TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 6, 2011) -Sangoma Technologies Corporation(TSX VENTURE:STC), a leading provider of hardware and software components that enable or enhance IP Communications Systems for both voice and data, today announced that they will be hosting a webinar on June 8 at 2:00 PM EST, titled, "Determining the 'Right' Development/Deployment Platform for your Voice and Media Applications."
"This webinar is beneficial not only for front line application developers, but also for the companies and decision-makers for whom the application is being developed," said Jeff Dworkin, director of marketing for Sangoma. "There's an old saying: If all you own is a hammer, then every problem looks like a nail. This applies to application development as well. Often times, a company hires someone to develop an application without understanding the development and deployment options. They are then limited in their options to the tools that that developer knows. By understanding the capabilities and drawbacks of a number of solutions, the "right" platform can be selected before the developer is hired to do the job."
The webinar will feature a panel of industry experts, led by Nenad Corbic, vice president of software engineering at Sangoma. Joining Mr. Corbic as part of the expert panel will be: Moises Silva, senior software engineer at Sangoma, Thomas Howe, partner at Embrase Management Consulting and Darren Schreiber, co-founder and CEO of 2600hz.
The panelists will be discussing Open Source alternatives (Asterisk®/FreeSWITCH®) and more traditional "C" based proprietary APIs. They will examine the options of developing and deploying using an XML or Web 2.0 (Ruby, Ruby-On-Rails, Adhearson) type of environment. They will also discuss options for premise, hosted and cloud based solutions.
Specifically, the webinar will examine the following criteria for each environment:
- Ease-of-use and Options for Application Development
- Flexibility and Issues of Vendor Lock-in
- Deployment, Field Maintenance and Upgrade Issues
"Each of these experts will bring a unique perspective to developing and deploying voice and media applications," said Mr. Corbic. "By bringing them together, we hope to spark a balanced discussion that can be a catalyst to additional vendor-neutral discussions that will be a real benefit to those application developers who are working on the front lines by actually solving real business problems for real customers."
As an additional bonus, all registrants for the webinar will be eligible for significant discounts on select Sangoma products until June 30, 2011. For more information or to register for the webinar, please visit: http://www.sangoma.com/about_us/events.html.
