Twilio Joins the Google Cloud Platform Partner Program, Bringing Voice and Messaging to Developers
SAN FRANCISCO, April 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Twilio (http://www.twilio.com) today announced it is joining the Google Cloud Platform Partner Program, integrating Twilio’s communications API platform with Google’s Cloud Platform products to power next generation communications solutions. Twilio is the first solution for voice and messaging to be integrated with Google Cloud Platform, exposing Twilio functionality to Google App Engine developers.
Google App Engine, part of Google’s Cloud Platform, makes applications easy to build, easy to maintain, and easy to scale. Twilio’s communications API platform delivers a flexible, scalable and reliable way to communicate for developers interested in building in-app dialing, conference calling, group texting, mobile app distribution, two-factor authentication, and more. By joining the Google Cloud Platform Technology Partner Program, Twilio has made it easier than ever for App Engine developers to build apps that communicate.
“The modern application is much less a front-to-back stovepipe and much more a web of information that flows through multiple layers of RESTful API calls. This thinking leads to corporate service platforms and third party development ecosystems,” said Jeffrey Hammond, VP and Principal Analyst, Forrester Research, Inc., in the January 2013 report entitled “The Future of Mobile Application Development.” “As a result, modern applications are composites, built from multiple URL endpoints and application frameworks and designed to get to market quickly. And whether it’s Twilio, Google or another vendor, there are more compelling services available for developers to remix every day.”
“By using Google Cloud Platform and Twilio, independent developers and enterprises alike can build and scale real world businesses faster than ever,” said Twilio CEO Jeff Lawson. “The real magic comes from connecting the Twilio API to the App Engine platform to make apps communicate; developers benefit from integrating these two incredibly scalable, robust, and reliable platforms–we can’t wait to see what Google App Engine developers build.”
