Netbiscuits, the global leader in software solutions for adaptive web development, today announced innovations that will enable enterprises to reduce the cost, time and risk of creating responsive, touch-enabled web mobile experiences. Pioneering new features of the cloud-based Netbiscuits Platform will empower organisations to securely develop and deliver engaging web experiences with the latest mobile features customised to each device.
In line with its commitment to help its enterprise customers accelerate the creation and delivery of superior web experiences across the thousands of different devices their users use to access their services, Netbiscuits is launching a series of tools and feature enhancements for the Netbiscuits Platform, including:
- New Application Management API that allows for easy and secure integration of the Netbiscuits Cloud Platform into existing company IT administration and development environments so developers can securely develop, test and monitor mobile web content with enterprise-grade security and tools they already use.
- Netbiscuits Accelerated: a new platform feature that integrates the Netbiscuits Platform natively with world leading Content Delivery Network (CDN) providers. This enables enterprises to take advantage of reduced load times of up to 50% to ensure consumers can access high-quality, complex rich media quickly on their web apps and sites across diverse mobile devices.
- Netbiscuits Livebridge, a new software application empowering enterprise IT teams to securely test their mobile sites on devices in real time through the Netbiscuits platform, from behind their firewall, speeding up web build and change requirements. In addition Livebridge allows companies to deploy secure Intranet content for BYOD employee requirements.
- Updated Integrated Development Environment (IDE) plug-ins, enabling developers to build rich web interfaces across multiple platforms more quickly by using the development environment most familiar to them.
By utilising the new Netbiscuits Platform features and delivering faster response times and feature-rich intuitive interfaces for their mobile web apps and sites in a risk-free way, enterprises will be able to increase engagement with their customers, driving customer loyalty and interest in their brand.
“Netbiscuits Accelerated allows us to manage the known and unknown spikes in traffic by caching customized mark-up code for multiple devices on the edge of the network,” said Joe Lalley, Vice President of Digital Products, Viacom Media Networks. “This has reduced load time by two seconds, ensuring our users receive an optimal web experience no matter the device or type of content the user is consuming.”
“As the first company to offer solutions for mobile web development and the first provider to offer its services in the cloud, Netbiscuits’ goal is to help enterprises to deliver the best user experiences across their web applications adapted to each device,” added Michael Neidhoefer, CEO at Netbiscuits. “We are seeing increasing demand from our customers to go mobile with their websites, both Internet and Intranet as BYOD (bring your own device) becomes a major enterprise requirement. Our latest solutions demonstrate our commitment to ensuring our customers can meet the needs of their ever more demanding users faster, easier and more securely.”
Netbiscuits Accelerated can reduce content delivery latency time by up to 50 percent, resulting in significant speed enhancements for content interaction to drive engaging user experiences with rich media web apps and sites. For enterprises with high-volume traffic and large-bandwidth-content delivery requirements, peak traffic requirements or a geographically diverse user base, Netbiscuits Accelerated significantly increases delivery speed and reduces load times for the end user.
Netbiscuits Livebridge is a new software application that enables enterprise IT teams to securely test mobile sites by connecting internal workstations through the Netbiscuits Platform. This allows real-time, on-device display of mobile sites during development phases, reducing the risk of unpredictability during deployment. Particularly useful for distributed or remote development teams, Netbiscuits Livebridge supports on-premises development standards even for cloud environments and removes the need to set up web servers or manage an FTP server during development phases.
Additional updates to the Netbiscuits Platform help to strengthen its position as the world’s most comprehensive web development ecosystem. Updated features include developer APIs, IDE plug-ins, integration with social networks, responsive images and image scaling, multi-touch maps and offline applications. This suite of enhancements to the existing Netbiscuits Platform and native integration with leading CDN, CRM, ERP, database management and infrastructure solutions enables customers to reduce development time with Netbiscuits pre-programmed web features and device functionality, to rapidly create even richer web experiences for their end users efficiently and at scale. With the latest Netbiscuits Platform, enterprises can quickly build adaptive web apps and sites and enable touch features for the widest range of mobile browsers, devices and operating systems.
Netbiscuits Platform updates will be available from November 2012.
