Significant Platform Upgrades Include a New Open Source SDK, Full Web Support and New API’s to Make Collecting & Connecting Mobile Data Easier than Ever.
NEW YORK CITY – December 09, 2015 — mParticle, the only customer data platform built for mobile, today announced it has launched several new platform upgrades. These include changes to its SDKs and a new API for partners to build integrations on top of mParticle. The latest release includes the following improvements:
- The latest version of the SDK also offers an embedded kit framework to further reduce the weight of the SDK and improve control offered to developers. The update give Apps complete control over which partner libraries they want to include in the core mParticle SDK reducing overhead and improving performance. While most of mParticle’s integrations are server-side, some app services like mobile measurement partners and deep linking solutions require client-side integrations.
- The Firehose API is a self-service API that allows anyone who has built an analytics or marketing service and offer access to their service to any of the apps on the platform. The API allows App Services to fast track the integration process in order to improve speed to market, making their services available to anyone who uses mParticle. The API is built on top of Amazon Web Services (AWS) Lambda.
