Exadel in the News: LOB Mobile Development

byod Exadel in the News: LOB Mobile Development

We were de­lighted to be men­tioned promi­nently in this ar­ticle about shifts in the con­trol of en­ter­prise mo­bile development:

Mobile Management Spurs Power Shift in the Enterprise — CIO​.com

As dis­cussed in the ar­ticle, Salesforce is using Exadel’s Appery​.io as part of a drive for pro­moting mo­bile de­vel­op­ment out­side of IT in the line-​​of-​​business (LOB) units them­selves. We’re quite proud to be part of this strategy; how­ever, we look at this — not so much as an “over­throw” of a par­tic­ular de­part­ment — but simply as en­abling more op­tions in­side en­ter­prises for mo­bile de­vel­op­ment. In choosing among these op­tions, dif­ferent en­ter­prises will re­quire dif­ferent mixes of IT vs. LOB own­er­ship and of out­sourced vs. in-​​house work based on com­pany re­sources, or­ga­ni­za­tional cul­ture, busi­ness ob­jec­tives, etc.

Because of our breadth of ex­pe­ri­ence in mo­bile de­vel­op­ment, in par­tic­ular, and en­ter­prise de­vel­op­ment, in gen­eral, we can pro­vide a full spec­trum of ser­vices starting at the highest level with mo­bile strategy de­vel­op­ment. Depending on the mo­bile strategy for your com­pany, we can do any­thing from Appery​.io training for LOB units to large projects under the di­rec­tion of IT. (Or, you can just use Appery​.io for mo­bile de­vel­op­ment within an LOB unit.)

Exadel Just Got a Mobile Merit Award for Appery​.io

MobileMerits Winner e1378409923748 186x300 Exadel Just Got a Mobile Merit Award for Appery.io

We won! Mobile Merit Awards rec­og­nizes ex­cel­lence achieved in the global mo­bile in­dustry each year. This year Exadel was rec­og­nized as the winner in the Mobile Services/​Enterprise Product or Service cat­e­gory for our Appery​.io mo­bile app platform.

For a while, we’ve noted the growing gap as the de­mand for mo­bile in­no­va­tion in the en­ter­prise out­strips the ca­pa­bil­i­ties and ca­pacity of IT or­ga­ni­za­tions. Our Appery​.io mo­bile app plat­form is just one ex­ample of how we are closing this gap. We also offer ser­vices to help or­ga­ni­za­tions use Appery​.io and, of course, a full gamut of en­ter­prise soft­ware de­vel­op­ment ser­vices in ad­di­tion to Appery.io-specific services.

Congratulation to our hard-​​working global product de­vel­op­ment team!

3 Enterprise Mobility Concerns: Timing, Integration, Security

As a re­sult of con­ver­sa­tions with our cus­tomers, we can tell that the biggest is­sues in en­ter­prise mo­bility are:

  • Time-​​to-​​market
  • Back-​​end integration
  • Security of mo­bile apps Read more »

Exadel Enterprise MobileSafe

enterprise mobilesafe2 Exadel Enterprise MobileSafe
As pointed out be­fore in our ar­ticle on Exadel Secure Documents, Exadel of­fers a va­riety of “so­lu­tions” that aren’t quite shrink-​​wrapped prod­ucts, but pro­vide a lot of the ben­e­fits of a product. Exadel Enterprise MobileSafe is a soft­ware so­lu­tion from Exadel that solves the gen­eral problem of en­ter­prises al­lowing mo­bile ac­cess to their data while main­taining max­imum se­cu­rity. The so­lu­tion takes ad­van­tage of the flex­i­bility and cross-​​platform na­ture of HTML5 or hy­brid web apps (Cordova/​PhoneGap) to pro­vide se­cure ac­cess on a va­riety of dif­ferent mo­bile plat­forms at a lower cost. With MobileSafe, Exadel sets it up so the ac­cessing apps are down­loaded from your se­cure server into an en­crypted (AES-​​256) cache on the client de­vices for full se­cu­rity. Read more »

Exadel Secure Documents

secure document3 Exadel Secure Documents

Exadel works on a lot of dif­ferent projects, so we are often able to reuse coding and ap­proach to solve sim­ilar prob­lems. We often call these quasi-​​products “so­lu­tions”: not quite off-​​the-​​shelf, but much fur­ther along than starting from scratch. Taking ad­van­tage of such a so­lu­tion still re­quires a project en­gage­ment with us, but the cost and time-​​to-​​market is much lower.

