MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - Mar 26, 2013) - Appcelerator®, the only platform built for a Mobile First world, has launched its Velocity Initiative for premier partners. Anchored by the comprehensive Appcelerator Platform, Velocity enables enterprise partners with unique pre- and post-sales opportunities and delivery programs to meet the rising global demand for enterprise mobility.
The new offering provides concierge-style services to large-scale mobile delivery partners. It promotes their success with a range of customized marketing, sales, services and support tailored to the specific needs of the partner, their customers, the user experience and the enterprise frameworks in which mobile applications will be deployed. Charter program members include global integrators like Cognizant and Wipro; software product developers like Global Logic, iTexico and Persistent Systems; mobility market makers like AppMatrix, BestFit, Bizmosis, and PopcornApps; regional providers like ProximateApps; and enterprise specialists WinWire and expertIG who focus on mobilizing high-profile software brands.
"Velocity is designed to help promote and support the innovations of partners who have already taken forward positions in mobility, and understand the opportunity to deliver entirely new and different offerings in the enterprise that are only possible with mobile," said Gamiel Gran, Appcelerator's Vice President of Business Development. "Fully aligning our efforts with those of our key partners is essential to delivering at the speed that enterprises demand to scale mobility this year."
Appcelerator enables enterprises to scale from a single project to hundreds and beyond with an open, extensible, cloud-based mobile platform that includes development, performance management, comprehensive testing, analytics and cloud services, as well as connectors to key enterprise information systems. The Velocity Initiative equips partners to help businesses avoid the pitfalls of traditional methods and first generation tools that involve multiple technologies that are slow to deploy and evolve, and even more costly to maintain.
"CIOs are rethinking their mobility strategy -- creating programs to support corporate applications, equipping employees with smartphones and tablets, and putting in place processes to drive customer engagement, supply chain operations and collaboration," states Guarav Dhall, Global Head, Mobility Solutions, Wipro Technologies. "Appcelerator and Velocity are completely aligned with this new direction as we collaborate to establish Mobile Centers of Excellence for our customers to enable them to become Mobile First enterprises."
"Velocity partners were selected for their talent, skill and laser-like focus on the enterprise, where they are innovating mobile consumer, employee and supply chain solutions," said Jeff Haynie, CEO of Appcelerator. "Tightly coupling our resources with Velocity partners produces the best, most consistent and manageable solutions for companies that want to transform their business with mobility."
