Today, business success hinges on mobility and providing end users a superior digital experience. Hype in the media and on social challenges around the state of mobility has everyone thinking about what the future holds. Further, the adoption of new mobile technologies such as the Internet of Things and wearables will be challenging, to say the least; developing solutions to address those challenges is top of mind.
Telerik, a Progress company, recently surveyed 3,000 IT professionals to assess the adoption, trends and perceptions around mobile development. This survey cuts through the hype to uncover the truth about the current state of mobility.

Hearing a lot of buzz on all that’s going on in the .NET space with ASP.NET 5 and MVC 6? Microsoft is releasing a revolutionary version of the .NET framework, which makes some ASP.NET developers uncertain stepping into 2015.
At Progress, we're excited about the upcoming changes and would like to explain why we believe this is one of the best times to be an ASP.NET developer.
Here are some of the burning questions we’ll address:
Telerik surveyed 2,200 developers and IT executives between July 15 and August 1, 2014 to determine the “App Development State of the Union.” The survey’s objective was to determine priorities and pain points surrounding application development—from desktop to mobile—as well as examine developer preferences, methodologies and approaches.
Three findings stand out clearly. First, while mobile is an obvious priority to enterprise decision makers, widespread adoption is slower than anticipated, while desktop and web remain focus areas. Second, developers are not widely collecting end-user feedback to optimize the development process. Third, despite being tasked with heavy workloads, the majority of surveyed developers are not leveraging currently available technologies, such as cross-platform and multi-platform solutions to maximize productivity.
Investing in third party ASP.NET toolsets is well worth it, but only if you find the best toolset for your project. But what characteristics should you be looking for, and how do you make a thorough—but fast—evaluation?
To help, we created a checklist of factors to consider on your quest for productivity. You can save even more time by using the handy spreadsheet provided at the end. It enables you to quickly rate different solutions on a range of predefined factors.
Selling and Marketing in today's "age of the customer" requires constant delivery of fresh and personalized content through multiple different channels. Organizations are adopting Web Content Management systems to solve this challenge, but the key question is how do you adopt WCM and quickly maximize returns on your entire digital strategy through modern technology.
The report provides a best vs. rest point of view by analyzing survey data from over 200 marketing executives and differentiating the top-performing 25 percent from everyone else.

In this ebook we are addressing the top challenges we’ve seen teams and organization face when scaling Agile. They are related to collaboration, measurements, implementation of best practices, and managing multiple concurrent projects.
We also take a closer look on how the proper tool can help you deal with each of those aspects.
Do you stick to the default ASP.NET controls because you doubt the productivity gains of third-party controls? Telerik Developer Evangelist, Jeff Fritz, gave himself a challenge: build the same application by allocating 30 minutes to working with the default Visual Studio toolset and 30 minutes to Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX. He then compared the results based on how much functionality he implemented and the amount of code he had to write. The productivity gap may surprise you.
Progress surveyed over 4,000 software developers worldwide between September 5 - 26, 2012 regarding their usage, attitudes and expectations surrounding HTML5 and its adoption for development initiatives.
The main objective was to determine adoption patterns of HTML5, separating hype from reality to get an accurate picture of real world use. The survey also attempted to measure the impact of factors such as Facebook’s decision to “go native” or the W3C/WHATWG standards split on overall adoption rates or attitudes towards HTML5 in the next year.

What do the London Olympics of 2012, the U.S. health exchanges today, and a Victoria Secret online fashion show during the Super Ball all have in common? Their web sites and web applications failed miserably under real world user interaction.
The result is site downtime, embarrassment, loss of revenue, and unwanted negative publicity. Why do web sites fail when it is usually vitally important that they remain operational and responsive to users?
This whitepaper offers insights into why these failures occur and what the cost is to the organization. It describes five practices that enable all organizations to better prepare for traffic in response to new applications or marketing initiatives.
To build apps that reach all users, developers must deal with many different operating systems, SDKs, development tools, screen sizes and form factors, as well as a technology landscape that is still in a constant state of flux. And if that were not enough, there are also several different ways to build mobile apps that development teams must sort through before beginning any new mobile effort. There are three primary approaches to building mobile apps today: Web, Hybrid, and Native.
This paper aims to explain the primary differences between these approaches and provide a basic framework for choosing the “right” way to build modern mobile apps.
Telerik provides a set of tools for creating cross-platform mobile applications and additionally exposes a robust set of cloud services for storing data. Icenium provides the environment for developing and deploying the application, the Kendo UI Mobile framework provides the means to structure the application and a set of common user interface components, and Icenium Everlive provides the cloud storage for data via a set of REST services.
This tutorial will demonstrate how to build a simple application using these three tools.
