Based on its recent analysis of the Mobile Apps Deployment Platform market, Frost & Sullivan recognises Netbiscuits GmbH with the 2011 European Frost & Sullivan Award for New Product Innovation of the year. The company's innovative Mobile Cloud Platform supports developers around the globe in devising next-generation and highly advanced mobile sites and apps.
"At a time when the proliferation of mobile devices has rendered the mobile environment extremely fragmented, the Netbiscuits Mobile Cloud Platform provides an attractive development environment and efficient publishing platform," notes Zeff Ibrahim, Research Analyst of the Technical Insight division of Frost & Sullivan. "The mobile sites and apps built on it are highly customised, personalised and deliver optimal mobile browsing experience."
By leveraging the cloud, the platform promises to be more dynamic and viable, hence escalating business productivity and performance efficiency. That apart, via the cloud, customers have a greater market reach and gain a significant competitive edge.
Netbiscuits' Biscuits building blocks form the crux of the Mobile Cloud Platform. These core elements empower the platform to consolidate all pertinent content from user interface layout and screen display type to other relevant features such as media, advertising, payment, social networking, maps and geo-positioning into one unified format. Hence, it performs rapid content integration and facilitates mobile sites and hybrid app development in a very effective and efficient manner.
"In addition, these dynamic building blocks seamlessly interoperate with the highly prevalent HTML5 technology and form the unique Netbiscuits approach," adds Ibrahim. "This novel approach provides highly advanced user interface features such as multi-touch navigation, floating layers, swiping galleries, dynamic maps, whilst synchronously exploiting the native capabilities embedded within the mobile device."
Another key highlight of the solution is the scalability proficiency it offers to developers. Moreover, the solution supports enhanced reliability due to its underlying cloud-based framework.
"Netbiscuits also enables acceleration through Content Delivery Networks (CDNs), hence countless mobile content types can be compressed, stored and preloaded at the edge of the network," remarks Ibrahim. "In this instance, the mobile content is closer to the end users, irrespective of their actual location and thus induces a faster delivery time."
Notably, the solution empowers the mobile sites built to be platform agnostic. With the wide range of OS currently available, developers can efficiently devise novel mobile sites that are seamlessly interoperable across these mobile environments.
"Presently, Netbiscuits consistently cross-examines their platform with more than 3000 mobile devices in a month to ensure their solution synchronises with the latest developments within the mobile space," concludes Ibrahim. Netbiscuits hosts more than 25,000 mobile sites, processes more than 8.5 billion mobile pages each month and transmits to over 100 million end users across 50 countries."
