In the event you missed the news last week, we were very happy to see Gartner’s latest Magic Quadrant for Mobile Application Development Platforms. In the much-reviewed, officially-approved words:
Appcelerator Named “Visionary” Company with Highest Placement for Vision and Execution in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Mobile Application Development Platforms.
We weren’t permitted to add exclamation points in the press release, so I’m doing it here: !!!
As you probably know, each year companies kill themselves trying to secure this kind of accolade in a Gartner Magic Quadrant. Gartner Magic Quadrants are like “America’s Got Talent” for enterprise software. These findings speak volumes for the innovative ideas contributed by our vast developer community, and for all the mobile leadership demonstrated by our customers. Truly a shared accomplishment.
We’re inhabiting a software world that’s very different from the one most of us grew up in. How so?
- Mobile apps run on a much wider range of devices and operating systems than we ever saw in the heyday of web browsers.
- They require connection to a multitude of data sources both inside and outside the enterprise.
- They’re enhanced on a more frequent basis, which means automation everywhere is crucial and…
- User expectations for usability and performance are sky high. (Long gone are the old jokes about “user error.” Say “user error” now and the user just deletes your app.)
With the Appcelerator Platform, we aim to lead in this new software world – and we’re pleased to see folks like Gartner feel we’re ahead of the game!
