Is Your Company Ready for the Upcoming App Explosion?

Posted: February 22nd, 2016Author:

It’s fair to say that we are about to experience a significant app explosion in the enterprise, and most organizations won’t be ready for it. According to Gartner the average enterprise will develop 1400 mobile apps by 2024!  Since most of these apps will be custom, the total number of apps will be in the millions, dwarfing the explosion we’ve experienced in consumer apps over the last few years.   Most IT leaders are already feeling pressured from the businesses and if you haven’t yet, you’re about to….

In this podcast and post, I explain the reasons for this explosion and what enterprises should do to be ready. Review Appery.io’s infographic or download Apperian’s Enterprise Mobile App Trends Report to learn more.

More flexible ways to distribute your apps, securely

Posted: January 6th, 2016Author:

This is guest post from our partner Apperian, by Tiffany Early, Managing Editor, The MAM® Blog

As an enterprise app developer, do you struggle with distribution of your apps for either usability testing or final delivery? How do your customers then get apps to their end users?

Security Risks with Public App Stores

The public app stores – iTunes, Google Play – just don’t work for distributing enterprise apps, since your apps can get lost in the millions of consumer apps, be confused with public versions, or be exposed to major security risks.

Headaches of Self-Hosting

Self-hosting and emailing direct download links, portals, shared drives, FTPs, etc. are difficult to maintain and increase your administrative overhead. You have to build security measures into the app before it’s compiled, and there’s no support for the ongoing application lifecycle management of onboarding, inspecting, securing, signing, and deploying mobile apps.

5 New Ways to Securely Distribute Enterprise Apps

Using a mobile application management platform for app lifecycle management and security, you onboard, sign, and wrap your apps with security, analytic, and other management policies. These policy-enabled “managed apps” are then ready to be distributed to your customers in a variety of ways, without requiring access to or control of their devices.

300,000 Developers Strong and Growing – A look back at 2015

Posted: December 14th, 2015Author:

As the end of the year approaches, I wanted to reflect on what we accomplished together.  It was great year for enterprise mobility and we’re proud to have led the charge, raising the bar for cross device applications.  We’re confident that our platform will build upon the success we experienced in 2015 and continue to be the top choice for developers creating powerful apps across all device types and screen sizes. We can’t wait to see what’s to come in 2016!

Let’s take a look back at some of the highlights from 2015:

  • We just announced that the Appery.io platform has surpassed 300,000 developers. The growth of Appery.io is a testament to the company’s commitment to product development, performance and to its customers. Unlike its competitors, Appery.io appeals to both enterprise IT and “citizen developers” in the lines of business. This is further proof to the value of an agile cloud-based, end-to-end platform.
  • Last month, we announced our new Automatic App Update capability, which enables developers to update an application without having to resubmit it to app stores. Prior to this advancement, developers were required to wait up to two weeks for their updated apps to be approved and available on the app store, even longer if initially rejected. Now, after initial submission, updates are made automatically.
  • In July 2015, we announced integration with Ionic SDK and Appery.io. This enabled developers to build hybrid HTML5 mobile apps with the same user experience of a native application, accelerating time to market, and nearly eliminating the need to build expensive, fully native apps in the enterprise.
  • In June we acquired Verivo Software’s major assets further cemented Appery.io’s position as a leading app development platform for the enterprise with an end-to-end solution that is agile and meets the needs of both IT and the lines of business within the enterprise.

Next year promises to be an exciting time for enterprises looking to go mobile and it’s important for them to choose a platform that is backed by a large developer community. Our team is constantly looking ahead to where the industry is going and how we can best equip our customers to compete. Stay tuned for our continued updates.

Exadel Announces New Deployment Options for Appery.io to enable Enterprises to Embrace the Mobile Mind Shift

Posted: May 5th, 2014Author:

Although enterprises are adopting cloud services at a rapid pace, there are still situations where companies prefer a private deployment of our platform.  For them, we have good news.  Appery.io can now be deployed on the customer premises managed by the customer; privately in our cloud, managed by us; or as usual, in our secure, multi-tenant public cloud.   We are also supporting hybrid approaches where a portion of our platform is deployed behind the firewall where it can more easily integrate with enterprise data.  With today’s news, all enterprises can now accelerate mobile innovation with Appery.io, regardless of the preferred deployment model.

We couldn’t think of a better place to announce this news than here at the Forrester Forum for Technology Management Leaders, where we have partnered with Forrester to exclusively pre-release their book  “The Mobile Mind Shift: Engineer Your Business to Win in the Mobile Moment.
