Mobile apps are transforming businesses and governments, who are increasingly using the power of software to digitize all elements of their operations. Mobile apps are a critically important form factor for corporate workloads because today’s end users are increasingly mobile-first in the way they engage with the digital world, and mobile devices and connections are growing exponentially in power and responsiveness, increasing their suitability for on-device data computation use cases.
However, mobile devices and their associated services are primarily designed for consumers. They are difficult for organizations to control, and they require constant change. This means that existing enterprise app release and deployment tools that support other forms of corporate workload are unsuitable for mobile. New tools are needed for a mobile-first universe.
Blue Cedar provides our customers and our partners with an easy button for deploying mobile apps. Our Platform integrates with popular tools and services used in mobile app delivery flow, including GitHub, GitLab, Microsoft Endpoint Manager, BlackBerry UEM, Google Firebase, Digital.ai, Google Play, the Apple Custom Store and others. Additional integrations are in the works. The Platform also includes a battle-hardened no-code integration service that adapts mobile apps to customers’ operating environments without requiring source code access or the need to write code.
Fortune 500 companies, governments and independent software vendors use Blue Cedar to solve the mobile app deployment challenge by orchestrating all release activities from security scanning to app distribution in unified deployment pipelines.
