As a part of ongoing efforts to provide customers with an open portal platform to build integrated activity-based composite applications, Plumtree Software has announced the launch of an expanded, global channel program called Synergy Alliance. With the industry focused on service-oriented architecture and composite applications, Plumtree aims to provide a service-oriented environment for its channel partners to deliver applications that leverage the capabilities of Plumtree's portal solutions. Plumtree supports both J2EE and .NET, providing Synergy Alliance partners with the ability to develop applications and portal solutions designed to meet customers' needs, while not limiting their development to a single platform.
Synergy Alliance builds upon the success that Plumtree and channel partners, such as CIBER, Inc., Deloitte Consulting LLP, Enterpulse, HandySoft Global Corporation, PPC, Rapidigm, and Theoris have achieved building composite applications and portal solutions for customers. The program allows channel partners to benefit from Plumtree's single development platform for J2EE and .NET, and quick development cycles, and provides opportunities to increase services revenue through Plumtree engagements. Synergy Alliance offers a variety of resources such as demonstration software, a designated partner manager, technical and sales training, quarterly business reviews, pre- and post-sales support, lead referral program, marketing funding, partner-only Web site and posting capabilities on Plumtree's corporate Web site.
