Appear Networks Systems AB is a Swedish provider of context aware enterprise mobility solutions. The flagship product, Appear IQ, combines a mobile enterprise application platform (MEAP) supporting cross-platform and device agnostic development, with a powerful context engine, a vertical solution store[clarification needed] and integrated mobile device management (MDM). Appear products are offered either as cloud-based services (PaaS) or behind-the-firewall depending on the specific customer requirements.
In 2000, initial research was conducted on context-aware services and local wireless broadband networks -both at KTH and HBS, under the project name "Bluesolid". Meanwhile in Stockholm, a team of KTH engineers designed the first prototype of a mobile middleware platform.
Then in 2001, Bluesolid officially became Appear Networks and corporate headquarters were established in Stockholm, Sweden. As of mid-2012, the company remains privately held.
Appear IQ 8 (AIQ8), available both as a turnkey solution and a hosted service, provides a scalable and holistic approach to enterprise mobility. Core modules include support for cross-platform application development using HTML5, pre-packaged and template applications for Travel, Transport, Field Service and Security, integration with backend business systems, secure provisioning of users and devices and the integration of a powerful context engine.
Appear IQ supports iPhones, iPads, Android based phones and tablets as well as Windows Mobile based devices.
