NEW YORK, Feb. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Appboy, the world's most innovative and fastest-growing company in App Marketing Automation, announces today that its platform will now support Windows devices. Developers and mobile marketers can expect the same full-featured set of services available to other platforms, with the ability to use Appboy for both desktop and mobile apps. The launch distinguishes Appboy as one of the few mobile solutions that provides comprehensive support for both Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8, and marks the first time the platform can be used natively on desktops.
The news comes at an opportune moment, as the Windows App Store continues its rapid growth – passing 200,000 apps and 250 million downloads at the end of 2013 – and the Windows community gears up for Build, Microsoft's annual developer event in April. Windows Phone devices in particular have seen extraordinary growth in emerging markets, with the latest numbers revealing that the Windows Phone outsold the iPhone in 24 countries around the world, including India, Egypt and South Africa.
Appboy's support for the Windows OS will mark the dramatic expansion of its network, introducing Appboy's app marketing automation services to millions of Windows devices. A new community of developers and marketers can now take advantage of Appboy's functionalities to help engage and maintain user loyalty, which is crucial in an increasingly competitive marketplace where 46% of users stop using an app after the first month.
In addition to being marketer friendly, Appboy has strived to make integration easy by publishing its internal libraries to NuGet. Developers can therefore integrate Appboy with minimal work and manual setup, making it simple to get up and running. By accommodating 16 push notification types alongside the rest of the platform's features, marketers are poised to make their apps an integral part of their users' daily experience. In addition, Appboy and Nokia will soon partner to highlight Appboy's services on DVLUP, a rewards program that helps developers become more successful.
"We are thrilled to add Windows to the growing list of platforms we support, including iOS, Android and Unity," says Appboy CEO/Co-Founder Mark Ghermezian. "We are proud to be able to provide our one-of-a-kind app marketing automation solution to help manage mobile audiences across any platform with great ease."
Appboy's support for the Windows platform follows on the heels of several exciting advances at the company over the past few months, from the raising of $7.6M in venture funding to the launch of an enhanced Marketing Automation Dashboard. With mobile growth skyrocketing faster than ever at the start of 2014, Appboy leads the way in accelerating that growth through its commitment to state-of-the-art services in App Marketing Automation.
Appboy is the leading platform for App Marketing Automation. The company enables the world's brightest companies to manage the lifecycle of their users through a suite of marketing automation products and Success Squad team of mobile experts. In addition to user segmentation and location targeting, Appboy offers multi-channel messaging (push notifications, in-app messages, email), an in-app news feed and in-app customer support. Clients like Text+, Urban Outfitters, GSN and PopSci use Appboy to increase engagement, reduce churn and build their mobile ROI. To learn more, visit www.appboy.com.

A critical component of any IoT project is the back-end systems that capture data from remote IoT devices and structure it in a way to answer useful questions. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle large data sets, but they are not well suited to many IoT-scale products and the need for real-time insights. At Fuze, we have developed a backend platform as part of our mobility-oriented cloud service that uses Big Data-based approache...

As the rapid adoption of containers continues, companies are finding that they lack the operational tools to understand the behavior of applications deployed in these containers, and how to identify issues in their application infrastructure. For example, how are multiple containers within an application impacting each other’s performance? If an application’s service is degraded, which container is to blame? In the case of an application outage, what was the root cause of the outage?

When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT's direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...
