3 Enterprise Mobility Concerns: Timing, Integration, Security

As a re­sult of con­ver­sa­tions with our cus­tomers, we can tell that the biggest is­sues in en­ter­prise mo­bil­ity are:

  • Time-to-mar­ket
  • Back-end in­te­gra­tion
  • Security of mo­bile apps Read more »

Our Approach to Security in the Enterprise


Security is an ab­solute ne­ces­sity in en­ter­prise busi­ness so­lu­tions, but it also in­volves a del­i­cate bal­anc­ing act. Enterprise data and processes must be pro­tected, but of­ten this has to hap­pen within an open Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) en­vi­ron­ment while still main­tain­ing flex­i­bil­ity for users through fea­tures like Single Sign-On (SSO). And, of course, all of this has to hap­pen in the most cost-ef­fec­tive man­ner pos­si­ble. Read more »

Come to the AT&T DevLab Workshop

We’ve been to a lot of AT&T hackathons and have been very im­pressed with these events. Now, AT&T is putting on a new event here in the San Francisco Bay Area called DevLab, a one-day hands-on pro­gram­ming work­shop to im­merse par­tic­i­pants in the lat­est ser­vices and tools for mo­bile app de­vel­op­ment. It will be held on September 25th at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA. (You can use the code MUSEUM to waive the reg­is­tra­tion charge.) Read more »

Exadel VP Consults Magic 8 Ball about Coming Amazon Phone

Image from David Schoenbach guest post in Venture Beat
OK. Exadel’s VP for Product Management, David Schoenbach, prob­a­bly didn’t use a magic 8 ball to fig­ure out the im­pact of the Amazon Phone. Even with­out any magic aids, David does make quite a cred­i­ble ef­fort, though, to di­vine the mo­bile fu­ture in a Venture Beat guest post that came out to­day. It starts out like this:

For all we do not know about the new Amazon phone, we do know one thing for sure: It’s from Amazon. Based on the company’s track record, we can make some ed­u­cated guesses about what’s in store and how Amazon’s ru­mored smart­phone may im­pact app de­vel­op­ment.

Mashable Publishes API Article from Exadel VP

Mashable Logo
Mashable just pub­lished an ar­ti­cle on “How Web APIs Unlock Value in the Cloud” by Exadel’s VP of Product Management, David Schoenbach. In this ar­ti­cle, David cov­ers a lot of ex­am­ples of the spread of web APIs and the im­pli­ca­tions of this spread (in­clud­ing an­swer­ing the all-im­por­tant ques­tion “What’s my mo­bile strat­egy?”). Here’s the lead para­graph from the ar­ti­cle:

The cloud is where it’s at. It’s where busi­ness data re­sides. It’s where so­cial user-gen­er­ated con­tent sits, where for­ward-think­ing cre­ators place their tools. Unfortunately, the cloud is also the place all that good stuff stays, un­used and unloved. That is, un­less you of­fer smart ways to ac­cess it. That is where a web API comes in.

We cur­rently of­fer demos for (JBoss) RichFaces and the Exadel M-Commerce Solution. We in­vented and con­tinue to de­velop RichFaces, so we are ex­perts in RichFaces.

Ingres Highlights Role in Exadel Cloud in a Box

A few blog en­tries back, Exadel launched its Cloud in a Box prod­uct hosted on Amazon EC2. We are quite proud of this end-​​​to-​​​end so­lu­tion for build­ing Rich Internet ap­pli­ca­tions on the Amazon Cloud (or for down­load­ing and build­ing RIAs on a dif­fer­ent host). To pro­vide this, Cloud in a Box stacks to­gether a num­ber of open source tech­nolo­gies. And, one of the key tech­nolo­gies is Ingres Database. Read more »
