Saltmarch Media and Think88 Form Strategic Partnership to Deliver soapUI Training to India


Bangalore, India, Nov 25, 2009 Saltmarch Media and Think88 today announced a strategic partnership to deliver soapUI training in India. According to the agreement, Think88 will license the 'Introduction to soapUI' and 'Advanced soapUI Pro' training courses to Saltmarch for introduction into Saltmarch's training portfolio.


The two companies will work together to both market and deliver the courses in India starting December 2009. Software developers, architects, QA testers and IT managers can all benefit from using soapUI to thoroughly test their Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), Web, and REST services. "soapUI is well adopted in the Indian IT marketplace, and there's great interest in training on the product and related methodology, especially since effective testing is a cornerstone of agile software development," said Robert Schneider, Principal, Think88.


With this new agreement, classes will now be delivered onsite at client locations for groups of 5 or more, or at an offsite Saltmarch Media location for groups of 20 or more. "We are thrilled to be working more closely with Think88 and we think this agreement represents a great opportunity to benefit our communities and grow our businesses," said Ramakrishna G, Senior VP - Sales & Marketing, Saltmarch Media.


"Most people who download and start working with soapUI only end up using a fraction of this excellent product's capabilities. The course provides a hands-on, immersive learning experience for everyone who wants to use soapUI to test SOA, Web, and REST services for scalability, performance, and reliability," said Robert Schneider. The format of this class is 20% discussion, 80% lab work, with more than 120 hands-on exercises.


Saltmarch Media and Think88 will also offer a 2 Day Mission-Critical Service Testing with soapUI Pro Training Class. "Very few organizations are performing effective, comprehensive tests to ensure that their Web and REST services are up to the challenge. In this advanced training course, youll see how to use the powerful capabilities of soapUI Pro to answer important questions prior to placing these services into production," said Robert Schneider.


The advanced class is structured around the highly regarded 7 Fundamentals of Mission-Critical Service Testing methodology, created by Think88 based on interviews with customers in a variety of industries, as well as extensive analysis of the most effective service deployments. Software developers, architects, QA testers and IT managers can all take advantage of the powerful capabilities of soapUI Pro to perform comprehensive testing. This advanced class is a follow on from the introductory soapUI class. The format of this class is 20% discussion, 80% lab work. A laptop computer is required for the hands-on lab sessions. All necessary software will be provided prior to class.
