|Intel Partners with int@j and AE-ReSolutions to Drive New Software Initiative In Jordan
|Co-hosted by Intel, int@j and AE-ReSolutions, seminar in Jordan introduces Intel’s latest developer initiative, providing state of the art services to support the growth of the regional software industry
Intel Corporation, together with int@j and AE-ReSolutions concluded the first of a series of seminars designed to spread awareness about Intel’s developer services within the regional software development community.
The seminar, titled “Introductory session to Intel Software Development Products” is part of an ongoing collaboration between Intel and AE-resolutions, where the latter has been trained to provide hands on support to regional developers, enabling them to optimize their software applications to work with Intel’s state of the art computing platforms. The seminar was attended by independent software manufacturers, in addition to corporate developers and representatives of Jordan’s education sector.
‘Intel’s developer services allow software makers to use Intel's latest technologies and resources to enhance the transfer of knowledge, improve their products and enlarge their market’ said Toni Prince, Intel’s Business Development Manager for Telecommunications and ISPs, “As the software industry grows in the Middle East, it has become essential for us to collaborate with regional players to guarantee that all developers are aware of the hands on services, training and support that we can provide to them in order to ensure that their products are ready to run on the latest and most advanced computing platforms of the region. By working with AE-ReSolutions, we can now help local developers optimize their applications for the Intel platform.’
This seminar will be followed by more workshops at the Intel I-lab at the Jordan University, where developers will be able to experiment in depth with Intel’s software tools such as compilers and tuning analyzers, using the different Intel platforms available (Pentium 4, Intel Xeon and Intel Itanium). More events targeting the developer community will also be held in Lebanon, Egypt, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
“Jordan’s position as a regional center for software development is strengthening quickly,” said Ra’ed Bilbessi, CEO of int@j, “Today’s event proves yet again the potential that the Jordanian ICT market represents in the eyes of regional and international players. int@j will continue to support such activities that help foster our local development industry and give our developers access to the latest technologies, services and initiatives.”
As part of its collaboration with Intel, AE-ReSolutions, a branch of Al Bawardi Enterprises (AE) and a member of AE Technology Investment (AETI) group of IT companies will allocate staff to work with developers on testing and porting their applications onto the latest Intel computing platforms. Intel’s Early Access Program also entitles developers to lease state of the art computers as test machines on a yearly basis. “Initiatives such as Intel’s developer services program are highly needed in this fast moving industry,” said Mofeed Qaffaf Business Development Manager, AE-ReSolutions, “In order to sell their products, regional developers need to ensure that these are enabled to work with the latest and greatest technologies. Intel’s developer services program gives local developers access to resources and equipment that they would have not necessarily been able to afford on their own.”
Intel, the world’s largest chip maker, is also a leading manufacturer of computer, networking and communications products. Additional information about Intel is available at www.intel.com/pressroom.
