Kynetx Developer Program Vision Comes to Life with More Than 800 New Apps

The platform is a rules-based language that allows developers to build new web experiences

Entrepreneurs & Innovators on Ulitzer

Kynetx is a client-side revolution with its unparalleled development platform and program. At the heart of the platform is a rules-based language that allows developers to build entirely new web experiences that are cross-site, cross-platform and respond to context in the user’s environment. By leveraging this platform, the Kynetx developer program has already garnered more than 300 developers resulting in over 800 applications.

“Unlike any other platform, Kynetx offers developers the technology to easily resolve data mismatches coming from fractured sources of information. This capability results in a new breed of apps that act as powerful context-aware mash-ups,” says Stephen Fulling, Kynetx co-founder and CEO. “Information is only powerful if it touches you when and where you need it…in context. Kynetx gives developers the tools they need for connecting the dots.”

Richard Miller, a lead developer at FamilyLink.com, used the Kynetx Development platform to create a prototype application with the power to extend FamilyLink’s functionality to sites across the web, including Facebook, Gmail, LinkedIn, and Twitter. In just a few days, he crafted the prototype application that extends the experience of FamilyLink users when looking for relatives, adding relatives or communicating with them beyond the FamilyLink site.

“This is exactly the kind of viral growth and entrepreneurial innovation we were hoping would come out of our Developer Program,” Fulling continued. “Richard read a blog post about us, signed up, and was writing a ground-breaking app in minutes. The Kynetx Developer Program offers unparalleled tools and infrastructure to help unleash developers’ imaginations. Clearly, that’s what Richard Miller has done.”

Kynetx recently increased its “mash-up” capabilities with new Twitter API support. The Kynetx Rules Language now integrates with the Twitter API, using Twitter’s OAuth scheme, giving developers the ability to create Kynetx applications that can easily access Twitter data.

“The Twitter upgrade opens a myriad of possibilities for our Developer Program,” says Dr. Phillip Windley, Kynetx CTO. “Using Kynetx, you can create and deploy an app in minutes that understands and responds to Twitter data on any website or web-enabled device.”

Kynetx also offers semi-annual conferences designed for developers to explore ideas and learn from the experts, face to face. The next Kynetx Impact conference is scheduled for April 27th-28th in Salt Lake City. More information and registration can be found at www.kynetx.com.

Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications. Of course, there's Kubernetes, which orchestrates and manages collections of containers. It was one of the first and best-known examples of projects that make containers truly useful for production use. However, more recently, the container ecosystem has truly exploded. A service mesh like Istio addr...
