Kony launches AppVantage enabling orgs to create apps from packaged components
Enterprise mobility provider Kony has announced the launch of AppVantage, a product which allows companies to develop customisable mobile apps from packaged components and promising a ‘new approach’ to help organisations’ growing demand.
The new product includes hosting analytics, security, and OS upgrades, alongside management and support, and promises what would normally be expected from such announcements, including enterprise grade security and an ‘exceptional’ design and user experience. Apps will also be continuously updated through the platform, ensuring organisations won’t fall behind the curve.
“Building a business-critical app can seem like a daunting or even near-impossible task for businesses lacking mobile app development skills or resources. Yet companies can’t afford to remain analog if they want to stay competitive in today’s rapidly changing digital era,” said Dave Shirk, president of products, strategy and marketing at Kony in a statement.
“With Kony AppVantage, we’re able to help businesses – large and small – turn their ideas into innovative applications that deliver the best business outcomes.
“This new offering, which costs less than hiring one full-time app developer, also provides flexibility to modify or expand the apps to respond to future enhancement requirements.”
One customer already using AppVantage is San Francisco-based medical firm Loop. “We were able to go live in the high barrier to entry healthcare setting with a high-quality offering at an accelerated timeframe,” said Shannon Griffin, Loop chief executive officer. “Kony helped us bring our vision to reality and we look forward to our continued partnership.”
This represents another approach to the low and no-code application development processes featured not only frequently in this publication, but also in Forrester’s latest report earlier this week – although Kony’s promise of great UX does go against the grain. “While developers might choose to sweat every pixel in a prominent B2C app, that level of control might not be important for the half-dozen employee apps in the backlog for finance, sales, field service and operations,” the report notes.
Kony was placed as a leader in the Forrester report, with the analyst firm praising its design-friendly approach. You can find out more about Kony AppVantage here.
