Business Challenge


Providing mobile access (smart phones and tablets) to your existing portfolio of applications has rapidly become a necessity if you wish to support the demands of both your customers and your employees. Increasing numbers of people do all their business through their devices. PCs take too long to boot and aren’t as portable. Despite the requirement, many businesses find it a challenging, time-consuming and expensive proposition and thus, have done little to provide mobile applications. No one has the ability to create custom applications for each of the various mobile platforms and yet, to many, this looks like the only option.


Competitive pressure requires that companies find a way to support a wide variety of mobile OS’ and devices. Mobile is only getting bigger.




Many companies host critical business services on IBM hardware from IBM i to IBM z, often with a variety of backend technologies and code generators such as Websphere, Java, .NET, COBOL, RPG, CA 2E(Synon), and CA Plex. CM First leads the way in creating custom solutions for IBM and CA customers to help them ‘mobilize’ legacy applications with a single code base. Not only is this simpler to write, it is easier to maintain.
