Software Development Tools Belong in the Browser

Software-Development Tools Belong in the Browser (via slashdot)

It is clear that the cloud is disrupting the way most software is deployed and consumed. Benefits such as elasticity, agility, and operational cost savings make it very compelling for companies to go with the cloud model, and the simplicity of the browser…

2013 Has Been a Great Year So Far


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.

Exadel Just Got a Mobile Merit Award for Appery​.io


We won! Mobile Merit Awards rec­og­nizes ex­cel­lence achieved in the global mo­bile in­dus­try each year. This year Exadel was rec­og­nized as the win­ner in the Mobile Services/​Enterprise Product or Service cat­e­gory for our Appery​.io mo­bile app plat­form.

For a while, we’ve noted the grow­ing gap as the de­mand for mo­bile in­no­va­tion in the en­ter­prise out­strips the ca­pa­bil­i­ties and ca­pac­ity of IT or­ga­ni­za­tions. Our Appery​.io mo­bile app plat­form is just one ex­am­ple of how we are clos­ing this gap. We also of­fer ser­vices to help or­ga­ni­za­tions use Appery​.io and, of course, a full gamut of en­ter­prise soft­ware de­vel­op­ment ser­vices in ad­di­tion to Appery.io-specific ser­vices.

Congratulation to our hard-work­ing global pro­duct de­vel­op­ment team!

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 »

Exadel Enterprise MobileSafe

As pointed out be­fore in our ar­ti­cle on Exadel Secure Documents, Exadel of­fers a va­ri­ety of “so­lu­tions” that aren’t quite shrink-wrapped prod­ucts, but provide a lot of the ben­e­fits of a pro­duct. Exadel Enterprise MobileSafe is a soft­ware so­lu­tion from Exadel that solves the gen­eral prob­lem of en­ter­prises al­low­ing mo­bile ac­cess to their data while main­tain­ing max­i­mum se­cu­rity. The so­lu­tion takes ad­van­tage of the flex­i­bil­ity and cross-plat­form na­ture of HTML5 or hy­brid web apps (Cordova/​PhoneGap) to provide se­cure ac­cess on a va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent mo­bile plat­forms at a lower cost. With MobileSafe, Exadel sets it up so the ac­cess­ing apps are down­loaded from your se­cure server into an en­crypted (AES-256) cache on the client de­vices for full se­cu­rity. Read more »

Exadel Secure Documents


Exadel works on a lot of dif­fer­ent projects, so we are of­ten able to reuse cod­ing and ap­proach to solve sim­i­lar prob­lems. We of­ten call these quasi-prod­ucts “so­lu­tions”: not quite off-the-shelf, but much fur­ther along than start­ing from scratch. Taking ad­van­tage of such a so­lu­tion still re­quires a project en­gage­ment with us, but the cost and time-to-mar­ket is much lower.

One such so­lu­tion is Exadel Secure Documents. The prob­lem solved is how to make doc­u­ments that may be con­tained in many dif­fer­ent Enterprise Document Management Systems avail­able out­side the en­ter­prise in a se­cure, uni­fied way. Once set up, the doc­u­ments can then be ac­cessed through Secure Documents ap­pli­ca­tions on dif­fer­ent client de­vices. Read more »

Exadel at the Wolters Kluwer Tech Conference 2013


Exadel’s Donna Burke, Max Katz, and Fima Katz made the trek to ex­cit­ing Minneapolis, Minnesota to at­tend the Wolters Kluwer Tech Conference 2013, July 22–24. We will be there to talk about our mo­bile work with Wolters Kluwer, our in­stal­lable gate­way for us­ing ex­ist­ing data­bases and SOAP ser­vices as REST ser­vices (RESTXpress), our mo­bile app de­vel­op­ment plat­form (Appery​.io), and our so­lu­tions for en­ter­prise mo­bile app se­cu­rity and for uni­fied se­cure ac­cess to en­ter­prise doc­u­ment man­age­ment sys­tems. Of course, we’ll also be there to learn from the ses­sions and other par­tic­i­pants.

If you’re there and want to talk to us, Exadel is in booth 3 on the floor. Tuesday af­ter­noon, Donna Burke made a pre­sen­ta­tion (“Are you ready for Mobile?”) on the chal­lenges and op­por­tu­ni­ties of en­ter­prise mo­bi­liza­tion in­clud­ing ex­am­ples from our work with Wolters Kluwer on mo­bi­liza­tion projects. If you have ques­tions aris­ing from the pre­sen­ta­tion, come by our ta­ble and talk to us.

