Appnovation Technologies is a professional IT services firm specializing in solutions for the web, intranet and mobile application development using open source technologies.


Appnovation uses open source technologies (Drupal, Alfresco and HTML5 frameworks like SproutCore and PhoneGap) and delivers middleware, Big Data and business intelligence solutions (using Mulesoft, Hadoop and MongoDB). Appnovation is one of five companies in Canada to achieve Platinum Partner status with Alfresco and Enterprise Select Partner status with Acquia.[2][3]


Appnovation Technologies was founded in 2007 in Vancouver, Canada by CEO Arnold Leung.[4][5][6] During its first year in business Appnovation Technologies helped the current Tatango launch the older version of the mobile texting platform called NetworkText.[7] By 2009, the company had grown to become the 15th biggest web development company in Vancouver, Canada.[8]

In 2010 Appnovation was ranked #16 in PROFIT's Profit Hot 50 List[9] and Leung was named to Business in Vancouver's Top Forty Under 40 list. In 2011 Leung was also named BDC's Young Entrepreneur of the Year for British Columbia[10] and Appnovation was a finalist in the Small Business BC "Successful You Awards" in the Best Company category.

As published in The Globe and Mail, Appnovation's revenue had tripled from the previous year, topping out at $4.2 million for 2011.[11] The company continued to grow in 2014, opening an office in Montreal, Quebec and a strategic sales and development centre in Saint John, New Brunswick.[12]
