BOULDER, Colo., April 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- SendGrid, the leader in application email infrastructure, today announced a partnership with IBM that brings powerful email deliverability and scalability to the IBM Cloud marketplace. Starting today, IBM clients can integrate a simple cloud-based email engine utilizing SendGrid's proven delivery infrastructure into their web and mobile applications.
Email continues to be a backbone of customer signup, authentication and engagement for modern web and mobile applications. With its simple, reliable and scalable email management, delivery and analytics tools, SendGrid helps companies navigate the complexities of application email, including establishing excellent sender reputations, working with ISPs, avoiding SPAM filters and blacklists, and understanding how customers are engaging with email. Developers building on the IBM Cloud can quickly and easily add SendGrid to their web and mobile applications.
The IBM Cloud marketplace offers clients access to more than 100 SaaS applications, IBM's Bluemix platform-as-a-service with its suite of composable services, the powerful SoftLayer infrastructure-as-a-service and IBM's rich intellectual capital and deep industry expertise. This single online destination with a suite of cloud services delivers a new buying experience for clients that enables line of business professionals to deploy new services faster; allows developers to build them with greater speed; and offers IT departments more creative, efficient and lower-cost ways to deliver these services.
"Scaling is one of the most difficult challenges that a company will face because it typically requires additional resources and systems to support the growth," said Laurence Trifon, Director, Business Development, SendGrid. "Access to cloud-based development platforms and infrastructure solutions like email delivery from SendGrid helps removes the complexity of building and maintaining fundamental services so that developers can focus on innovating their own product.
