Establishes a dedicated Centre of Excellence to provide support across a wide range of mobile development platforms.
Sonata Software, a global IT consulting and software services provider, today announced that it has established a dedicated Centre of Excellence (CoE) for mobility, with a dual focus on supporting Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and enterprises. The new CoE will develop new frameworks and solutions accelerators to enable faster mobile application development across platforms such as Android, Windows Mobile, BlackBerry, iOS, J2ME and MEAP (such as Sybase Unwired Platform).
Recently IDC, the premier global market intelligence firm, in its report “Strategies and Opportunities Driving Mobile Enterprise Application Development Life-Cycle Services”, has highlighted Sonata’s key strengths in providing mobile design and development services across various industry verticals. Among these are the availability of an established usability team, investment in vertical solution accelerators and ability to adapt to highly dynamic mobile technology environment, which have enabled Sonata to differentiate among the peers in the industry.
According to the report, Sonata’s combined investments in a mobile solutions factory, along with the company's planned Travel, Transportation, and Logistics (TTL) solution accelerators, will strengthen existing offerings and help accelerate the pace at which highly agile mobile application development projects can be delivered.
Mr. Gyana Pattnaik, Head - Open Source, Testing and New Technologies, Sonata Software, said,“We are delighted that our best practices, offerings and capabilities are being acknowledged by an industry analyst like IDC. The report is a testimony to our ability to provide comprehensive set of mobility solutions and services to both ISVs and enterprises.”
“The mobility services market has rapidly evolved over the last few years and we anticipate it to be a $9 billion to $10 billion services opportunity in the next few years. There is an upsurge in mobile adoption across both the segments (ISV’s & Enterprises), which is of strategic importance to Sonata,” he further added.
For ISVs, Sonata’s CoE will support the mobile software development life cycle - development through testing and product sustenance. For enterprises, Sonata offers mobility strategy definition, mobilizing existing enterprise applications or implementing mobile enterprise application platform solutions. Sonata will leverage its alliances with Microsoft and Sybase (SAP) to address this opportunity.
