The Sacramento Kings and Golden 1 Center app, powered by Built.io Flow and Built.io Backend, wins an Appy Award in the Sports Category
Stadiums are getting "smart" — and none is more high tech than the Sacramento Kings Golden 1 Center, which opened this fall. Sacramento Kings owner Vivek Ranadivé describes the venue as the 'Tesla of sports stadiums.'
The Golden 1 Center is leading a nationwide trend. Cloud start-ups Built.io and VenueNext work with arenas and stadiums to help them leverage the power of big data and to give visitors mobile apps to help them get their money's worth.
A growing number of companies want to improve the realtime access to their far-flung data. That said, many have trouble achieving this goal. Today, IoT solutions using cloud integration hold some keys to unlocking the promise of realtime for all sorts of projects. Built.io’s CTO Nishant Patel explains the technology approach – and use cases.
"Before now, everyone was very concerned about keeping their data in their department," said Parthiv Patel, technical marketing manager of Built.io, a software company with multiple products that smart cities utilize.
“The opportunities over time as we learn more about fans are endless,” Sampat said. “There’s a real important transformation taking place between the physical world and the digital world, which makes these stadium and arena projects so interesting to us.”
Neha Sampat, CEO of Built.io, said that the timing of this platform release is ideal because every sports brand is seeking ways to improve the overall fan experience. Sports brands can access the personal data of fans who opt in to monetize the experience through what is offered, whether it's merchandise, food, or upgraded tickets.
Of the two market leaders, Built.io’s platform-based approach to app building — where third-party components for features like wayfinding and parking can be added via an API structure — is more like VenueNext’s, though YinzCam also has the ability to add third-party components as needed. The challenge for all stadium- and team-app builders, as well as for venue owners and teams, is to get fans to download and use the apps, so that teams can take advantage of the opportunities afforded by digitally connected customers.
Now, sports franchises around the world have access to the same award-winning platform from Built.io that helped NBA teams like the Sacramento Kings become Fast Company’s “Most Innovative Company in Sports,” and the Miami HEAT future-proof its physical and digital technology investments.
Built.io Launches Digital Fan Experience Platform To Accelerate Digital Transformation Across Sports Industry
Built.io Partners With Leading Sports Franchises To Deliver VIP Digital Experiences, Boosting Fan Loyalty And Unlocking New Revenue Opportunities
If you haven’t begun (or completed) a transformation to REST APIs and microservices, get started right away.
Built.io® – a technology provider with digital solutions that enable organizations to quickly create, connect and scale applications across mobile, web and IoT – today announced that its Sacramento Kings + Golden 1 Center App won an Appy Award under the "Sports App" category.
Over the years, I’ve found my power hours are from 5 to 8 a.m., during which I will knock out thought-intensive tasks and mentally prepare for the day ahead.
A proper, stable PaaS can be a breath of fresh air. When we launched PaaS as a feature in Built.io Backend in October 2013, it enabled both our internal teams and developers. Any developer could now build a fully automated application — frontend, backend and mobile — on their own.
Soon enough, it will become hard to remember the time when enterprises did not by default turn to microservices. With the rise of IoT, there’s a perfect storm brewing that will push microservices into new and traditional industries. The benefits are high, the risk is low and the savings in terms of cost and resources make this one a no-brainer.
When you think about IT's future, you probably don’t think about factories. But the evolution of something called Industry 4.0 may be the model for IT's future strategy.
The report focuses on global major leading industry players with information such as company profiles, Products, Services and Solutions, revenue, market share and contact information.
Built.io® – a technology provider with digital solutions that enable organizations to quickly create, connect and scale applications across mobile, web and IoT – today announced it is placed in the March 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS).
Application leaders responsible for integration are being tasked with integrating hybrid application portfolios as well as providing easy access to the data within those systems. This Magic Quadrant can be used to assess the ability of integration PaaS vendors to meet these rapidly evolving needs.
When the NBA’s Sacramento Kings looked to build their state-of-the-art arena, the organization turned to Built.io to build a mobile app centered around the fans, allowing them to literally connect with the arena.
The good news for the Kings is that they based their stadium and team app on a new flexible platform from a company called Built.io, which the Kings say allows for easier addition (or deletion) of services through an API layer. Like the future-proof parts of the building itself, the app also shows the Kings’ dedication to building something now that will almost certainly change going forward.
With Built.io, sports franchises and venues can transcend the physical and digital boundaries to engage fans in unprecedented and highly innovative ways.
