The first wireless Internet application developer destination with global reach will officially debut at CTIA's Wireless World 2000, Feb. 28-March 1 in New Orleans. AnywhereYouGo.com opens with offices in Dallas and London and plans to add Helsinki and Tokyo operations later in the year.
AnywhereYouGo.com is the premier global business hub for developers and IT decision makers creating and deploying applications for Web-enabled wireless devices. The site provides information, tools, community and other resources vital to businesses developing applications using WAP, Bluetooth and Web clipping for data-enabled phones, PDA's, and other wireless devices.
This market is large and growing quickly:
AnywhereYouGo.com is being launched by Internet business consultant Lee Wright and People/Design/Technology, the business and technology strategy boutique focused on the Internet that he founded in 1997. The firm's staff is comprised of technologists and developers, information designers, project managers, technical writers, and distance learning experts drawn from KPMG, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and EDS, among others.
The new venture's London bureau comprises WAPtastic.com, the leading independent WAP resource on the Web that has recently merged with AnywhereYouGo.com. The WAPtastic audience includes developers and IT managers from more than 60 countries. James Pearce, who founded WAPtastic and is now the UK Director for AnywhereYouGo.com, will head the AnywhereYouGo.com European efforts from London.
"We've heard repeatedly from developers that it's too time-consuming to find the information needed to develop applications that work on multiple wireless data platforms. With the launch of AnywhereYouGo.com, we've solved that problem and given handset and equipment manufacturers the single best way to tap the global developer community. By meeting the needs of developers, IT managers, and the wireless industry, we're helping fuel the growth of wireless applications," said Lee Wright, CEO of AnywhereYouGo.com.
AnywhereYouGo.com also addresses one other challenge facing the industry: The shortage of trained staff. According to a new survey of developers and IT managers conducted by WAPtastic, 86% of respondents who are adding staff said that they plan to train Internet developers in order to meet the demand for wireless developers.
"Developers interested in wireless applications face many hurdles today," James Pearce added. "The development community is diverse and fragmented both geographically and technologically and it operates at the intersection of the telecom, media and computer industries. By covering wireless development across multiple protocols, devices and continents, AnywhereYouGo makes it much easier for developers to focus on what ultimately matters: Application development and deployment."
AnywhereYouGo.com will provide the latest wireless applications news with up-to-the-minute news feeds, directories, tutorials, discussion forums, career center, e-commerce opportunities and a host of other valuable benefits. The site will enable application developers, IT decision makers, business developers and marketers to share ideas, test concepts, locate resources, pursue career opportunities and learn how to use new tools and technologies through online training.
