Clutch Names Exadel as a Leader among SF Bay Software Developers

Clutch, a well known B2B re­search firm, named Exadel as a lead­ing cus­tom soft­ware de­vel­op­ment com­pany in San Francisco. Clutch uses a rig­or­ous method­ol­ogy based on re­views, ser­vices of­fered, and qual­ity for its analy­sis. For cus­tom soft­ware de­vel­op­ment com­pa­nies, the eval­u­a­tion takes into ac­count how well the com­pa­nies trans­late client goals into cre­ative cus­tom soft­ware so­lu­tions af­ter of­fer­ing a va­ri­ety of op­tions and sug­ges­tions along the way. We’re glad to have been rec­og­nized for our ex­cel­lence in de­liv­er­ing busi­ness value through cus­tom soft­ware.

Making Sense of 2 IoT Protocols: MQTT and CoAP

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Layers_of_the_Web_of_Things_Architecture.png

Exadel’s VP of Software Development, Jonathan Fries, has shared an­other thought­ful piece on the Internet of Things, this time fo­cus­ing on two tech­nolo­gies that stand out for IoT de­vice com­mu­ni­ca­tions: MQTT (Message Queue Telemetry Transport) and CoAP (Constrained Application Protocol). There’s no al­ways right an­swer for which to use, but Jonathan gives some guid­ance on how to de­cide based on the situation—after ex­plain­ing each of the pro­to­cols. He also makes some pre­dic­tions about the fu­ture for these pro­to­cols.

Our Appery sub­sidiary re­cently de­vel­oped an in­fo­graphic ex­plain­ing how a two-pronged “bi­modal” ap­proach is best for meet­ing the es­ca­lat­ing de­mands on en­ter­prise IT for more and more apps. Because this is some­thing we are very fa­mil­iar with, we have of­ten been asked about how to use bi­modal IT. As an ex­am­ple, here’s an in­ter­view with our CEO, Fima Katz, on this topic.

We’ve also cre­ated a slideshow out of the re­cently pub­lished in­fo­graphic to give peo­ple an­other way of look­ing at the in­for­ma­tion in the in­fo­graphic:

Niki Scherer and Max Katz from Exadel’s sub­sidiary, Appery, were down in Austin, TX last week to par­tic­i­pate in the [BE] Enterprise Mobility Forum /​ Fall 2015. Along with ex­plain­ing how Appery​.io can help busi­nesses with their mo­bi­liza­tion ef­forts and dis­cussing ideas about the gen­eral state of en­ter­prise mo­bi­liza­tion, they also got a chance to dig into some of the lo­cal bar­be­cue.

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.

Looking Back as Appery Acquires Verivo Assets

appery_verivo2

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 »
