REDMOND, Wash., June 4 /CNW/ -- K2 today launched the Underground,
http://www.k2underground.com, a community-driven Web site designed to empower
K2 users and partners.
"K2 built this site and will continue to support it, but the Underground
will really evolve at the direction of our community," says Chris Geier, K2
global evangelism program manager. "The users own it. In a lot of ways, we are
turning it over to them, and we are sure there's great value in that."
The new K2 software platform, codenamed "BlackPearl," enables developers
and business users to use information that already exists within their systems
and processes that have already been built to rapidly create flexible
applications that span employees, departments, organizations and
The Underground gives new and experienced K2 users a place to discuss
ideas, ask questions and share solutions. The site will feature blogs, forums,
special interest groups, articles, tips and more. The site will also host K2
calendars, events and user group information.
"The Underground was established to give our customer and partner
community new ways to connect and share so that those who have made an
investment in K2 can take it to the next level," Geier says.
With the Underground launch, K2 also announced its Insiders program. K2
Insiders, about 20 people chosen from around the world based on their advanced
K2 platform expertise and historical work in the K2 community, will drive much
of the content on the Underground site. Insiders are not K2 employees, but
through their community activities, they will help others solve problems,
discover new capabilities and get more value from their K2 deployments.
K2 provides the platform for a new generation of users to collaboratively
assemble dynamic business applications from reusable items. K2-based solutions
are deployed by a growing number of the global Fortune 100, and since the
release of its first software in 2000, K2 has helped clients in more than 40
