appMobi Adds Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 Support to Its Cross Platform HTML5 Dev Tools

appMobi (www.appMobi.com) today announced the addition of Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 to its list of supported mobile and desktop platforms. appMobi provides industry-leading tools and services that support massively cross platform app development using JavaScript and HTML5. With the addition of Microsoft’s platforms to appMobi’s arsenal, app developers who use JavaScript and HTML5 can create and deploy desktop or mobile apps to all major app stores and devices from a single JavaScript code base.

Dave Kennedy, appMobi CEO said, “The benefits of adding Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 to appMobi’s supported platforms run both ways: hundreds of thousands of developers who use appMobi to build apps with JavaScript and HTML5 can now port them to the Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 with a simple rebuild. Conversely, developers using Visual Studio can now leverage appMobi’s cross platform ecosystem to address iOS, Android, Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 platforms without recoding in native languages. Adding major market presence without major effort is a big win for all developers.”

“It’s important to minimize the friction for developers to build great apps for Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8. By integrating their tools into Visual Studio, appMobi made it easy for developers to reuse their HTML5 and JavaScript skills,” said Jean-Christophe Cimetiere, director of Windows Phone partner & developer programs at Microsoft Corp.

These new app templates provide developers with code for supporting generic apps, Web apps, accelerated games, and Facebook apps. Developers can use these templates to create cross platform apps immediately by visiting http://goo.gl/L3V0Q.

appMobi has also integrated support for Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 into its appHub cross platform build tool. With appHub, a single JavaScript/HTML5 app can be built into app store-ready binary files for iOS, Android, Facebook, Windows Phone, Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Mozilla app stores. Developers can access appHub at http://apphub.appmobi.com.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
