Once your app goes live in the app store you will have just entered into an iterative cycle of updates, improvements, and releases. Each successively building on features (and defects) from previous versions. IBM MobileFirst Foundation gives you the tools you need to manage every aspect of this cycle, so you can deliver the best possible product to your end user. In this session, we’ll cover the process of integrating a native iOS application with IBM MobileFirst Foundation to leverage all of the capabilities the platform has to offer. If you’ve heard about that Apple & IBM partnership, you’ll want to attend this session to learn how it all works.

Attendees will learn how to setup MobileFirst Platform Foundation server using the command line tools, how to integrate both Objective-C and Swift code projects to the MobileFirst Foundation Server, and how to leverage and consume data adaptors, how to implement remote logging, and how to leverage MobileFirst analytics to monitor everything happening within the application.
