Boston-based app management system Apperian announced on Wednesday that it has surpassed 1 million enterprise app downloads while reporting shattering growth numbers.
The local firm, whose platform helps companies securely manage their mobile apps, more than doubled its year-over-year new business bookings in the second quarter of this year, and surpassed its first half 2013 bookings by more than 85 percent. This trend continues after impressive 2013 year-end growth announced in February.
Apperian also added more clients and partners to its roster than any other previous quarter. While not specifically named, the partnership and client deals included a branch of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, a branch of the U.S. Armed Forces and an international pharmaceutical corporation. The company also expanded partnership relationships with major brands including Dell, IBM, and McAfee in order to help the company deepen its presence in strategic markets.
This past April, Apperian opened its entire API in order to allow companies to leverage and extend their own enterprise infrastructure on top of the Apperian platform. The company aims to keep their platform open to extend ties with more technology .
The huge success of the company can be attributed to the increasing need for mobility in the enterprise and Apperian’s ability to offer that service, CFO at Apperian Brian Day said in a press release:
There’s a significant shift in the market around mobility in the enterprise right now and Apple and IBM’s recent decision to work together to create business apps validates the shifting emphasis from devices to mobile apps in the enterprise. The fact that we’ve served as the engine behind more than one million enterprise app downloads speaks volumes about the adoption of our technology and its value in the enterprise.
