Consumer Demands, Business Reality: United with Telerik

Consumer Demands, Business Reality: United with Telerik

Posted on December 03, 2014 0 Comments

In past blog posts and webinars, I've spoken about the new reality for enterprise application providers: business applications have to look, feel and work like consumer ones. We all live and interact in a digital world, and our workplaces flow in and out of that world.

This means that business software cannot just help employees do their jobs. It has to compel them to keep doing it, and do it better, faster and more productively. Consumer apps are fun to use—they can be playful and silly, minimalist and sleek, or immediate and compelling. Often they can be beautiful to look at and provide exciting experiences. Most of all, they are easy to use.

Meet Telerik, now a Progress Company

Progress® announced yesterday that its acquisition of Telerik AD was complete. Telerik is now Telerik® A Progress Company. The Telerik portfolio comprises a full suite of app dev and cloud tools, application lifecycle management (ALM), and a content management system (CMS), Sitefinity.

I am excited to let you know that the Telerik PlatformSM is now part of the Progress mobility portfolio. The Telerik Platform, a full-lifecycle application development and deployment platform for iOS, Android and Windows Phone, includes Backend as a Service (BaaS), analytics, mobile testing and JavaScript logic among its many capabilities.

We recognize that there are multiple factors that should be considered in selecting the best development approach – type of application, deployment approach, developer skillset, etc. Progress now provides:

  • Progress® Rollbase®: Enables organizations to rapidly build, deploy and manage web-based and mobile apps using a low-code approach.
  • Telerik Platform: Provides professional development tools for building apps with an integrated tool set which improves the quality, usability and utility of mobile apps

With the Progress suite of technologies, application developers now have one source for building and deploying business applications that compel, amaze and deliver results in this new digital world.
