Move Timed to Meet the Emerging Trend in Rich Internet Application Development for the Enterprise.

We have been seeing more and more enterprises look to Flex to give them a better end user experience. In that move to Flex there are some challenges that ElementRiver hopes to help enterprises meet through consulting services and our soon to be released platform.

ElementRiver announced today that it has been created to provide services to the growing market of Flex developers looking to create Rich Internet Applications (RIA). The services will range from full project lifecycle to mentoring and project management to supplement an organization's lack of experience in RIA development. Later this year ElementRiver will release an open source project providing a platform for Flex developers to be more productive and to ease the learning curve when moving to this emerging technology. Additional add-ons for the open source platform will become available over time for a fee.

The creative force behind ElementRiver is CEO Chris Gross, an IBM veteran and UI expert for over 10 years. "We have been seeing more and more enterprises look to Flex to give them a better end user experience. In that move to Flex there are some challenges that ElementRiver hopes to help enterprises meet through consulting services and our soon to be released platform." The company is located in Reston, VA the heart of the Dulles Technology corridor known for companies like Deltek, AOL, WebMethods and Parature.

Later this year the open source project will be released with its own site under the open source standard. ElementRiver founders have significant experience with the open source community including creating the Eclipse Nebula project. As that platform gains community support ElementRiver will provide additional components to enrich the developer experience. The ElementRiver team is passionate about helping the creation of a rich UI experience for applications to improve end user use and experience.
