Apprenda is the leading enterprise Platform as a Service (PaaS) powering the next generation of enterprise software development in public, private and hybrid clouds.

As a foundational software layer and application run-time environment, Apprenda abstracts away the complexities of building and delivering modern software applications, enabling enterprises to turn ideas into innovations faster. With Apprenda, enterprises can securely deliver an entire ecosystem of data, services, applications and APIs to both internal and external customers across any infrastructure. From theworld’s largest banks like JPMorgan Chase to healthcare organizations including AmerisourceBergen, Apprenda’s clients are part of a new class of software-defined enterprises, disrupting industries and winning with software.

Apprenda was founded by a team of software engineers frustrated with reinventing the wheel, following their work on a series of projects that took existing on-prem software apps to a multi-tenant cloud model. They realized that the bulk of their effort was focused on complex tasks unrelated to the actual application functionality or business value, but were nonetheless critical to the ongoing cost of providing access to the software-as-a-service. Platform issues such as multi-tenancy (sharing a single instance of the codebase and a single database across multiple clients and many end users), user & role management, metering & billing capabilities and scaling properties occupied more than 60% of the development time and up to 80% of the codebase.

Apprenda’s founders decided to abstract away all of the aforementioned platform issues by creating a middleware technology that would allow developers to focus on UI and business logic rather than lower level platform issues. This vector of innovation is fundamentally a continuation of the improvements made to software development achieved by the introduction of the operating system for desktop applications and the application server for web and SOA apps. Apprenda is the modern abstraction layer for apps in the cloud era.

Today, Apprenda is a fast growing startup company leading the charge in enabling enterprises to leverage an accessible PaaS pattern and help ISVs embrace the SaaS delivery paradigm and the benefits of cloud infrastructure. Apprenda has raised more than $32M in venture capital from early stage investment fund High Peaks Venture Partners, Ignition Partners, New Enterprise Associates (NEA) and Safeguard Scientifics.
