With more adoption to Mobile applications there are various challenges the enterprises will face

MLIIT develops Enterprise Mobile Applications with look and feel similar to Native applications
The Enterprise Mobile Application development tools like Sybase Unwired Platform ( SUP ) and Flash Builder from Adobe uses frame work like Hybrid Web Container to develop and deploy mobile applications without any need to write application code and can usually run on multiple devices and platforms, these tools uses the device web browser to display the applications.
Though this approach is faster and cheaper this comes with huge performance issues. The solution for overcoming this is by using SUP / Flash Builder to model and manage the data but the user interface is coded and managed outside these tools in device specific native code like Xcode for iPhone/iPad and C# for windows mobile devices and so on.
MLIIT specializes and has expertise in designing applications modeled in SUP and then developing the user interfaces in the native device this would help the user interface experience very much close to any other commercial applications on the device. Developing the user interface natively also helps in using the API and user interface elements specific for the devices like Camera, GPS, Accelerometer controls , building Universal Applications capable of running both on phone and tablet and so on.
