While most mobile computing devices are still considered to be "toys," it's pretty clear that the amount of processing power that will be resident in these devices by this time next year is going to be quite substantial. That means that the classes of applications that will run on these devices will not only be more robust, they will also probably be a lot more complex in terms of the amount of business logic that needs to be accessed and integrated.
The challenge with building mobile computing development applications is that no one can be sure how much these applications will need to scale. If they are built on a SQL database, chances are high there will be performance issues as the number of users increase. In addition, as tablet devices become more prevalent, the sophistication of mobile computing applications will be expected to increase.
Because Wakanda natively understands the business logic on the server side, Hollande says building sophisticated mobile computing applications becomes a lot simpler, especially when they can take advantage of NoSQL database platforms.
If your organization starts building a mobile computing application today, you need to make some assumptions about what the capabilities of the devices will be a year from now. Increasingly, that's starting to look like a powerful set of platforms for unifying access to all manner of business processes under a common user interface, which means many IT organizations are going to need access to a development framework for creating those types of applications starting today.
