BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Apr 24, 2013) - Apperian, Inc., the enterprise mobile application management (MAM) pioneer, today announced the partners taking advantage of its app publishing API program. The program empowers mobile application developers to publish apps directly into Apperian's MAM platform and enterprise app catalogs from partners' user interfaces -- making it easy and fast to publish, inspect, secure and sign new apps and app versions to an entire organization for testing, piloting and full deployment.
Apperian has teamed up with key players in the enterprise mobility space including Alpha Software, Antenna Software, AnyPresence, Appcelerator, FeedHenry, IBM Worklight, iFactr, Intrepid Pursuits, Kawet, Kony Solutions, Mobiquity, Verivo Software, ViziApps and Xamarin.
"It's much easier for us as an enterprise to quickly adopt and deploy applications by incorporating mobile application management capabilities from the start," said Alan Wamser, supervisor at Hays Medical Center, a customer of Apperian and Appcelerator. "Apps enabled by Apperian are easier to distribute, monitor, and manage -- making the entire process of creating great mobile apps better because developers can now engage with users throughout the process."
"There are several steps within the mobile app lifecycle, so tight integration between app development and app management tools will speed and simplify deployments for IT and line-of-business managers," said Chris Hazelton, Research Director, Mobile & Wireless at 451 Research. "The ability to quickly publish custom mobile apps regardless of how or where they are sourced within an organization will drive broad adoption of deployment-ready and enterprise-manageable mobile apps for employees and customers."
"Many of Xamarin's 15,000 customers are looking for ways to simplify secure app distribution to employees. With EASE integration directly with Xamarin Studio, Xamarin developers now have one-click access to Apperian's mobile app management capabilities," said Nat Friedman, co-founder and CEO, Xamarin.
Apperian's Publishing Partner Program delivers a number of benefits for anyone building mobile apps for the enterprise, including:
- 1-Click app publishing for testing and rollout: whether for 5 or 50,000 users
- Seamless integration with an "enterprise app catalog" platform that hundreds of enterprises are already using today and a consumer-like way of reaching users
- Access to rich mobile app management capabilities that enable enterprises to manage and track app updates, apply security policies, manage testing, and track user feedback
- Increased exposure for published apps to drive adoption with new users, which provides faster time-to-deployment and higher ROI
- Integrated app signing that allows organizations to sign or re-sign iOS and Android apps for full enterprise distribution, or update existing apps with new credentials
- User feedback capabilities that lets users post comments, ideas and report bugs quickly and easily, allowing development teams to manage beta cycles, proof of concepts and full app roll-outs
"There are many great options for companies to build or acquire enterprise apps," said David Patrick, CEO at Apperian. "Our goal is to provide choices to companies as to how to build or onboard new apps, and then provide a seamless way to deploy, secure and manage the apps in the enterprise. Tight integration between technology partners can deliver significant user benefits that save time, cut development costs and ensure that development teams are thinking comprehensively about the full lifecycle and user experience of their app."
