Embarcadero Launches Appmethod, a Full Featured App Dev Platform to Address Multi-Device, Mobile Developer Challenges

Utilising a Single Codebase and Proven Development Methodology, Appmethod Allows Developers to Build Multi-Device Applications up to 20 Times Faster

Maidenhead, UK - March 18, 2014

News Summary
Embarcadero Technologies, a leading provider of software solutions for application and database development, today announced the launch of Appmethod.

With more devices, more platforms and more form factors to support, today's app developers are under mounting pressure to quickly deliver new apps that support a myriad of platforms and devices, including smartphones, tablets and PCs/laptops. Appmethod is a full featured component-based application development platform designed for developers and enterprises that need to quickly build apps across multiple platforms for today's connected world.

News Facts

  • Embarcadero's new Appmethod changes the way apps are built for today's multi-device world. Offering a full set of technology, features, and functionality, Appmethod provides an end-to-end solution for delivering fast, modern multi-device apps for Android, iOS, Windows and OS X in a highly productive way.

  • Appmethod vastly streamlines multi-device development efforts, allowing developers to create applications for all major platforms with one effort and one codebase — crucial for both major enterprises and today's lean startups trying to develop the next big app. Developers can create apps 5 to 20 times faster than other tools on the market today, drastically reducing overall development costs.

  • Unlike other solutions on the market, Appmethod does not require runtime javascript interpreters (or virtual machines) and is truly native; the apps it compiles run directly on the CPU. These native applications are fast, fluid and responsive, and deliver the uncompromised user experience necessary for app adoption.

  • Appmethod's Enterprise Mobility Services provide point-and-click mobile middleware connectivity to RESTful cloud services, data and API hosting, and enterprise database connectors such as Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, IBM DB2, Informix, and more, to easily integrate data from any source.

  • Extremely easy-to-use and install, Appmethod's Enterprise Mobility Services do not require an IT department to facilitate deployment; rather a developer can download Appmethod and immediately start to build modern applications with an industrial-grade solution

Pricing and Availability

  • Appmethod is available today at: www.appmethod.com.

  • Appmethod is offered in annual subscriptions. Individuals will be able to purchase Appmethod for $299 per year, per developer, per platform. Enterprises can purchase Appmethod for $999 per year, per developer, per platform. Enterprise Mobility Services pricing is based on the number of devices utilising the services.

Supporting Quotes

  • "We were especially impressed with the IDE and built-in design capabilities of Appmethod," said Branden Spikes, CEO of one of the companies betting on Appmethod, Spikes Security. The company is focused on delivering secure, scalable, high performance software solutions that enable businesses to safely leverage the web without fear of cyber attacks. "Normally, we would have needed to use a different code base for each of the platforms that we support, but having a single code-base with Appmethod allows us to get our apps out much faster than expected."

  • "Appmethod addresses what we see as major pain points for today's multi-device developers," said Al Hilwa, IDC. "It is a full featured client, middleware, and backend services API platform that combines the business benefits of a single source codebase and the performance benefits of compiled code."

  • "Development teams are under tremendous pressure today to deliver applications across many different devices and form factors. Appmethod is a game changer for developers. It increases their effective programming throughput up to 20x over platform vendor tools," said Michael Swindell, senior vice president of products at Embarcadero Technologies. "Utilising Appmethod's cross-platform component APIs, developers can rapidly write complex and high performance compiled mobile and desktop clients, with database access, cloud access, and enterprise interoperability across multiple platforms, all without sacrificing capability or performance."

Docker offers a new, lightweight approach to application portability. Applications are shipped using a common container format and managed with a high-level API. Their processes run within isolated namespaces that abstract the operating environment independently of the distribution, versions, network setup, and other details of this environment.

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside.
