CONNECT Web Expe­ri­ence (pre­vi­ously CQCON) is a month away, and I’m excited to be attend­ing this event to talk about Deliv­er­ing Man­aged Con­tent to Native Apps.

With the release of AEM 6.0 the abil­ity to lever­age its pow­er­ful web con­tent man­age­ment tools with the cross-platform app devel­op­ment plat­form pro­vided by Phone­gap Enter­prise is now avail­able. The result is the abil­ity for an orga­ni­za­tion to quickly deliver an improved app expe­ri­ence across all their seg­ments at a reduced cost.

In many cases how­ever orga­ni­za­tions with an exist­ing mobile app pres­ence have most likely already spent con­sid­er­able time and money on devel­op­ing native app solu­tions. Over time these native apps start to grow larger and become harder to eas­ily deliver updated con­tent simul­ta­ne­ously across mul­ti­ple plat­forms. Fur­ther­more, more often the mar­ket­ing orga­ni­za­tion demands the abil­ity to deliver the brand mes­sage directly to their mobile prop­er­ties. While these apps may not be in a posi­tion to move com­pletely to the use of web tech­nolo­gies and cross-platform devel­op­ment pro­vided by Phone­gap, the power of AEM apps can still be inte­grated directly into an exist­ing native app.

In my devel­oper focused pre­sen­ta­tion I will cover in detail how con­tent cre­ated with AEM apps can then be included in an exist­ing native app. Start­ing with a native Android project I will show the process of inte­grat­ing AEM gen­er­ated con­tent and high­light how con­tent in the app can be updated with­out any fur­ther native devel­op­ment being required. Finally, I will also demon­strate the abil­ity for AEM con­tent to com­mu­ni­cate with the rest of the native application.

CONNECT WebEx is shap­ing up to be the essen­tial event for any­one work­ing with Adobe Expe­ri­ence Man­ager. I look for­ward to see­ing you all there!
