Ship Enterprise Apps Faster with Ionic’s Enterprise SDK

One of the biggest hurdles for any successful app development project is time. Deadlines remain tight and there never seems to be enough engineers to get the work done. But in today’s fast-paced business landscape, it’s critical to remain agile, adjusting the product roadmap rapidly to meet market demands and stay ahead of the competition. 

So how can your development teams build and deliver secure, high-performing apps across platforms? And do so with pace? Enter Ionic’s Enterprise SDK, a game-changer for accelerating enterprise app development and time-to-market.

Speed meets security

Nothing delays product launches quite like building the same thing twice. Juggling multiple codebases and reinventing the same wheels project after project only compounds the issue. That’s why the Enterprise SDK provides a single, cross-platform solution for building robust apps for iOS, Android, and the web. By removing the need to write separate code for each platform, development time is quite literally cut in half.

Marvin M., an Enterprise Architect in the healthcare industry, sums it up nicely when he says, “We find building enterprise and industry-focused apps with Ionic to be cheaper and faster than having to hire and maintain three separate development teams.”

However, speed shouldn’t mean compromised security. After all, enterprise apps require top-notch protection. So, Enterprise SDK comes equipped with a comprehensive security suite, including:

  • Auth Connect: Streamline user authentication with mobile single sign-on (SSO) and the latest native security protocols.
  • Identity Vault: Lock down sensitive data with advanced biometric protections.
  • Secure Storage: Keep data safe offline with a secure, cross-platform local database system.

These pre-built solutions are supported and managed by Ionic to remain up to date with the latest industry security best practices. They save developers time and ensure robust data protection by eliminating the need to build complex security features from scratch. Instead, developers can rest easy knowing that their data is secure, so they can focus on building their app’s key features.

Accelerated development

The Enterprise SDK doesn’t stop at security, it comes out-of-the-box with a mobile UI toolkit ensuring teams aren’t bogged down with the nuances of design systems. Instead they get a library of adaptive, mobile-ready components that look and feel at home on any user’s device.

The SDK also tackles another engineering heavy hitter – native integrations. Plug-and-play solutions are available to tap into native device features, such as camera, filesystem, preferences and storage, when they’re needed. This removes the need to build complex code around interfacing with the device-level APIs.

However, you can’t just build the app. You need to get it in the hands of users. So, the SDK’s mobile DevOps arm simplifies the process of delivering the app to the respective app stores for download. By offering services to build and sign the native binaries required by Apple’s App Store and Google’s Play Store, teams can leverage their existing version control system to keep up-to-date builds flowing to the appropriate development and production environments.

Solutions at each phase of the mobile development lifecycle are what businesses like Kristofer P.’s point to as the “… technology [they] rely on!”

The reliability doesn’t end with the software. It continues with the support and advisory services included within the Enterprise SDK. Experts are available to assist your development teams when they need it. Stuck on a bug? Need help keeping pace with framework and package changes? Industry leading support specialists can work with your team to ensure they meet their critical development goals and remain proactive in app and data security.

Jedidiah W., CEO of the leading mobile app development consultancy OpenForge, has seen the value of Ionic’s enterprise support service first-hand. He says, “we work with a ton of enterprise customers and every single one loves Ionic’s support structure.”

Outpace the competition

With Ionic’s Enterprise SDK at your disposal, expect your development time to reduce by weeks, if not months. With its focus on speed, security, and developer productivity, it empowers enterprise teams to build and deliver exceptional apps that drive business growth.
