Tizen Development – Stepping Up to the Game: Arcanys at the 2014 Mobile World Congress

February 24, 20142 min read

The Mobile World Congress is one of this year’s biggest tech events happening on February 24-27, 2014 at the Fira Gran Via in Barcelona, Spain. A few of its keynote speakers are Mark Zuckerberg – CEO and Founder of Facebook, Jan Koum – Cofounder and CEO of WhatsApp, Virginia M. Rometty – Chairman, President and CEO of IBM, and other highly notable tech gurus in the IT industry.

The MWC brings a global pool of mobile industry players with promising innovations that are conceivably the next big thing in mobile technology. One of which is the much buzzed open-source Tizen Mobile OS from Samsung, which will be unveiled at the event. The Tizen OS will rival the Android OS of Google and Apple’s iOS. This open-source OS is positioned to be used for high-end smartphones, making it one of the much-anticipated highlights for MWC.

Pioneering in Tizen Mobile App Development

In line with the Samsung Tizen platform, we at Arcanys have also rolled up our sleeves and developed 6 image processing camera applications built for the Tizen operating system. These mobile apps were among the first Tizen apps ever built in the world, making these developments a milestone for Arcanys. The successes in fulfilling these developments were results of the following factors:

  1. Hiring the Right Team
    After getting the go signal to work on the project, in a span of 1 month, we hired Senior C++ Developers solely dedicated to the project. This ensured high-quality work which indeed paid off in the overall development of the apps.

  2. Provider and Client Compatibility
    The presence of the Arcanys’ client in our Cebu office also made a huge impact in managing the overall project. With teamwork, utilizing the latest agile processes and real-time correspondence, allowed the team to finish the project in a record-breaking 4-month period. This goes to prove that a good working relationship between provider and client results into a match-made-in-outsourcing-heaven.

Arcanys to Present at World Mobile Congress 2014

Among our 6 mobile applications, one will be presented to the 74,000 participants of MWC by Arcanys’s Head of IT Division – Jari Soini. Samsung will also present an app created by us in their MWC booth. To know more about the event, you can visit MWC’s official website.

Moving forward with Tizen

Our proud contribution to the development of this mobile application is a good indicator that there is plenty of room for new players to break into the mobile app industry. These prospects create a lot of excitement at Arcanys’ giving us the motivation to further innovate and develop applications for the fast-growing mobile industry.
