MONTREAL (Quebec), April 11, 2011 – Alphinat Inc. (TSX-V: NPA), a leader in innovative Software for the Smart Enterprise™, is pleased to announce that Alphinat is part of an early round of adopters of new IBM software that helps companies build their own cloud computing platforms to deliver business benefits in a wide range of industries such as government, banking, insurance, retail and communications.

As an early partner, Alphinat has been able to easily deploy its SmartGuide solution using IBM Workload Deployer. SmartGuide Designer allows customers to create and to render complex web applications without writing a single line of code while enabling quick deployment of Enterprise Applications to the Cloud.

“We are very pleased to have been invited by IBM to participate in this and other IBM cloud initiatives, which allows us to demonstrate SmartGuide’s ability to quickly create, manage & deploy solutions seamlessly to the cloud” reports Philippe Lecoq, President and CEO.

The demand for cloud computing is exploding as organizations seek to expand the impact of IT to deliver new and innovative services while realizing significant economies of scale. The power of the cloud computing model is the ability to harness varying technology investments by enabling rapid and dynamic scheduling, provisioning and management of virtualized computing resources on demand. According to IDC, $17 billion was spent on cloud-related technologies, hardware and software in 2009. IDC expects that spending will grow to $45 billion by 2013. (1)

IBM plans on demonstrating the new offering to more than 8,000 customers and partners during the IMPACT 2011 show in Las Vegas April 10 – April 15. Alphinat has been invited to participate in both IBM Workload Deployer Business and Technical panel sessions planned for this event on Tuesday April 12th at 1-2PM in Cesar’s Palace, Casanova 601 and on Thursday April 14th at 4:45-6PM at Cesar’s Palace, Lido 3003.

About Alphinat

At Alphinat, we are driven by the passion to make application development easy for everyone. It always struck us as odd that the people with the vision of how a finished application should look and behave would only be involved at the start of the process. After all, what better way to ensure a favourable outcome than to provide those closest to an application’s end-users with a vested interest in its success throughout its development?

That’s why we bring you new ways to empower the right people at the right time in the application development process. At the same time, we’re constantly working to reduce the need to code in order to make application development and maintenance simpler and less error-prone.

So whether you choose to develop your applications with the help of our low-code platform SmartGuide®, kickstart your project using one of our pre-built apps or engage us or one of our partners to do the work for you, we’re here to help you deploy better applications in record time. Visit for more information. We look forward to hearing from you.
