Altova Launches Partner Program for XML Industry

Jul 22, 2003

Altova Inc., producer of XMLSPY 5, an XML development environment, has announced its new Altova Partner Program and partner portal to assist new and existing partners to create business opportunities for products, services, and solutions which employ Altova's XML development tools, software components, and professional service offerings.

Through the Altova Partner Program, XML product and services companies will have increased access to Altova products, technologies, and technical support. Partners will also benefit from various co-marketing activities designed to help create awareness for joint product or service offerings, through press activities, and other online marketing opportunities. Information about the new Altova Partner Program, including how to join, can be found at Altova's new partner portal, on the Web at:

The new Altova Partner Program consists of four different program categories to fit the business needs of a wide range of partner companies: Software Partners, Consultant Partners, Reseller Partners, and Education Partners. Altova Software Partners are companies that integrate their products with Altova technologies, or offer complementary tools and utilities that leverage XMLSPY 5 and other XML technologies, to help customers create, use, or manage XML enabled software solutions. Altova Consultant Partners include systems integrators and professional service organizations that deliver custom services for application development, implementation, and integration. Consulting Partners use or recommend Altova products as part of a broader IT solution. Altova Reseller Partners generate revenues by selling Altova products as part of their own product catalog offerings, or as embedded technology from within their own software applications. Altova Education Partners include companies and institutions that either teach courses about using XMLSPY 5 or employ the use of XMLSPY 5 as a tool for learning about XML technologies and broader software engineering and Web development topics.