Built.io is providing the underlying technology for the app, which will debut before the 2017-2018 basketball season. The app uses the Built.io database application and the application structure, and Built.io will manage all the team's content. Built.io is working with digital transformation accelerator BeyondCurious to design the app.
The Miami HEAT are leaders in mobile innovation, and BeyondCurious' proven methodology for accelerating innovation will take our mobile fan engagement to a higher level. Built.io's platform, meanwhile, will allow us to future-proof our investment and prepare for tomorrow's technology requirements.
Driven by RESTful APIs, a headless content management system (CMS) can run in parallel with traditional web content management systems (WCMSes) to deliver content to users who are leaving the desktop behind in favor of mobile-devices.
“All of that together is enabling a much bigger community of people who are now genuinely integrating and developing for their own needs,” said Baier. “It’s not just IT; it’s happening across the board, and we want to nudge that along.”
Built.io pushes developers to foster collaboration, creativity among integrators, while offering incentives
The Community will consist of technical and semi-technical users who understand the power of automation and integration. Community members will benefit from networking with like-minded integration experts and citizen integrators who care about automation, bots, the Internet of Things (IoT), headless Content Management Systems (CMS), Backend-as-a-Service (BaaS), DevOps and more.
Built.io Announces Dedicated Developer Community and Inaugural Awards Program, Ushering in a New Wave of Innovation for Users
Built.io Community and the Internet of APIs Awards Help Foster Collaboration and Creativity Among Like-Minded Integration Experts and Citizen Integrators.
The whole CMS industry is facing a huge change, whether we like it or not. Today, the industry is still in the denial phase of the change as traditional vendors are caught unprepared. They try to catch up by adding headless functionality and offering managed or PaaS cloud hosting, but the results look like using duct tape to fix your bumper.
Other options for planners are integration platform-as-a-service products such as Built.io, providing solutions to more easily integrate a wide range of software systems into CRM and marketing automation tools. Features include workflow maps, ties to enterprise collaboration tools such as Cisco Spark or Slack, data mapping, activity triggers for complex workflows, mobile app integration, API builders, API debugging and testing tools and more. In essence, they make the process of integrating modern software products much simpler.
Blockchain will play an integral role in improving IoT security, Massive shakeups the bitcoin developer community will further complicate the technology, Chatbots will become so mainstream we’ll stop chatting about them...
In the next year we'll start to see more security-oriented measures put in place for IoT, and blockchain will play an integral role in that.
Built.io Adds On-Premises Deployment And DevOps Services To Its Cloud Integration Platform Built.io Flow
In order to operate and manage Built.io Flow On-Prem, Built.io offers complementary DevOps services to scale and continuously optimize the environment.
Built.io announced Monday that its Built.io Flow On-Prem, a new deployment option and architecture for its integration Platform-as-a-Service (iPaaS) Built.io Flow. By adding an on-prem offering to Built.io Flow Enterprise, the company can deliver a wide architectural range including the option to retain end-to-end control over the entire integration environment.
The on-premises availability may also benefit developers who would like to have more control over the stack via the on-premises deployment. Developers who use the new on-premises option may find it easier to implement new features or make custom changes to their development platform.
In order to operate and manage Built.io Flow On-Prem, Built.io offers complementary DevOps services to scale and continuously optimize the environment, effectively delivering the convenience of a fully-managed integration stack within the security perimeter of a private cloud or customer datacenter.
First things first, what is a headless CMS? It is an approach rather than a technology. At a very simplistic level, conventional content management systems are rigid when it comes to adding new delivery formats, like a mobile app or web-based applications, developed outside of the CMS platform into the website as these platforms take care of the entire web experience. So the solution was, figuratively speaking, chopping off the “head” to give more flexibility. The head here, represents the presentation of the content and the website, in other words that is the front-end, whereas the rest of the body is a metaphor for the back-end.
Several integration services capable of being invoked via the cloud have emerged over the past several years. Some of those services has been aimed at professional developers, while others are designed with end users who want to stitch applications together on their own in mind. Now, one of the pioneers of the latter capability is moving to make its core software available on-premises as well as in the cloud.
Built.io® Adds On-Premises Deployment And DevOps Services To Its Cloud Integration Platform Built.io Flow™
By default, Built.io Flow operates 100 percent in the cloud – nothing to install locally, nothing to maintain. For hybrid integration architectures, an Enterprise Gateway allows to securely connect cloud-based systems to on-premises systems. With the new Built.io Flow On-Prem, customers now have the additional option of a 100 percent on-premises architecture.

