ApiOmat makes first appearance in Gartner 2018 Magic Quadrant for Mobile Application Development Platforms.

Leipzig, July 31, 2018. ApiOmat, the enterprise Multi-Experience Development Platform, announced today that Gartner has positioned ApiOmat in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Mobile Application Development Platforms, 2018.1

The recognition of ApiOmat’s completeness of vision and ability to execute from Gartner comes during a recording-breaking summer for the software company headquartered in Leipzig, Germany. During the first six months of 2018, ApiOmat has already generated more incoming orders than the entirety of 2017 with a 226% increase in direct comparison to the first half of last year.

“We believe being recognized in the Gartner Magic Quadrant is a great accomplishment that signals that ApiOmat is a proven enterprise-grade solution and our growth this year has confirmed this. Enterprises use our product to quickly build systems of differentiation – allowing them to maximize their touchpoints across digital frontend devices while connecting their existing IT systems with adaptive integration. ApiOmat provides all the tools for business and IT to create rapid prototypes and take live in just a matter of weeks.” states Marcel Etzel, CEO.

Enterprise companies such as Volkswagen, LBBW and Union Investment use ApiOmat to build multi-experience solutions faster, enabling them to deliver mobile and web apps, chatbots, voice assistant skills that integrate with their enterprise IT at startup speed.

The ApiOmat platform provides both lines of business and IT with the tools to build rapid prototypes in just hours so that they can validate their use cases with less risk than traditional enterprise software development. By decoupling the frontend and backend development and maximizing code reuse and generation, ApiOmat customers have a platform that bridges the gap between systems of record and systems of innovation enabling them to deliver new digital services that differentiate their business from the competition.

On Gartner Peer Insights, a Project Manager about ApiOmat (read the full review here https://www.gartner.com/reviews/review/view/458583):
“We had an excellent experience as ApiOmat Studio early adopters, both with the software and the team behind it. The tool enables us to create apps fast, while providing us with a standard to get the apps integrated with our IT systems. The usage for rapid prototyping was the initiator. Afterwards we extend functionality by professional developers and connected our SAP. As we were early adopters for the ApiOmat Studio part, we did have occasional errors in the software but the ApiOmat Support and Product Management teams solved our problems fast and effectively.”

Companies implementing the ApiOmat benefit from the five core values necessary for being successful in digital transformation:

Rapid Prototyping – lines of business can put together their prototypes or MVP apps together in just hours, collect user feedback and deliver a second iteration before the day is over. Professional developers can easily extend the app’s capabilities with minimal effort thanks to ApiOmat’s frontend and backend SDKs.

Multi-Experience Layer – The number of devices users are interacting with each year is growing and ApiOmat simplifies the process of creating digital services and extending them to additional channels. This makes it easy to start with an app and then roll out chatbots, skills for voice assistants like Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant as well as augmented or virtual reality headsets.

Adaptive Integration – ApiOmat customers ensure they can always access the data necessary with adaptive integration, which allows them to integrate data sources where it is most easily consumed. With ApiOmat’s modular connector system, customers benefit from previous integration initiatives and are also able to cover any remaining gaps quickly.

Digital Governance – To succeed at digital business, companies require a platform to enforce IT governance standards while easily working with their preferred system integrators and development partners. ApiOmat provides a management dashboard for all their digital services with fine granular rights management for organizations and individuals.

User Analytics – Digital success means building solutions and constantly improving them through analytic-driven development. ApiOmat provides advanced front-end analytics for every app and gives product owners insights to their users’ interactions, device information as well as crash reporting and custom in-app events. The 100% of the data remains in the customer’s installation and is GDPR-conform, so the data is never sent off to a third-party provider.
