Apps Associates Enables Fast-responding Digital Businesses
Fast delivery of the right solutions for new business opportunities
“Apps Associates is a software services company offering consulting, advisory services, and business transformation for digitalization,” says Pandu Prudhvi, practice director for integration and custom development. “We strategize integration roadmaps and work with multiple offerings to enable cloud platforms, big data analytics, and Internet of Things use cases.
“Our customers need to respond to business demands and get an edge over competitors using IT, so the solutions we provide have to be very flexible, scalable, extensible, and easy to adapt to their business demands. Our business goal is to help them reduce cost by providing the right kind of solution using managed service offerings, and by increasing operational efficiency. We want to become a company that is indispensible to their business, data, and IT models.”
“Some of my customers are trying to understand the value that APIs bring to their business, and most operate in a siloed environment,” continues Mr. Prudhvi, “so when it comes to releasing new product capabilities or getting a 360-degree of the customer, it’s very hard for them. They spend a lot of time working with manual processes. With the help of API management, I can introduce different APIs and orchestrate new service offerings.
“One of the biggest differentiators TIBCO has compared to other middleware vendors is the cloud-first strategy, the model the TIBCO® Cloud Integration platform is built on. It’s so easy that a less experienced developer can build the integration and connect the source and target systems. Compared to other middleware platforms, the developer productivity improvements we are seeing are very, very significant—between 20 to 35%.
“Typically, we enable core business processes hosted on-premises, and transform them using APIs managed in the cloud with TIBCO Mashery® . We manage all the API analytics through Mashery.”
New Business Opportunities
“Using TIBCO Cloud Integration, Apps Associates is seeing new business opportunities,” says Prudhvi. “It’s a flexible solution, and it’s really helping us develop, build, and deploy integrations in a scalable way. We are driving our bottom line with an API-centric service offering that is launching new products and services for our customers. It delivers significant improvements and a faster platform for their businesses. For digitalization engagements, we’ve been working with different customers to expose the APIs that enable their business processes as well as Internet of Things applications and big data analytics. We’re kind of indispensable to our customers.”
Stability and Reliability
“The impact we’re having with the TIBCO Cloud Integration platform is fast automation of our customers’ end-to-end business processes, from quote to order or quote to cash. It’s a very stable platform. We’ve never had any issues,” says Prudhvi.
Fast Delivery of the Right Solutions
“Most of our customers are seeing greater agility with the TIBCO Cloud Integration platform,” Mr. Prudhvi says. “Our IT integrations are so fast, they can respond to accommodate business demands very easily. From the product lifecycle management perspective, we can release new service offerings around their products very quickly and easily. We also see tremendous improvements in data operational efficiencies. They can be more responsive to their customers, which impacts their position in the market. We support their IT ecosystem and business processes, while they focus on their core businesses.”
“With the help of TIBCO Cloud Integration, our customers in the Life Sciences and Healthcare industries are expecting to leave their siloed environments and bring new service offerings across their lines of business. They are also seeing the benefits of APIs, so I think they will soon be asking us for these services, as well.”
