Gartner recognises Kony as a leader for mobile app development platforms

19 Jun 2017

Digital applications and enterprise mobility company Kony announced that it has been named a leader of mobile application development platform providers by Gartner research.

Kony is the only vendor recognised by Gartner as a leader for five consecutive years and was positioned the furthest for completeness of vision. 

It serves more than 250 million mobile app users worldwide every day and manages more than 3.4 billion user sessions annually.

“We are proud of our track record of success and continued leadership,” says Kony chairman and chief executive officer Thomas E. Hogan.

“Mobile is what we do and all we do.

"We believe our fifth straight year as a leader in the Gartner Mobile App Development Platforms Magic Quadrant is an important validation of that commitment.”

According to Gartner, leaders in this Magic Quadrant “must represent a strong combination of ability to execute and completeness of vision.”

In the MADP sector, this means that leaders not only are good at cross-platform development, deployment and management across the full life cycle, but also have a good vision of the multichannel enterprise, support for multiple architectures and standards, a solid understanding of IT requirements, and scalable channels and partnerships leaders must provide platforms that are easy to purchase, program, deploy and upgrade, and which can connect to a range of systems of records and third-party cloud services.”

The Kony AppPlatform is an open and standards-based, integrated platform for mobile app development and beyond.

It supports the entire application software development lifecycle (SDLC) and operations (DevOps) lifecycle, empowering enterprises to quickly design, build, deploy, and manage omnichannel app experiences.

This DevOps solution encompasses unique app user interface design and development tools (Kony Visualizer), powered by Kony’s mobile backend-as-a-service (MBaaS), API Management and backend application development offering (Kony MobileFabric).

It extends fully to the Line of Business through the addition of Kony AppVantage, which allow customers to rapidly obtain secure, enterprise-grade apps as an end-to-end managed service.
