Honored at Apps World Europe 2014 for Excellence and Innovation in the Apps Industry

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., November 14, 2014 – AppDirect, the cloud service commerce company, today announced it has won the Appsters Award for Best Use of Cloud in 2014. In association with the Apps World event series, the Appsters annual awards program celebrates excellence and innovation in the apps industry through a global judging panel of independent experts.

Recognized for its advanced technology platform and cloud services ecosystem, AppDirect makes it incredibly easy for businesses to find, buy, use, manage and monitor cloud services from a single location. While creating this type of platform and ecosystem can take years to build and develop, through AppDirect, companies can launch marketplaces quickly and efficiently, and even choose from a range of commerce capabilities as they evolve and grow their presence. AppDirect’s monetization and management platform provides a complete solution for cloud service commerce with centralized discovery, billing, identity management, data visualization, and automation solutions that drive a range of benefits.

AppDirect has also united providers, developers and consumers of cloud services in an ecosystem that drives benefits across its network of marketplaces – developers can integrate their applications once and be available in numerous marketplaces operated by different brands around the world and this also enables providers to offer a rich selection of services to their customers.

“Our vision from day one has been building a connected cloud ecosystem that drives real value and makes it very easy for companies to access the best-of-breed business apps they need to be effective,” said Dan Saks, co-CEO of AppDirect. “Winning the Appsters Award is an achievement we can share and celebrate with every provider, developer and buyer of apps in our ecosystem and across our platform, and a true testament of their support making this vision a reality for the cloud economy.”
