Microsoft Invites responsiveX to the Windows Azure Circle Partnership

Chicago, IL, August 31, 2012 — responsiveX is excited to announce that they have recently been named a Microsoft Windows Azure Circle Partner. Only a small number of Microsoft Partners worldwide have been named Windows Azure Circle Partner’s and responsiveX is honored to be among that elite group of Microsoft Partners. Windows Azure Circle Partners are those who have a commitment to and focus on cloud computing. They must also have a proven history of outstanding service and performance helping customers adopt and develop applications using Microsoft’s Public Cloud platform, Windows Azure.

The Windows Azure Circle program is close to a year old, and was created to help Microsoft customers identify the most experienced and qualified Microsoft Partners in the field of cloud computing when needing consulting and development services. responsiveX has offices in Chicago, IL, Oak Brook, IL and Milwaukee, WI and helps customers with some of the largest, broadest and uniquely challenging Windows Azure implementations in the world. “At responsiveX, the Cloud is second nature for us. We have zero on-premise servers. We try to do everything using Cloud services, including our back-end accounting systems, CRM, HR and recruiting, collaboration and even our phone system,” says Eric D. Boyd, Founder and CEO of responsiveX. “This gives us more time to focus on growing our business, because we spend less time managing infrastructure and plumbing. We love to help customers achieve the same benefits we experience using Cloud platforms like Windows Azure.”

responsiveX was selected as a Windows Azure Circle Partner after demonstrating deep technical expertise in cloud computing and Windows Azure along with their commitment to serving customers and leading innovation through the use of cloud technologies.

Eric D. Boyd Invited to Present on Emerging Development Technologies at This Year’s Heartland Developer Conference

CHICAGO, IL, August 29, 2012 — September 5th-7th will mark Omaha Nebraska’s ninth annual Heartland Developer Conference (HDC) and Eric D. Boyd, Founder and CEO of responsiveX, will be presenting on developing HTML5 applications in the Cloud. Eric’s HTML5+Cloud Hands-on-Lab sold out quickly, and as a result, he will also present an abbreviated one-hour breakout session on Thursday, September 6th at 10:15am for those who could not attend the Hands-on-Lab.

HTML5 is an emerging technology with growing adoption and support. At the end of last year, Strategy Analytics predicted by 2013, worldwide sales of HTML5-enabled mobile devices will reach a billion units, which will triple the 2011 count of 336 million devices. “With the increasing adoption of HTML5 in the browser, the growing number of HTML5 enabled mobile devices and the organizational pressure to increase agility, HTML5 and Cloud Computing are two very important innovations for today’s software developers.” Eric said. “HTML5 is not only significant in the browser, but it is gaining momentum for native app development too using tools like PhoneGap and even vendor supported app development with Microsoft’s Windows 8.”

HDC started as a one day event in Des Moines, Iowa back in 2003 with only 100 attendees. Last year, HDC grew to over 600 attendees and is expecting similar attendance this year. HDC is a quality event that is on par with the most prestigious events in the tech industry. “I’m honored to have been invited to present at this year’s Heartland Developer Conference” said Eric. “HDC is one of the leading software development conferences in the Midwest and I’m excited to share my knowledge and experiences on developing HTML5 and Cloud apps with this year’s attendees.”

Along with Eric’s Hands-on-Lab and breakout session, there are a number of other HTML5, Cloud, Web and Mobile development sessions, including Friday’s opening keynote with Joe Stagner.
