Boston, MA (PRWEB) January 11, 2012
In the last twelve months, Davalen, LLC, a respected technical IBM business partner, has witnessed a new movement taking place with enterprise customers. Insurance, banking and manufacturing enterprises have adopted the IBM Web Experience Factory development paradigm as a successful way to reduce cost and increase productivity for portal development. As the achievement and quality of the projects surface, the demand grew and as such, Davalen has found a major shift and transformation away from traditional portal development technologies.
To extend support to these new enterprise customers, Davalen is pleased to announce the hiring of two senior level IBM Web Experience Factory developers. Investing in new resources due to high demand, as well as a new designation as a core provider to IBM’s Software Services, Davalen has firmly sealed the leading spot in a growing competitive area.
“We have doubled in size over the past year because our enterprise customers have seen us deliver on their most challenging projects, time and time again,” said Len Barker, co-founder and managing partner of Davalen. "In the past couple of years IBM Web Experience Factory has become the preferred tool to the enterprise because of its high rate of efficiency in portal development. Because of this demand Davalen's expertise is accelerating as we acquire top industry talent to support this emerging market."
Adam Kewley has ten years of IBM Web Experience Factory experience, including five years as a software engineer with IBM, where he provided high-level support to the IBM Web Experience Factory (formerly Portlet Factory) group. His strengths are in release engineering, product development and maintenance with a focus on Java technologies. Prior to IBM he worked at Bowstreet, which was acquired by IBM in 2005.
Kevin Wilmeth is a seasoned technologist, as well as an author of numerous technical curricula and courses on IBM Web Experience Factory and IBM Lotus Notes/Domino. Like Adam, Kevin is a Bowstreet alumnus where his responsibilities included developing both enterprise customer solutions and technical training. Once at IBM, he provided technical instruction, course development, mentoring, and consulting while enabling internal consultants to become certified IBM instructors.
“I'm excited that after several years of dedicated effort, Davalen has grown in size and expertise to be recognized by IBM as a core provider for IBM Software Services,” said Dave Jacob, also co-founder and managing partner of Davalen. “We offer a compelling and attractive package for our clients which include interacting with the most qualified individuals available in the market – in both Adam and Kevin, Davalen has again added the highest quality staff to support IBM and our own technical portfolio.”
Kevin and Adam have been assigned as technical leads on portal development projects for direct customers and will also be supporting Davalen’s growing participation and investment in the IBM Software Services for Lotus relationship.
