mimacom ag announces Strategic Partnership with ICEsoft for Europe to deliver Ajax Rich Internet Application Integration
Partnership extends mimacom’s model-based Java EE Development Platform with ICEfaces® RIA capabilities

ZURICH, SWITZERLAND - mimacom ag, the Swiss Open-Source Software Integrator, today announced the formation of a partnership with ICEsoft, a leading provider of standards-compliant, AJAX-based solutions for deploying pure Java, Rich Internet Applications, to complement mimacom’s Rich Client and Business Intelligence Applications Development Platform. ICEsoft is the sponsor of the popular ICEfaces Open Source AJAX framework used by enterprises around the world to deliver RIA capabilities in pure Java. The new agreement also establishes mimacom as an ICEfaces Enterprise Partner responsible for the distribution of ICEfaces support agreements and professional services in the European market.

“mimacom and ICEsoft have a shared commitment to provide technology solutions designed to make Java Application Development and Application Portfolio support simpler and more cost effective” said Joseph Fisher, Head of Business Development for mimacom. “Our customers have significant Java Development needs outside of mimacom’s current functionality, so ICEsoft’s offerings can be a natural fit along with mimacom’s edoras® enterprise solutions.”

ICEfaces is a powerful AJAX framework already being used by more than 66% of the top 100 Global and US Fortune 100 companies. The integration of edoras® rich client platform with ICEfaces allows mimacom to incrementally streamline application development and enhance business and operational performance by delivering rich, thin-client application interfaces to complex back-end systems.

“Our Partnership with ICEsoft is extremely important to us” said Kurt Amacher, CEO of mimacom AG. “ICEsoft has established a solid reputation for exceeding customer expectations as a leading provider of AJAX Technology and we bring the same level of service to the customers we serve.”

“We are seeing an ever increasing demand from our customers for enriched enterprise applications that can be delivered or accessed via a conventional web browser”, says Brian McKinney President and CEO of ICEsoft Technologies. “mimacom ag with their extensive services experience in this space coupled with their edoras® product offering is perfectly situated to help meet this demand.”

Enterprise customers such as Swisscom, Swiss Post and the Swiss Military are among the mimacom customers currently benefiting from Java EE application development based on edoras®. The development platform’s Core Meta Model, designated graphical and work-flow designers, and adherence to “convention over configuration”, enable mimacom to quickly and easily develop, deploy and support Java applications for these clients. With the combined functionality of ICEfaces and edoras®, these benefits will expand to a broader array of applications including Web Clients with AJAX “Push” technology.

mimacom and ICEsoft will be on display at the Jazoon Java Technology conference in Zurich on June 23-26. Micha Kiener, Head of Research and Development at mimacom and Ted Goddard, Head Architect at ICEsoft present “AJAX Push for Revolutionary Enterprise Applications”.
