SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Built.io announces the general availability and major updates to Built.io Flow, its award winning integration platform, which for the first time makes enterprise and Internet of Things (IoT) integration attainable for any organization. Built.io Flow allows any developer – and even non-developers – to connect software, systems, sensors and devices. Anything with a digital heartbeat and an API can now participate in automating business processes, boost the capabilities of mobile applications and enable faster innovation across the business.
Several marquee customers, such as YouTube and the NBA's Sacramento Kings, are already relying on Built.io Flow to power a new generation of connected experiences and ecosystems. The Kings, for example, are assembling best-in-class technology in preparation of the unveiling of their new arena, billed as the smartest building on the planet. They needed a technology platform that was both robust and nimble enough to seamlessly integrate cutting edge hardware and software components and to significantly enhance the fan experience. They chose Built.io Flow.
The release introduces a long list of key enhancements, including:
- Triggers for applications initiate workflows across unlimited, connected systems
- Live Trigger Visualization allows developers to test, debug and run automated, realtime workflows
- Built.io Flow's Enterprise Gateway securely connects firewalled systems to cloud and web-based services, as well the burgeoning world of mobile and IoT
- A revamped, intuitive visual designer instantly creates sophisticated workflows that orchestrate and automate complex business processes
- The Advanced API Builder allows developers to author, combine, wrap and abstract multiple API calls into one single call
- Several hundred pre-configured, out-of-the-box connectors to popular enterprise software packages, such as Salesforce, Marketo and Zendesk
Built.io Flow operates entirely in the cloud – from design to deployment – without requiring setup, installation or configuration of local software components.
Built.io Flow captures the imagination of integration experts: "Companies have been waiting for a new class of on-demand integration platforms," said Maribel Lopez, Founder and Principal Analyst, Lopez Research. "Cloud-based Integration-as-a-Service not only significantly lowers the barrier towards integration, it fundamentally changes the game for companies creating tomorrow's right-time experiences."
With the release of its integration platform Built.io Flow alongside its mobile Backend-as-a-Service (mBaaS), Aragon Research was also quick to name Built.io a "2015 Hot Vendor."
"Built.io Flow is the perfect complement to Built.io Backend, our flagship enterprise mBaaS," said Neha Sampat. "With Built.io Backend, the most innovative organizations create powerful applications for web, mobile and IoT and now, with Built.io Flow, they can easily connect these applications to all the systems that matter."
