Web apps are game-changers for application development and deployment
Demand for Sencha open-source Web application frameworks and tools is being driven by two key trends in both business and consumer markets. Publishers, retailers and developers of consumer-facing apps are gravitating toward mobile Web technologies as a flexible solution for reaching mobile users on smartphones and tablets. This transition has been accelerated by the emergence of advanced, WebKit-based mobile browsers that embed the latest HTML5 technologies. In addition, many enterprises have begun to migrate their core enterprise applications from first-generation Web architectures to modern, single-page Web applications powered by the latest AJAX technologies. Enterprises and development firms are increasingly choosing Sencha tools and SDKs because of their ability to deliver faster development times and better user experiences on both the desktop and mobile devices.

“We are honored to be recognized by AlwaysOn as an AlwaysOn Global 250 winner, and to be invited to participate at this year’s Innovation Summit,” said Michael Mullany, CEO of Sencha. “This accolade certainly reflects the increasing importance of tools that enable developers to create highly functional websites and Web apps that can engage computer users around the world.”
