World's Leading Messaging Company Annouces New Partnership-Based
Ecosystem Designed to Foster Innovation and Co-Development for Telecoms
SAN FRANCISCO, CTIA IT, Sept. 10 /CNW/ - Acision, the world's leading
messaging company, announces the launch of the Acision Innovation Network, a
partnership-based ecosystem that will enable the global communications
community to collaborate on the creation of new applications and services to
advance the way the world communicates.
The Acision Innovation Network features two membership levels: associate
and partner. Associate members will have access to a framework for knowledge
sharing, collaboration and solution development via published, open
interfaces. A select group of companies will be invited to become partners,
with the option to pre-certify their products and carry the "Acision Assured"
brand. These companies will benefit from closer technical assistance,
commercial collaboration and co-development to ensure proven, integrated,
propositions ready for a rapid roll-out.
"Acision's vision to create an ecosystem for innovators is a really
interesting initiative as mobile operators seek to offer their customers new
compelling applications. Acision is already a partner for half of the world's
mobile and broadband operators and this could be a strong incentive for any
applications providers looking to maximise their global market reach. We look
forward to seeing the results of the programme as it develops," said Mark
Newman, chief research officer of research firm Informa Telecoms & Media.
"Acision is making a considerable long-term commitment to build an
effective ecosystem to provide technical assistance in the development,
testing and marketing of new solutions," said Chris Jenkins, executive vice
president, marketing and market development, Acision. "The Acision Innovation
Network will initially focus on the future development of ideas and solutions
across five key areas: mobile messaging, mobile marketing, voice messaging,
converged communications and mobile broadband."
"It is fitting that we are launching the Acision Innovation Network here
in the US at CTIA IT in San Francisco," said Wayne Irwin, President, the
Americas, Acision. "Acision has an established heritage of working with
partners to deliver proven solutions to American operators, and we look
forward to tapping into the rich vein of innovation that runs right across the
United States to Silicon Valley, continuing our history of successful
partnerships and building new opportunities for developers and operators
