FREMONT, CA: Progress, an enterprise Platform-as-a-service (PaaS) solutions provider, announces latest Telerik Platform 2.0 to its Telerik Platform that provide mobile app development platform for iOS, Android and Windows Phone Applications. Telerik 2.0 enables developers to create productive mobile user experiences seamlessly.

Telerik Platform allows developers to have complete access to the life cycle of app development through a single app-centric interface, saving considerable effort and time of the developers. The single app-centric interface reduces extraneous efforts by the developers while working with different technologies.

A new unified, app-centric interface of the latest release integrates cloud services such as push notifications and analytics into the app development process, and the company brings this integration to API layer, providing a single app ID to developers to work over all services and software Development Kits (SDKs) integrated with the app.

Telerik Platform 2.0 includes a beta version of Continuous Integration (CI) build support with a Jenkins plugin to those enterprise developers who need the ability to include cloud builds in their existing CI workflow.

Hybrid and Native Development Options

Telerik Platform provides technologies to developers and enterprise development managers to create cross-platform mobile apps, and empowers them to choose appropriate approaches such as web, hybrid or native as per the existing skills and needs of the app. NativeScript, a framework enabling developers to build native apps with JavaScript and CSS is also included in the Telerik Platform 2.0.

The company extends cross-platform development support for JavaScript developers by launching Verified Plugins Marketplace for NativeScript along with selective list of open source plugins for Cordava/PhoneGap.

Progress also supports iOS 9, Android 6(M) and Apple Watch apps in its cloud build services. Telerik platform and its Visual studio with expanded debugging capabilities, and completely redesigned set of Companion apps, offer developers build, test and debug these apps.

Advances in Mobilizing Data and Reporting

Telerik Platform 2.0 with a series of connectors powered by Progress DateDirect drivers allow developers to leverage enterprise data in MS SQL Server, Oracle, MYSQL, PostgreSQL and Salesforce. Developers can quickly build mobile-friendly content types from legacy on-premise and cloud-based data sources by using these connectors.

The company also releases latest additions to Telerik Backend Services, including a preview of aggregation queries and support for scheduling of recurring cloud jobs, and the developers also get latest analytics including top-level dashboards, engagement cohorts.

“Today, mobile developers are required to deliver cross-platform apps with powerful backends, insightful user analytics and engaging notifications-all while keeping development costs to a minimum. As a result, the need for synergy between tools and services that support multiple devices, operating systems and business models has never been higher,” says Brandon Satrom, GM, Developer and Tools, Progress. “Telerik Platform 2.0 gives developers a glimpse into what is possible for cross-platform mobile application development, with enhancements to deliver high-quality apps faster than ever before.”
