Telerik Unveils Icenium


The Industry’s First Integrated Cloud Environment

Web Developers to Leverage Existing Skills to Build Hybrid Apps via a Web Browser


WALTHAM, MA,

, 2012



Telerik
, an end
-
to
-
end provider of s
oftware application,
lifecycle and content management solutions, today
announced the availability of
Icenium
, the
industry’s first

I
ntegrated Cloud Environment (ICE)
,

reinventing
cross
-
platform mobile
development.

Ic
enium combines the pow
er and flexibility of the cloud

with the convenience of a
local development environment
, simplifying developers’ ability to write code seamlessly, with
unparalleled productivity.
With Icenium
,

developers are no longer
tethered to a pl
ace, nor are they
beholden to a single platform


they
are instead free to
code on Mac OS X

or Windows

and t
arget
iOS or Android easily
.

Telerik is advancing mobile app development with a breakthrough
alternative that replaces the outmoded IDE approach and

offers developers the most technologically
advanced tools and modern coding environment.


As the number of platforms and mobile devices

of varying shapes and sizes

continue to
grow
exponentially
, developers are saddled with having to manage multiple devel
opment environments.
With Icenium,

there is no need to download
,

configure and manage
a myriad of SDKs, compilers,
software packages and tools.

By exposing SDKs through a cloud service, Icenium has decoupled
the
coding environment from the platform depende
ncies
,
enabling

developers
to focus on
innovation
, instead of managing
cumbersome,
platform
-
specific
development environments
.


“Icenium is a great pathway for developers creating hybrid apps


those that look and feel native,
are built once, published th
rough app stores and work on multiple platforms,” said J. Gerry Purdy,
Ph.D., principal analyst, MobileTrax LLC. “It’s a cloud
-
based development environment that
provides what developers need as a service to target the most relevant device platforms availa
ble.
Icenium is a great step forward for those who want to get to market quickly and cost
-
effectively
with a great app.”


Icenium enables developers to use their
existing
HTML
5
, CSS and JavaScript skills to create and
deploy
hybrid
applications that
run

na
tive
ly

on Apple

iOS and
Google
Android

mobile platforms
.
They can also easily leverage device APIs, including those for camera, accelerometer and
geolocation


with integrated support for Apache Cordova.



The Icenium development environment allowed us to

take a client’s concept from idea to working
hybrid mobile app in nine days! The best part was we leveraged our existing JavaScript and
HTML5 skills, accessed native device features like the camera, and exceeded expectations by being
able to deploy workin
g versions to both iOS and Android. We’re going to be seeing a lot more
Icenium in
our mobile development efforts,” said
Jeff Monteforte, CIO
,
Access Mobility, Inc.


Helping Mobile Developers Get More Done Faster and Easier

Icenium
’s approach to mobile
app development
combin
es
tools for coding, simulating, debugging,
deploying to devices and publishing apps
and

lever
ages cloud
-
based services. Compared to all other
existing frameworks, which require the

setup and configur
ation of

different development
env
ironments for each platform
,

Icenium

requires zero SDKs, making it

a snap

t
o be up and running
in minutes, because it only requires a web browser.
Developers can now build iOS apps without
owning xCode or a Mac, and Android apps can be built without Eclips
e or the Android SDK
.



A subscription provides developers with the complete toolset comprised of
Icenium Graphite
, an
installed version for PCs, and
Icenium Mist
, the browser
-
based version. The toolset delivers all of

the modern capabilities
that
develope
rs expec
t:

syntax coloring and formatting, real
-
time error
detection, refactoring, code navigation and integrated version control.

Icenium even helps
developers cross the finish line with streamlined app publishing assistance and support, replacing
the ha
ssles associated with publishing apps to the App Store or Google Play.


Capabilities available within the Icenium environment include:



Apache Cordova:

enables developers to leverage their existing skills in HTML, CSS and
JavaScript to build hybrid applicat
ions that run on multiple mobile device platforms.




Icenium LiveSync
:

lets developers review changes made in real
-
time across all connected
devices without having to
waste time
recompil
ing for every change and for each device
.




Icenium Device Simulator
:

e
nables developers to
immediately
see how apps look and behave
across multiple device platforms and form factors before actually deploying to physical devices.




Icenium Ion
:

makes deploying and testing app
s on any Apple iOS device easy
, by eliminating
the
need
for provisioning
. Simply scan the project QR code and in seconds, the app is installed
and running.




Kendo UI Mobile

Integration
:

Telerik’s complete solution for
web and mobile development
,
developers can lever
age its unique adaptive rendering to target multiple phone and tablet
platforms with a single UI codebase.


“By harnessing
the power and flexibility of the cloud
, Icenium is helping developers successfully
keep up with today’s rapidly evolving marketplace.

It delivers

unparalleled productivity an
d
efficiency, letting developers

focus on designing and coding

great apps
,
rather than

managing

multiple environments. Icenium is a game changing solution that gives developers the access and
ability to innovate qui
ckly and easily, without being tethered to a place or specific platform,” noted
Doug Seven, executive vice president of Telerik.
