"Our customers are telling us they need more functionality in digital experience software delivered in the cloud today," said Dennis Rot, Founder and Director of Portico Consultancy. "Businesses want configurable software that integrates with existing IT infrastructure and new applications to power their consumer, partner and employee portals without having to worry about installation, configuration and maintenance. They want to change customer applications on the fly, and have it work on any platform, especially mobile."
IBM Software general manager Marie Wreck said the collaboration demonstrates how an agile software environment in the cloud can serve users, help a company enter new markets and provide a space to test-drive ideas.
