The potential of the realtime revolution


Our everyday digital experiences are in the midst of a realtime revolution. Whether attending an event in a virtual venue, receiving realtime financial information, or monitoring live car performance data – consumers simply expect realtime digital experiences as standard. As a result, synchronizing data in realtime is business critical for many organizations.

As more devices join the internet, and businesses scramble to reorganize themselves around a complicated realtime data economy, simpler and more reliable infrastructure is required to meet not only today’s realtime data synchronization needs but also those for a future where everyday services rely on data that is constantly in motion. But building homegrown realtime synchronization capabilities is complex and costly.

In the same way that content delivery networks simplify and underpin large parts of the internet, Ably is the invisible platform and infrastructure layer powering the realtime revolution on a global scale.

As the de facto platform for developers at organizations of all sizes, Ably is on track to reach one billion devices per month by 2023.
