Telefónica Digital announced a partnership with FeedHenry to provide enterprise customers with a one-stop shop for creating, managing and securely integrating mobile apps, hosted in the cloud.
Telefónica will offer FeedHenry’s cloud-based mobile application platform alongside its Instant Servers enterprise-grade Infrastructure-as–a-Service solution, which is optimized for mobile and M2M applications.
The partnership will enable Telefónica’s European customers to design, build and manage mobile applications hosted in the cloud.
For enterprises, where mobile apps and cloud computing are quickly becoming critical, this agreement will give organisations the ability to leverage the power of mobile and cloud to improve productivity and deliver new revenue streams.
This represents further collaboration between the two companies following a strategic agreement beginning last year to bring FeedHenry’s Mobile Application Platform to corporate customers in key Telefónica markets. The service is currently available through O2 in UK, Ireland and Germany.
“Corporate IT and app development teams will now be able to build applications for the most demanding consumer and enterprise users then quickly and easily deploy them securely to the cloud,” said Cathal McGloin, CEO at FeedHenry.
One of several areas of synchronicity between the two companies is the focus on utilising the most advanced high-performance server-side technology available to build superior solutions.
By sharing a vision for cloud computing and utilising Node.js technology in their respective products, Telefónica and FeedHenry have tightly aligned solutions offering advantages such as easier development, faster integration and quicker hosting, resulting in getting products to market faster and at less expense.
Tim Marsden, director horizontal cloud, M2M and alliances at Telefónica Digital, said: “Our goal is to accelerate the availability of mobile-optimised, cloud-based services for app development and management, giving full access to cloud services like storage, security, caching, and server-side business logic.”
