Kony Development Cloud

Improve performance while the app is in production. The init app development in planning, the testing stage is not an ideal scenario to use KDC yet.

Oracle Visual Builder Cloud

Visual Builder is very well suited to either extend or augment your other Oracle Cloud or on-premise solutions. For example, you can build a SaaS extension for Oracle HCM with Visual Builder. You can also build a custom worklist app for Oracle or Oracle Process Cloud Service if you don't like the default worklist app.

Pros

Kony Development Cloud

  • Cross-platform mobile development - we used this for developing the app on a native platform (which could be iOS, Android). Kony offers tools that are useful because they decrease costs and increase the speed at which apps are developed. In addition, cross-platform mobile development tools are generally quite simple to use as they are based off of the common languages for scripting, including CSS, HTML, and JavaScript. It has become easy to find resources with the skill set especially because this is based out of common languages.
  • In Kony mobility platform Visualizer makes app development quick and easy. Tons of documentation online.
  • Used Kony to develop an amazing app that serves our customers well. WYSIWYG interface is great for building interfaces quickly. Build and test quickly for many different targets.

Cons

Kony Development Cloud

Alternatives Considered

Kony Development Cloud

We evaluated variety of platforms like Xamarin, Sencha, PhoneGap. When we were initially evaluating Xamarin, it was not Microsoft and so the releases and features were not very streamlined. Also licensing was a issue with that.Sencha was a very attractive cross mobile platform but was expensive. Just for handful of developers price was high. Ours is big enterprise so licensing costs became huge.PhoneGap is based out of open source Apache Cordova project and is completely free to use, which goes some way to explain its popularity. The enterprise version boasts marketing features via Adobe’s Marketing Cloud, so when it launches it will probably be monetized.Comparing with the features platform has to offer and the price tag attached to it, we narrowed down to using Kony.

Return on Investment

Kony Development Cloud

  • Positive on ROI. I'm constantly utilizing Kony since it's a robust tool capable of publishing.
  • It also shares prototype creations of apps in a highly intuitive and customizable environment. It provides a preview of apps in real-time. Collaboration is seamless. Important functionality includes smartphone features (without any written code involved) and accessibility to a browser, maps, and SMS.
  • Trying to understand the user manual can be challenging since there are way too many features available. All of them aren't really necessary for beginners. And they've yet to offer them in a "phased" approach.
