Mendix's App Platform Enriches UST Global's Technology Portfolio, Enabling Enterprises to Tackle Business Challenges With Rapidly Modeled Custom Solutions -- and Instant Deployment to the Cloud

ALISO VIEJO, CA and BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - April 03, 2014) - UST Global, a leading IT service provider, today announced a new partnership with Mendix, the Enterprise App Platform as a service company. This relationship provides CIOs a new option for modernizing their IT app development, deployment and management strategy. With global operations with presence in the United States, India, Spain, and Singapore, UST Global works with large clients in sectors including healthcare and insurance, retail, financial services, and telecommunications to implement technology solutions that improve not only IT performance and security, but help achieve critical business objectives.

Increasingly companies face business challenges requiring responsive IT systems that deliver immediate business value. UST Global and Mendix bring together the experience, expertise and enabling platforms to accelerate development of business-centric enterprise-class applications where speed and future flexibility are critical.

"Mendix app development is disruptive to traditional IT methods and gives new capabilities to help IT be a better business partner," said Mark Rogers, VP of Business Development of Mendix. "We see UST Global leading the charge to help forward-thinking CIOs prepare for urgent and dramatic reshaping of their apps to meet the needs of business leaders."

The new partnership will focus on the following:

  • A new dedicated service line -- UST Global's new service line brings together business engineers and app development expertise to improve IT-business collaboration and achieve faster, more predictable business results.
  • The Mendix App Platform -- Mendix provides a complete platform to design, build, deploy and operate custom business applications. The platform's visual, model-driven development approach allows UST-Global to rapidly model web and mobile applications with inherent business processes, workflows, data transformations and integrations to existing systems without traditional coding. These applications are not only deployed faster -- in weeks, not quarters -- they are also more agile and future proof due to auto-documentation and simple no-code modification. 
  • Cloud Computing -- This offering helps customers quickly capitalize on the benefits of cloud computing. UST Global will utilize Mendix's application platform as a service allowing clients to build, share and run custom apps in the cloud without being dependent on traditional IT resources. This not only increases the agility of the organization but enables collaboration and unlocks the creative potential of an entire workforce, turning IT into a powerful enabler of the business.

"UST Global has a strong and deep client base where accelerated alignment and delivery of Apps to the needs of the New Age customer is critical. We strongly believe that Mendix will be a significant tool that propels IT innovation," says Krishna Prasad, CSO of UST Global.
