Miami-based startup Zudy announced today the release of Vinyl, a technology-agnostic no-code development platform that enables enterprise businesses to rapidly build highly-configurable applications. Companies can build mobile and web apps in days rather than months, on any device and operating system.
Zudy raised $7.5 Million in funding from Miami Stuff, LLC in December.
According to Gartner, U.S. companies spent $300 billion on enterprise application development in 2013 and are on track to spend upwards of $575 billion per year by 2018. Cost, time, and the large number of resources required for today’s application development strategies slows innovation for companies.
“As enterprise [customers] deal with transformation from the digital revolution, their biggest issue is the lack of evolution with application development,” said Tom Kennedy, co-founder and CTO of Zudy. “It’s time to stop coding and start creating value. Vinyl will change attitudes about application development and begin to liberate innovation in the enterprise again”
Vinyl works with cloud-based systems such as SalesForce, WorkDay, SuccessFactors and Microsoft Dynamics. The platform also works with legacy systems and on-premise relational database management systems (RDBMS) including SQL, Oracle, IBM and SAP Hana as well as NoSQL systems like Cassandra.
Zudy hopes to help enterprises to dramatically increase the number of new applications from an average of less than ten to more than 50 per year.
