With Kinvey, Schneider Electric can take a best practices approach to developing its Mobile Platform Architecture.
Pre-built integrations with Schneider backend systems and third-party services, such as BoxTM cloud storage, streamline the app development process. Corporate standards for consistency including pre-built UI components and Schneider Electricspecific SDKs work in conjunction with Kinvey’s client libraries to enable developers to deliver their apps quickly while maintaining Schneider Electric’s brand standards and a consistent user experience.
Along with the SDKs, Schneider Electric’s team has built a hybrid app development toolbox including a “BACK” stack consisting of Bootstrap, AngularJS, Cordova and Kinvey, and an integrated tool chain with collaboration, testing, integration and other capabilities needed to accelerate hybrid app development across the company.
This comprehensive approach enables the Schneider Electric web developers to seamlessly transition to mobile projects and eliminates the need to develop separate app versions for iOS, Android and mobile web, thus reducing development complexity and accelerating time to market. Other best practices include an internal community to share tips and tricks, and internal hackathons on Kinvey to encourage innovation and adoption across the company’s 4,000 developers.
