ATLANTA, Ga., Jan. 22 – Liaison Technologies, a global provider of secure cloud-based integration and data management services and solutions, announced today the expansion of its SaaS and cloud-based Application Partner Program. Building on the strength of existing relationships with key SaaS and Cloud-based application providers, including NetSuite, MS Dynamics, and Ariba, the expanded partner program will focus on enabling partners to streamline delivery of leading B2B and data management solutions for enterprises.
While many enterprises have historically leveraged internal resources to complete integration projects, the growing complexity of these projects, exacerbated by the increasing adoption of myriad cloud services, has more enterprises, cloud-based application and SaaS providers looking to simplify and outsource the integration to a Cloud Services Brokerage (CSB) provider. As this practice becomes more commonplace, demand will rise for hybrid services such as Liaison, which are not only capable of integrating between cloud services, but between cloud services and existing on-premise systems.
“Integration is a core strength of Liaison, and our partner program combines over a decade of integration expertise with the application development and provisioning strengths that cloud-based application and SaaS vendors bring to the table,” said Megan Pulliam, Vice President of Channel Sales at Liaison Technologies. “The result is best-in-class end-to-end solutions for customers and a newfound ability for enterprises to discover and shape new opportunities for their business.”
In support of this expanded partner program, in November 2012 Liaison released new integration and data management solutions designed to streamline the coordination of many diverse applications, databases, and e-commerce formats commonly used in the enterprise. Electronic Commerce Server (ECS) 7.0, which includes a new cloud connector feature for simple one-click extensibility to ECS, and Delta 6.0, deliver broad extensibility and create a scalable and virtual computing infrastructure.
Liaison Technologies is a global integration, data management and data security company. It provides unique and high-value services to move, transform and manage business information in the cloud, and to protect data to help organizations master complex security challenges and meet compliance mandates. With a comprehensive array of business-to-business and application-to-application integration and data transformation services, as well as on-premise and cloud-based data security solutions, Liaison's practitioners implement data management infrastructures adapted to each client's specific business requirements. Headquartered in Atlanta, Liaison has offices in the Netherlands, Finland, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
Frank Ding, engineering analysis & technical computing manager at Simpson Strong-Tie, discussed the advantages of utilizing the cloud for occasional scientific computing, identified the obstacles to doing so, and proposed workarounds to some of those obstacles.
The private industry least likely to adopt public cloud services for data storage are financial institutions. Holding the most sensitive and heavily-regulated of data types, personal financial information, banks and similar institutions are mostly moving towards private cloud services – and doing so at great cost.
