The Volt client application allows enterprises to authenticate their employees' mobile devices from the cloud-based Antenna Mobility Platform from which universal HTML5 applications are provisioned.
Software developers used to have to rewrite their apps for each platform they serve, duplicating their efforts for Apple's iOS, Google's Android, RIM's BlackBerry Playbook and Hewlett-Packard's webOS, but no more. Now, enterprise IT can provide universal HTML5 apps provisioned from cloud-computing resources to serve employees, regardless of platform.
The application community is sidestepping mobile-device vendors' application stores by providing universal HTML5 applications that users can't tell from a normal application.
The "Financial Times" rocked the application community recently by sidestepping mobile-device vendors' application stores by providing universal HTML5 applications that users can't tell from a normal application.
After downloading, the HTML5 application remains in local cache memory even after the user goes offline. When harnessed by enterprise IT, these new universal HTML5 applications can be provisioned and managed using cloud-computing resources.
IT organizations serving their employees with such universal HTML5 applications can harness built-in authentication and security apparatuses that keep data private while simultaneously preventing applications from becoming avenues for intrusions. For instance, Volt from Antenna Software provides cloud-computing resources that manage all the infrastructure details that put enterprise managers in direct control of their employees' HTML5 applications regardless of the mobile device they are using.
