The center has been architected to bolster delivery of innovative, market-leading real-time embedded communications solutions
Kandy.io, a communications PaaS provider, announced today that it is opening a new Cloud Center of Excellence (CoE) in Ottawa to deliver the next generation of cloud-based API offerings to global enterprises, communication providers, software vendors and the developer community.
The Center of Excellence will be opened by Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson who will attend the opening ceremony on June 9, 2016 at 9:30 a.m. Mayor Watson had the following to say:
The Kandy Cloud Center of Excellence will be a tremendous addition to our thriving tech landscape. I am proud of our City’s ability to attract world-class R&D companies, thanks to our skilled technology workforce and growing innovation community. I am confident that Kandy will see many benefits derive from its Ottawa location, and that it will have a positive impact on our City.
The 70,000 square foot CoE, which will complement GENBAND’s already-existing Ottawa facilities, boasts a state-of-the-art lab. In addition to the leaders of R&D, product management, security and tech support, and part of their globally distributed teams, the CoE will house newly-hired local employees, many of them new graduates.
The opening ceremony will include an ideathon for customers, employees and local developers. Kandy’s state-of-the-art demo-equipped RV, the Kandymobile, will also be on site, and Mayor Watson will present a prize for the best product presentation.
