Company adds more than 135 new customers in first quarter of 2016
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., May 26, 2016 — Sencha, the company providing a unified platform for designing, developing and testing cross-platform web applications, added more than 135 new customers to the Sencha community during the first quarter of 2016, with more than 40 percent of growth in EMEA.
Key customer growth occurred in the software, information technology and services, and financial services industries. Sencha also worked with 440 existing customers that significantly expanded their use of the Sencha Platform. Nearly half of the customer expansion was in North America.
“In the first quarter of this year, I visited customers all over the world and was incredibly impressed with the sophisticated business applications they’re building with the Sencha Platform,” said Art Landro, Sencha CEO. “The primary reasons these customers selected Sencha for their web application needs are the comprehensive platform and corresponding impact on developer productivity, ability to analyze and visualize complex data sets, and the peace of mind that comes from having a dedicated commercial vendor ready to support them.”
Over three quarters (76.4 percent) of enterprise organizations are planning to dedicate more of their
IT department budgets toward mobilization efforts, according to IDC*. The demand for visualizing and analyzing complex data sets continues to increase, as does the need for development teams to add analytics and data visualization to their web applications. With increased application accessibility across desktops, tablets and smartphones, development teams need tools to increase productivity and address defects in their code earlier in the lifecycle, where issues can be resolved faster and less expensively.
New and Upgraded Products
In the first quarter of 2016, Sencha released new products and updates to existing products. Its latest product, Sencha Test was introduced in February, empowering developers and test automation engineers with easy-to-use unit and functional testing features for Ext JS applications. Early adopters of Sencha Test deployed the product in less than five minutes, while a third of customers expect Sencha Test to make their application development cycles 75 percent more efficient.
Sencha also announced the release of Sencha Architect 3.5 as part of the Ext JS Pro and Premium packages. Sencha Architect 3.5 enables companies and developer teams to design and build HTML5 applications with the Ext JS 6 Classic toolkit. By using the Sencha Architect drag-and-drop features, developers spend less time on manual coding, accelerating the development of both desktop and mobile applications.
Last month, Sencha announced its sixth SenchaCon developer conference will be Nov. 7-9 at the Aria Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. The conference theme, Winning with the Modern Web, will explore how companies and organizations can leverage advances in web technology and the Sencha Platform to design, develop and test cross-platform web applications.
