Good Technology, a secure mobility solution, has announced the Good Dynamics Shared Services Framework, the first open mobile API set aiming to transform the enterprise mobile user experience.
The framework enables the development of streamlined, intuitive apps that span entire business workflows. In addition to the Shared Services Framework, Good Technology has announced the first fifteen partners who have built on the platform, including Accellion, Acronis, HP Autonomy, Breezy, Byte Squared, Branchfire, Colligo, DocuSign, EMC, Good.iWare, harmon.ie, ISEC7, MSI Communications, Shafer Systems and Thursby.
The Good Dynamics Shared Services Framework allows developers have more tools to code, and reuse code, to help them deliver the right workflow on iOS and Android mobile devices. It is the only secure mobility platform for development of container-based apps that allow secure data and document sharing, and sharing of features, between apps and containers. Users are able to initiate entire business workflows, from within one app, using available features from another app, such as printing, note creation, emailing, instant messaging, file and web sharing capabilities.
Jared Hansen, CEO at Breezy, said: "The Shared Services Framework is a great addition to an already strong platform. Printing is a core requirement for many productivity apps and we are now able to deliver a seamless, in-app print button for any Good Dynamics-secured app, whether a commercial or custom developed one. The ability to publish services for inter-app connectivity is crucial to streamlining mobile workflows, and we're excited to be among the first to adopt it."
The Good Dynamics Shared Services Framework hopes to let developers easily embed shared app capabilities directly into their apps, providing a better user experience and increasing in-app time, whilst ensuring security. Developers can also increase adoption of their apps by using the framework to publish unique services, such as connectors to popular CRMs, for other apps to rely upon.
Christy Wyatt, CEO of Good Technology, commented on the new service: "Mobile devices are not just another type of endpoint. Mobility is changing our expectations and our behaviour. The Good Dynamics Shared Services Framework redefines the mobile experience empowering users with faster, more intuitive workflows than those on a PC. By allowing developers to leverage an open framework to share their app's services, everyone benefits. Developers will set the stage for the next decade and deliver innovation of which the market is ready to take advantage."
