Exadel Acquires New Company in Europe, ReeWise

ReeWise in Poland in Europe

Back in December we ac­quired a Polish com­pany called Akme Software. Now, we’ve ac­quired an­other Polish com­pany to en­rich our cor­po­rate port­fo­lio of skills, knowl­edge, and ex­pe­ri­ence and to ex­pand our European pres­ence. The ReeWise ac­qui­si­tion sig­nif­i­cantly bol­sters Exadel’s big data, an­a­lyt­ics, and busi­ness in­tel­li­gence ca­pa­bil­i­ties. Welcome aboard, ReeWise!

Here’s what Fima Katz, founder and CEO at Exadel, had to say about this:

ReeWise rep­re­sents an­other big step in our over­all strat­egy of global ex­pan­sion by adding to our Technology Capability Portfolio, and we are ex­cited to have the ReeWise team join Exadel. Their fo­cus on speci­fic ser­vice of­fer­ings in big data and an­a­lyt­ics, as well as busi­ness in­tel­li­gence, is a per­fect fit for our cur­rent and fu­ture client needs. With the added ca­pa­bil­i­ties of ReeWise, we now have the abil­ity to drive our big data and an­a­lyt­ics prac­tice glob­ally.

How to Be an Internet of Things (IoT) Developer in the Modern Age

Graphic representation of world covered with Internet of Things (Iot) connections

The pro­lif­er­a­tion of con­nected de­vices over the past sev­eral years has been as­ton­ish­ing. From every­day items like wear­ables and ther­mostats to more am­bi­tious de­vices like so­lar pan­els and street lights, it seems as if there are few things that are not con­nected in some way. As we look to­ward the fu­ture to fully con­nected cities, hos­pi­tals, and homes, the role of the IoT de­vel­oper is be­com­ing ever more cru­cial.

Software de­vel­op­ment is of grow­ing im­por­tance in all kinds of in­dus­tries, but ar­guably none is more im­por­tant than de­vel­op­ing for and with con­nected de­vices. If your Fitbit glitches, that is one story, but it is an en­tirely dif­fer­ent one if a con­nected med­ical de­vice fails in the mid­dle of surgery or a self-dri­ving car goes hay­wire in the mid­dle of rush hour. Because of the crit­i­cal role that IoT de­vices are play­ing in our lives, poorly de­vel­oped IoT de­vices can be life threat­en­ing, mak­ing this type of de­vel­op­ment par­tic­u­larly unique.

Exadel & Amadeus Are Teaming Up to Push Technology Innovation to a New Level

Startup Stock Photos

As the founder of Exadel and Appery​.io, pas­sion for in­no­va­tion is one of my dri­ving forces. We’ve built a suc­cess­ful com­pany by ac­tively seek­ing new chal­lenges and op­por­tu­ni­ties to in­no­vate. We have a say­ing that ex­em­pli­fies our ethos: “It’s not IT, it’s TI” – that is, Technology Innovation.

When we look at projects, we ask, “How can we take this to the next level? How can we rise above tra­di­tional IT so­lu­tions and in­stead de­velop a TI so­lu­tion?” It was with those same ideas in mind that we pur­sued the next evo­lu­tion of the Exadel fam­ily. We be­gan to look for other com­pa­nies that want to go be­yond the main­stream.

As one re­sult of this search, we are ex­cited to an­nounce that we will be merg­ing with Amadeus Consulting, a pre­mier provider of in­no­v­a­tive soft­ware strat­egy and de­vel­op­ment ser­vices based in Boulder, Colorado. Amadeus has a long his­tory (20+ years, like us) of suc­cess­ful, per­son­al­ized soft­ware de­vel­op­ment projects that align per­fectly with our Technology Innovation ap­proach.

john-e-derrick-photo

Appery was spun off by Exadel last year to fo­cus on mar­ket­ing, sup­port­ing, and de­vel­op­ing the Appery​.io mo­bile plat­form. With the ad­di­tion of its new CEO this week, Appery​.io is poised for ex­plo­sive growth as the top low-code, se­cure, cloud-based plat­form for cross-de­vice ap­pli­ca­tions.

