Chicago, IL WebLayers today announced a formal partnership with cloud services provider CloudOne. The agreement gives enterprises the ability to leverage a combination of WebLayers’ SOA and application development governance technology with CloudOne’s software-as-a-service (SaaS) delivery of IBM Rational tools.
WebLayers develops software and provides services to Fortune 2000 companies that are striving to decrease the amount and magnitude of costly software errors. WebLayers technology enables an organization to centralize policy management, to automate compliance assessment, and to implement real-time controls at every stage of the software development lifecycle.
CloudOne elevates development team collaboration through secure Virtual Private Clouds, available at any time to everyone, everywhere. The technology boosts cost savings by filling Clouds dynamically with market-leading IBM Rational development tools through a SaaS delivery. CloudOne seeks to raise customer productivity and software quality through CloudOne Consortium partners, such as WebLayers.
The agreement means that a pre-configured version of WebLayers technology will be accessible from within Vortex from CloudOne, a planning, work management, dashboard and team communication service based on IBM’s award-winning Rational Team Concert. The WebLayers component will include service-oriented architecture (SOA) and Java policy libraries, along with WebLayers’ Policy Manager and Conformance Center to ensure policy adherence.
“Our goal with Vortex is to make planning, work management, reporting and communication inexpensive and easy,” says John McDonald, CEO of CloudOne. “WebLayers’ technology aligns perfectly with our mission of increased cost-efficiency and code quality for software development.”
The agreement also means that CloudOne will be joining the WebLayers partner network. “I’m confident that this collaboration will lead to client engagements that are mutually beneficial and, most importantly, will deliver high customer satisfaction ratings for improving software development,” said Jeff Papows, president and CEO, WebLayers.
