Developer Awards – The Best Kind

Anyone who has dipped their toe in the enterprise mobility space realizes how quickly the technologies, approaches, frameworks and goals change. One day it’s choosing an MDM to lock down devices while the next could be focusing on the battle between hybrid, mobile and responsive development. Add to the mix an alphabet soup of acronyms (MAM, MEAP, MADP, MAP, MBaaS, RMAD) and what should be an exercise in creating secure, easy to use apps can quickly become an adventure in banging one’s head against a cubicle wall.

Red Hat Innovation Lab takes off in Ireland with a mobile focus

The EMEA Open Innovation Lab will be running the first EMEA Lab in the Red Hat Waterford office from January 30th to February 3rd with a focus on driving innovation through mobile.
The Red Hat Consulting team and other Red Hat staff from the Irish operation are pleased to be welcoming EasiER AG to the Lab as their innovation customer. A startup, based in Zurich, Switzerland, EasiER AG has launched an innovative product in the medical space aimed at increasing the efficiency of Emergency Room operations (hence the Easi – E-R), though the application of technology. They now are embarking on creating a mobile solution that leverages the power of mobile and ER systems to optimize the triage process as patients access emergency room services. As any of us know, waiting periods in emergency rooms can lead to detrimental patient outcomes, resource constraints on beds, equipment and staff, not to mention poor hospital reputation and public perception.
 
The Innovation Lab engagement will run for 4 weeks, the first week taking place in Waterford and the remaining 3 weeks being run remotely. The Lab team will consist of members flying in from Sweden, France, UK and the US and will be made up of developers as well as business and IT.  Developers will be doing peer development with the Labs team during the engagement, working on the design and concepts behind building mobile apps on the Red Hat Mobile Application Platform.
The charter of Open Innovation Labs is to help customers overcome challenges and accelerate app development through the latest advancements in software delivery. This lab will provide hands-on skills, mentoring, and tools to help the customer get up and running with their first mobile app.

Handling an Avalanche of Beer Apps

When FeedHenry was acquired by Red Hat a few years ago it was a very exciting time for our team. Something that was little more than an idea in 2010 had turned into a very impressive tech stack that managed to combine mobile and Node.js – two very hot technologies. Nearly two years later we are firmly integrated within Red Hat, the product has been rebranded as Red Hat Mobile Application Platform, and we are now recognized as a visionary in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Mobile Application Development Platforms (MADP).
