Techvibes has been tracking Kryos Velocity for a couple of years, and it's always great to see a company that is continuously inventing itself as it's success grows. Here's the post from last July on the launch of their Android version.
The Velocity 2 release adds HTML5 to the Android and Blackberry versions; it also runs on tablets such as the new PlayBook 2.0 and iPad. There's a lot more to the Velocity 2 launch. A full version of the press release can be found on the Seattle Post Intelligencer.
In conjunction with the launch of their new website, Kryos announced Velocity 2 yesterday - by using an “interpreted-not-compiled” architecture, the new Velocity 2 XML Cross-Platform Mobile Development tool allows Enterprises to easily create robust internal and client-facing mobile apps in weeks, not months.
“We’ve been in the business of building platforms for enterprises for over 15 years, and the last 4 have been about defining the leading edge of enterprise mobile development,” states Trevor Nimegeers, CEO and Founder. “We’ve learned what enterprises truly value in mobile development platforms. Velocity 2 is the culimination of all our efforts and delivers on many fronts – it’s a significant milestone for us, and for our customers.”
Other items of note:
- Velocity is currently licensed for deployment on over 25,000 enterprise and client mobile devices
- Velocity also launched the Velocity Developer Network (vDev) providing resources and community tools for developers
- They've introduced per device subscription pricing; from $12 per month to $4 per month depending on number of enterprise and client devices are using the flexClient app
- They've also introduced a "free forever" version of Velocity for teams of 5 or less people -- a great way for enterprise developers to try before you buy; and it could be a useful tool in the hands of small business owners.
Enterprise mobility is hot and the largest single investment of IT departments -- 41% of enterprises worldwide are increasing their mobile application investments (Aberdeen Research), with another 30% currently evaluating. Kryos is in a good spot!
