Tech Mahindra Joins GENBAND's Kandy Partner Ecosystem

February 04, 2015

GENBAND, a real time communications software developer, has announced that Tech Mahindra has joined GENBAND’s Kandy Partner Ecosystem.

"Tech Mahindra is an important strategic alliance partner who understands the business impact and transformative power of rich, immersive real time communications," GENBAND Executive Vice president of strategy and cloud services and Kandy Founder Paul Pluschkell said. "We're already working with Tech Mahindra on several projects and are collaborating on numerous other large opportunities that will bring these disruptive technologies to market."

Kandy is a communications Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) to build real-time contextual communications applications using integrated Software Development Kits (SDKs), APIs and other tools to allow developers to focus on building applications.

Developers can embed live video capabilities into their apps.

"We teamed with GENBAND because Kandy combines the best of both a carrier-strength backbone and a leading-edge PaaS that can quickly deploy real time communications capabilities across every industry and every business process,"  Ranganath R. Iyengar, head of product engineering at Tech Mahindra, said. "We look forward to helping our customers create new sources of value and revenue from the Kandy toolset."

Tech Mahindra isn’t the only organization impressed with Kandy. TMC’s own WebRTC Conference and Expo gave it the “Best All Around.”

Tech Mahindra has a product engineering base that ranges from devices to CVEs to transport networks. The company, one of the top five IT companies worldwide, will be able to tap into new markets by offering more advanced communications options.

GENBAND is also holding a contest, the Kandy Communications Challenge. Developers can win up to $30,000 in prize money by submitting a Kandy-powered app. Categories range from “Best Student App,” “Best Business App” and “Most Addictive Kandy.” Entrants have until April 23. GENBAND will announce the winners at its Perspectives15 Customer & Partner Summit in Orlando, FL in May.
