Apperian extends open API platform to target mobile app developers
Mobile app management software provider Apperian is opening up its API to improve its reach and deployment options for mobile app developers.
The platform allows systems, including traditional MDM or EMM systems, corporate portals, custom-built mobile app stores and mobile app ISVs, to improve functionality by making use of Apperian’s mobile application management and security capabilities. The use of the Apperian API Platform allows organisations to boost the reach and security of traditional enterprise mobility management products, ensure greater flexibility for mobile application developers and increase effectiveness of enterprise DevOps.
Apperian president and CEO, Brian Day, said: “While demand for our full platform continues to grow, there are many enterprise mobility projects pushing the boundaries of their current systems. By exposing our platform’s functionality via APIs, existing systems and enterprise workflows can leverage our unique features to securely deploy and manage mobile apps in enterprise and extended enterprise settings.
“In a market filled with proprietary and cumbersome approaches that make it difficult to securely reach every targeted user, we wanted to maximise openness so organisations can truly reach the potential that mobility can deliver in work settings,” he added.
Several IT systems and first generation enterprise mobility management platforms are finding it hard to securely deploy apps to 100% of users who require them as the volume and importance of mobile apps being used in the enterprise grows and the target audiences widen, Apperian argues. Integration with the Apperian API Platform involves covering the complete mobile app lifecycle, including capabilities such as app onboarding, app inspection, security and management policies, app signing, app distribution, private-branded enterprise app stores and app analytics.
