Kony, Inc., the leading enterprise mobility company, today announced the general availability of Kony MobileFabric™. The platform is the industry’s first solution that unifies a mobile application development platform (MADP), mobile backend as a service (MBaaS), Application Programming Interface (API) management, and platform as-a-service (PaaS) infrastructures under a single, open and standards-based mobile infrastructure platform. Kony MobileFabric dramatically speeds time to market of building enterprise mobile apps, shortens time spent on app development to more than 65 percent, and offers businesses a scalable and future-proof mobile strategy solution.
“Unlike traditional enterprise application development, the name of the game in the world of mobile apps is continuous speed to market, agile responsiveness and a compelling user experience,” said Burley Kawasaki, senior vice president of Products, Kony, Inc. “The challenge that businesses are facing is the level of complexity that comes with enterprise mobile app development. Today our customers have to make difficult choices on which different technology platform to pick that supports their requirements. Kony MobileFabric is the first of its kind to considerably reduce this complexity by delivering an open, standards based, and unified mobile infrastructure platform regardless of their mobile development needs.”
“The demand for high-velocity app deployment will overwhelm infrastructure and operations teams that are not staffed, budgeted, or prepared to handle a rapid scale-up of mobile apps,” wrote Michael Facemire, principal analyst and Jeffrey Hammond, vice president, principal analyst, in a recent Forrester report. “In turn, developers will look for options that light up in hours, scale transparently, and ‘just work.’ As a result, expect further blurring of the BaaS and mobile middleware markets.”1
By converging the most popular development platforms, Kony MobileFabric delivers customers the following benefits:
- Faster Time to Market: Kony MobileFabric removes the complexity and effort spent integrating multiple technologies in a typical enterprise mobile development project, with pre-built back-end services for identity, integration, orchestration, messaging and location services. In addition, it provides offline sync capabilities, along with full platform as-a-service productivity through seamless elastic provisioning, monitoring and analytics. The cloud-based platform ensures there are no delays in setup with instant elastic provisioning of not just back-end services but also the full app platform environment. Since MobileFabric supports the most popular development languages with prebuilt Software Development Kits (SDK), it also allows for instant productivity.
- Lowest Total Cost of Ownership: Kony MobileFabric reduces total cost of ownership by offering IT executives and app developers a single mobile infrastructure that includes MADP, MBaaS and PaaS. This eliminates the need to purchase multiple solutions, which will result in huge savings for businesses. In addition, Kony MobileFabric reduces up-front integration costs of linking multiple infrastructures, as well as dramatic savings in on-going maintenance and support through seamless and integrated management and monitoring of mobile infrastructures.
“As a global Kony integration partner, UST Global is excited to be involved with the Kony MobileFabric launch,” said Tony Velleca, chief information officer, UST Global. “Not only does it further solidify Kony’s position as a mobile market leader, more importantly, it meets a critical need of UST’s customers to securely connect any new or legacy app to any back office system through a secure and open cloud framework, while also speeding the process of delivering great mobile apps to market. UST Global has already begun developing and connecting apps on Kony’s MobileFabric platform and we look forward to partnering with Kony in bringing this new capability to the marketplace.”
With the initial release, 350 MobileFabric apps were published and more than 400 MobileFabric clouds have been created in the last 90 days to support customers and partners who are developing cloud-based mobile applications. Kony MobileFabric builds upon Kony’s investment in core foundational hosting, integration, data sync and messaging technologies that have securely handled over a billion transactions and tested in hundreds of enterprises globally.
Pricing and Availability
Kony MobileFabric is available now and will be sold direct and through Kony’s channel partners. Kony is offering a free 90-day trial of the new platform to enterprises interested in taking this next step in their mobility strategy. Kony MobileFabric is the first mobile development platform to adopt a simplified pricing model that removes the complexity from licensing mobile infrastructure. The clear and predictable pricing is based on a per-user or per-session model.
Additionally, Kony will extend its unique 30-day service level agreement offer to Kony MobileFabric. This means that as new OS platforms are updated – like Apple’s iOS 8 or Android L – that Kony will guarantee support within 30 days for all generally available releases.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
