Sun has signed up two top IT consulting firms to promote Java projects, in an effort to increase the product's uptake in corporates.
Andersen Consulting and Cambridge Technology Partners will employ consultants specifically trained in the Java language in offices round the world and will promote it as the platform of choice for building corporate Intranet applications.
"We recognise the power of Java to transcend traditional IS problems such as platform incompatibility and outrageous system administration costs," said CTP vice president Gordon Brooks. The company has already placed Java teams in five 'Java competency centres' in offices in the US and London. These centres will focus on developing Java applications for competitive advantage.
Andersen is setting up Java centres of expertise in three US sites and Hong Kong, initially.
