DreamFactory and Modus Create Partner to Automate APIs in Software Development Customer Engagements

The DreamFactory Velocity™ Partner Program Provides Technology and Expert Support to Enable Modus Create to Boost Productivity, Reduce Development Time, and Bid More Strategically; DreamFactory Eliminates the Need for Modus Create to Write REST APIs, Turns Data Sources Into "Developer-Ready" REST Endpoints, and Transforms One-Off Programming Engagements Into Ongoing Relationships With Recurring Value

CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 21, 2016) - DreamFactory Software, creator of the leading open-source API Automation Platform for application developers, and Modus Create, a software development agency, are partnering to accelerate the development of modern applications for some of the world's biggest brands. By joining the DreamFactory Velocity™ partner program, Modus gains access to DreamFactory technology, support, and more -- and can now deliver application development projects to its clients up to 60 percent faster than before, and with far less risk.

DreamFactory equips Modus Create to deliver more strategic projects
Demand by enterprise business units and departments for mobile access to corporate databases continues to outpace the ability of many enterprises to provide these apps. Increasingly, enterprises must look to outside development firms such as Modus Create to meet demand for their mobile initiatives. For such projects, backend integration for highly scalable mobile apps is among the thorniest problems faced by any development firm. By adding DreamFactory to its foundation tools, Modus can employ a non-disruptive approach to instantly get these backend APIs needed to rapidly deliver modern applications that mobilize enterprise data tiers.

"By using DreamFactory, we've been able to reduce the time to value in engagements by automating the creation of APIs for a wide range of legacy backends. This practice strategically positions us to be the go-to firm to best deliver entire app portfolios for our customers," said Patrick Sheridan, co-founder and CEO of Modus Create.

At the heart of the technical partnership between the two companies is DreamFactory's REST API Automation Platform. As a Velocity Partner, the Modus development team employs DreamFactory Enterprise to automatically generate backend APIs that can be moved seamlessly between development and production phases, supporting the entire application development lifecycle. At production, DreamFactory provides the end customer with a single point of control for managing, securing, tracking and governing API usage.

"Our customers need a lot of help meeting their mobile initiatives and look to us to recommend partners. We are thrilled to have a development partner as experienced as Modus Create join our program to not only provide app delivery, but more importantly help our customers build an API infrastructure," said Bill Appleton, co-founder and CEO of DreamFactory.

DreamFactory gives SIs and ISVs the means to modernize their API development process
Non-disruptive integration is an essential capability of the DreamFactory REST API platform for development partners. Simply connect DreamFactory to any data resource and it will create a palette of developer APIs with no changes to the customer database required. This makes it an ideal platform in secure enterprise engagements. By automating enterprise-grade RESTful backends at the start of projects, Velocity partners can shave weeks to months of development time by eliminating the need to build their own APIs. Better still, this allows meaningful front-end work to begin on day one -- dramatically shortening project delivery time and increasing client satisfaction.

Multiple ways to boost partner revenues
The Velocity Partner Program helps SIs, ISVs and IT services organizations build a meaningful practice around implementing and using a modern API architecture for their customer engagements. A variety of revenue sharing options are available.

DreamFactory's API automation value proposition unlocks several strategic benefits for any Velocity Partner:

  • Bid more competitively and shorten time to value
  • Elevates the partner to API Automation practitioners, thereby increasing the lifetime value of engagements by advancing a portfolio opportunity
  • Increase engagement profitability while simultaneously building a recurring infrastructure business
