Additional individual modules then integrate with the W2PP to deliver specific business solutions. Wave2 customers are typically newspaper and magazine publishers, advertising agencies, marketers and print production companies who use the software to quickly deploy powerful automated document building solutions. All user interfaces are browser based and the AdPortal B2B and B2C offerings which are centered on self-service advertising also incorporate a transactional payment element. Wave2 therefore needed to work with a partner who could offer security, scalability and the high availability required by such demanding customers. After reviewing their own requirements Wave2 also determined that it was of key importance to select an infrastructure partner with the right profile and capability in order for them to compete and sell more effectively. Partnering with Claranet has enabled Wave2 to offer their customers the necessary security and confidence required when deciding to out-source traditional internal IT functions. Business benefits Following their agreement with Claranet, Wave2 customers now benefit from: • Reduced dependence on internal IT skills • Secure and high availability environments • Lower overall IT infrastructure costs • Secure transactional payment environment in PCI-DSS compliant data centre • A future-proof IT infrastructure environment • Increased flexibility • Ability to scale quickly and to react to market changes • Ability to benefit from new technologies much more quickly Business challenge Wave2 Media Solutions was formed in early 2004 specifically to develop a range of solutions for the automated generation of documents; their mission is to provide software products that will enable publishers, marketers and content providers to save costs and to generate new revenue. By 2010, the shift towards the cloud computing model was really taking hold and Wave2's customers were increasingly enquiring if they were able to offer their services via a SaaS model. As Wave2 grew, it was also becoming more apparent that the company needed to further extend the range of services they could offer to new and existing clients.
