BOSTON – November 20th, 2013 – Apperian, Inc., the leading platform for securing and managing enterprise mobile apps, today announced tight integration between IBM MobileFirst mobile application platform, IBM Worklight and Apperian. Now, using a simple plugin, mobile application developers on the IBM Worklight platform can quickly and easily publish their apps with a single click, while gaining access to rich mobile app management capabilities that enable enterprises to manage and track app updates, apply security policies, manage testing and drive user adoption. “The integration of Apperian’s platform to Worklight is huge benefit to developers,” said Bhanu Morampudi VP of Engineering at Kutir Technologies. “What makes it exciting for us is that we can now use Worklight to develop our app and then we’ll be able to distribute them seamlessly through Apperian’s platform, saving us time and energy.” Apperian’s mobile application platform 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 “As highlighted in IBM’s recent announcement, together we’re offering a pre-integrated SaaS solution capable of supporting the full mobile application life cycle in a process that satisfies IT security requirements,” said David Patrick, CEO of Apperian. “IBM and Apperian are also now authorized resellers of each other’s technology – making it easy and seamless for customers to acquire the mobility solutions that they need from either company. We’re excited to work closely with IBM and see a tremendous opportunity to deliver more value to the market by making it easy and fast to publish, inspect, secure and sign new apps and app versions to an entire organization.”
