CHANDLER, Ariz., Jan. 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- appsFreedom, the Model-Driven, Enterprise App Development Platform for Citizen Developers, has been named by Gartner as a representative vendor in their recent Gartner's Market Guide for Rapid Mobile App Development Tools by Richard Marshall, Nick Jones & Jason Wong, published on 19th Nov 2014.
"appsFreedom is the most advanced platform available that uses a model-driven approach to create enterprise apps in days, not months," remarked Vaidy Iyer, Founder and CEO of appsFreedom. "This simplifies the development cycle and enables the Citizen Developer community to build apps directly from business processes rather than long hours of coding. appsFreedom's revolutionary BaaS (Backend as a Service) ensures the integration to the back-end systems is real time and uncomplicated."
appsFreedom was born from the idea that enterprises are often surprisingly inefficient at developing business-ready mobile apps. With its visual, drag-and-drop interface, the platform doesn't require programming expertise; instead, users only need business knowledge and a problem-solving mindset to develop complex, secure, scalable and multi-platform apps. Among those ideally positioned to make the most of the platform are business analysts, IT analysts, IT Developers and business subject matter experts. appsFreedom enables Citizen Developers to manage the complete app lifecycle while integrating cloud and on-premise applications.
The tangible value of appsFreedom shines through in the tremendous time and cost savings made possible by the platform. When enterprise apps can be developed and launched in days rather than weeks, organizations can deploy human and technological resources far more efficiently. Likewise, when Citizen Developers who are closest to specific business problems can take ownership of solving those problems, the entire organization reaps the benefits. We believe Gartner's research has zeroed in on speed, efficiency and business problem solving as key factors in rapid mobile app development, and feel that appsFreedom meets all of those criteria.
"In a typical organization, the IT department faces an uphill task in keeping up with the growing pressure to mobilize the workforce. Building and deploying enterprise apps at a rapid pace is a paramount need – speedy development enables organizations to keep up with the competition and to be agile in making decisions," Iyer added.
