Verivo Introduces Akula v2.5 Enterprise Mobile Application Platform

New Features Deliver Enterprise Readiness That Increases the Gap Between Traditional MEAPs and the State of the Art Akula Platform

WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwired - Oct 20, 2014) - Verivo Software, the industry's only open enterprise mobile application platform provider, today announced Akula 2.5, which improves enterprise readiness with additional authentication options, and support for large data sets. With upgrades to all aspects of its open, extensible platform, Akula 2.5 offers client, server and console improvements that appeal to developers and IT managers alike. 

Akula 2.5 enables IT departments to secure and govern mobile services and applications while allowing development teams to access and reuse these services leveraging the front-end tools of their choice. New features in Akula 2.5 include:

Server Upgrades:

  • Server Auditing -- records of all server management changes, logins and logouts;
  • OAuth for backend connections -- provides connection to data sources that require authentication via the OAuth protocol;
  • Hot deploy -- allows deployments of new apps or updates to existing apps to the server without restarting Akula.

Client Upgrades:

  • OAuth for primary app login -- enables mobile app authentication via Facebook, Twitter, Google, and others;

  • Large data downloads -- splits large data downloads from the server to mobile clients into smaller pieces so that mobile devices can receive and process large amounts of data using limited resources as well as pause and resume for large downloads.

  • Updated clients SDKs:
    • Updated Cordova SDK now compatible with latest Cordova release
    • iOS Client SDK ready for iOS8
    • Android Client SDK ready for Android L

  • Console Improvements:
    • Ability to view and filter audit records
    • Upload an AKZ file for hot deployment
    • General UI improvements
    • Improved timezone handling

"With this update to their Akula development platform, Verivo is looking to simplify and accelerate the enterprise mobile application development process," said Chris Marsh, principal analyst, enterprise mobility at 451 Research. "Akula v2.5 streamlines new application development and deployment without impacting existing enterprise processes."

"With Akula 2.5, Verivo Software has delivered a fully enhanced platform with upgrades to server, client and console," said Coco Jaenicke, chief marketing officer, Verivo Software. "Overall, these upgrades help raise the bar for security and manageability in an enterprise mobile application platform."
