Flex Services Runtime allows enterprises to instantly and securely develop, test, deploy and support sophisticated apps experiences

"We were able to develop, test, and deploy a microservice in a matter of days.” Jim De Sotle, CEO at Novo Holdings

Kinvey, the leading enterprise mobility platform company providing Backend as a Service (BaaS) for the digital enterprise, today announced that it has extended its BaaS platform with the launch of Flex Services Runtime (FSR). FSR is the industry’s first unified node.js platform to run microservices, event-based cloud functions, and zero-code and low-code enterprise integrations to deliver rich application experiences. The serverless platform enables enterprises to instantly and securely develop, test, deploy, and support backend microservices and leverage cloud functions with plug and play execution for any NPM library to deliver rich user experiences, leveraging enterprise security and data systems.

“I needed a way to extract my application data on a continuous basis for reporting purposes. Since the app was on Kinvey, my team was able to develop, test, and deploy a microservice to do this in a matter of days,” said Jim De Sotle, CEO at Novo Holdings. “Our safety app, delivered on Kinvey, is now being actively sold to both SMB and Enterprise customers. Kinvey made the delivery of a complex compliance app easy and quick, enabling me to focus on the business value.”

Kinvey’s new features advance the state of the art in backend application platforms designed for the modern digital experience. Now, rich application experiences can be developed, tested, and deployed quickly and easily using the Kinvey’s Rapid and Flex services. The opportunity for innovation is only limited by the imagination of the developers.

Rapid services are zero-code, configurable modules that instantly enable secure, governed access to enterprise systems of record as well as cloud-based SaaS applications. Flex services are low-code microservices modules that execute functions and enable fast integrations to enterprise systems of record. The BaaS platform provides a complete feature set that includes a Flex SDK for development, a local testing environment, and CLI tools to enable continuous integration and automated deployment. Both Rapid and Flex services come with built-in capabilities for end-user technical support, troubleshooting, and diagnosis capabilities with Kinvey’s Operational Intelligence feature.

“Kinvey’s microservices platform enabled us to deliver a very complex app for an enterprise pilot in less than a month and the foundation will make it easy to take this application from pilot to production,” said Shahab Choudhry, founder and partner at Propelics. ”Leveraging their microservices, we can focus on app features and user experience instead of spending that time on infrastructure, operations, and compliance.”

“A single integrated platform that is truly serverless and combines the flexibility of no-code configuration for standard systems and low-code development for non-standard systems is without parallel in the industry today. It is enabling our customers to focus their spend and resources on innovation and value-added features without being dragged down by legacy architectures,” said Jikku Venkat, Vice President of Product at Kinvey. “Other mobile platform providers such as Amazon, IBM, and Microsoft give developers a bag of parts that customers still need to integrate, scale, and maintain. Kinvey provides a complete, one stop shop for everything customers needs to deliver modern, innovative apps - fast. I believe this is why we are a leader and top ranked in current offering category in The Forrester Wave: Mobile Development Platforms, 4Q 2016.”
