BLOOMFIELD, NJ – July 21, 2010 – Surround Technologies announces that they have extended their partnership with Agilysys NV, LLC to accelerate the implementation of their cloud strategy. Agilysys will use the next generation of the Surround Accelerator™ Development Solutions to move their Guest 360™ property management system to a cloud enable solution.
Surround Technologies accelerates software development, specifically the development of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) applications. The Accelerator line of products represents a collection of Microsoft .Net development solutions for Windows, IBM Power, Unix, and Linux platforms. The latest version extends capabilities for a client’s Private Cloud deployment and for Windows Azure, Microsoft’s Cloud Platform.
The Surround Accelerator™ Development Solutions provide developers with a more productive development environment that produces high-quality, open applications, while accelerating the adoption of new technologies for both the developers and the organization.
Customers use the Surround Accelerator™ Development Solutions as the basis for their application framework. In partnership with Surround Technologies, these customers can achieve both a vision for how software should be written, and a set of tools for developing software that realizes this vision. Surround’s flexible n-tier architectural frameworks promote agility by seeking to eliminate waste, amplify productivity with shorter iteration cycles, and allows for more feedback in the development process. These frameworks enable a lean process in application development, an effort that results in a well-architected, mature SOA application, allowing more efficient integration to multiple technologies including those related to Microsoft, Linux, Java, IBM and Oracle.
“Surround Technologies has partnered with a variety of software solution providers such as Agilysys, to assist them to continue to provide their customers with the agility and adaptability to meet their business demands, both for today's needs and for tomorrows.” Said Lee Paul, CEO of Surround.
“Hospitality customers are looking for agility and the ability to meet new business demands quickly. With the Surround Accelerator we are more prepared to meet those expectations. For Guest 360™, our newest property management system application, we intend to adapt to the variety of deployment models projected for the future. Working with Surround Technologies helps by giving Agilysys added flexibility in how we deliver our solutions,” said Tina Stehle, senior vice president and general manager of Agilysys Hospitality Solutions Group.
