Kony AppPlatform V8 Released
August 08, 2017

Kony announced a new release of its Kony AppPlatform offering. With its new V8 release, Kony is aiming to help not only professional developers meet ever increasing demand for apps, but also citizen developers within organizations design, develop and deliver omnichannel apps fast by significantly simplifying the app development and deployment process.

A recent Wakefield Research survey, sponsored by Kony, found that 98 percent of the 1000 business leaders who responded to the study noted their company would benefit from specific types of mobile apps. However, challenges of app development and management remain the biggest obstacles.

“Businesses are struggling to get ahead of the demands of an increasingly digital client base, workforce and business environment,” said Burley Kawasaki, EVP of Products at Kony, Inc. “In order to truly realize the potential of a digital business, companies need technologies that empower stakeholders throughout their organization to quickly and easily design and build apps, without having to rely on scarce professional developer resources. Our latest V8 version of Kony AppPlatform addresses this need, by speeding and simplifying the process of app design, development and delivery, and ensuring the app does not compromise user experiences and is future proofed to take advantage of new, emerging technologies, such as chatbots and IoT.”
