At Apprenda, we’re finding that our focus on the enterprise and its needs is becoming an obvious differentiator in the market. Apprenda’s independence allows us to integrate with the customers’ enterprise stack (not some add-on product) while our deep focus on .NET and Java give more capabilities to organizations’ frameworks.
Rene Hermes, General Manager at Apprenda, has been establishing Apprenda in Europe. One company he’s engaged with is a European enterprise with over €20 Billion (EU) in revenue. It has spent over ten years building a Java PaaS equipped with many bells and whistles born from practical need. Even though they have had an internal PaaS for a decade, it has exploded in popularity recently. Where people used to be afraid to use a shared platform, they now flock to it for the agility and cost benefits. However, it is expensive and complicated to develop and maintain.

Hearing these stories is great because it shows that we truly have a great product-market fit. From SaaS enablement of apps to private enterprise PaaS, Apprenda fits exactly what our customers need to help bridge their existing approach to IT and software development to a modern view of the data center.
