Vivat, a leading enterprise IT consulting firm for Fortune 1000 companies, today announced it has selected rPath’
and the rPath™
Appliance Platform for its clients’
virtual and software appliance needs.
Vivat is a boutique professional services organization focused on Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Enterprise Application Integration. The company entered into a partnership with rPath to complement its existing product and services portfolio. Using the rPath solution, Vivat is able to help enterprise customers extract value from intellectual property that was thought to be impractical to commercialize. rPath benefits by gaining a partner able to assist customers in the development and maintenance of virtual and software appliances.
“rPath’s technology enables Vivat clients to realize significant efficiencies in their go-to-market strategies. Software and virtual appliances can be distributed seamlessly to new markets and customers,” said Vivat’s Chief Commercialization Officer, Joel Davne.
The rPath-Vivat partnership has already had initial success. Vivat approached an existing Fortune 500 customer in the Information and Delivery Services sector about unlocking a key information tool used primarily for internal purposes. Vivat proposed utilizing rPath technology to facilitate the commercialization of this solution to permit the tool’s distribution to new markets and customers. The result was a new appliance offering, allowing Vivat’s customer to extract value from their existing legacy applications.
“By providing clients with an automated and repeatable method for building and maintaining virtual appliances, Vivat is adding to its already robust product and services portfolio,” stated Sara Spivey, VP of Marketing and Business Development at rPath. “Using the rPath solution, Vivat can help enterprise clients package and commercialize intellectual property, something that was previously considered impossible.”
