Mobile App Development: Getting Your Standalone App to Interface with Your IBM i

Need to interface a mobile app with your IBM i? A number of IBM i integration patterns can be leveraged to keep mobile apps in sync with enterprise systems.

Written by Glenn Johnson

Your IBM i system holds a lot of very useful data that can be leveraged for mobile apps. However, you need the right tools and methods to extract the data in the most effective way. This is where an integration platform comes in.

The purpose of system integration is to ensure smooth-running business processes across multiple systems. To do this, an IT department needs to be armed with integration and business process management tools that can recognize all of the needed integration patterns for your environment.

Therefore, IBM i users should look for mobile app development solutions that support nine familiar IBM i integration touchpoints.
