Leading Multi-Channel Provider Kony Solutions Announces Support for BlackBerry 10

Kony Solutions, Inc., the leading mobile and multi-channel application development platform provider, today announced support for the newly launched BlackBerry® Z10 smartphone, as well as the coming BlackBerry® Q10 smartphone.

“With user adoption of mobile devices exploding, it is more important than ever for organizations to deliver an optimized user experience, with applications that run flawlessly on any device,” said Sam Lakkundi, Kony’s Chief Mobile Officer. “The KonyOne Platform enables companies to target virtually any BlackBerry device as a platform for new apps, to easily port existing apps to BlackBerry 10, and optimize their apps for each new device and user requirement.”

“Kony offers enterprise customers the ability to maintain applications across multiple platforms and devices, and we’re delighted to work with them to support customers with BlackBerry 10," said Derek Peper, Vice President, Enterprise Partnerships at BlackBerry.

“BlackBerry has given the mobile workforce a lot more to think about when it comes to the features and functionality they demand,” Mr. Lakkundi continued. "In today's BYOD-drive mobile market, where BlackBerry was the first enterprise mobility company, the capability of BlackBerry Balance technology is important because it separates personal and business data. This promises to help ease concerns about data security for BYOD, and helps companies empower employees and deliver a seamless user experience, regardless of the device they use.”

Enterprises are striving to become digital businesses for differentiated innovation and customer-centricity. Traditionally, they focused on digitizing processes and paper workflow. To be a disruptor and compete against new players, they need to gain insight into business data and innovate at scale. Cloud and cognitive technologies can help them leverage hidden data in SAP/ERP systems to fuel their businesses to accelerate digital transformation success.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning provides predictive models which a business can apply in countless ways to better understand its customers and operations. Since machine learning was first developed with flat, tabular data in mind, it is still not widely understood: when does it make sense to use graph databases and machine learning in combination? This talk tackles the question from two ends: classifying predictive analytics methods and assessing graph database attributes. It also examines the ongoing lifecycle for machine learning in production. From this analysis it builds a framework for seeing where machine learning on a graph can be advantageous.'
