Science Applications International Corp. has formed an alliance with Motorola Solutions Inc. focused on changing the way government employees use mobile.
Through a software-as-a-service approach, the alliance between the two creates a new way for agencies to buy, build and manage mobile solutions, Motorola said.
In order to do this, SAIC will work with Motorola’s RhoMobile Suite to offer open architecture and secure mobile applications and solutions to its government and enterprise users while also delivering mobile services to 1.5 million potential IT customers, Motorola said.
Motorola’s RhoMobile Suite will help SAIC’s Integrated Services Management Center provide application development and application management services.
Of the RhoMobile Suite, Motorola said that it is a cross-platform framework that allows developers to write an application once, and have it look and act the same on every device, regardless of the operating system of the device that is using it.
