How to Build, Deploy and Run your Movilizer Mobile Solution

Movilizer App Lifecycle

The application lifecycle shows the 3-phase progress to BUILD, DEPLOY and RUN your Movilizer app solution. We continuously work on technical updates and new features to keep your applications up-to-date and future-proof.

Below you find different options Movilizer offers for each phase to create the ideal mobile app solution to your enterprise and field operations. 

PHASE 1: Build it

Process of Building, Updating and Expanding the App

  • MOVILIZE IT YOURSELF: The Movelets are your source code
  • REUSE YOUR SKILLS: Get your programmers up and ready in only 5 days
  • ALL DEVELOPMENT IN YOUR BACK-END: Re-use your software logistics and existing governance

A) Design

Your app will consist of Movelets, designed in the Movelet Designer Tool:

  • Empowers business users to translate future requirements into the app
  • Ensures that IT responsibles get the right understanding of these requirements
  • Shares work-in-progress and mobile app versions: the app is a result of collaboration

B) Develop

The Movelets are built in your back-end and are cross-platform enabled:

  • Reuse existing skills and knowledge
  • Choose your preferred programming language
  • Use your preferred development environment
  • Create an own IP for each user
  • All development in 1 place: your back-end

C) Test

We provide state-of-the-art testing procedure of the application, platform, devices and their connection:

  • Optimized automated testing
  • Stress testing
  • On-device debugging
  • Multi-platform performance testing

We support 3 types of mobile architecture

Your business requirements will define how you want your mobile apps to integrate with your business. With the Movilizer Platform you can mix architectures to get the best solution:

  • HTML5/web browser - web pages are built in the back-end and rendered on the mobile device
  • Data Centric apps - relevant data is replicated via middleware and consumed by a thick mobile app
  • Template apps - process flows are templates in your back-end and interpreted by a thin mobile app
Mobile architecture: HTML5 - data centric - template
