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.

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value extensible storage infrastructure has in accelerating software development activities, improve code quality, reveal multiple deployment options through automated testing, and support continuous integration efforts. All this will be described using tools common in DevOps organizations.
