MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--()--ITOCHU Technology and Kaazing, leading provider of technology for the living web, today announced that the two companies have entered into a partnership. By working with Kaazing, ITOCHU Technology can now offer its customers in Japan and the United States the most secure, real-time web communications platform for new enterprise applications.

“Real-time, living web applications are worldwide, and ITOCHU Technology, with Kaazing, can now help customers bring Web applications to market faster, over much reduced infrastructures while providing the best possible user experience.”

“Being the first to offer Kaazing’s solutions to the Japanese market allows us to continue to build on the leadership we have built over decades by introducing some of the most important, market changing technologies to Japan,” said Shinichi Uemura, President and CEO, ITOCHU Technology – which introduced Sun Microsystems, Cisco Systems, Oracle and Siebel Systems to Japan.

ITOCHU Technology works with companies in financial services, retail, entertainment, and many others and is already working on several projects of Kaazing’s platform. “As the number of Web-connected devices increase in record numbers, our customers are demanding applications that are highly interactive and instantly accessible from anywhere. Kaazing enables them to have immediate, interactive data and applications that can move from enterprise systems to mobile devices seamlessly.”

The Kaazing WebSocket platform is the first enterprise class web communications platform that enables full duplex (or simultaneous two-way) connectivity over the Web without the expensive and data-intensive requirements of the legacy web architecture that has been in place since the early 1990s. Kaazing is dedicated to making possible the living web without the overhead of application servers and middleware.

“We are pleased to forge this strategic relationship with ITOCHU Technology which has such an important presence with Japanese companies,” said Manuel Hoffmann, Kaazing vice president of business development. “Real-time, living web applications are worldwide, and ITOCHU Technology, with Kaazing, can now help customers bring Web applications to market faster, over much reduced infrastructures while providing the best possible user experience.”
