Telerik announced the latest advancements to Kendo UI, its HTML5 and JavaScript framework. With mainstream adoption of HTML5, Telerik is focusing on tools to help enterprises, mid-size and small businesses alike smooth the transition to modern line-of-business apps with advanced usability on mobile devices and browsers. New Kendo UI features include PivotGrid and Gantt widgets, even more professional-grade charts and official support for AngularJS.

“We don’t just want to create apps, we want to create apps that are adopted and critical to our business,” said Long Le, Principle App/Dev Architect, CBRE, the world’s largest commercial real estate services firm. “They must be functional across form factors and have an easy user interface. Telerik has always been at the forefront of UI, and the latest release of Kendo UI with advancements in enterprise-level features, is no exception. Telerik tools produce a better end result in less time, and that’s a big win for us any way you cut it.”

HTML5 has hit the mainstream and is the web and mobile technology of choice for developers and enterprises, alike. Organizations wanting standout websites and modern mobile applications seek powerful tools that provide rich data management, visualization capabilities and touch features. The latest release of Telerik Kendo UI offers businesses UI capabilities for every desktop and device, with seven new components and features, including:

  • Support for AngularJS available in all versions of Kendo UI
  • PivotGrid and Gantt widgets

“HTML5 and JavaScript UI frameworks have made a major impact on businesses of all types and sizes. Companies are increasingly challenged with building applications and sites that reach many screens, and the web remains one of the best ways to build and deliver those apps,” said Todd Anglin, EVP, Product Strategy, Telerik. At the same time, they look to not only create new apps, but also modernize existing line-of-business apps to be just as useful on touch-heavy mobile devices as they are in the keyboard and mouse-driven browser. The latest release of Kendo UI continues to address these challenges by providing increasingly powerful enterprise UI that effortlessly translates to every screen and device.”
