Twilio and Parse Partner to Bring Cloud Communications to Parse Cloud Code

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Twilio (http://www.twilio.com), the market leader in cloud communications, today announced a partnership with Parse (https://www.parse.com), the leading mobile app platform, to make Twilio's voice and messaging APIs easily available to users of Parse's Cloud Code with the launch of Twilio Cloud Module.

The Twilio Cloud Module is the first of many Parse integrations that are upcoming. These modules will make it easier than ever before to develop mobile applications that integrate with many third party services.

For developers whose apps require features such as interactive voice response, mobile app distribution via SMS, call automation or two-factor authentication, Twilio's simple REST API delivers a flexible, scalable and reliable way to access global telecommunications networks.

"We've always loved Twilio and folks at Parse have used it for many projects in the past so I'm incredibly excited about this partnership." said Ilya Sukhar, CEO and co-founder of Parse. "It's just such a natural fit. Many mobile apps need telephony features, especially SMS. Our new Cloud Module makes it dead simple to hook up your mobile app to Twilio without having to maintain any intermediary servers at all. Sending an SMS is literally one line of code. Together we're working to revolutionize application development and I'm excited to see what it enables our mutual customers to do in the future!"

"Parse is an excellent platform for developers," said Twilio CEO Jeff Lawson. "With Twilio Cloud Module, developers can bring their voice and SMS apps to market and scale their businesses faster than ever--we can't wait to see what Parse developers build with Twilio."

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
