Telerik, an end-to-end provider of software application, lifecycle and content management solutions, today announced the availability of its Mobile Developer Guidance, a reference document created to help decision-makers ensure alignment between mobile strategy and business goals. Written by Telerik technology leaders, the guidance offers concrete recommendations and scenarios for today’s most important mobile decision making. The Mobile Developer Guidance is available immediately, free of charge, on the Kendo UI website.

Within the Mobile Developer Guidance, Telerik leaders and experts in their fields, Todd Anglin, Chris Sells, Doug Seven and Stephen Forte, discuss prevalent issues including:

  •     Cross-platform or single-platform development
  •     Development techniques – browser, hybrid or native
  •     Flexibility, time-to-market, cost and performance
  •     Mobile form factors – one size fits all or the tailored experience
  •     Mobile websites versus mobile browser apps
  •     Future disruptors – Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8; Chrome OS, Firefox OS and Tizen; 7-inch tablets and platform proliferation

In addition to outlining these core issues, the executives offer a series of pros and cons as well as the best environment for each opportunity. They also highlight common scenarios for consideration, during the decision making process.

“Making the wrong decisions can significantly impact the cost, capability and reach of your mobile apps. The goal of the Mobile Developer Guidance is to offer decision makers some key considerations and focus, surrounding their mobile strategy,” said Todd Anglin, Vice President, HTML5 Web and Mobile Tools at Telerik. “In it, we discuss the two elements core to any mobile development project – which platforms to support and how will the app be developed to support the platforms. Our hope is that this document will be useful at multiple levels, in ensuring the choices made today will support the overarching goals of the business in the future.”

The Mobile Developer Guidance is available immediately. For more information and to download this highly informative document, please visit the Mobile Developer Guidance page.
