Nexaweb's Port Partner Program Adds Three New Members

Edgewater Technologies, eFoundry, Inkriti

Nexaweb's recently created Port Partner program, announced at Web Services Edge 2005 on SYS-CON.TV (http://sys-con.tv) continues to expand by aligning with visionary companies that understand the need to jumpstart the development and deployment of enterprise Internet applications.

Nexaweb yesterday added three new partners: Edgewater Technologies, eFoundry and Inkriti. The new partners join just weeks after Nexaweb's program was launched at Web Services Edge last month.

The Port Partner Program is aimed at easing the migration of client/server applications to the Web. Partners will be able to deliver more complete solutions, helping enterprise and ISV customers convert their client/server apps to next-generation Web solutions.

"The immediate addition of Edgewater Technology, eFoundry and Inkriti to our strategic partner lineup demonstrates the traction of our new Port Partner Program," said Larry Geisel, CEO of Nexaweb. "We look forward to working with our partners to ease the pain of migrating mission critical enterprise applications to the Web. By making Internet application development as seamless as possible, we can help free up our partners to focus on other business-advancing activities."

Nexaweb, provider of the leading software platform for building and deploying highly scalable, fully featured Internet applications, has created three engagement levels for customers. The entry level Portsm service creates a Web-version of an existing application. The existing application may be a traditional client/server application, a Swing application or a first-generation Web application. The second-tier program, Port includes customizations designed to add functionality. Finally, Port adds additional services and infrastructure components, helping customers deliver their new application in a Software-as-a-Service model.

"Running enterprise-level applications on the Internet poses some unique challenges, but also offers tremendous business benefits," said David Gallo, chief operating officer for Edgewater Technology. "Nexaweb's standards-based platform, combined with our consulting and IT integration expertise, will offer our customers strategic advantage by overcoming the inherent obstacles associated with developing and deploying Internet applications."

"We're seeing an increasing market need to efficiently and cost-effectively bring existing client/server applications to the Web," said Steven Doherty, president of eFoundry. "We evaluated several technology solutions, and Nexaweb was hands-down the best company to help us extend our service offerings in this area."

The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In their Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, and Mark Lav...
The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of rec...
The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound e...
If your cloud deployment is on AWS with predictable workloads, Reserved Instances (RIs) can provide your business substantial savings compared to pay-as-you-go, on-demand services alone. Continuous monitoring of cloud usage and active management of Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), Relational Database Service (RDS) and ElastiCache through RIs will optimize performance. Learn how you can purchase and apply the right Reserved Instances for optimum utilization and increased ROI.
TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) is a common and reliable transmission protocol on the Internet. TCP was introduced in the 70s by Stanford University for US Defense to establish connectivity between distributed systems to maintain a backup of defense information. At the time, TCP was introduced to communicate amongst a selected set of devices for a smaller dataset over shorter distances. As the Internet evolved, however, the number of applications and users, and the types of data accessed and...
Consumer-driven contracts are an essential part of a mature microservice testing portfolio enabling independent service deployments. In this presentation we'll provide an overview of the tools, patterns and pain points we've seen when implementing contract testing in large development organizations.
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...
You have great SaaS business app ideas. You want to turn your idea quickly into a functional and engaging proof of concept. You need to be able to modify it to meet customers' needs, and you need to deliver a complete and secure SaaS application. How could you achieve all the above and yet avoid unforeseen IT requirements that add unnecessary cost and complexity? You also want your app to be responsive in any device at any time. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Allen, General Manager of...
