Build one application
using one cross-platform Java API,
and deploy to all platforms.

Mobile Java Made Easy

Gluon is painless and productive enterprise mobile development. We focus on two critical mobile development problems:

1. Development happens in mobile silos, requiring developers to write and maintain separate code-bases.

2. Mobile applications require synchronization to connect your users to your web services.

Gluon offers professional solutions for these problems, which you can leverage to accelerate your application development.

Our products and services have been recognised as best-of-breed by Oracle two years running in the annual Dukes Choice Awards.

Create iOS & Android Apps in Java.

Harness your Java knowledge to build one application using one set of cross-platform APIs, and deploy to all platforms privately, or via the various App Stores. Using Gluon, you can massively improve time-to-market for your apps.

Mobile Synchronization & Cloud Integration

Gluon CloudLink enables enterprise and mobile developers to easily connect their disparate services and applications together, enabling bi-directional communications between mobile apps, enterprise infrastructure, and cloud systems.

The functionality offered by Gluon CloudLink allows developers to focus on their business-specific functionality, as it removes the need for boilerplate code, both on the client side as well as on the server side. Gluon CloudLink allows for a secure and authenticated end-to-end communication between mobile devices and enterprise systems, in a scalable and robust way.
