Enterprise application development tool vendor Appcelerator has rolled out a new offering it calls "the only enterprise SaaS platform built from the ground up for mobile." The Appcelerator platform includes tools for development and testing, as well as providing hosting for apps with built-in analytics.
The new product underscores the growing importance of mobile apps for enterprises. “Mobile often ends up being the primary, and sometimes only, interface that a business’s partners and employees use to interact with the company,” explained Appcelerator CEO Jeff Haynie.
Prices start at $5,000 per user per year for the Starter edition and climb up to $32,000 per user per year for the virtual private cloud option.
