SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 24, 2019 -- PubNub, the company behind the world's leading Data Stream Network (DSN), today announced that PubNub has won a 2019 DEVIES Award for the Best Innovation in API Infrastructure. The 2019 DEVIES will be presented at the DEVIES Awards Ceremony at DeveloperWeek 2019 at the Oakland Convention Center in February.
The 2019 DEVIES Awards recognize technical innovation, adoption and reception in the developer technology industry and by the developer community. The 2019 DEVIES Awards received hundreds of nominations, and PubNub's technology was selected as a DEVIES Award winner based on three criteria: (1) attracted attention, awareness and adoption; (2) general well-regard by the developer, engineering & IT community; and (3) a leader in its sector for innovation.
"Developer technologies and tools are massively growing in their importance to a business' operations. PubNub is a great example of the new era of products and services empowering developers and engineers to have a greater impact on a company's bottom line," said Geoff Domoracki, CEO of DevNetwork and producer of DeveloperWeek.
The PubNub Data Stream Network solves the three key challenges for building and scaling real-time features, apps, and products: connectivity, delivery, and control. It empowers developers and teams to connect and ensure an always-on connection to any number of devices and stream data between them globally in real time. This core functionality is used across many use cases, from chat, IoT device control, to real-time mapping and charts. Additionally, PubNub's Serverless Functions APIs brings application business logic to the network edge, making complex low-latency feature-sets easy to build without managing servers.
"Since PubNub was founded, we have been 100 percent focused on delivering powerful APIs that let developers build and deploy modern, real-time applications at scale. These APIs, which together comprise our global Data Stream Network, are now being used over 1 trillion times per month across thousands of customers," said Todd Greene, CEO and co-founder of PubNub. "To be recognized by DeveloperWeek is incredibly exciting, and an indicator of our strong momentum into 2019."
