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.)

Find out more about our Appery.io-related ser­vices and our more gen­eral mo­bile ser­vices.

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

MobileMerits_Winner

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
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 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’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

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

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.
