Yellowfin Consulting, an IBM Business Partner, announced a partnership with Bowstreet, the leading provider of development tools for the creation and maintenance of adaptive J2EE applications. Yellowfin, a privately held firm specializing in the Application Integration, Middleware, Portal, Web Services and Business Process sectors of information management, will promote and deploy Bowstreet's technology as part of its overall portal solution.
Under the terms of the partnership, the two companies will work jointly to provide portal solutions that reduce deployment time and deliver customers a greater return on investment. Yellowfin will incorporate Bowstreet Portlet Factory into its suite of portal offerings for small-to-medium sized businesses and large enterprises.
"Yellowfin Consulting is focused on helping our clients achieve business value from information technology," said Mark Burcher, president, Yellowfin Consulting. "Our partnership with Bowstreet will enable our customers to leverage portal technologies for centralized access to applications and data, and enhanced employee productivity."
"Combining Yellowfin's services with Bowstreet's technology gives customers in both the small-to-medium business and enterprise markets a powerful alternative for their portal initiatives," said Jeff Seifert, director of worldwide business development, Bowstreet. "Yellowfin's WebSphere and Lotus Workplace expertise aligns perfectly with Bowstreet's product strategy."
Bowstreet Portlet Factory supercharges portal software with tools and technology for rapidly creating, customizing, maintaining, and deploying portlets. Portlet Factory's ease of use and advanced development features dramatically streamline the entire portlet development process, enabling developers to deliver adaptive, robust portlets in a fraction of the time and at a fraction of the cost it requires today.
With Bowstreet Portlet Factory, the portlet development process is greatly accelerated. Bowstreet powered portlets are dynamic, robust J2EE applications that react automatically to change, and can be further modified by users in real time to meet changing business requirements. In addition, portlets created with Bowstreet Portlet Factory can automatically present themselves as stand-alone web applications, web services or portlets, without requiring any coding, duplicating or versioning of assets. By eliminating the need to code all of these implementations and their variations, Bowstreet Portlet Factory simplifies the development, deployment and change management process, saving companies time and money, and freeing developers to focus on more important, strategic work.