With Flow, Built.io has long offered an integration tool that allowed technical users (think IT admins and developers) to create complex, multi-step integrations with the help of an easy to use drag-and-drop interface. Now, however, the company has also launched a more basic version of Flow that is aimed at business users who want to create IFTTT-like integrations between applications like Cisco Spark, Slack, Gmail, Marketo and Salesforce. To clarify the difference between the two services, the old version of Flow is now Flow Enterprise, while this new one is branded as Flow Express.
Built.io Flow Express brings drag-and-drop data integration functionality to line-of-business users within an enterprise to create workflow automation models.
New Built.io® Flow Express™ Delivers Drag-and-Drop Integration to the Masses, Finally Allowing Business and IT Departments to Collaborate on Workflow Automation
Built.io Flow Express complements Built.io's existing integration offering (which is being rebranded as Built.io® Flow Enterprise™) to provide the first end-to-end integration suite that makes it possible for users with varying technical skills to collaborate on workflow automation. By using tools that offer appropriate capabilities for each audience, workflows can be exchanged and optimized across both business and IT functions.

Mobile Backend as a Service (MBaaS) provider Built.io this week announced Built.io Backend 3.0, the latest release of its platform, which provides developers with a customizable environment for building mobile applications.
Clients demand real-time ingestion and analysis of data to provide an excellent customer experience.
MBaaS has been praised as a way to get mobile apps up and running fast, without having to make serious database configurations. But now, users want that database control back.
Built.io Backend 3.0 presents a pluggable architecture for more robust security, better app performance and greater control over data.
Open Source was mentioned most frequently, though others were mentioned as well.
To gather insights on the state of application and data integration, we spoke with 18 executives from 15 companies who are involved in the integration of applications and data.
The bots we hear about are primarily built and designed for the U.S. market or Asia, however. That’s unfortunate. If you don’t speak English, Chinese, Japanese, or Korean, you’ll be pretty disappointed with the bots you find on the market.
Built.io Flow makes building enterprise integrations easier. The Activity Builder allows organizations to instantly add new services to their integration library. The Data Mapper enables data transformation between heterogeneous systems.
Bots are only as useful as the services they are integrated with, and their purpose is essentially automation — that is, creating and executing actions based upon a set of criteria.
Built.io has released a number of new features to its Built.io Flow Integration Platform-as-a-Service (iPaaS) which creates workflows and automates business processes for connected sensors, devices, systems and applications across mobile, web and IoT.

The editors at SearchSOA regularly recognize SOA, enterprise architecture, application integration and modernization technologies for their innovation and market impact. Built.io Flow, a cloud integration platform, is our new Editors' Choice for Innovation selection.
Today, there are many organizations that embrace the cloud in the belief that they are automatically shielded from infrastructure-related issues or that they are "just handled" by their cloud provider without impacting an application’s functionality. Although this can be the case for some incidents, there are many failures you still need to account for in your application design.
DevOps is not a new concept. In fact, a DevOps engineer is often thought of as the evolution of the old-school system administrator and/or a database administrator.
The Mobile Backend-as-a-Service field grew out of a very specific need: developers needed to build mobile applications fast. It was as simple as that.
Creating and running a business can be trying. You are faced with adversities on a daily basis and are forced to make decisions that affect the future of your company. There are many parallels between a business and a good bottle of wine.
Like hacking, bots used to be a largely negative technology term. As hacking evolved into positively charged developer hackathons and web ‘mashup’ hacks, the term shook off much of its malevolent image.
In the face of a critical software developer talent shortage, there appears to be a glimmer of hope resting among the emerging generation of software developers. And the way these young developers approach app coding and development may hold valuable lessons for the older generation of software professionals.

Not too long ago application integration was a process that needed to be planned out over a period of months. But with the rise of new classes of platform-as-a-service (PaaS) environments specifically designed for integration, many end users are now playing a much bigger role in application integration.
Integration has been perceived like a mortar between bricks, or like the commas in my sentences — small, but very noticeable, connections chaining together components that may or may not belong together.

Real-time communication technology is an absolute requirement for the development of Internet of things (IoT) applications. Imagine the use case where your phone communicates with your lights. If it takes several seconds before your lights turn on, that’s a failed user experience.
Kurt Collins, Built.io Developer Evangelist, discusses when to use containers or virtual machines, and what to factor in when making that decision.
Arguably the first Internet of Things (IoT) device in the modern era, the The Trojan Room Coffee Pot was developed in a computer laboratory at the University of Cambridge. Three times a minute, a computer program would upload an image showing the amount of coffee left in the pot to the university's server.
Originally, Contentstack was made available to customers as requested, but new features have warranted the product being made available more generally, explains COO Matthew Baier.
Initial forays into this space for the software application development teams performing this work were extremely intricate and difficult jobs. If you wanted to roll out a cloud service (you could call it a ‘cloud app’ if you like), you would need to build custom-aligned backend database services, sign-on controls and a variety of ‘push’ services to service the application itself.
After years of re-creating a supporting back-end every time we built a product for a new client, we developed Built.io Backend to accelerate our development cycles and reduce the risk normally associated with building innovative solutions that rely on cutting edge technology.