Tiggzi Evolves into Appery​.io


As our Tiggzi mo­bile app de­vel­op­ment tool has ex­panded, it’s scope has steadily grown to that of a full mo­bile app plat­form with more and more fea­tures. We thought such a ma­jor qual­i­ta­tive change needed to be sig­naled prop­erly, so we’ve launched Appery​.io as the next step for Tiggzi.

We’re look­ing for­ward to the op­por­tu­nity to spread the word about the new Appery​.io. Our first stop will be the TechCrunch Disrupt NY Conference and Hackathon start­ing in a few days. If you’re there, find out from Max Katz and Francisco Kattan what the new Appery​.io is all about.

REST4Enterprise Is Now RESTXpress

REST4Enterprise has only been out for a month or so and is al­ready mak­ing a big splash with its sim­ple, yet very sig­nif­i­cant, premise: You want to make your data avail­able as an API (REST) ser­vice. You want this done quickly and cost-ef­fec­tively. REST4Enterprise fills the gap. 

Except now it’s RESTXpress. We wanted a bet­ter name for the pro­duct while it was still in its be­gin­ning stages, so we have set­tled on RESTXpress as the name go­ing for­ward. Visit the RESTXpress page for all the lat­est in­for­ma­tion.

Case Study on Our Partnership with Progress Software

Last week, we an­nounced our OEM part­ner­ship with Progress Software, a global soft­ware com­pany that sim­pli­fies and en­ables the de­vel­op­ment and de­ploy­ment of busi­ness ap­pli­ca­tions through its OpenEdge de­vel­op­ment plat­form. To provide more de­tails on how this ex­cit­ing part­ner­ship came to be, we de­vel­oped a case study. It dis­cusses the main rea­sons for Exadel’s se­lec­tion as a part­ner:

  1. Product (Tiggzi): a hy­brid ap­proach based in the Cloud
  2. Partner-friend­li­ness
  3. Mobile ser­vices ex­per­tise

It also in­cludes a good de­scrip­tion of the OpenEdge platform’s key fea­tures.

Read the case study and see how it all fit to­gether.

Exadel Is Now an OEM Partner with Progress Software

Progress Software is a large pub­licly traded (NASDAQ: PRGS) global soft­ware com­pany that sim­pli­fies and en­ables the de­vel­op­ment and de­ploy­ment of busi­ness ap­pli­ca­tions through its OpenEdge de­vel­op­ment plat­form. When Progress wanted to bol­ster its de­vel­op­ment sup­port in mo­bile, it turned to a part­ner al­ready es­tab­lished in the mo­bile space, Exadel. We are proud that our Tiggzi mo­bile app plat­form pro­vided much of the ba­sis for the mo­bile app builder in OpenEdge Mobile re­leased as part of OpenEdge 11.2 on February 20, 2013. We look for­ward to work­ing fur­ther with Progress Software as an OEM part­ner help­ing busi­nesses de­velop the soft­ware they need to be suc­cess­ful.

REST4Enterprise Gets Better: Version 1.0 Out

The ba­sic con­cept is sim­ple: You have some data you want to share through a REST ser­vice. You don’t have the ser­vice built. You con­sider spend­ing a lot of re­sources and time on build­ing it your­self. You look for an al­ter­na­tive. You find REST4Enterprise. It has two parts. You use its ad­min­is­tra­tive con­sole to eas­ily set up data­base queries as REST ser­vices in a browser; you let the run-time gate­way present the data­base queries as ser­vices to the out­side world. Happy ending/​beginning!

Of course, a good con­cept is noth­ing with­out a lot of el­bow grease to work out the im­ple­men­ta­tion de­tails. That’s ex­actly what our team has been do­ing since the REST4Eneterprise launch. Their lat­est ef­forts have come to fruition as a new ver­sion, 1.0, avail­able now. Read more »

REST for the Weary


The API econ­omy of REST ser­vices has a sup­ply side and a de­mand side. Recently, a lot of at­ten­tion has been paid to the de­mand side. There are now many op­tions for set­ting up var­i­ous mo­bile and web apps to con­sume ser­vices and data via REST (like our own Tiggzi mo­bile app plat­form). But, what about the sup­ply side?
