John Derrick Takes the Helm as Appery Prepares for Accelerated Growth

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.

Bimodal IT for the Coming App Explosion

bimodal-it-app-explosion

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:

[BE] Enterprise Mobility Forum … with a Side of Brisket

2015-10-19 20.03.51 (Mobile)

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. Niki is off to an­other city now spreading the word about Appery​.io, but she had enough time to share a few words about the forum:

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 »

Exadel is ex­cited to be­come an af­fil­iate of the Wall Street Technology Association, a group of fi­nan­cial in­dustry tech­nology pro­fes­sionals gath­ering to­gether for ed­u­ca­tional events and in­formal knowl­edge sharing. As an af­fil­iate, we join other tech­nology providers in sup­porting pro­grams for fi­nan­cial firm mem­bers.

Exadel has de­vel­oped deep ex­pe­ri­ence in many ver­ti­cals over the last 17 years, but fi­nan­cial ser­vices has al­ways been been one of those ver­ti­cals. We look for­ward to working with our col­leagues in WSTA to bring the or­ga­ni­za­tion to new heights,

Mobile Field Service Apps Webinar Recordings Up!

“Mobile Field Service Apps: CRM, Workflow, Coverage Policies, and More in Your Pocket” is quite a mouthful for our we­binar se­ries, but it does cover a lot. All are record­ings from the se­ries are now avail­able on­line:

  1. Mobile Field Service Apps: More than CRM on an iPhone
  2. Building Custom Field Service Mobile Apps that Drive Revenue
  3. Enabling the Mobile Financial Advisor

Learn about Enterprise Mobility from Exadel & Verivo

The en­ter­prise is going mo­bile more and more. The dif­fer­ence is in how quick and trouble-free the tran­si­tion can be fore your par­tic­ular busi­ness.

Verivo and Exadel have been part­nering to­gether to make seam­less en­ter­prise mo­bility happen for a va­riety of en­ter­prise cus­tomers. Now we feel it’s time to share our ex­pe­ri­ences. We wanted to present a we­binar to­gether to help others see the ben­e­fits of en­ter­prise mo­bility along with some lessons learned along the way, but we also wanted to make the in­for­ma­tion more di­gestible. So, we de­cided to break up the ma­te­rial into three brief 30-minute we­bi­nars.  The se­ries starts off April 1, then con­tinues on April 7 and April 14, all at 11am Pacific time. Here’s our line-up so far:

RESTXpress Comes Out with a New Version 3.1

RESTXpress Logo

RESTXpress is our REST API gateway that’s been making a lot of en­ter­prise IT de­part­ments happy through it’s ca­pa­bility to quickly REST-ify cor­po­rate as­sets — such as­sets as SQL data­bases, SOAP ser­vices, ex­isting REST ser­vices, Salesforce data, and in­ternal work­flows. In our latest ver­sion of RESTXpress, 3.1 (just re­leased), we’ve added more fea­tures to the ca­pa­bility to rep­re­sent in­ternal work­flows as REST ser­vices. Now, you can in­clude “If” and “Fork” nodes in the flows to rep­re­sent even richer busi­ness logic.

Both Exadel and Appery​.io (our product) popped up in a re­cent ar­ticle in eWEEK about code­less tools and plat­forms for mo­bile apps coming from “cit­izen de­vel­opers.” Here’s the ex­cerpt from the ar­ticle.

Mobile app de­vel­op­ment en­vi­ron­ment provider Exadel’s Appery​.io of­fers a cloud-based rapid de­vel­op­ment en­vi­ron­ment with in­te­grated back-end ser­vices and a cat­alog of API plug-ins that sim­plify in­te­gra­tion with cloud ser­vices and en­ter­prise sys­tems.

As part of its so­lu­tion, Appery​.io also fea­tures a no-code, RAD en­vi­ron­ment.
