VMware to Work With Oracle to Use ACE Best Practices for Oracle Mobile Cloud Service

Oracle Mobile Cloud Service to Be Compatible With ACE (App Configuration for Enterprise)

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - October 27, 2015) - ORACLE OPENWORLD -- Today at Oracle OpenWorld, VMware (NYSE: VMW) announced Oracle will use ACE (App Configuration for Enterprise) best practices to help deliver secure enterprise applications to mobile devices. The Oracle Mobile Cloud Service, which includes the Mobile Application Framework, will be compatible with the ACE approach.

ACE is an enterprise mobility management (EMM)-neutral community focused on providing education and best practices around native operating system capabilities to drive a more consistent, open and simple way to configure and secure mobile apps and drive mobile adoption in business. AirWatch® is one of the founding companies of ACE.

Oracle Mobile Cloud Service is an enterprise-quality Mobile Backend as a Service (MBaaS), and provides easy to use tools for business professionals to analyze and mine data about usage of the MBaaS. It simplifies and secures the process of connecting mobile applications to enterprise systems and other cloud services.

Oracle Mobile Application Framework is a hybrid framework that enables developers to rapidly develop single-source applications for both Apple iOS and Google Android operating systems. Oracle Mobile Application Framework leverages Java, HTML5 and JavaScript to deliver a complete mobile framework with declarative user interface definition, device features integration and built-in security. Oracle Mobile Application Framework provides a visual and declarative development experience and maximizes code reuse resulting in faster development of mobile applications.

Adoption of ACE best practices is intended for a future release of Oracle Mobile Application Framework.
