by development teams to automate the distribution of pre-release software versions, and analyze feedback by version and device—accelerating cycle time.
IBM Worklight Console is a web-based UI dedicated to the ongoing monitoring and administration of the IBM Worklight Server and its deployed apps, adapters and push notifications, that helps summarize the various statistical measures of platform usage.
