Verivo Software, an enterprise mobility company, has launched Verivo Akula, a new mobile app platform designed to simplify the complexities of building, securing and controlling custom enterprise apps. The company will be offering free trials of its software.
Akula allows users to build and execute on transactional business apps even when the user is out of coverage range. It also allows IT operation teams, such as help desks, to control and manage the operations of these apps, while meeting rigorous security requirements.
The mobile app platform has been designed to be deployed on-premise or in the cloud. Built in collaboration with Verivo’s diverse group of enterprise mobile customers and partners, Akula is designed to address the major challenges of building and managing custom enterprise apps.
The platform gives developers the freedom to use any standard development tool to build and update apps. The platform also makes it easy to deploy, secure, monitor and troubleshoot these apps in today’s multi-device, multi-operating system environments.
The Verivo team built this product in a modular, extendable manner so additional capabilities can be quickly incorporated into the platform. Akula has a very light footprint, is holistically designed and easily scalable. The platform integrates into existing corporate environments and is compatible with today’s mobile ecosystem, including front-end, testing and proprietary tools.
“Open API projects will continue to evolve and be top-of-mind for mobile app developers,” said Charlotte Dunlap, senior analyst, Application Platforms, Current Analysis. “With mobile app platform vendors, such as Verivo Software, opening up their technology and delivering new ways to build and manage enterprise mobile apps, developers are further empowered to meet the needs of the evolving market.”
Verivo is changing its business strategy to cater to the way developers and corporate users build and manage their mobile initiatives. The company will primarily engage, educate and sell online. Users can download Akula and try the platform for 30 days at no cost. They will have full access to the company’s support and DevCenter and all product documentation and tutorials will be open to the public. Verivo is also introducing predictable and incremental pricing so a company can use the product in phases – starting with just development licenses to deploying a pilot of their app to expanding to a full scale deployment.
Akula will be generally available on June 28, 2013.
