September 18, 2012

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Sept. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Kinvey, Inc., the leading Backend as a Service company that makes it easy for developers to setup and operate scalable cloud backends for mobile, tablet and web apps, today announced an “end-to-end” technical integration between Brightcove’s (NASDAQ: BCOV) App Cloud mobile app platform and Kinvey’s Backend as a Service. App Cloud is Brightcove’s pioneering mobile app platform that makes it easy to build, deploy, and operate cross-platform smartphone and tablet apps using HTML5 and powerful cloud content services. With this integration, developers using App Cloud to build mobile apps, particularly for video content, can now build the backend “plumbing” that every data-driven application requires — in minutes instead of days or weeks. Kinvey offers developers a full-featured, scalable cloud backend, out of the box and ready to grow through every iteration of the development life cycle, from prototype to global scale.

“We are pleased to partner with innovators like Kinvey that expand the capabilities of App Cloud and help make it easier for developers to build engaging, interactive mobile apps quickly and easily,” said Phil Costa, director of product management for App Cloud at Brightcove.

To use the integrated solution, an App Cloud developer simply downloads the Kinvey JavaScript library for App Cloud, drops it into their app, and focuses on creating and building the front end – what users see and do on their mobile phones. The backend is ready to go within minutes, and developers have at their fingertips the Kinvey backend features like: data collections, user management, geoqueries, analytics, versioned APIs, Data Integration (including integrated services of Google Places, Yahoo! Local, and foursquare, automatic sign-on to Facebook) and business logic.

“App Cloud is a very cool way for developers to build successful mobile apps using their HTML5 and Javascript development skills and leverage Brightcove’s strong cloud-based services across a range of platforms and mobile devices,” said Sravish Sridhar, CEO and Founder of Kinvey, Inc. “With Kinvey, these developers have the instant ability to stretch the bounds of their app ideas by including any data and cloud services they choose. This makes for powerful opportunities to build new kinds of mobile, tablet and web apps.”
