Kuzzle Introducing Platform Unifying Backend and Expansion in North America at TechCrunch Disrupt New York

Platform-agnostic solution demonstrating how fintech developers can address industry demands for progressive functionality that works seamlessly across the entire stack on mobile, web, IoT and more

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 15, 2017) - Kuzzle, a powerful backend platform that helps companies build and connect their various infrastructures for seamless development across all mediums and devices, is demonstrating the solution's capabilities for small to mid-sized digital and IT teams at TechCrunch Disrupt's Startup Alley on Tuesday May 16, 2017. Kuzzle will provide attendees with the opportunity to meet with U.S. Branch Manager Joseph Soares and Developer Evangelist Philippe Gamache and learn more about the impact the evolution of backend needs will be vital for future applications.

Back-end development consumes 60 percent of overall project budgets, and IDC predicts that half of all applications will need to be rewritten by the end of 2017 to accommodate the ever-evolving landscape of the platforms hosting the applications. These cases are especially true to financial businesses undergoing digital transformation for their customers. With the increasing need to maintain and upgrade existing applications, Kuzzle streamlines and future-proofs the backend infrastructure of software, in addition to helping companies move to the eventual cross-stack era where all apps will be built in concert across platforms.

With a booth in the Fintech Alley part of the Startup Alley floor, Kuzzle will be able to demonstrate how financial and banking companies can benefit from the backend platform in their digital transformation journey. With Kuzzle's out-of-the-box features, IT teams can provide innovative user experiences with a reduced time to market.

Kuzzle is platform agnostic and can work with virtually any other platform to build or extend a backend. Its multi-protocol design allows software stacks or devices that aren't designed to work together seamlessly connect, including:

  • HTTP Protocol: ready for Web, mobile, IoT & M2M applications
  • Web Sockets: ready for "real time" Web, mobile, IoT & M2M applications
  • ready for "real time" on older browsers versions (enterprise desktops)
  • MQTT: ready for "real time" IoT & M2M applications
  • Custom protocol plugins such as XMPP for messaging, TCP - UDP for console gaming & M2M & any custom need

"TechCrunch Disrupt is a leading authority in providing new early stage startups the opportunity to introduce their innovation to the global technology community " said Joseph Soares, U.S. Branch Manager at Kuzzle. "In addition to many innovative solutions from around the world, introducing Kuzzle to the numerous attending decision makers across a variety of emerging technologies will be a great opportunity we won't take lightly. We are thrilled to share and engage with other participating entrepreneurs and business leaders throughout the week."

The annual event features live technology demonstrations, celebrity keynotes and interview sessions, hundreds of exhibitors, and Startup and Hardware Alleys, where early-stage founders can meet some of the country's most influential people in technology.
