giant-slayer-600x450BOOM! Kinvey the Giant Slayer

We are honored to be top ranked, higher than any other vendor, for their current offering in The Forrester Wave: Mobile Development Platforms, 4Q2016. The other vendors include IBM, Oracle, AWS, Red Hat, Microsoft, SAP, Salesforce and more…a “Who’s Who” in the enterprise software arena.

Of course, we have been at it longer than all of these companies, so it’s only logical that we have the most mature and full-featured platform, but it’s fantastic to have it validated by a reputable third party.

A couple of key highlights from the The Forrester Wave™ report:

  1. Kinvey is the only vendor that has gone up in product score and to the right in strategy, while our competitors have regressed with their technologies, or continue to play catch-up with Kinvey (compared to 2015, albeit slightly different criteria).
  1. Kinvey’s current offering has been ranked higher than the ALL the large IT vendors in our space — which is almost unheard of in a Forrester Wave or Gartner Magic Quadrant.

We are honored to have some of the largest and most respected enterprises and healthcare providers run their mission critical apps on Kinvey including VMware, Farmers Insurance, Bell & Howell, Holder Corporation, JW Aluminum, Schneider Electric, Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals, Sanofi and many more. We are equally as proud to have entire new digital businesses run on Kinvey like Hello Tractor, Glamsquad, iTether and 75F.

Customer references play a large part in validating the platform capabilities. I would like to personally thank our customers for taking the time to speak with Forrester and also thank the Kinvey customer success team for their commitment to each and every customer. As stated by the Forrester analysts “Customers we interviewed spoke highly of Kinvey and consider them a partner, not a vendor. One reference told us, ‘We work with many vendors, but Kinvey is one of the very few partners we have.’ The accolades were equally high when customers spoke about the company’s solution architecture team.’” This is incredible!

As highlighted in the report, “One customer stated that Kinvey isn’t its mobile Backend-as-a-Service, but its enterprise Backend-as-a-Service.”

Over the past year, Kinvey has doubled down on our commitment to our customers to innovate better and faster than any other vendor in the Mobile Development Platform space and the Wave results recognize this – the entire Kinvey team is energized and ready to make an even bigger positive impact for our customers in 2017.

The evaluation process for The Forrester Wave: Mobile Development Platform, 4Q 2016 included vendor surveys, customer reference calls, in-depth product demos and an executive strategy briefing.
