Inc., the Java Platform as a Service (PaaS) innovation leader, today
announced the expansion of the CloudBees
Partner Ecosystem by introducing a new Services Partner Program. The
CloudBees Services Partner Program gives systems integrators (SIs), web
design firms and software development consultants the technology,
marketing and sales tools they need to be successful using the CloudBees
Platform to provide application development, deployment and consulting
services to their customers.
The cloud is changing the way businesses consume information technology.
Service providers must transform as well by delivering new offerings to
their clients and maximizing the business opportunities of the cloud.
With the CloudBees Platform, service providers are empowered to deliver
services across the entire application lifecycle, providing the
opportunity to deliver more value to clients and more revenue to their
The CloudBees Platform provides a model that offers unique
differentiation and competitive benefits to service providers, whether
during the development and/or deployment stages of the application
The development services available on DEV@cloud,
enable service providers to accelerate application development by
gaining immediate access to a fully-provisioned Java platform,
including repositories, continuous integration, testing and user
acceptance. No waiting to procure hardware and other resources, no
hassle to configure the project environment – just start coding.
The runtime services available on RUN@cloud
enable service providers to quickly and easily deploy applications on
behalf of their clients and to manage those applications throughout
the production phase of their lifecycle. This enables services
organizations to extend their value beyond traditional application
development-only offerings. With CloudBees, service providers can
deliver additional value to their clients by supporting application
deployment activities, without having to invest in the IT resources to
The CloudBees Services Partner Program provides:
PaaS integrator partnership – ideal for service providers who
want to use cloud resources for an initial Proof of Concept (POC) and
then proceed with the project. With the CloudBees PaaS, service
providers can build, deploy, monitor and manage customer applications
in the cloud. These partners utilize the DEV@cloud and RUN@cloud
services throughout the entire application lifecycle.
Jenkins Enterprise by CloudBees reseller partnership – designed
for service providers who also want to resell Jenkins
Enterprise by CloudBees. Jenkins Enterprise by CloudBees provides
support and enterprise-class plugins for the world’s most popular
Continuous Integration server. Jenkins Enterprise by CloudBees is
comprised of open source Jenkins, along with additional proprietary
plugins and technical support.
“CloudBees' goal is to help our Services Partners achieve new levels of
success and improve customer satisfaction through the use of CloudBees
technology and their expert services,” said Sacha Labourey, CEO,
CloudBees. “In forming the Services Partner Program and recruiting
quality service providers to be part of it, we enrich the CloudBees
customer experience. CloudBees customers are assured access to
knowledgeable, high-quality service providers, making it convenient for
them to tap local expertise and resources when needed.”
CloudBees Services Partners include qualified service providers from
around the world. The list of founding partners includes:
“At Black Diamond, we help our customers lower their total cost of
development via tooling, SDLC process improvement or outsourced
development. Jenkins Enterprise by CloudBees solves a number of critical
issues many of our customers face as they seek to create enterprise
class CI and build solutions with Jenkins,” said Rich Duncan, President
and CTO of Black Diamond Software. “By addressing fault tolerance,
scalability, job organization and advanced security, Jenkins Enterprise
by CloudBees coupled with enterprise support provides many of the key
ingredients customers need to build out an enterprise-class build
"At Byte-Code we have built our services practice around providing
open source solutions to enterprise organizations, and to having that
solution be the right mix of technology, process and people," said
Davide Panelli, Solutions Architect, Byte-Code. “Aligning ourselves with
CloudBees gives us the best of all worlds: exposure to leading
technology with the CloudBees PaaS, and the ability for our customers to
optimize their agile and scrum processes via Jenkins in the cloud
continuous integration and continuous deployment services."
“At Centrum we see a trend emerging of enterprises trying to run
projects like start ups. Markets are changing so quickly our clients
need to deliver faster to take advantage of opportunities that put them
ahead of their competitors,” said Geoff Bullen, co-founder
of Centrum Systems. “Unlike startups however, they are faced with hugely
complex and integrated systems and processes. In partnership with
CloudBees we offer solutions that leapfrog heritage delivery tools and
processes. PaaS accelerates project start up and enables continuous
delivery. Jenkins Enterprise allows build and release processes to
automated and executed much more frequently.”
“At Empower Agile, we are all about agile values and principles,"
said Danijel Arsenovski, founder, Empower Agile. "Our CloudBees
partnership enables us to help organizations quickly adopt agile
development processes via the CloudBees PaaS -- a ready-to-go agile
platform. Customers can accelerate software projects by fully leveraging
continuous integration, testing frequently and early, and deploying
applications quickly. PaaS is especially helpful inside a traditional
software outsourcing model, where it can help bridge the client-provider
gap by enabling quick feedback cycles and establishing a standardized
development platform for all providers.”
“We are really pleased to partner with CloudBees,” said Dr. Andreas
Wintersteiger, CEO, Objectbay. “Between our expertise in agile software
development methodologies and CloudBees’ ability to instantly deliver
Jenkins-based development services either on-premise or via the
CloudBees platform, we can offer a compelling development-to-deployment
solution for our customers in the DACH region.”
“As agile and Java experts, what appealed to us in a CloudBees
partnership was the deep technical Java expertise CloudBees offers; it
is fully baked into the CloudBees PaaS,” said Antoine Berthelin, Java
Team leader, Soat. “Enterprises today develop many mission-critical
applications in Java. The ability to drive agile processes deep within
an organization in tandem with the instant-on access of Java services
from the CloudBees PaaS allows us to provide tremendous value-add for

As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?

There will be 20 billion IoT devices connected to the Internet soon. What if we could control these devices with our voice, mind, or gestures? What if we could teach these devices how to talk to each other? What if these devices could learn how to interact with us (and each other) to make our lives better? What if Jarvis was real? How can I gain these super powers?

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target - this makes the integration of these separate pipelines and the coordination of software upd...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
