Become a Telerik Platform User

When you log in to Telerik Platform for the first time, you become a Telerik Platform user.


Telerik Platform provides a complete toolset for development of cross-platform mobile apps. You can use the development, analytics, backend, publishing, feedback and project management tools to create, publish and maintain your applications either as an individual or in collaboration with other Telerik Platform users.

As a Telerik Platform user, you are either the Account owner of an account or an account member in one or more accounts. This user setup in Telerik Platform lets you manage and contribute to multiple large-scale development initiatives in the cloud, associated with multiple teams or companies.

As the Account owner or an account member, based on your role and permissions, you can view and access the apps in the account. The app is a container, designed to host the complete set of services required to develop a complex application in Telerik Platform.
