AVAI Mobile Solutions, based in Austin, has announced a version of its AMP™ mobile application content management platform for the enterprise market. AMP enables enterprises to avoid the high cost and risk associated with custom app development and versioning by leveraging a proven platform as a service.
“We are announcing AMP Enterprise to address a very clear need among mid to large enterprises for a scalable yet customizable mobile app development platform which eliminates the need for custom development on every project,” says Rand Arnold, CEO of AVAI Mobile. “AMP Enterprise is an extension to our popular Cloud-based AMP™ solution already being successfully used as a development platform for our channel partners.”
According to a Q1 2013 Mobile Enterprise Report from Appcelerator, 44% of enterprise respondents surveyed said they plan to develop between 2 – 5 apps in 2013, while some plan to build as many as 20. The report notes that largest obstacle facing Enterprise is a scarcity of mobile development resources. AMP provides 80% of the solution, dramatically reducing the custom development required. Using AMP means enterprises can fast start mobile apps without having to hire a team of expensive programmers, or outsource mobile development.
AMP is available as a licensed platform allowing customers to host on internal servers, or bundled as a cloud based Platform-as-a-service (PaaS). Because AMP comes as a pre-built platform with easy customization tools, mobile apps can be created in a fraction of the time – and for significantly less money – than the average custom-developed app.
“AVAI Mobile’s AMP Platform allowed us to communicate the latest updates of our products and specifications more efficiently with our team and partners,” says John Hewson, Residential Solutions Marketing Manager for Lutron Electronics Co., Inc.
