Our Backend as a Service Product – BaaS i.e. App42 Cloud API offering was actually developed the last but was released first. We had already developed a long product line and waited for quite some time. The idea of Backend as a Service came to us way back in 2010 when there were hardly any providers in this space and we had created a prototype for it then. We also sold our API infrastructure and security framework to one of the largest IaaS companies in india on license. We decided to complete and release the App42 Cloud APIs first. But thats what happens as an entrepreneur one has to be agile and take decisions based on how the market moves.
Using over 300+ Shephertz App42 Cloud APIs one can develop engaging and connected apps in a very short time. The time to market, cost and effort reduced drastically.
We support all popular platforms i.e. iOS, Android, Windows Phone 7, Symbian, java, C#, Ruby, PHP, Groovy, REST etc. HTML5 developers can use our server side libraries i.e. for PHP, Ruby, Groovy for Grails, Java and C#.
We provide around 300+ APIs which comprises of technical and business services. Around 18 modules which covers the length and breadth of App development. You will hardly require any Sever side Business logic code. If you dont find any API you can use our generic Technical Services e.g. Storage, Queue and Message, File Upload to implement them.
As mentioned in my earlier blog we have taken a ecosystem approach. All our other products on the cloud i.e. AppHawk – Project and Issue Management and Collaboration Tool helps App developers to manage their Apps during development and post launch. There will be many more offerings which will enable an App developer to become successful in future.
Along with App42 Cloud APIs for Gaming i.e. Scoring, Rating, Leaderboard and Shephertz AppWarp – A Massive Multiplayer Gaming & Virtual World Platform one can develop simple to complex Multiplayer Gaming apps on the cloud.
You can manage your App and all its related data using our App42 Management Console
