The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is usually used to launch new hardware—from laptops to mobile phones, from Wi-Fi routers to connected toasters.
One thing it doesn’t see much of is the launch of software products. But that is what we’re seeing today with the launch of Kuzzle, a new backend platform that sees itself as the route to “seamless software development across all devices, services and platforms.”
That’s a pretty lofty claim (OK, a very lofty one), especially since Kuzzle goes up against a range of tools: Salesforce’s platform, pure mobile backend as a service (MBaaS) solutions like Kinvey, as well as mobile development platforms. So, what is Kuzzle about, and what gives it the confidence to claim differentiation?
