Apiomat: Achieved considerable success
Founded by Marcel Etzel, it all started with five mobile professionals in Jena, before they moved their headquarters to Leipzig in 2013. At present, the ApiOmat employs around 45 people and has achieved considerable success. Notably, in 2018, the international IT analyst Gartner listed the platform for the first time in the renowned report, Gartner Magic Quadrant for “Mobile App Development Platforms.”
Changes with the new merger!
The ApiOmat founders will remain in management roles and as shareholders in the newly formed company. From the EASY SOFTWARE AG, Marcel Rosenbaum will actively support the merger as Product Managing Director. The current location in Leipzig will remain fully operational as experts for the ApiOmat product and will continue to expand in the future. For existing ApiOmat customers and partners, nothing will change except for the new company name, EASY Apinauten GmbH.
Faster, better and more versatile
According to Etzel, the ApiOmat’s functionality will become even more versatile, above all with Low Code tools, the provisioning and development of microservices, the use of artificial intelligence and the integration possibilities to existing systems.
