Progress’ Kinvey Named a Leader in Forrester Enterprise Health Cloud Wave

The Kinvey Backend as a Service (BaaS) platform has earned the highest possible score in the vision criterion and was top-ranked in the Current Offering category.

We are thrilled to announce that Kinvey has been recognized as a Leader for the second time by Forrester[1]—this time in The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Healthcare Clouds, Q3 2017. Kinvey received the highest possible score in the vision, developer platform, systems integration, patient engagement and customer acquisition and retention criteria, among others.

The healthcare industry is focused on delivering better patient outcomes with personalized and cost-efficient care. From medication adherence, remote patient monitoring and personalized treatment plans, to medical implants and augmented reality headsets for surgeons, patient-centric innovation is happening in every corner of the industry. Kinvey provides the secure, compliant and feature-rich platform to enable our customers to deliver these new app experiences quickly and affordably.

I believe that this latest recognition by Forrester underscores our strength in enabling healthcare organizations to build and deploy the most modern, HIPAA-compliant applications for their businesses. According to Forrester:

“Kinvey offers a BaaS (back-end-as-a-service) platform with healthcare-specific capabilities. It has differentiated its services with significant investment in the healthcare vertical during the past few years. Kinvey has developed robust, comprehensive partnerships with leading data integrators for the industry’s most complicated environments, including EHRs and internet of things devices. Kinvey is known for its massive developer community, with more than 30,000 applications for all verticals and use cases, built on the platform.”[2]

Kinvey is a critical component of Progress’ strategy in healthcare and across all industries. Kinvey provides the most performant, scalable, secure, open and serverless BaaS platform on the market, and it is used to run mission-critical apps by organizations the world over. Kinvey comes together with Progress’ leading capabilities for UI development, predictive analytics, data connectivity, and more, to form the market’s only complete and open stack for building and deploying modern, cognitive business applications.

We are excited about the future and about enabling our over 1,700 ISV partners, 80,000 enterprise customers and 2 million developers to build the next generation of their business applications.
