Capriza and Matrix42 join AppConfig enterprise app initiative
Palo Alto-based Capriza has announced it has signed up to the AppConfig Community, an enterprise app standards organisation with several key enterprise mobility management (EMM) vendors among its personnel.
The community, which was first announced at this year’s Mobile World Congress with AirWatch, IBM, JAMF Software and MobileIron as the founding members, aims to establish common goals for enterprise applications based on native OS standards, originally starting with iOS but including Android two months after the official launch.
“AppConfig is renowned for its leadership in driving open standards in the EMM market and we’re happy to join the community,” said Oren Ariel, Capriza CTO and co-founder in a statement. “With more than half a million total Capriza users around the globe and organisations pushing the capabilities of their business applications to the far edges of the enterprise, it’s critical that we leverage a standard like AppConfig to deploy and manage enterprise mobile apps easily and securely.”
Capriza plays in the space defined by analyst firm Gartner as rapid mobile app development (RMAD) – although the company says it is not particularly fond of the word ‘development’ in that context – while it also has partnership deals in place with AirWatch and MobileIron.
Earlier this month, Matrix42, a workplace management provider based in Germany, announced it had joined AppConfig. The company was a first-time entrant in the Gartner EMM Magic Quadrant earlier this year. In an official blog post, the company noted the move was a win-win situation for both sides. “Any successful effort to establish a technology framework needs to be endorsed by all major stakeholders, and Matrix42 is proud to be an active member of this initiative.”
Another recent entrant into AppConfig was SOTI, who joined back in July.
