Apprenda

Why Apprenda?

Apprenda is a leading enterprise cloud platform powering the next generation of enterprise software development in public, private and hybrid clouds.

As a foundational software layer and application run-time environment, Apprenda abstracts away the complexities of building and delivering modern software applications, enabling enterprises to turn ideas into innovations more quickly.

With Apprenda, enterprises can securely deliver an entire ecosystem of data, services, applications and APIs to both internal and external customers across any infrastructure. From the world’s largest banks like JPMorgan Chase to healthcare organizations including McKesson, Apprenda’s clients are part of a new class of software-defined enterprises, disrupting industries and winning with software.

Conceptually, Apprenda parallels the operating system or the modern day application server; it defines a concrete layer that “sits below” your application and acts as a host for your application. As a hosting layer, Apprenda manages network resources while providing an environment that allows your application to function as a service offering even if it wasn’t written as one. Furthermore, very much like your operating system might provide you a control panel, Apprenda provides a variety of tools via the web to interact with your deployed application.

Apprenda’s core competency is in building powerful Platform as a Service (“PaaS”) technology. Apprenda is a new breed of cloud middleware that is licensed and installed on your own hardware, co-location space, cloud infrastructure, or any combination of infrastructure resources. Apprenda stitches your infrastructure resources together, creating a highly resilient peer-to-peer fabric.

Market Opportunity

Gartner named Apprenda an early leader for private cloud enabled application platforms (“CEAP”), a new category with a potential annual market opportunity of up to $4 billion. CEAP provides PaaS functionality as a software product, allowing an enterprise to write to a platform that can be deployed in-house on their servers or externally on another vendor’s cloud.
