Kony Solutions, the leading mobile enterprise application platform provider, today announced a new Kony-Gartner Inc. webinar addressing the IT challenges associated with developing applications across multiple channels and thousands of devices, for a wide range of mobile workers.

The new webinar will be offered Thurs. March 15 at 11 am, 1 pm and 4 pm ET. Registration details are available at: http://www.kony.com/gartner-webinar-mobile-app-development-meets-mainstream.

“Application development for mobile users is fast becoming indistinguishable from mainstream application development. With today's open, standards-based mobile platform capabilities, developers can not only write apps once and deploy them across multiple mobile devices and channels, they can now do so with more assurance of connectivity, configurability, and extensibility than ever before,” said Sri Ramanathan, CTO of Kony Solutions.

During the webinar, Ramanathan and William Clark, Research VP for Gartner Inc. will discuss how organizations can establish mobile app development best practices that leverage multi-channel mobility across a range of business units and mobile worker profiles.

Participants in the webinar will:

  • Learn how to plan for multiple device types – including iOS, Android, RIM, Symbian and Windows phones as well as Android and iOS tablets – as well as multiple device modes including native, hybrid, wrapper, and HTML5 apps
  • Understand the development and application provisioning challenges and opportunities inherent in multi-channel mobile computing
  • See a demo of Kony’s write-once, run-everywhere mobile application platform for building and deploying mobile apps to multiple devices and channels from a single integrated platform
  • Understand how to approach device fragmentation and build a strategy that enables innovation for meeting critical business needs

Kony’s flagship product is its KonyOne mobile enterprise application Platform. Kony’s “Write Once, Run Everywhere” technology enables developers to deploy their apps across more than 9,000 mobile smartphones/tablets/kiosks and operating systems from a single codebase. Changes and upgrades can then be handled rapidly, without the need for rebuilding or republishing mobile apps.

All Kony applications can be delivered in native and mobile web (HTML5 and non-HTML5) and Kony is the only vendor to offer Service Level Agreements (SLAs) for support of new operating systems, form factors, and devices, thereby enabling enterprises to stay ahead of the mobile technology curve.
