At OptiCon 2014, the company's first customer conference, co-founders Dan Siroker and Pete Koomen unveiled the expansion of the Optimizely platform into mobile, a new developer platform, and a powerful, revamped results page. The company is also launching Optiverse, a dedicated space for all members of the optimization community to engage in an industry-first global forum.

        on the same advanced platform chosen by more than 6,000 customers.

        waiting for App Store review.
    --  Optimizely Developer Platform - A series of powerful APIs that will
        enable developers to build on top of Optimizely using code instead of

        BlueKai data for powerful targeting and reporting.
    --  Audiences - Customers have unlimited capabilities to save and reuse
        visitor targeting conditions to power advanced personalization
        campaigns. Supported by a completely revamped Results Page, customers
        can dig deeper into their experiment results to utilize visitor groups
        for targeting experiments in more advanced ways than ever before.
        Audiences unlocks visitor insights using both first party or third party
    --  Optiverse - The premier destination where optimization experts and
        novices can engage with industry peers, ask questions, get product
        support, expand their mastery of testing, and take their skills to the
        next level. Members of Optiverse can access online certifications,
        discussion forums, and educational content.
    --  Customer Certification - The Optimizely certification program allows
        individuals to showcase expertise with the Optimizely platform, advanced
        technical skills and knowledge of strategic web optimization.

"Optimizely catapults business growth by allowing teams to use data to quickly uncover what works and what doesn't," said Siroker. "At Optimizely, our job is to create a delightful platform for our customers so that they can deliver robust and personalized experiences to their audiences. Modern marketing calls for seamless experiences across every point of their business.
