The Mobile Business Object... Your Mobile Way Forward

At the heart of SUP

Today's Real Time Enterprise is mobility

 and it is my belief that if you as an enterprise are not either starting or have plans for developing mobile apps, that give you massive competitive advantages, then your competitors will be and you are going to be left in the starting blocks... but enough evangelizing ;-).

As you probably know the Mobile Business Object (MBO) is at the heart of Sybase's UnWired Platform, which is a Mobile Enterprise Application Platform used in turn as part of the SAP Mobility Platform. Once defined the MBO can be used in Native (such as iOS) as well as Hybrid Web Container Applications.

It can be described in four points

  • Defines the data you want to use from your backend system and exposes it to be used for your mobile application /workflow
  • Created using our simple, graphical tooling inside the Eclipse development environment
  • Re-usable, allowing you to leverage across multiple device types
  • Future proofing of your application, when new device types are added your same MBO can be used

Now I wanted to give you a heads up to a great MBO Best Practices resources that just got posted... Enjoy
