API Framework Arrow Has Powered 11 Million Cloud API Calls Since April, Expects to Surpass 20 Million by December
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA—(Marketwired – Aug 19, 2015) – Appcelerator® today announced significant traction of its mobile engagement platform and mobile ecosystem since the launch of an on-demand delivery model in April. The company garnered more than 50,000 signups in the first three months of availability for its Appcelerator Platform 4.0, which includes Appcelerator Arrow™, a powerful new framework for building and running mobile-optimized APIs. The company also announced new developer and ecosystem milestones, including processing a record number of cloud API calls and analytics events, as well as powering mobile apps on a record number of devices and app stores.
“Appcelerator continues to justify our investment in their platform,” said Mike Baca, Director of AmerisourceBergen’s Mobility Center of Excellence (MCOE). “Their technology has been the catalyst for the productivity and growth of our MCOE, and their continuous innovation as evidenced with their Arrow offering will yield additional productivity gains as we leverage it for our enterprise integration needs.”
Appcelerator debuted Arrow in early April to simplify one of the largest challenges in mobile development — connecting to and orchestrating data from a wide range of backend sources, including enterprise systems like Salesforce and Microsoft SQL Server — enabling developers to build great mobile experiences faster. The offering was unveiled alongside a new on-demand model enabling organizations of any size, from independent developers to large enterprises, to gain instant access to all the capabilities needed to build, test, connect and measure their mobile apps.
Since April, Appcelerator has hit a variety of business and customer benchmarks. They include:
- Six-figure revenue from the new on-demand offering within the first six weeks of availability;
- 50,000+ signups for the Appcelerator Platform, averaging 2,000+ per week;
- 1.4 billion analytics events processed in Q2 2015;
- 11 million API calls to the Platform’s dashboard in June alone, representing a 1,000-percent uptick in customer usage per month since the beginning of April; and
- A 75-percent increase in new logos since Q1 2015, including a major supermarket chain, Crown Equipment Corporation, and the UAE’s Ministry of Finance.
