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?

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 »
