The dramatic influx of mobile application development has driven many new innovations that make it easier than ever to create compelling, flexible, and secure applications. This two-part series details my work done at Red Hat’s Open Innovation Labs to capture these mobile innovations in a useful, repeatable way. In part one of this two-part series, I break down the steps to create and unit test a native android application using Red Hat’s Mobile Application Platform. In part two, I show how Jenkins can be used to automate continuous integration and unit testing of that Mobile app.

Containers signify a new era of IT transformation — one that increasingly demands speed, agility, and transparency. But the path to realize the full value of containers can be complex because their implications are more than technical. Their inclusion impacts how people, across many different functions, may have traditionally understood their roles, and what they did in their roles (process).

Custom software development and business automation have traditionally been two distinct ways to approach IT solutions to business challenges. Each approach has its own tradeoffs. While software development draws from engineering rigor, historically, the processes have been slow. Conversely, while business automation has enabled non-engineering stakeholders to codify business logic, this has led to additional risk.
