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.”

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
