GUILDFORD, U.K. -- Volantis, the world’s leading supplier of Intelligent Content Adaptation solutions for the mobile internet, today announced it has achieved ‘Industry Optimized’ level in IBM’s PartnerWorld Industry Networks. Volantis can now take advantage of IBM’s sales, marketing and technical expertise to deliver on demand solutions to content providers, mobile network operators and enterprises that require device-optimized mobile computing.

Customers are seeking mobile solutions that better integrate processes and applications and allow them to quickly respond to changing market opportunities – all key elements in transforming to an On Demand business.

Volantis XDIME-based technology (XML Device Independent Mark-up Extensions, a technology also used within IBM WebSphere Everyplace Mobile Portal), enables an optimal user experience regardless of which mobile device is used by recognizing over 300 attributes of more than 1300 devices and adapting content, in real-time, so that it is optimized for each device.

XDIME is a leading open standards-based technology used by some of the world's leading organizations and is an implementation of open standards developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), including those from the Device Independence Working Group (DIWG). Volantis chairs the W3C DIWG and is also a Founding Sponsor of the recently announced W3C Mobile Web Initiative.

IBM’s PartnerWorld for Industry Networks Program offers Volantis with unmatched reach to the world’s largest organizations seeking open standards-based mobile solutions. To achieve the Industry Optimized level, Volantis has successfully enabled and validated its technology solutions on IBM software and hardware infrastructure. Furthermore, IBM and Volantis are working together to implement IBM WebSphere Everyplace Mobile with major Telecommunications and Wireless service providers.

Matthew Harris, CEO, Volantis, said: “This program and partnership enables us to promote XDIME as the leading technology for device-independent mobile services. With existing Volantis customers across large mobile network operators’ content providers and enterprises, plus the many Fortune 500 customers IBM has signed, XDIME usage is gaining enormous momentum. The combination of IBM and Volantis technology leads the mobile portal industry.”

“We are pleased that Volantis has joined PartnerWorld Industry Networks and are committed to IBM as a partner of choice,” said Buell Duncan, General Manager, ISV & Developer Relations, IBM. “Volantis delivers powerful device-independent mobile solutions, and we are dedicated to working together to best serve our business customers.”

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
