ProtonMedia and LiquidHub partner to combine ProtoSphere with SharePoint and OCS

The DIA 2010 conference kicked off this week from Washington, D.C. And this morning we made our big announcement from the show: our new partnership with LiquidHub.

LiquidHub is a global technology consulting and systems integration firm that focuses on health care, life sciences, financial services, and other major sectors. We're working together to combine ProtoSphere with Microsoft SharePoint and OCS (Office Communications Server) at life sciences organizations worldwide.

The solutions we jointly develop will give life sciences companies a virtual workplace that is based in ProtoSphere and integrates with SharePoint and OCS. More details on that to come, but in the meantime, you can read our press release announcing our partnership for some other info.

Speaking of Microsoft, tonight is the Microsoft Life Sciences reception at DIA. I'm looking forward to attending -- and not just for the beer and food. ;) It promises to bring together a great group of folks from Microsoft and across many areas of life sciences, including drug discovery, medical devices, clinical trials, and others.

If you're planning on coming and want to say hi, keep an eye out for a guy that looks like this avatar. And if that doesn't help, just look for an old hippy guitarist. ;)



ProtonMedia and LiquidHub Form Technology and Services Partnership

Companies team to provide life sciences organizations 3-D virtual collaboration and communication solutions integrated with Microsoft SharePoint and OCS

LANSDALE, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ProtonMedia, the developer of the ProtoSphere virtual collaboration environment for the high-performance workplace, and LiquidHub, a global technology consulting and systems integration firm, have formed a technology and services partnership. Under the terms of the agreement, ProtonMedia’s ProtoSphere technology will be the basis for 3-D virtual collaboration environments. LiquidHub will provide consultancy, integration, and deployment services to combine ProtoSphere with SharePoint and OCS at life sciences organizations around the world. The result will give life sciences companies an integrated, high-performance workplace that lets them collaborate and accelerate decision-making across their product lifecycles.

“SharePoint and OCS are high value technology platforms for life sciences,” says Rob Kelley, COO of LiquidHub. “However, companies can gain significant benefit from using virtual collaboration technologies to extend their investment in these platforms and address challenges surrounding communications and product lifecycle management. By combining our extensive experience in SharePoint and OCS systems integration with ProtonMedia’s ProtoSphere technology, we’re giving life sciences companies solutions to overcome these challenges, while lowering costs.”

ProtoSphere is the only 3-D virtual collaboration environment to integrate with SharePoint. And LiquidHub's experience in designing, planning, and implementing Microsoft collaboration solutions for life sciences organizations ensures rapid time to value.

“We see natural synergies between LiquidHub and ProtonMedia,” says Ron Burns, CEO of ProtonMedia. “Both companies are Microsoft partners and have established bases in life sciences. By combining our virtual collaboration technology and LiquidHub’s SharePoint and OCS systems integration expertise, we’re enabling life sciences organizations to speed decision-making across their product lifecycle, cut costs, and create more effective workplaces.”
