“Businesses across the globe and spanning literally every industry are fast realizing that we’re in a world gone mobile,” said Jeff Haynie, CEO of Appcelerator. “Where companies once thought the web tools of the past decade were ‘good enough,’ many are now awake to the fact that mobile is changing the technology stack in fundamental ways. Our successful 2014 is proof that enterprises are entering this post-web world with eyes wide open, looking to engage employees and customers with great experiences on the devices they care about most.”
