Aspelle, a corporate data solutions vendor spun out of Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein, has announced the launch of its first product and customer contract win.
The Aspelle Everywhere product is based on Microsoft's .NET framework and is designed to help businesses provide employees, customers and partners secure anytime, anywhere access to internal corporate resources. The product, which began life as an internal IT project between DrKW and Microsoft, has been selected by agricultural, financial and industrial conglomerate Cargill to improve communication and productivity.
"To compete successfully in a global market, businesses must be able to guarantee that employees have access to corporate applications from any location; at anytime," comments Simon Johnson, vice president of technology and co-founder of Aspelle. "With more than 90,000 employees in 57 countries, Cargill exemplifies the complex needs of today's businesses. Aspelle Everywhere's ability to perform successfully in a user environment as demanding as Cargill's is a true testament to its capabilities."
Leveraging Cargill's existing IT infrastructure, Aspelle Everywhere allows employees to securely access selected internal applications, regardless of their physical location. Requiring only a Web browser and an Internet connection, the platform provides access to a range of applications and data including Web, Unix, Windows and legacy systems.
