Above All Software Launches Global Partner Program to Accelerate Adoption of Composite Applications in a Service-Oriented Architecture.
Above All Software, a provider of award-winning business integration software, today announced the launch of its Global Partner Program, designed to provide customers with highly functional composite applications that leverage an underlying service-oriented architecture (SOA). Program members include industry leaders Good Technology, Siebel, Microsoft, NEON Systems, salesforce.com, Remedy, Systinet, Daugherty Business Systems and MW2 Consulting.
Combined with Above All's market-leading Composite Application Platform, the program accelerates customer deployments and broadens Above All's market reach and service offerings in the composite application infrastructure market. The new program supports the partner community throughout the entire sales lifecycle with offerings such as technical and sales training, joint marketing programs, and support services.
"We've seen tremendous interest from customers in creating value from their SOA through composite applications," said Jon Temple, CEO of Above All Software. "Partners are an integral part of our success and this program exemplifies Above All's ongoing dedication to assisting market-leading partners increase their market presence and profitability."
Above All has structured the program to provide different types of partners the appropriate resources to maximize their success with the Above All Composite Application Platform. The program includes three distinct partner categories:
--Solution Partners -- Companies that provide integration, consulting and reselling services in conjunction with the Above All platform.
--OEM Partners -- Companies that bundle or embed Above All's products as part of a packaged offering.
--Technology Partners -- Companies that complement Above All's software, including those providing enterprise application software and core platform technologies.
The program is designed to provide system integrators and professional services providers with the tools and support needed to enhance success in delivering SOA-based composite applications. Above All currently has more than 20 solution provider partners, including Catalytic, Collective Intelligence, Daugherty Business Solutions, Innoveer, Merlin, MW2, MW Advisors, Portal Dynamics, Red Sky, and Theikos. The program adds value for the partners through funded co-marketing, monthly training webinars, and joint business planning.
"Through this new partner program, Above All allows us to fully leverage the work we do with our enterprise customers as they adopt and take advantage of an SOA," said Jeffrey Schlitt, Principal Consultant, Daugherty Business Solutions. "The combination of Above All software and our value-added services help our customers realize business value via the rapid time to market of their composite applications."
OEM partners embed and bundle Above All software with their solutions to extend the power of their offerings. OEM-based composite solutions have wide applicability in the marketplace, including solution areas that span mobile technologies, contact center solutions and financial applications. For example, Good Technology packaged and resells Above All Studio and Above All Mobile Client Server with its industry standards-based platform for rapidly developing and deploying mobile applications, GoodAccess(TM), making it possible for wireless device users to access numerous critical corporate applications in a single, unified view.
"GoodAccess combined with Above All's offerings enables our customers to quickly assemble integrated, composite wireless applications that combine business functionality and data from multiple systems such as order management, product catalogs, invoicing and messaging," said Danny Shader, CEO, Good Technology. "This provides for an integrated experience that conforms to the needs of the mobile business user on a broad range of handheld devices."
Above All works with software industry leaders, including Siebel Systems, Microsoft, salesforce.com, Remedy, NEON Systems, Systinet and other leading ISVs to enhance the value of the applications and technologies that companies deploy as part of their SOA. Above All works closely with these partners to extend and integrate the built-in functionality their systems provide. The resultant composite applications simplify user interaction with these systems and enable customers to reuse the services across multiple business processes.
"The growth of Web services and their usage in a service-oriented architecture allows customers to create new business value from their existing mainframe assets," said Mark Cresswell, President and CEO, NEON Systems. "Organizations can now take advantage of our integrated solution with Above All and deliver high-impact composite applications that leverage Web service-enabled mainframes."
