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.

Welcome, Debra Harris

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.

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 »

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.

Sometimes it’s good to stop for a sec­ond and take stock. At Exadel we did this re­cently and an­nounced the re­sults in this press re­lease. The high­lights are that the rev­enue for the first half of 2013 is 22% over the rev­enue for the first half of 2012 and that we’ve rolled out 4 prod­ucts in the mo­bile and se­cu­rity ar­eas:

We can’t wait to see how the sec­ond half of 2013 stacks up!

 

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.
