Software Engineer - Development at a tech services company with 501-1,000 employees
Valuable features include: * Built-in platform APIs for configuring push notifications. * APIs to generate custom analytics events. * Connectors that can be used to connect to various enterprise backends and third-party systems. Now they have rolled out Oracle Autonomous Mobile Cloud Enterprise which also helps us to develop chatbots. We have implemented Facebook Channel enabled Chatbots using AMCe that allows to interact with Oracle EBS modules like HRMS. Here user can interact with chatbots to get the details about approved leaves, available leaves & also have the provision to apply leave. For one of our major clients, we wrote custom APIs in Oracle Autonomous Mobile Cloud to convert SOAP APIs to REST APIs. We were also able to integrate SSO functionality in their mobile application using Virtual Zero Footprint SSO. Oracle Autonomous Mobile Cloud has a built in token exchange endpoint that allows to generate SSO tokens using third party JWT or SAML tokens. We have also implemented Browser Based SSO in some of our client mobile applications. View full review »
Markus Travaille says in a Mendix review
Business Development Manager & Project manager at EGALiT
* The complete stack: You have a complete cloud operations, and everything is included. For every customer, wherever we go, we can provide a solution within a few days with a complete data environment in a very stable, high performance cloud. * The development environment is model-driven. We really like this because we can use the information from this for our business engineers to make the information models, and they can also execute the model. * We do not need programmers anymore, so it is a small team of business engineers who design and build the application without us needing to program. That makes our teams four to six times more productive, but also a lot smaller with no overhead and very flexible. It is something, and not every Mendix partner does this. A lot of them have still use analysts and programmers in different roles, but we do not do this. I like that we use the platform on this level. We stick within the core of the platform, so we don't do anything with custom Java or custom JavaScript. View full review »
PRAMOD JAIN says in an OutSystems review
Associate Architect at a tech services company with 1,001-5,000 employees
It has so many features and almost every one of them is awesome. It makes our development life easier. The most important features of this tool are its visual modeling capabilities and drag and drop functionality. You can see what you are coding which makes it easy to understand and maintain. They have also created a big revolution in digital transformation by introducing native mobile app development under the same IDE. Integrations with external systems with SOAP and REST are easy to implement off-the-shelf, but a developer can always implement specific libraries for other integrations. View full review »

Solution Architect at a tech services company with 201-500 employees
Oracle MCS is more than just a Mobile Backend as a Service (MBaaS) solution. It is a complete eco-system for implementing mobile applications, covering typical standard features, like Notification Management, Offline Data Synchronization or Location-based Services. In addition, MCS provides capabilities for creating Mobile applications using Oracle Mobile Application Framework (MAF). In addition, you can use Oracle Mobile Accelerator (MAX), which is a no-code development platform to create, test, and publish sophisticated cross-platform mobile apps. Through connectors, MCS can easily be connected to backend services (REST, SOAP, ICS). These connectors make the usage of backend services in Custom APIs much easier since in the connector configuration, things like security can simply be declared without the need for writing any code for such things in your custom APIs. Custom APIs in MCS are Node.js implementations where things like data transformations and contract tailorings, e.g., only return 10 out of 100 attributes of a business object, can be done to create new mobile-optimized Single-purpose APIs a.k.a., Backend For Frontends. For speeding up the development of native (iOS, Android, Windows) or hybrid mobile apps (Cordova-based apps, JavaScript apps), MCS provides corresponding SDKs. This makes apps development easier and more efficient. View full review »

reviewer1016565 says in a Microsoft Azure App Service review
Architect at a energy/utilities company with 5,001-10,000 employees
I like that you can see everything once you log on to the portals. You can see everything including the pricing of the solution. You know how much it's going to cost your client, how much it is going to cost you monthly or daily and you can even control the usage so that you pay even less. So you have better control over things. View full review »

Azure App Service is a fully managed Platform as a Service (PaaS) that integrates bunch of services into a single service. One of its valuable service is Azure Web Apps that helps to develop and deploy enterprise-ready web applications. Microsoft Azure will take care of application deployment and management, while the developer only needs to concentrate on app development. View full review »

Saif Ul Islam Khan says in a Kony review
Sr Managing Consultant at Abacus Consulting
The best feature is the Kony Studio, which is the product that is used to develop interfaces. It has support for mobile interfaces, desktop-based interfaces, and kiosk-based interfaces. We have a lot of different widgets available like text boxes and other UI controls that can easily be put onto the screen and start working right away. The next feature is the Kony Fabric application, which is an integration tool. This helps me to connect to the backend. For example, if I have a backend for SAP, or an ASP.NET layer that provides me services, or a custom application that provides some kind of endpoints such as business endpoints, then Fabric can easily connect to these endpoints and provide different drag and drop features. Once it connects to the backend services and it shows what kind of data model the backend is providing, I can easily map to my front end interface using drag and drop controls in the Studio. The third feature that I really like is the teamwork that it offers. I have an online mobile app, which I can present my application to. While I am working on the development, I can simply publish my app on that, online, and the customer can easily download that app and test it in real time. The means that the customer is fully engaged. They know what we are doing, so it builds up a lot of confidence in the customers. View full review »
Varun Malik says in an Appium review
Architect - Automation at DMI (Digital Management, Inc.)
Appium is a very good tool because with its help we can automate all of the platforms, Android, iOS, or Windows, and there is a single solution. We can create a single framework for all platforms that can satisfy all of the needs. Being an open source solution it is free of cost. Otherwise, there are other open source tools for particular platforms, but with the Appium library, we can automate all major platforms. View full review »

Director at Softica bvba
It's a product we know but they use modern tools and give us the ability to connect with the world outside Magic. For us, it's more internet applications, not so much the mobile thing. We also like the web service and the ability to communicate with other systems. In the old fashioned version we had to work with text files and so on, and now we can use the XML. It has the ability to create XML in an easier way. View full review »

The Cross Platform is a great asset. We develop and then at the end, we publish other mobile apps to Android and to iPhone platforms. We develop stand-alone apps for Android and the iPhone and then transfer our development to Xamarin because it's much easier. View full review »
Jane Jane says in a Xamarin Platform review
User at a manufacturing company
Provides a wide variety of technical work and some interesting problems to solve. Being able to use the .NET framework and platform have me creating applications better than anyone who develops on Windows. Being able to use Visual Studio means development gets to use the best IDE currently available. Xamarin is well-integrated with Visual Studio so it will feel very familiar to you once you start.

We masked the client request and sent it to KMF using RSA. The same goes for all responses of API which were encrypted and masked to be read by the client app. This was done for man-in-the-middle attacks. View full review »

Michael Henke says in a Xamarin Platform review
Manager Mobile Software Development at Seamgen, LLC
The ability to share a platform-agnostic common core, or business logic, enables a mobile developer to write code for all targeted mobile platforms, independent of the individual developer's specialization in iOS, Android, or Windows. This helps not only during development but also enables easier maintenance of deployed apps, since bug fixes or feature additions can be often made in the platform-agnostic layer. View full review »
