Numbers Speak Louder than Words: Staggering Growth in Enterprise App Downloads

July 24, 2014

Testament to the flourishing mobile apps for the enterprise market is Apperian, Inc., who since 2009 has aided in the customer downloading of over one million applications via its mobile app management platform.

Apperian, Inc. is a cloud-based solution that facilitates a privately branded enterprise app store for its users. Serving to secure, distribute, and manage these apps, Apperian’s success is such that since Q2 2014, its year-to-year new business bookings have more than doubled, eclipsing the first half of 2013’s bookings by a staggering 85 percent.

Brian Day, CFO at Apperian, sees an inevitable shift from device to mobile apps taking place in the enterprise market, an opinion well backed by Apple and IBM’s recent decision to partner.

"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,” Day asserts. “Apperian's consistent and aggressive growth is a reflection of increasing customer and partner momentum that's resulted in a 400 percent surge in our pipeline and there are no expectations of slow down any time soon.”

Apperian is certainly in a momentous state of expanding flux, having added more partner and client relations to its inventory in Q2 2014 than any quarter previous. Emphasizing Apperian’s pan-enterprise vertical application is its long and diverse list of new partners, including many national retail chains and brands, big name tech companies, an international pharmaceutical corporation, and even a branch of both the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. armed forces.

"With Apperian, our company is able to apply and manage security policies for our enterprise apps while still adhering to our BYOD culture," explains Robert Lacis, Director of Field Enablement at Maxim Integrated Products. "We don't require an MDM approach because we can provide security and drive adoption of critical apps through Apperian's seamless experience all while respecting our users' privacy."

The company’s emphasis and aptitude for optimal security conditions is well bespoken by the fact that the United States Government has chosen them for their mobile application needs.

Displaying rapid growth in a rapidly growing market marks Apperian as one to watch in the coming months, and certainly one to consider for your future enterprise mobile app needs.
