Home Cloud Services Salesforce.com serves up a feast for mobile app developers

Salesforce Mobile Platform Services is designed to simplify the creation of mobile apps that connect to business data held in Salesforce.com.

The first two components of Salesforce Mobile Platform Services are the Salesforce Mobile SDK 2.0 (available in June) and Developer Mobile Packs (available now).

Salesforce Mobile SDK 2.0 will ease the connection of native, hybrid or HTML5 apps on iOS or Android devices to enterprise data.

It will also provide access to hardware features such as the camera and location, as well as services such as authentication and secure offline storage.

Developer Mobile Packs are designed to allow any web developer to create HTML5 or hybrid mobile apps that access Salesforce.com data using the popular AngularJS, Backbone.js and jQuery Mobile JavaScript frameworks.

Salesforce.com executive vice president for the Salesforce platform Mike Rosenbaum said "With these new mobile services, CIOs can immediately accelerate every mobile app dev project in their backlog."

"By combining the world's leading customer platform with the mobile tools and frameworks developers love, we have made it possible for CIOs and web developers to deliver the mobile apps their customers, partners and employees are screaming for."

Among the early adopters is medical device manufacturer Zimmer. Associate director of sales operations Don Lamping said "In just 12 weeks, Zimmer launched a custom iPad app to share the latest details on new surgical techniques and how Zimmer's medical devices function within the human body."

"Leveraging the Salesforce Platform saved time and resources in the development process and transformed our relationships with doctors and patients," he added.
