The Apperian mobile app management platform provides a comprehensive set of APIs that make it open and highly extensible. This allows customers and partners to seamlessly integrate with and extend our award-winning platform for enterprise mobility management – even beyond what we bring to market ourselves.
Why is openness critical to customer success? We believe open and extensible enterprise mobility management is at the core of making mobility work in the enterprise. Mobility has grown in isolation from other aspects of corporate IT infrastructure. It evolved at a different pace, requires a different toolset, and is not yet uniformly adopted throughout organizations. When mobility is isolated and needs to be administered differently, it adds complexity to IT management and does not allow the enterprise to realize the full ROI of mobility. Openness will help resolve these pain points.
Apperian’s set of open APIs is a collection of RESTful web service interfaces. These interfaces handle the management of many key elements of the Apperian platform to extend, integrate, and create additional functionality and value based on our customer’s and partner’s specific business needs. This seamlessly allows external systems to access capabilities, such as publishing apps, performing app inspections, accessing reports, crowdsourcing, monitoring the overall system, and more. The API interfaces are already in use both within the Apperian platform and in conjunction with other partners like McAfee, IBM, Appcelerator, Mobiquity, Xamarin, iFactr, AnyPresence, and ViziApps.
