Orasi Software has partnered with Kony to expand its software, support, training and consulting services to provide a complete suite of services for the application lifecycle. With the partnership, Orasi will provide sales, implementation services, training, consulting and support for Kony’s mobile development solutions.
The partnership is part of Orasi’s expansion of its expertise in testing and quality assurance as a software reseller and professional services company. Through industry affiliations such as the Kony partnership, Orasi offers automated testing, application performance management/intelligence, test data management and coverage, continuous delivery/integration and mobile testing technologies focusing on the complete software quality lifecycle.
With the Kony announcement, Orasi is gaining access to the largest provider focused purely on cross-platform enterprise mobility solutions. Kony daily serves more than 250 million mobile app users worldwide and manages more than 3.4 billion user sessions annually. Among the app development tools that Orasi will offer include Kony Visualizer and Kony Studio, which are specialized tools used to build cross-platform mobile applications. Orasi will also sell and deploy Kony MobileFabric, a collection of services used to achieve and manage integration with back-end platforms.
“Kony offers a best-in-class mobile development platform for ‘Write once, deploy many’ mobile applications, especially where complex enterprise integration is required,” said Orasi AVP, Emerging Technology, Joe Schulz. “Furthermore, Kony is a natural extension to the mobile testing practice we already have. It fits well with our mobile testing vendor solutions and is a great complement to our SAP and continuous delivery practices. Orasi wants to help its customers address the challenges of mobile development, and we view Kony as the best solution.”
“With the explosive growth and impact of mobile devices, many companies have placed mobile as a top priority for their businesses. We are excited to partner with Orasi to help organizations to quickly adopt mobility and rapidly deliver mobile solutions for their customers, partners and employees,” said Les Russell, Vice President, Worldwide Partner and Channel, Kony, Inc.
Russell, continued, “The comprehensiveness of coverage across the full enterprise mobility lifecycle is Kony’s unique differentiator, and partnering with Orasi will enable customers to take advantage of the breadth of mobile solutions that we can offer together. No one in the industry provides this same breadth of capability across all enterprise mobility lifecycle phases. These components of a full development lifecycle portfolio can be used individually or combined to streamline workflows, accelerate development timeframes and lower total costs of ownership.”
Among the Kony solutions Orasi will be offering are:
Kony Visualizer is a mobile-first app design and prototyping solution that enables business users, designers and developers to collaborate and rapidly create native and Web mobile app experiences for iOS, Android, Windows and the Web. The mobile app tool allows users to design native and web user experiences for smartphones, tablets and desktop in a real-time, collaborative environment with Visualizer's cloud-based mobile app designer and app prototyping tool.
Kony’s Visualizer provides the ability to:
- Leverage a WYSIWYM interface for mobile phone, tablet and desktop app design: "What you see is what you mobilize."
- Create rich native UI with the Kony framework.
- Define engaging user experiences, including navigation, animation and deep device capabilities.
- Preview apps in real time across iOS, Android and desktop with a next-gen app prototyping tool.
- Integrate with the Kony Studio development environment.
As an enterprise-grade platform for developing and deploying HTML5, native or hybrid mobile apps using open and standards-based tools, Kony Studio's IDE software offers a cross-platform mobile development toolset to build, debug and deploy next-generation mobile apps from a single code base.
Supporting more than 10,000+ smartphones, feature phones and tablets running Android, iOS, Windows and Blackberry, Kony Studio allows companies to design, build and test new channels in 80% less time, defining unique experiences for mobile and desktop and delivering engaging and consistent app experiences across all channels.
MobileFabric is a mobile middleware solution that offers an enterprise-grade set of secure, open, standards-based mobile services offerings that enables enterprises to significantly reduce costs and achieve more than 65 percent reduction in time to market.
Offering exceptional agility, Kony MobileFabric unifies multiple infrastructures and platforms - including offering a mobile back-end as a service (MBaaS), application programming interface management and platform as a service (PaaS).
“As customers adopt more agile practices, it’s a natural extension for Orasi to integrate mobile development with its offerings,” Schulz said. “With the addition of Kony’s industry-leading products to our portfolio, we will be poised to help Orasi customers integrate all the process and tooling necessary for end-to-end quality in their mobile practices. At the same time, we can help Kony customers not only build mobile apps quickly but also make sure the apps work as expected and satisfy user requirements.”
