Multi-Platform Apps: Designing for the Unknown
How does one design and develop software applications for the unknown? It’s a question that Intel IT is currently answering.
Today, development efforts are geared toward specific platforms and operating systems, specific devices and their interfaces. But what if these specificities are removed from the equation? How can applications be developed so they work on any platform, any operating system, any device, even ones that have yet to be conceived?
“The way we develop applications two years from now will be radically different from the way they were developed two years ago,” says Don Meyers, enterprise architecture manager for Intel IT. “With so many platforms, devices, and interfaces, and more on the way, current development efforts are becoming unsustainable.”
