Open Extensible Enterprise Mobility Management

Open API AnouncementHi. This is Carlos Montero-Luque. I'm the CTO at Apperian, and I'm here to bring you a really set of exciting announcements that we are coming to the market and to you that deal really with the extension of the EASE Apperian platform to integrate much more tightly with corporate infrastructures, and to be extended in ways that go above and beyond what we ourselves even bring to the market. The analogy that I have in mind is one of islands. Mobility has grown in a very different way from other aspects of a corporate IT infrastructure, and the risk is that it becomes isolated, that the tools to manage it, to handle it, et cetera, are totally isolated from the rest of corporate IT. And we think that that does not allow a company take full advantage of this investment in mobility, and in fact it overcomplicates the platform. So we believe that the core aspect, the key aspect of making this work is actually one of openness. So the announcement that we have is actually the ability to actually access all the aspects of our enterprise mobility platform beyond open API, which is a set of RESTful web service interfaces that you or a service provider can build on, can extend, can integrate, can create additional functionality and additional value based on the platform. And this allows you to integrate this platform with other aspects of your enterprise mobility. So you have a cohesive view that allows you to manage it properly and allows you to get additional productivity and additional value out of this investment. So this announcement is actually a follow-up to a number of announcements we've done in the past, whether we did the publishing API or we announced a dynamic policy framework that allows third parties to create additional policies to manage this mobility environment, or other services that we will bring very soon to the fore. But this announcement, the open API, really focuses on this: on the documentation and the publishing of these interfaces. And these interfaces handle the management of some of the key elements of a mobility IT infrastructure, so applications, users, groups, the ability to take action based on the platform that we bring to the table, like publishing apps, for example, or doing app inspections, or be able to do reports or crowdsourcing, and also be able to monitor, monitoring capability so that you know that the platform is running and you can also then tie it up to other monitoring solutions. We're very excited about this. It's only the first step in a larger plan to make every single API in our platform fully open and accessible to third parties. And we believe that it's a core element of differentiation in terms of making our platform the most open for enterprise mobility and the most able to be integrated and extended above and beyond the core elements of mobility on the enterprise. Thank you very much.
