Newsletter December 2013

The year is coming to an end? That's no reason to go into hibernation! There is some exciting news waiting to be discovered by you: besides a revamped version of the App Monitor that includes helpful new functions, we have really been working flat out for you shortly before Christmas:
We are therefore very happy about the launch of a new feature in Telekom Tropo, the Telekom Tropo Client. With the new function, Click-to-Call buttons can easily be integrated in the website or application and telephone calls can be initiated via the browser.

With this news, we would like to bid you farewell for 2013 and wish you a peaceful and pleasant Christmas and a happy New Year!
We will see you on the other side. ;-)

Newsletter June 2013

Security gaps in IT systems are a nightmare for every enterprise and every developer. They are usually expensive to resolve, and they can also seriously damage a company's reputation – that can be a threat to the very existence of startups and small businesses. If a customer is lost to a competitor, it is not easy to regain trust and get that customer back. That's a fact. To proactively prevent security gaps, we are launching a new service known as Code Analyzer.

Just back from this year's Webinale we are looking forward to a number of other exciting events that will take place in June! In this issue we are also offering a number of exclusive discounts to our newsletter readers.

Newsletter May 2013

It’s a constantly recurring topic and frightens every developer to death: the application or website has been hacked and sensitive information or even customer data have fallen into the hands of the data mafia. And despite the greatest care it happens every day, with even giants of the sector like PlayStation and Sony falling victim to the digital pirates. So what can help and how can you protect yourself? We put ‘Secure Coding’ under the microscope.

At long last: Spring is here – and May is the ideal time to get out of the house and come to the various meetings of the developer scene. We’ve organized some reductions and free tickets for you.
