Appcelerator Acquires Aptana

Cloud-connected mobile application opportunity for over 1,500,000 web developers

"We are excited to introduce Aptana’s millions of developers to the mobile innovation wave that we have been riding and supporting as a company over the past two years," said Jeff Haynie (pictured), CEO of Appcelerator, as Appcelerator this week announced its acquisition of Aptana, the leading integrated development environment (IDE) for building web applications.

“We have always focused on enabling the best possible native application experience,” Haynie, continued, adding:

"This announcement furthers that vision by empowering our growing community of developers to build, test, and deploy native, cloud-connected mobile applications faster and with higher quality than ever before."

Appcelerator is considered to lead the industry in cross-platform development, with tens of millions of users using over 10,000 native iOS, Android and desktop applications. In addition, with over 3,000 APIs in its flagship product, Appcelerator Titanium, the company also offers what it believes is the deepest set of capabilities available of any development platform on the market.

As part of the acquisition, the entire Aptana team has joined Appcelerator to continue building out the company’s platform and tools. The Aptana acquisition is aimed at moving Appcelerator to the next level by extending the capabilities of its popular development platform to include world-class development tools that significantly improve developer productivity, integration and cloud connectivity.

"The combination of both companies’ brands, products, and developer bases create a huge opportunity for the next generation of web and mobile apps," commented Douglas Schrier from Rembrandt Venture Partners.

Appcelerator plans to integrate support for its mutual customer base and combined developer community over the coming months.

Concerns about security, downtime and latency, budgets, and general unfamiliarity with cloud technologies continue to create hesitation for many organizations that truly need to be developing a cloud strategy. Hybrid cloud solutions are helping to elevate those concerns by enabling the combination or orchestration of two or more platforms, including on-premise infrastructure, private clouds and/or third-party, public cloud services. This gives organizations more comfort to begin their digital transformation without a complete overhaul of their existing infrastructure - serving as a sort of "missing link" for transition to cloud utilization.
