After assessing the landscape, VMware IT turned to Progress® Kinvey™ and vCloud Air for help.
Migrating the My VMware app to Kinvey on vCloud Air took less than four weeks: two
weeks for a few code tweaks and two weeks for quality assurance testing. VMware only
had to make changes to two areas to launch the app on the Kinvey serverless application delivery platform:
1. Identity Management: This is where VMware added OAuth 2 to the
frontend code and updates to the log-in screen
2. Data Requests: The second change was to the VMware app’s data
requests, to point them to Kinvey’s backend
With those two changes, VMware IT gained the benefits of a more cost-effective and fully managed enterprise-class platform. Kinvey on vCloud Air provides VMware with seamless scalability as well as a secure, fully featured platform to easily develop and manage new applications.
“We needed an enterprise class infrastructure for our mobile applications just like we have for all our other business critical solutions,” said Joel Soppet, IT Senior Director, VMware. “With Kinvey on vCloud Air, we gained the benefits of a cost-effective enterprise class mobile infrastructure with a fully managed service and can focus on supporting our customers.”
