BlackBerry Dynamics SDK and Shared Services
Up to 80% of the effort in building a mobile app is spent on items that are not core to that app’s function or user experience. Solving issues such as security, backend system access and reliability can sap developer resources and delay project timelines. By utilizing the BlackBerry Dynamics SDK (formerly known as Good Dynamics SDK) developers can focus on the unique value of their apps while conforming to IT’s security baselines.
The BlackBerry Dynamics Shared Services Framework facilitates code reuse and faster app development while the platform’s unique containerization technology ensures all information exchanges are protected with government-grade encryption.
Architecture for Faster App Development
The BlackBerry Dynamics Secure Mobility platform provides a clean three-layer architecture to separate apps from underlying infrastructure. IT can easily set policies, choose authentication mechanism and manage app security and deployment while developers focus on the unique value of their app. APIs and Shared Services provide the glue to tie together these two domains. By building on the BlackBerry Dynamics Platform, IT and AppDev no longer need to step on each other’s toes, speeding app development and reducing the friction that stalls many mobile initiatives.
By utilizing the BlackBerry Dynamics SDK, developers no longer have to build their own security for their apps. The platform provides out-of-the-box encryption, app-level security and compliance controls, and secure communication with and access to resources behind the firewall. It even allows developers to quickly integrate a wide range of multifactor authentication options without rewriting code. Security inherited from the BlackBerry Dynamics Secure Mobility Platform ensures that developers don’t have to worry about building complex cryptography and enterprise compliance into their apps. Instead of spending valuable developer resources addressing security challenges, developers can quickly protect their data in transit, at rest and even when shared between apps using a proven security model backed by unmatched credentials and accreditations.
Shared Services Framework
The BlackBerry Dynamics Secure Mobility platform provides a wide range of shared services to maximize code reuse and speed time to delivery. Developers can quickly enhance the value of their mobile apps by reusing services (e.g., print, email, transfer, etc.) provided by servers, including in the cloud, and BlackBerry-secured apps. And because the BlackBerry Dynamics Shared Services Framework is part of the BlackBerry Dynamics Secure Mobility Platform, all information exchanges are protected with government-grade encryption.
Developers can build their own services to utilize a SOA-like development pattern on mobile devices. By building their own services they can break down common tasks into reusable components. They can publish services, whether app-based or server-based, to the BlackBerry Developer Network and enable thousands of ISV and in-house developers to use your services to enhance their commercially available or in-house custom built apps.
Integrates With Your Developer Tool of Choice
The BlackBerry Dynamics Platform is flexible enough to work with nearly any tool, development environment or methodology a development team may choose. No matter if apps will be developed using HTML5, native app development or hybrid models, an SDK for the BlackBerry Dynamics Platform is available.
