John Derrick Takes the Helm as Appery Prepares for Accelerated Growth


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


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.

Looking Back as Appery Acquires Verivo Assets


Last month, our wholly owned sub­sidiary, Appery, LLC, ac­quired the major as­sets of Verivo Software, a leading provider of en­ter­prise mo­bility soft­ware. This will allow us to com­bine the best en­ter­prise back-end server (from Verivo) with the leading cloud-based, low-code de­vel­op­ment plat­form (Appery​.io) to create a su­pe­rior agile end-to-end plat­form for IT and the lines of busi­ness within en­ter­prises. Let’s re­view some of the key steps that have led up to this mo­ment in Exadel’s ever-rising tra­jec­tory as a soft­ware leader. Read more »