One such so­lu­tion is Exadel Secure Documents. The problem solved is how to make doc­u­ments that may be con­tained in many dif­ferent Enterprise Document Management Systems avail­able out­side the en­ter­prise in a se­cure, uni­fied way. Once set up, the doc­u­ments can then be ac­cessed through Secure Documents ap­pli­ca­tions on dif­ferent client de­vices. Read more »

Exadel at the Wolters Kluwer Tech Conference 2013

ExadelAtWK2013 Exadel at the Wolters Kluwer Tech Conference 2013

Exadel’s Donna Burke, Max Katz, and Fima Katz made the trek to ex­citing Minneapolis, Minnesota to at­tend the Wolters Kluwer Tech Conference 2013, July 22–24. We will be there to talk about our mo­bile work with Wolters Kluwer, our in­stal­lable gateway for using ex­isting data­bases and SOAP ser­vices as REST ser­vices (RESTXpress), our mo­bile app de­vel­op­ment plat­form (Appery​.io), and our so­lu­tions for en­ter­prise mo­bile app se­cu­rity and for uni­fied se­cure ac­cess to en­ter­prise doc­u­ment man­age­ment sys­tems. Of course, we’ll also be there to learn from the ses­sions and other participants.

If you’re there and want to talk to us, Exadel is in booth 3 on the floor. Tuesday af­ter­noon, Donna Burke made a pre­sen­ta­tion (“Are you ready for Mobile?”) on the chal­lenges and op­por­tu­ni­ties of en­ter­prise mo­bi­liza­tion in­cluding ex­am­ples from our work with Wolters Kluwer on mo­bi­liza­tion projects. If you have ques­tions arising from the pre­sen­ta­tion, come by our table and talk to us.

Tiggzi Evolves into Appery​.io

TiggziToApperyio Tiggzi Evolves into Appery.io

As our Tiggzi mo­bile app de­vel­op­ment tool has ex­panded, it’s scope has steadily grown to that of a full mo­bile app plat­form with more and more fea­tures. We thought such a major qual­i­ta­tive change needed to be sig­naled prop­erly, so we’ve launched Appery​.io as the next step for Tiggzi.

We’re looking for­ward to the op­por­tu­nity to spread the word about the new Appery​.io. Our first stop will be the TechCrunch Disrupt NY Conference and Hackathon starting in a few days. If you’re there, find out from Max Katz and Francisco Kattan what the new Appery​.io is all about.

REST4Enterprise Is Now RESTXpress

REST4Enterprise has only been out for a month or so and is al­ready making a big splash with its simple, yet very sig­nif­i­cant, premise: You want to make your data avail­able as an API (REST) ser­vice. You want this done quickly and cost-​​effectively. REST4Enterprise fills the gap.

Except now it’s RESTXpress. We wanted a better name for the product while it was still in its be­gin­ning stages, so we have set­tled on RESTXpress as the name going for­ward. Visit the RESTXpress page for all the latest information.

Case Study on Our Partnership with Progress Software

progress software logo Case Study on Our Partnership with Progress Software

Last week, we an­nounced our OEM part­ner­ship with Progress Software, a global soft­ware com­pany that sim­pli­fies and en­ables the de­vel­op­ment and de­ploy­ment of busi­ness ap­pli­ca­tions through its OpenEdge de­vel­op­ment plat­form. To pro­vide more de­tails on how this ex­citing part­ner­ship came to be, we de­vel­oped a case study. It dis­cusses the main rea­sons for Exadel’s se­lec­tion as a partner:

  1. Product (Tiggzi): a hy­brid ap­proach based in the Cloud
  2. Partner-​​friendliness
  3. Mobile ser­vices expertise

It also in­cludes a good de­scrip­tion of the OpenEdge platform’s key features.

Read the case study and see how it all fit together.

Exadel Is Now an OEM Partner with Progress Software

Progress Software is a large pub­licly traded (NASDAQ: PRGS) global soft­ware com­pany that sim­pli­fies and en­ables the de­vel­op­ment and de­ploy­ment of busi­ness ap­pli­ca­tions through its OpenEdge de­vel­op­ment plat­form. When Progress wanted to bol­ster its de­vel­op­ment sup­port in mo­bile, it turned to a partner al­ready es­tab­lished in the mo­bile space, Exadel. We are proud that our Tiggzi mo­bile app plat­form pro­vided much of the basis for the mo­bile app builder in OpenEdge Mobile re­leased as part of OpenEdge 11.2 on February 20, 2013. We look for­ward to working fur­ther with Progress Software as an OEM partner helping busi­nesses de­velop the soft­ware they need to be successful.
