Telefonica Partners with FeedHenry for Cloud-Based Apps

By Kayvon Ghoreshi

Telefónica Digital today announced a partnership with FeedHenry, allowing Telefónica to offer FeedHenry’s cloud-based mobile application platform alongside its Instant Servers Infrastructure-as–a-Service solution.

This partnership will allow Telefónica’s European customers to design, build and manage mobile applications hosted in the cloud. This can be of use to businesses looking to leverage the power of mobile in order to improve productivity.

The partnership also represents further collaboration between the two companies, building on a deal from last year to bring FeedHenry’s Mobile Application Platform to corporate customers in key Telefónica markets.

“The key to mobile business success in this era of BYOD is to ensure apps are reliable, portable and secure across as many devices as possible and we are seeing increased demand from enterprises seeking cloud-based mobile app platforms to reduce up-front costs and time to market,” said Cathal McGloin, CEO at FeedHenry. “Corporate IT and app development teams will now be able to build applications for the most demanding consumer and enterprise users then quickly and easily deploy them securely to the cloud.”

Both Telefónica and FeedHenry have a similar vision for cloud computing, which has been beneficial to their partnership. Both utilize Node.js technology in their respective products, facilitating easier development, faster integration and quicker hosting.

“The intersection of mobile and cloud is a natural one,” said Tim Marsden, Director Horizontal Cloud, M2M and Alliances at Telefónica Digital. “Our goal is to accelerate the availability of mobile-optimized, cloud-based services for app development and management, giving full access to cloud services like storage, security, caching, and server-side business logic. Our partnership with FeedHenry is an important step for us, helping us to extend our service offering to customers who are embracing mobile as part of their future business strategy."

The partnership is a smart move for both companies. FeedHenry has recently opened a new office located in Staines, England to keep up with increasing demand.
