Apperian Launches Open API For Enterprise Mobility Platform
Now Companies Can Seamlessly Integrate with and Extend Apperian’s Award-Winning Platform for Enterprise Mobility Management
BOSTON, April 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Apperian(®), Inc., the leading platform for securing and managing enterprise mobile apps, today announced the availability of an open application programming interface (API) for Apperian’s entire enterprise mobility platform. Now Apperian customers and partners have the unique opportunity to take advantage of the fully extensible platform, its robust mobility management capabilities and its unmatched scalability to complement and extend their own enterprise mobility solutions.
“Apperian is almost an advertisement for openness,” said Cormac Foster, Research Director at Gigaom Research in his report titled, Sector RoadMap: Enterprise mobility management. “Unlike other competitors in the EMM market, their strategy is application-focused and leverages their open platform to partner with complementary technologies.”
Apperian is the only solution in the enterprise mobility management market with a fully extensible platform that makes it easy for partners and customers to integrate and extend their own solutions into their own or third-party IT infrastructures. Recently, the company launched a brand new, first-of-its-kind mobile app policy engine that is completely open and makes it easy and fast for enterprises and business partners to develop custom app usage and security policies for enterprise mobile apps. Opening the entire platform with APIs is the next phase of extensibility for Apperian and the company continues to innovate new ways to make its technology easily accessible and flexible for partners and customers.
“We support the approach Apperian has taken by opening its platform to partners and enterprises,” said Adam Bookman, co-founder of Propelics, a leader in enterprise mobile strategy and mobile app development. “Not only does this make it easier for Apperian partners and customers to integrate with existing IT systems, but it also enables the development of extensions on the platform to meet specific client needs. This direction saves time and enables the delivery of new value in the market.”
Leading mobility vendors and Apperian partners have already leveraged the open APIs by seamlessly integrating Apperian’s mobile app publishing capability into their technology. More than a dozen partners have already integrated, including IBM Worklight, Appcelerator, Mobiquity, Xamarin, iFactr, AnyPresence, and ViziApps.
“By opening up our APIs we are now enabling enterprises and partners to leverage our capabilities as a true mobility platform,” said Carlos Montero-Luque, Apperian’s chief technology officer. “The openness of Apperian’s platform is similar to what Salesforce did with Force.com. We offer the flexibility for customers and partners to easily integrate with their existing enterprise infrastructure as well as to offer new and extended capabilities on top of our platform. The API is broad, secure and stable and provides partners and companies with more freedom – which is important in a market like mobility management that’s filled with proprietary approaches.”
