Mobile SDK: Talk Technical to Me

On the back end of this cool new capability is what’s known as a Software Development Kit (SDK). The SDK is a set of frameworks and tools that allow developers to add code-level customizations to an application's API. Before this update, no one had the capability to customize the Mobile App, and organizations who wanted a custom app had to basically build a mobile-friendly portal from scratch that would integrate with their Sugar instance.

What’s in it for Me?

Organizations can now leverage either their Sugar partner or internal development resources to customize a mobile app for their team. They can create branded applications, customized user experiences, and purpose-built apps for their business processes.
