Tibco has released Silver Mobile 1.0 as an app development platform for the
burgeoning bring-you-own-device (BYOD) trend.
Silver Mobile 1.0 allows enterprise users to develop and manage apps for BYOD devices, Tibco said. The product gives clients the ability to leverage their business-centric software for use on end-user devices, such as the iPhone 5.
Tibco says the offering gives enterprise the added speed and security needed to handle BYOD demands.
"Mobile devices have changed the way employees work, and enterprises realise they need to very quickly develop and deploy mission-critical mobile apps that can improve productivity and give employees secure, real-time access to corporate information," said Tibco Software's chief technology officer Matt Quinn.
"Tibco Silver Mobile 1.0 is a breakthrough in mobile platform development that enables the enterprise to develop device strategies that are critical to attracting mobile-centric customers and employees."
The BYOD trend has been growing in recent months. Intel recently said in its mid-year report that a BYOD programme saved the firm $3m in operating costs. The technology heavyweight also reported that its BYOD programme saw employee productivity jump 57 minutes a day.
Along with the Silver Mobile announcement Tibco also brings an update to its cloud platform with Silver Fabric 5.0. Tibco's Silver Fabric update will allow companies to manage and host their own app store within a private cloud.
The update to Silver Fabric aims to ease enterprise demands with its platform-as-a-service (PaaS) model. Tibco says the update will reduce private cloud resource demands and improve self-service provisioning capabilities.
All of Tibco's recent announcements were made at the company's annual TUCON user conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. Tibco's new products are available now.