John Derrick, the new CEO, has demon­strated time and again, through­out his ca­reer, an un­sur­passed abil­ity to lead pri­vate and pub­lic com­pa­nies to suc­cess as CEO, COO, and Advisor. His ex­ten­sive busi­ness ex­pe­ri­ence in­cludes pri­vate and pub­lic cloud, big data, data­base, and en­ter­prise mar­kets. We at Exadel look for­ward to great things to come from Appery un­der its new leader.

JBoss and Exadel: 8 Years of Working Together

jbds9

Exadel had de­vel­oped two well-re­garded prod­ucts in 2006. Exadel Studio was an Eclipse plug-in that con­verted Eclipse from just an in­te­grated de­vel­op­ment en­vi­ron­ment (IDE) to a pow­er­ful web app IDE. RichFaces was a JavaServer Faces (JSF) com­po­nent li­brary de­vel­oped by Exadel as part of its lead­er­ship role in JSF de­vel­op­ment at the time.

In March 2007, Exadel be­gan a part­ner­ship with Red Hat putting Exadel Studio and RichFaces into open source un­der JBoss. A key part of this part­ner­ship that con­tinues to this day (eight years later) is Red Hat con­tracting with Exadel for Exadel to pro­vide a de­vel­opment team to work on what is now known as JBoss Developer Studio.

Denis Golovin, in our California of­fice, has been the team lead on the Exadel side of the part­ner­ship for this whole time, so we thought we’d ask him a few ques­tions about it.

What Happened to RESTXpress (Our All-purpose REST API Gateway)?

RESTXpress Logo

RESTXpress has been rein­vented as a part of the Appery​.io mo­bile app plat­form called API Express. RESTXpress pro­vided an easy-to-in­stall REST API gate­way that al­lowed quick “RESTification” of cor­po­rate as­sets — such as­sets as SQL data­bases, SOAP ser­vices, ex­ist­ing REST ser­vices, Salesforce data, and in­ter­nal work­flows.

Now, these fea­tures (and more to come) have been rolled into Appery​.io. We de­cided to do this be­cause it made more sense to treat RESTXpress as a mo­bile app en­abler that would be a nat­u­ral part of Appery​.io as part of a mo­bile app “suite.” It also en­ables us to pool re­sources (de­vel­op­ers, sup­port en­gi­neers, etc.) to make more ef­fi­cient use of them. Finally, be­cause of the com­mon plat­form ef­fort, it en­ables the de­vel­op­ment of sym­bi­otic hooks be­tween API Express and the rest of the Appery​.io plat­form to provide greater value for our users.

As we close the book on RESTXpress, we thought it might be time for some re­flec­tion. Alex Antsypov has been with the project from the be­gin­ning as the de­vel­op­ment lead. Recently, I asked him some ques­tions about the past, present, and fu­ture of RESTXpress/​API Express.

Update on Our Lithuanian Presence

View of Vilnius, Lithuania

Vilnius, Lithuania: old world charm, new world dy­namism

Lithuania is where our CEO and Founder, Fima Katz, grew up. In the sum­mer of 2014, he had a home­com­ing of sorts when he opened an of­fice in the cap­i­tal city, Vilnius.

For Exadel, Lithuania has the ad­van­tage of be­ing in Eastern Europe close to our other de­vel­op­ment cen­ters while also be­ing in­te­grated with Western Europe by its mem­ber­ship in the European Union and NATO. It’s also a very nice place to live and work.

In December 2014, we an­nounced fur­ther ex­pan­sion plans that in­clude open­ing ad­di­tional of­fices in Kaunas and Klaipeda. So far this year, we have more than 30 em­ploy­ees in Vilnius and five in Klaipeda. Soon, we’ll be open­ing our Kaunas of­fice! We look for­ward to fur­ther growth in all three de­vel­op­ment cen­ters.

Read our an­nounce­ment as re­ported in Invest Lithuania.
