Build superapps and corresponding ecosystems on a full-stack platform

Superapp Overview

A superapp provides a set of fixed core features and access to a range of independently developed miniapps to cater to different customer requirements. Alibaba Cloud leverages Enterprise Mobile Application Studio (EMAS) to help you build your superapp with platform capabilities (and based on which) for your partners to develop miniapps for your ecosystem.

EMAS is derived from the best practices of Taobao and Tmall, providing an all-in-one application platform with comprehensive product and solution portfolios. EMAS is the leading provider of application platforms in China with the largest market scale. It has served over 330,000 users globally, with 100 billion APIs called per day and more than 820 million active devices each day. You can get a superapp up and running with the end-to-end modern app components of EMAS.
