Deutsche Telekom launches mobile app cloud service

Deutsche Telekom has MobileFirst platform in the cloud to small and medium sized (SMB) customers in Europe.

Deutsche Telekom’s developer platform – Developer Garden – has launched the new cloud service which allows developers to cost-effectively and quickly create apps for all mobile platforms and bring them to market faster than ever before.

As mobile apps proliferate, the cloud has emerged as a key enabler of this growth. Cloud delivery of mobile apps accelerates time to value and speed to market, making availability of new capabilities instantaneous.

By offering IBM Worklight on the Deutsche Telekom cloud via Developer Garden, SMBs that traditionally may not have the resources to obtain enterprise-grade mobile tools will now be able to easily consume these technologies as a service without long term investment or planning.

The new service combines the strengths of Deutsche Telekom’s Developer Garden with Worklight, IBM’s app development platform, to provide organizations with instant access to Deutsche Telekom’s Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and communication services and expertise.

Developer Garden users will be able to quickly access IBM Worklight capabilities to efficiently develop, run and manage HTML5, hybrid and native apps that combine Deutsche Telekom’s communication features such as speech-driven Interactive Voice Response (IVR), voice mashups and Short Message Service (SMS).

“The collaboration between IBM and Deutsche Telekom Developer Garden enables us to offer new business models in the area of mobile app development and to unlock new value for our customers,” said Rainer Deutschmann, senior vice president, Core Telco Products of Deutsche Telekom.

“In addition, the data will be securely hosted on Deutsche Telekom’s servers in Germany and thus be subject to the strict German data protection provisions adding a layer of security and assurance to developers and enterprises working in the cloud,” added Deutschmann.

“The partnership with Developer Garden at Deutsche Telekom will enable us to offer IBM Worklight on their cloud to a whole new market in Europe,” said Marie Wieck, general manager, IBM Application & Integration Middleware.
