An important part of Sun's mobile enterprise solutions, the Macalla Mobile
Commerce platform is a next-generation open and modular software platform
for secure, scalable and consistent multi-device delivery of information and
transaction systems across multiple digital channels.
"Formalizing this agreement with Sun Microsystems is a natural evolution in
the relationship between the two organizations." According to Niall O'Cleirigh, Chief Executive Officer for Macalla. "Having worked together very successfully on a number of deployments including Postbank Telfort, our joint technologies have been proven in highly complex and demanding environments. This alliance, backed up by the reputation we have with Sun, will give Macalla increased exposure to potential customers amongst Sun's banking and mobile operator sectors."
"We are pleased to be working with Macalla to offer customers a device-independent platform, massive scalability, open interfaces and rapid deployment for their mobile enterprise initiatives," said Nasser Iravani, Director of Mobile Enterprise Solutions, Sun Microsystems. "Leveraging Sun's Services on Demand model and Macalla's Mobile Commerce Platform, Postbank was able to execute on its multi-channel retail strategy, improving customer growth opportunities through a new, low-cost channel," he continued.
