Progress Acquires Kinvey, the Leader in Backend as a Service (BaaS) Technology - on DefenceBriefing.net

Progress (NASDAQ-NMS: PRGS) today announced it has acquired Kinvey, a privately-held company based in Boston and leader in Backend as a Service (BaaS) technology. This acquisition is a key part of the Progress strategy to provide the best platform to build and deliver modern cognitive-first applications. Today’s news comes on the heels of the company’s acquisition in March of machine learning and predictive analytics vendor, DataRPM.



“Kinvey was an early pioneer in the BaaS space and brought to market a leading-edge solution that enables developers to operate a serverless and compliant cloud backend for any native, hybrid, web or IoT app,” said Yogesh Gupta, CEO, Progress. “By bringing together Kinvey’s leading Backend as a Service with our front-end development, predictive analytics and data connectivity technologies, we are doing something unique; we are offering customers the only complete, open stack for building and deploying cognitive applications.”

Kinvey is used by organizations across industries to build and deploy modern applications including, Schneider Electric, VMware, Bell and Howell, and Thomas Jefferson University and Jefferson Health. From mission-critical consumer and business experiences for global insurance, manufacturing and media companies, to HIPAA-compliant and life-critical apps for healthcare, health implant manufacturers and pharma, Kinvey powers more than 31,000 apps, used by more than 100 million end-users. Kinvey’s BaaS serves more than 10 billion API calls a month and was named a leader and top ranked in the current offering category in “The Forrester Wave™: Mobile Development Platforms, Q4 2016.”

Progress was recently named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Mobile App Development Platforms. By pairing Kinvey’s best-of-breed backend platform with Progress’ front-end technologies, including NativeScript, Kendo UI and Telerik, plus predictive analytics, rules engine, and data connectivity technologies, Progress now provides the best end-to-end solution to build and deliver mission-critical applications. Kinvey’s strength in compliance, security, performance, reliability and scalability make it consistent with Progress’ continued focus on mission-critical business applications. The integration of Kinvey with Progress’ NativeScript and DataDirect data connectivity products is generally available today.

“Using Kinvey as our backend platform and Progress frontend tools like Kendo UI, we have transformed our construction management process from paper to 100% digital,” said Bryant King, Chief Information Officer, Holder Construction. “Given that we’re a customer of both already, the combination of Kinvey and the Progress stack makes perfect sense. Progress is bringing the right technologies to help us continue to deliver the mission-critical information and resources necessary to keep pace with an ever-changing business environment.”

“The acquisition of Kinvey adds a key strength to Progress’ app development portfolio,” said Denise Lund, research director, Enterprise Mobility at IDC. “Together with its DataRPM assets, Progress is quickly becoming a formidable competitor in the intelligent apps development market.”

“At Kinvey, we pride ourselves on providing an unparalleled developer and operational experience for building and deploying modern applications, while staying ahead of the feature curve to support our customers as they think of innovations for their digital business,” said Sravish Sridhar, Founder & CEO, Kinvey. “Cognitive-first is the future of new application experiences, and we are thrilled to join Progress as a core component of their leading product portfolio for delivering on this future for our customers.”

Progress acquired Kinvey for a purchase price of $49 million in cash.

Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr LLP served as Progress' legal counsel and Cooley LLP served as Kinvey’s legal counsel with respect to the transaction. Union Square Advisors LLC served as Kinvey’s financial advisor with respect to the transaction.
