Exadel Adds Collaboration, Heroku Integration on Mobile Development Platform

Exadel this week announced enhancements – including new collaboration capabilities – to its Appery.io cloud-based mobile development platform.

Fima Katz, founder, president and CEO, explains that the new collaboration functionality now found in Appery.io goes well beyond your average unified communications solution’s brand of collaboration, which only allows for screen sharing. Appery.io actually enables far-flung developers to access, manipulate, share and store via the cloud their applications as they’re being designed. He adds that the platform lives on Amazon Web Services and that Exadel guarantees SLAs and response time of the solution.

Also new from Exadel is the integration of Appery.io with Heroku. Now owned by Salesforce, Heroku is a platform for deploying applications, primarily Web apps but expanding into mobile. With the new integration of the solutions, developers can now design, develop and test their applications using Appery.io, and when those applications are ready for production they can instantly provision and publish them to Heroku.

The Heroku integration is an extension of Exadel’s existing relationship with Salesforce, as the company recently announced a partnership with Salesforce through which the company is promoting Exadel’s solution on a referral basis.

Exadel customers include leading financial firms including Franklin Templeton and UBS, retailers such as Sears, and tech firms including AMDOCS. Exadel also has an OEM relationship with Progress Software, which offers its own branded version of Appery.io.

Having been in business 15 years, Exadel is a software development company that builds mission-critical solutions for large companies, including some of the names above, as well as Deutsche Bank and eBay. Many of those same companies are now looking for mobility solutions, he says, so Exadel did a prototype solution to see how it would work, and the product – originally known as Tigger – took off, Katz tells MobilityTechzone.
