PERFORM gives resellers around the world a lucrative growth opportunity to partner with the industry leader in cloud and mobile testing
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 14, 2013 – SOASTA®, Inc., a leader in mobile and cloud testing, today announced the launch of the global PERFORM partner program. PERFORM is designed to accelerate a partner’s growth in revenue and market share by combining access to SOASTA’s disruptive, industry-leading technologies, aggressive financial incentives and comprehensive, flexible training and enablement programs. The new PERFORM program will equip Value Added Resellers (VARs), Managed Service Providers (MSPs), complementary technology partners (ISVs), and Systems Integrators (SIs) to deliver the full SOASTA platform of products in key markets worldwide. Potential new partners should immediately submit their application to www.soasta.com/partners.
“With the escalating growth of the ‘app economy,’ we are seeing an explosion in the demand for automated testing solutions to provide an exceptional user experience while also safeguarding web and mobile revenue,” said Jay Hakami, President & CEO, SKY IT Group. “SOASTA has the right mix of tools to meet this rapidly growing market need correctly, and that’s why we are excited to make available and expand our solutions portfolio within cloud testing with SOASTA. We can dramatically grow market share, build both our revenue and reach with SOASTA.”
PERFORM is a direct reflection of SOASTA’s approach to delivering disruptive products in emerging high-growth market segments, and will provide partners the support and resources necessary to successfully offer the complete SOASTA platform, including CloudTest, TouchTest and mPulse. PERFORM is built on a globally consistent engagement model designed to accelerate participating partners’ time to revenue and increase the velocity in customer relationships, while still allowing for the flexible adaptation to each partner’s business model – no matter if they are vendor agnostic, a product reseller, a complimentary technology vendor or an MSP.
“Appcelerator believes all development will become mobile development, mobile drives the key requirements for the cloud, and mobile drives the need for a new platform” states Jeff Haynie, Appcelerator CEO, “This requires a different approach and products that are built from the
ground-up for a mobile first world. Appcelerator chose to partner with SOASTA since their product was created in a post-smartphone world to reduce release cycles, improve overall application quality and ensure the best possible end user experience.” “
“Working with SOASTA has been a seamless process,” said Rutesh Shah, CEO, InfoStretch. “SOASTA is a leader in performance testing, and we are glad to leverage them to fill strategic needs in our mobile solution portfolio to offer our clients the best-of-breed.”
A recent IDC MarketScape* noted that SOASTA’s “excellent partner program to augment the company’s offerings ranges from targeted testing providers to major cloud hosting providers and also to systems integrators (like IBM and CSC) and technology partners like Microsoft and CA Technologies.” An excerpt of the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Cloud Testing and Application Software Quality SaaS 2012-2013 Vendor Analysis, is available here www.soasta.com/idc2013.

With PERFORM our partners can build their revenue and their reach with the de facto industry leader in cloud and mobile testing.”
