Cloud-based cross-platform mobile development tool wins for the category “Best New Product of the Year”

WALTHAM, MA, March 19, 2013Telerik, an end-to-end provider of software development, lifecycle and content management tools and solutions, today announced that Icenium, the industry’s first Integrated Cloud Environment (ICE) for cross-platform hybridmobile development, has been selected as the Gold winner for the category “Best New Product of the Year” in the Best in Biz Awards 2013 EMEA, the only independent business awards program in Europe, Middle East and Africa judged by members of the press and industry analysts.

Icenium combines the power of the cloud with the convenience of a local coding environment enabling developers to use familiar web languages—HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript— to efficiently build and publish hybrid mobile Apple iOS and Google Android applications without being tethered to a place or a platform. Icenium provides advanced tools for coding, debugging, version control, simulation, and device deployment as well as publication assistance to the Apple App Store and Google Play.

A subscription to Icenium provides developers with:

  • Icenium Graphite, an installable development environment for PCs that seamlessly integrates with Icenium’s cloud services;
  • Icenium Mist, a browser-based development environment that enables mobile development from anywhere there is an internet connection. Compatible with PCs, Macs, Linux, Google Chromebooks and even tablet devices such as the iPad;
  • Kendo UI Mobile, Telerik’s innovative HTML5 framework for hybrid mobile development.
  • Icenium LiveSync, a tool that enables developers to preview app changes as they’re made in real-time across connected iOS and Android devices

Both Graphite and Mist can work individually or in tandem to provide a modern productivity tooling and a portable development environment.

“As the need for cross-platform mobile apps continues to expand, it is no wonder that developers are looking to the cloud to address their development environment challenges,” said Todd Anglin, Executive Vice President, Cross-Platform Tools & Services at Telerik. “Icenium manages all of the platform dependencies so developers can focus on developing the next great mobile app and not the frustrating tasks usually associated with managing a cross-platform mobile development workflow. The judges involved in the Best in Biz Awards have acknowledged the value we’re ringing to the community by honoring us with this award. We are grateful and look forward to continuing down the path of innovation now and well into the future.”
