Pivotal, the company at the intersection of big data, PaaS, and agile development, today announced an expansion of services to its enterprise platform-as-a-service (PaaS), Pivotal CF, through the availability of Pivotal CF Mobile Services. The new enterprise-grade services for Pivotal CF give developers and cloud operators a set of advanced mobile capabilities that work with previously announced data services to enable developer self-service productivity and operational efficiency required to build and deploy next-generation applications faster.

With over a billion smartphones in use[1] and 90% of consumers keeping their phones within arm's reach all the time[2], enterprises are racing to deliver compelling mobile app experiences and capitalize on the massive data exhaust of mobile devices. Pivotal brings years of experience in mobile and big data to Pivotal CF, providing a platform for enterprises to rapidly and continuously deliver scalable, responsive mobile apps that can leverage large volumes and varieties of data.

PaaS is critical for mobile. With mobile devices and operating systems cycling at a rate of less than a year, enterprises need a platform to handle the rapid iterations, instant scaling, and built-for-cloud architectures. Pivotal CF is the ideal solution to give enterprises the speed for continuous delivery and scale while Pivotal CF Mobile Services gives companies a solution where data remains under their control – and not in the hands of third parties – for improved compliance with IT policies and service level agreements, and easier backend system integration.

Informed by the experience of Xtreme Labs (acquired by Pivotal in 2013) in building mobile apps for the world's top brands, which are estimated to have been downloaded over 400 million times, Pivotal CF Mobile Services include backend push notifications, API gateway, and data sync that reduce latency, improve user experience, and simplify mobile development. Enterprises now have the services included in Pivotal CF to build mobile apps that match the best consumer experiences:

  • Push Notifications ­ Direct integration with enterprise services behind the firewall, built to scale with full control of data and comprehensive logging and tracking
  • API Gateway ­ Transform legacy backend APIs into mobile device-optimized APIs, significantly improving app performance and user experience
  • Data Sync ­ Mobile-optimized API to access multiple types of data storage makes it easy for developers to incorporate enterprise data into their apps

Pivotal CF Mobile Services are expected to be generally available in 2014. For pricing details, please contact Pivotal.
